New Orleans, United States
Reviewed 8 January 2016

I stayed at the Omni with a group of 8 females students who were doing a service project in the city. The loft rooms are perfect for families with young to teen aged children. It offers lots of space and is really clean and quiet. All of the young women were comfortable and so was I.

I am so happy to read that you enjoyed your visit. The loft rooms are certainly nice! Not only are they spacious but they also provide an authentic New Orleans experience. The high ceilings, exposed brick and other aspects of the room truly represent the warehouse district well. Please come back and visit.

Stayed here for one night prior to a cruise. Very nice, very clean and staff was very friendly! Room was very nice size and the bed was super comfortable! Had breakfast in the hotel and it was wonderful! Great location - walking distance to French Quarter and all the fun. Riverwalk was just across the street as was the Port!...

The Omni Riverfront has the best combination of location, accomodations and staff that I have experienced in New Orleans. Excellent location for eating and museums in the CBD/Warehouse district as well as access to French Quarter and river. Will definitely be my new go to place when I'm in town.

I enjoyed my stay at the Omni Riverfront Hotel. The staff provided the most friendly service and the breakfast was outstanding. The location is a short walk from everything but away from the uproar of the quarters to get a good nights rest. The rooms are large and the beds sleep very well.

I took my Yorkies on this trip and the hotel staff was great with them. When one of my new rescues became a bit noisy, (while I was out) the staff brought the dogs to the from desk and took care of them until I returned. This seemed to be no problem for the staff, or the dogs, and the...

Located across the street from the convention center and riverfront this is a great location to stay in and see the entire city. We stayed here five days and it was all good. It is a 10-15 walk to the French Quarter which is what we wanted as we did not want to be too close to the crowds and...

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Years for the Sugar Bowl. There are many positives yo this hotel. It was very clean and housekeeping did a great job. Our room was quiet for the most part.

Reviewed 30 December 2015 via mobile

For such an expensive hotel we expected much more. Everyone was incredibly friendly but the room was small, there is no view and no restaurant (at least not open while we were out and about). It was clean and the bed comfortable but that's about it for $188 a night. I wouldn't stay there again since it's not really walking...

Rented two rooms for my family this past Sunday night. The property was "OK", but it seems like the designers must never have stayed in a hotel. 1) The bathroom doors slide closed, like a barn door. They don't completely close. Bottom line: there is NO privacy. Not good for people who are NOT family, who are sharing a room....

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.
