I love the rooms with the high ceilings. It is like staying in an antebellum home, but with a more convenient location. The front desk people were friendly and helpful. Probably the best thing (other than the ceilings) was the car parking area at the end of Canal Street that was only $15 a day rather than the $30 for...

I decided to book on bookings.com and perhaps that was my mistake. There was no option to choose a room with a window while booking so bookings.com instructed me to send a message to the hotel thru bookings.com's web-site. There's really not a whole lot of incentive for Pelham to book another room for you once you've already paid but...

Second time staying in the hotel and the experience was exceptional. Love the ambience, clean rooms, and friendly staff. I love that it's in walking distance of everything and I always feel safe in my surroundings!

This is a great hotel for a NOLA trip, I'm sure we'll book it again next time, location is perfect, just one street from Canal. Walking distance to Bourbon, Royal, French Quarter but much more quiet! The rooms are beautifully decorated. We didn't like that the Windows didn't open. The bathroom vent ran on its own schedule and because of...

The Pelham hotel is conveniently located 20-30 mins from the airport (tip: return shuttle costs $36) and 5 minute walk from the French Quarter. The hotel is not a new one so I was not expecting luxuries. Staff were really friendly and welcoming and GENUINELY nice. It was nice to be called 'a doll', sip coffee in the reception and...

Liked the fact the premise's 20-30 mins away from Louis Armstrong New Orleans Intl' Airport by car. It's also located a few blocks away from both Bourbon and French Quarter---car wasn't needed as everything could be reached 20 minutes maximum, by walking. I didn't like the layout of the room I was first assigned. Immediately front desk put me into...

From the past reviews everyone said that the hotel staff was very friendly and I did not find that. Upon checking in we were given a room where the TV was not working and the refrigerator was leaking. Called down to the clerk and Troy said that the cable company was switching to digital and some of the TV's were...

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.
