Thank you for the review of the new Holiday Inn Express Downtown New Orleans. The staff and management appreciate the kind compliment on their service. We are sorry that noise from outside the building (at another location) disturbed you. Unfortunately, the sounds outside the hotel from a building site would be completely out of our control. We hope that you... More

I booked this hotel for my daughters 21st birthday weekend. Since we live locally ( within 1 drive) I knew this area to be safer. The Hotel was great. It was just renovated and is decorated with a very modern touch. Bathrooms were pristine, the beds were huge & comfortable and most importantly the room was very clean. It is... More

I was searching for a hotel in the French Quarter for the weekend and stumbled across this hotel. Totally renovated, everything brand new. They gutted the old O'keefe Plaza Hotel and created this Holiday Inn Express from the ground up. Ultra modern, very sheek! All the amenities that you would expect from a five star hotel. When I say brand... More

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.
