I love the Omni brand of hotels. The service is always the same no matter where I am. The entire experience is wonderful, the staff is always professional and the service is prompt. I will always select Omni as my first choice.

The hotel was beautiful inside and out. There was valet parking and self park available. It was a perfect location we were near the port to get on our Carnival Cruise after our visit and it also had incredible service!

This was a nice place to stay. The staff was very accommodating and the rooms were nice and quiet. I would stay there again. The bar is small and only open to 11 pm, but that's OK, a lot of places are within walking distance, especially the boardwalk outlet stores.

This was a lovely hotel. The staff was so polite and really accommodating. This is a great location. It is really close to the water (just a couple of minutes because it is across the street). It is also only a 15 minute walk to Jackson Square and 10-15 minutes to bourbon street.

The design of this hotel is such that if the last 2-numbers in your room is low that you have to walk all the way around the hotel on your floor before getting to your room. Very poor design and if you stay there more than one night you will know what I mean. My first stay was my last.

Very classy and comfortable. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The shower had great water pressure! We stayed on a Thursday night so the city was pretty quiet and we got great sleep. No issues with weird hotel room noises or too much quiet (which can sometimes make it hard to sleep). Overall great experience.

My husband and I took a two day trip to New Orleans and chose the Omni Riverfront for our stay. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The location was great and the staff were very accommodating. Our room was clean and inviting which may our stay a memorable one. I will definitely return.

You cannot get it much worse: Food tasting non-descript and pretty bad but in rediculous amounts and servers that do not see you until you have to stand up to remind them of you. Not once but several times. The second dot and reason not rating "terrible" was the company with whom we were there.

This is the perfect location to be within walking distance to all of the French Quarter action but having some peace and quiet at the same time. The arts district around the hotel has a great selection of restaurants, coffee shops, and sights. Room looked as though it was recently renovated and was very comfortable and modern.

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.
