The location was convenient. The rooms were clean. The staff was nice. The floors creaked & there was a loose nail in the middle of the floor. There was also a stale smell to the room every time you entered the room.

Coolest place to stay. This hotel had so much character compared to any place else I have stayed. The artwork throughout is truly something to see and the gift shop has really unique items to buy. I would highly recommend checking this place out.

The hotel was unique and awesome. If you are looking for a different experience from the chain hotel then I would suggest Old No.77. The location was conveniently close to restaurants and the French Quarter.

It's filled with local artwork and goods for sale. Our favorite thing was the "Artomat" - an old cigarette machine that dispenses unique art for $5....

I spent two nights at the Old No. 77 Hotel in March 2017 for work. The vibe at the Old No. 77 is very similar to the Ace Hotel in New Orleans -- a vintage building brought back to life in a very artistic, boutiquey way. Unfortunately, these things don't seem to work out all that well once you get...

Front desk crew lacked just about everything you would want in a front end employee. From eye rolls to the customer in front of me to the lack of direction to my room. They could cost you a great valet by making the customer go out and get them to tag our bags. I don't tip as much when I'm...

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.
