We recently visited New Orleans for the French Quarter Music Festival staying at the Lafayette. It is a charming old boutique hotel located within walking distance to the French Quarter, the Art District and the Garden District. This is exactly what we were looking for. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable with a very...

The staff and service at this hotel are amazing and ever so helpful and friendly. We had travelled here for business interviews and stayed for a full week. The service remained consistent throughout. Very decent hotel.

There is nothing bad we could say about this hotel. The hotel room we were given was on the top floor with a beautiful view of the city. The room was large and comfortable and very clean. We had valet parking and the two gentlemen we dealt with were very informative and helpful. It was $40 a night but it...

I was asked upon check out to leave a review here, so I'm going to be completely honest with you. This hotel was -OK. Quaint, small, and in a good location. About halfway between the French market area and bourbon street. So a 10-15 minute walk regardless. Or you can take the street car that runs directly in front of...

The staff is amazing. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. I was travelling on my own, so had a few questions about where to go/not go and what to do when I checked in. Parking is valet - like all downtown hotels I've stayed in - and it's so nice not to have to worry about where to park and...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary and attend the French Quarter Festival. The staff was very thoughtful and welcoming. They even surprised us with a bottle of champagne. We were on the 6th floor, which was quiet and updated with a large bathroom. Our room, number 601, was on the front of the...

My daughter and I traveled to New Orleans for a college tour to Xavier University. The hotel looks like something out of an Anne Rice novel. The decor was absolutely beautiful!! India the front desk clerk was charming and had nothing but wonderful things to say about the city and the college. There are other hotels in the area but...

I booked in at a reasonable rate and was happy with everything. The room was an adequate size and clean but a bit worn. A few points: No fridge, no microwave, there was a coffeemaker, no fitness center. The bed was comfortable. The lobby was small compared to newer hotels but nice. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Through my...

This was my second time staying at Lafayette Hotel. They again provided me with a wonderful place to rest my head after a long day of exploring the city. The location of the hotel is fairly convenient to the French quarter and is right on the St. Charles line which makes heading uptown a breeze. The rooms provide everything you...

I recently stayed at the Lafayette Hotel, and was quite surprised how our lovely stay turned sour. We arrived around 6:30 PM on a Friday evening, and before valeting the car -- my husband and I weighed out the options of parking our own car, versus having it valeted by the hotel. My husband's first question was "how long does...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
