This small, old hotel was an excellent choice for 3 nights. The location was great for easy walking to Riverwalk and French Quarter areas. The price was great, even with the $35/nite parking rate which they all seemed to charge. The room was clean with adequate space and large bathroom, very comfortable mattress, and we especially enjoyed the air conditioning...

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed it very much. We had a room with a window and two beds. (4th floor) The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. My only suggestion is that the paint splatter on the bathroom floor needs to be scraped up. Check in was easy and the front desk staff was very...

This hotel is great. We went for our honeymoon and they went above and beyond to make our time here special. The rooms are very nice and the staff was amazing. Defiantly worth staying here. Everything is really close, lots of good restaurants:) We would stay here again.

This hotel is beautiful. It's prices are a little above average but worth it. Very clean, you feel like you're in a castle, and the lobby and elevators smell heavenly. It's in the central business district so it's location is great, close to the French Quarter and other stuff. My only complaints were that the wifi didn't always work and...

We stayed in room 310 for two nights in Mar 2017. The room offers a view on the "back street". Pros: Excellent location. Only two mins walk from Bourbon St and the Casino. Lots of restaurant nearby. Price was reasonable for the location. Keurig coffee machine in the lobby (free). The room is also equipped with a safe, fridge, hair...

I visited New Orleans for a conference and I stayed at The Pelham because the price was more affordable than that in the conference hotel. Not cheap, just cheaper. The hotel is in a very good location, close to the French Quarter and Woldenberg Park. The first surprise was to see a room with no windows. That's when I realized...

Mardi Gras 2017! Was fortunate to pick this hotel for our 3 night stay in New Orleans. First time to the city and the hotel was exactly the place we needed. Great location, within walking distance to everything. Staff was great and the room was very clean. Only draw back would be that there was no coffee in the rooms...

Wow! Could not have found a better hotel in New Orleans! Stayed here for 4 nights for Mardi Gras, not realizing there was some big NBA thing going on! Upon entering the hotel I was greeted by Troy, who was super friendly and very knowledgable about the area and local attractions. I checked in quickly and was pleasantly surprised with...

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.
