Within walking distance to the convention center. Very nice & clean hotel. Decor was neat too. The room actually had stairs separating the living space and the bedroom & bathroom. This made it nice to have some privacy since I was traveling with a colleague and sharing a room.

Such a beautiful hotel and friendly staff. They were all very welcoming and accommodating and immediately made me feel at home. For a business trip I couldn't have had a nicer hotel and I can't wait to come back again soon.

This hotel is conveniently located and the staff is wonderful. They made us feel like we were the only guest they needed to serve that day. Great place for a conference. It was very easy to access street cars or reach the French Quarters walking. They were very eager to please us with any requests and always had great answers...

the location of the Hotel and the quality service will make me and my come back to this nice Hotel for the next meetings. This happens to the next year with the American Academy of Ophthalmology. While busy in the meeting my wife could walk to the city center and the river walk outlet in a safe neighborhood.

There are many good things about this hotel, but the bad things overwhelm the good. First, the bad: We had a suite on two levels, the second level up two flights of stairs. It sounded nice in the description, but the design has problems. First, the AC is on the first floor, with nothing provided upstairs. Heat rises, of course,...

The hotel is in a good location. It was quiet at night. The staff was very friendly and accommodating . We had a premier corner King Room and were very satisfied.

Its too bad this is not your typical Omni Hotel. Its old and really not worth the money. Broken shower head called in two days and never fixed. Called Valet to bring the car and waited over 45 minutes and I was the ONLY person waiting for their car.

Had a great time being located near to the river and the French Quarter. The hotel is the usual nice Omni but there were kids running through the halls and problems with their wifi. On the positive side, the rooms are nice and the bed was very comfortable.

This hotel chain is very nice. I enjoyed our stay at this location. Unfortunately, the sliding barn doors on the hotel bathrooms did NOT allow privacy when traveling with co-workers with whom you are not extremely close!

I was in town for business and most of my colleagues stayed at the Hilton across the way. I have had better experience at Omni vs. Hilton in the past and figured I would stay here instead.

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.
