Reviewed 18 January 2016

We stayed at the Omni during a cheer convention this month. I was looking forward to a great hotel as the brand represents but I feel as though this property fell short. Upon arriving the valet staff was fantastic. They immediately greeted us, unloaded our car and took over getting us inside as quickly as possible. Check in was easy...

Service was great. Rooms were nice size and comfortable. Queen beds seem small. Go for a king if you can. Walking distance to lot of great places and hop on trolley to get to any of the other districts. Make sure and go to the garden district. A lot of fantastic houses and shops. Lafayette cemetery also

Loved the hotel but not the location. Room was comfortable, clean and well kept. However, the hotel is across from the Convention Center. If you are coming to the area for an event at the Convention Center, it is perfect. But it is too far from the French Quarter and there are not enough people around at night to feel...

Thank you for the feedback. I am happy to read that you enjoyed most aspects of the property. There are certainly some very easy transportation options to the French Quarter. One in particular that seems to be favored by our guests is that of the streetcar. It is not only convenient but a nice experience as it rides up the...

Nice staff. Lobby clean. Walk outside and the convention center is to the right a block. But, Its quiet a walk to French Quarter. Couple blocks from Harrah's casino. Parking was 26 dollars a day. It was pretty basic, bed was comfy. Next visit. We are going to get closer to the French Quarter

All of the staff was super nice and a very close walk to the convention center. Even got room service a couple times and the food was delicious - great burger and fantastic bread pudding! Would definitely stay here again!

Nothing super exciting to write about. Its what a hotel should be, a clean room, comfy bed. Not far from the riverwalk. Trolleys run by so we were able to hop on to get to other locations. Staff at the check out were very nice.

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.
