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.

The hotel is in a great area and you can walk to the french quarter. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were overcharged by booking.com. The hotel was not worth the price we paid. The room was small. There is no business center at the hotel.

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.
