There is so much information to take in, in multiple buildings, be sure to allow enough time to appreciate all the displays, movies and aircraft.

The buildings and exhibits are exceptional. Leave at least 3 hours to do this. The videos, photos, and exhibits capture the feel of the times.

The WWII is beyond words - amazing, historical, well done. You will do lots of walking, you really need the majority of a day to take it all in.

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

Sorry no idea about the hotel. But personally if you are visiting New Orleans you are better staying nearer the French Quarter for all other sightseeing, food and drink etc.
