Stayed at the Blake before and after a cruise. The first stay was on the sixth floor. Very large corner room on St. Charles. Our room was clean but not quiet. The St. Charles trolley runs past on a regular basis and the single pane windows do not dampen the sound. On our return we stayed on the ninth floor....

The Blake Hotel is in a great location and the staff was beyond excellent. I have no regrets from my stay here, but if i had one suggestion it would be to update the rooms. They were a bit small for my taste and the bathrooms were out of the 80s and the mattresses on the beds could use replacing....

The standard room I had was clean, quiet, and had a view overlooking Saint Charles Ave. The location was great for me because it was within a comfortable walking distance to the docks and the scenic French Quarter. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!

Location could be better. Hotel was clean and staff friendly. Would stay again as long as the price is under $100. I did not eat at the restaurant but the bar was a very small tiny bar in the hotel. Not worth stopping for a drink with so many other great bars so close.

Wasn't able to sleep due to no power. Room was hot and unbearable. Had to take cold showers before leaving and elevator didn't work properly. And there was no apology from the hotel management. Will never go back!

The power went out in the middle of night. When it was restored at 6:30 AM the lights flickered and smoke detectors woke us up. No apologies were made or anything from staff. Hotel was just okay for price.

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.
