Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Rooms exceeded our expectations at a great price. Bonus - walking distance to French Quarter and museums! The only drawback was having to sign up for the hotel wifi every day.

Room was comfortable and clean. Extremely friendly and welcoming staff. Front desk and concierge very helpful with all hotel and local touring needs. Dense pillow top on mattress comfortable for all 4 sleepers in our family. Fresh apples nightly, a break from the southern cuisine all day. Did not dine in hotel restaurant.

My wife & I spent 3 days in New Orleans recently and decided to make the Omni Riverfront our hotel based on the high reviews, convenient location and affordable prices. After staying there I can honestly tell you we were pleased with this decision. The hotel itself is not overly fancy or lavish but it's nice enough and more importantly...

We checked other New Orleans Tripadvisor hotel reviews prior to making our selection for the Omni Riverfront Hotel. Their rate worked for us (all hotel rates are high in city centers) so we booked two rooms. It turned out to be a perfect fit for us. Located in the Convention Center area we were in walking distance to restaurants, shopping,...

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Staff member Dwight went beyond our expectations with suggestions on activities and places to see and things to do. Food is plentiful, local and tasty. I can't wait to return.

I would not recommend this hotel to my friends or family. It is to pricey and the overall area is to congested. The rooms were to small and the bathroom did not offer a lot of privacy,because of a sliding door. We were there because of WSA Cheer competitions.

Reviewed 22 March 2016

The hotel is ideally located; the fitness room is functional, although the TV did not work. The desk for business was meager at best. Room service is friendly, timely and accurate. The room itself was exceptionally quiet, which helped with a good night's rest, although the bed sloped toward the side.

Very close to convention center and river walk shopping. Fine upscale hotel with a great caring staff. Due to its location and fine rooms, not value priced! But, the great service, upscale rooms and location is worth the cost.

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.
