A very nice place to stay. Close to some great restaurants and not in the middle of the French Quarter. The bar makes great drinks. The food in the restaurant was good. I will definitely stay here again.

The hotel was convenient but the walls are extremely thin and housekeeping vacuums at midnight. I could hear my neighbors entire conversation clear and was startled out of my sleep a few times by noise in the hall. It was hard to sleep with all the noise and commotion. The price was decent and the staff was great but if...

the Old No. 77 is by far the best hotel in downtown New Orleans. The location is perfect for seeing the French Quarter, the aquarium, the casino, and the river. You are literally a ten minute walk from all the sights! But that is not why you stay there - this hotel is gorgeous. The rooms are amazing, newly renovated...

Looks much better on line: quaint, boutique. But is old, has no room furniture. One drawer in entire room. Set up ironing board for table in front of mirror. Very little to no lighting; bathroom mirror = single 25W bulb! Faucet loose, drain malfunctions. Lobby restaurant is diff. company--hotel guests not welcome. Sound strange? Maitre d' unbelievably arrogant. Bar staff...

This is a great -- and unique hotel. It has character, and the staff are very responsive. My only difficulty was the loud creakiness of the floors, which affected my sleep the first night and generally affected my level of comfort.

This is a very hot spot for good reason. The transition from old warehouse to very comfortable common area & guest rooms is accomplished. Definitely search the website for the room of your choice..some have no windows for example. Ours was very comfortable with a beautiful brick wall. The bed was very comfortable and we had two large windows overlooking...

Could be so much more if they took care of their customers.... Rude employees at coffee shop. Room not made up. No bill printed. No toothpicks? Noisy AC! Dark bathroom! Carpet not vacuumed. Nice valet!

room really makes you feel like youve time traveled a bit. clean with 60's retro styling with modern touches. impressed with organic soap, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner. The front desk check in and check out was super efficient with no problems even booking from a 3rd party source. Again awesome and interesting room all the way to the leather...

Bad experience. I DO NOT recommend anybody to stay in this place, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF A HARASSING PERSON THAT WORKS AT THE DOOR OF THE HOTEL. He is a joke guy that indeed invade your privacy ALL THE TIME. Other issues were: late check-in, confusion in setting up the reserved room (numbers of beds), bad quality service and food in...

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.
