We had a room right on the balcony that made parade viewing amazing! Customer service done right!! We had a small problem with the patio locks that was taken care of very quickly. They were soooo helpful getting across and around the parades when necessary. Small cute hotel with nice rooms!

we loved the location, five blocks from bourbon street and across from a nice park. However rooms are very old dirty carpets and rooms are small. The staff were nice at front desk. Probably won't stay again.

Very convenient for the weekend parades just before Mardi Gras. The parades went right past the front door. 10 minute walk to Bourbon St, so nice and quiet in the evening. The restaurant was booked all days but there are a lot of nice eateries close by (east).

We arrived at our hotel early in the morning and was told the room was not ready. They held our luggage and we scoped out the New Orleans area. We received a call that...

I haven't had an opportunity to review this hotel, but I just have to expose this little gem. I booked a room at this hotel 2 years ago for my birthday and it was the best experience ever! My birthday was during a weekend convention and just about every hotel was booked, so my boyfriend at the time suggested this...

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.
