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.

My start with The Pelham was a little rough, as I had forgotten my ID in my home state and needed Agoda to transfer the reservation to my fiancée. There was some push back from Agoda and I’m not happy with them, but the Pelham was knowledgeable and helped us dodge some bogus fee

We checked in to our $200 a night room. Tiny, clean room BUT NO WINDOW!!!!! Claustrophobic and unnerving. Called down to see if we could change rooms and we’re told it would be $200 A NIGHT extra. Don’t book here unless you have full disclosure. Interior room means no window.

Currently writing my review from the hotel as that's how annoyed I am. We arrived at the hotel around 10am, dropped our bags off and completed check-in paperwork. The morning receptionist was bubbly and helpful. She said we would receive a text message when our room was

The hotel does not have a shuttle. But the front desk can arrange transport to the cruise port.

The Canal Steet streetcar runs quite close to Common Street and stops at each cross street, you can pay driver on entry. Not sure where train station is, may be easier to use cab.

Personally, I would take a taxi. While the streetcar would be less expensive, I'm not sure it drops within a block of the train station. Plus lifting your luggage up (depending on how much you have) might be a chore. A taxi would be worth a couple bucks more.

Do you have to pay for parking?
We lucked out and got the only free space available across the street. Otherwise, yes you will likely have to pay.

"We asked for a room with a view ."
"Don't hesitate to get a room facing the street; they are very quiet."
"I would definitely recommend the Superior King Room. The room and bathroom are huge, and it is very quiet."
"We were on the first floor. Only problem was trash can noise early in am."
"Recommend upper floors"
