The hotel is situated just a few miles from many restaurants and the French Quarter, which makes it an excellent location. There is also ample street parking space available if you're patient. The rooms were clean and self sufficient with all necessary amenities. We stayed in an interior room which could get stuffy due to its small size and there...

Better than expected, great location, lovely staff, our room was great...it had ridiculously high ceilings and a bed I had to struggle to climb up onto (I am only 5' 4) but we absolutely loved it! We also loved the location as it was near to everything we wanted to see and do. We were boarding a cruise ship after...

Good location close to Canal street/river. Close to a decent breakfast place, "Ruby Slippers" around the corner. Paid 179 usd for a room w/2x queen beds. Calm area and no noise at night time. Bad ventilation and large windows that did not open. Bathroom has seen better days but all in all not the worst I have experienced. Funny smell...

I was there for two nights last December, although the place has a great location smell really weird specially our room and the people working there is not friendly at all. I normally don't loose my time writing negative opinions but these place was the worse point during a great roadtrip through Texas and Louisiana.

Was at a conference at the Sheraton and decided to stay here instead. Great decision and a lower rate too. The room had high ceilings with nice decor. The bathroom could use a little work, as the counter space was limited. And the Ruby Slipper cafe downstairs is a must, especially at breakfast.

This hotel is comfortable and the rooms have all you need - eg toiletries, hair dryer etc. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The hotel is in a former plantation house. There is no breakfast served here, but there are plenty of places very near to go for breakfast - eg Mothers just around the corner, as well as...

We moved to the Pelham for our last night in New Orleans. It provided a great location to walk to different sites. We were greater by friendly staff for our entire visit. As other reviewers have commented on, our room had a strong musty/moldy smell when we entered. It did get better with the fan on, but it would have...

Stayed here recently with my family and had a great stay. Close to everything, decent sized rooms (we had four people sharing and still could move around), helpful staff and had beautiful decor and vibe. Gives you a little taste of New Orleans before you leave your room.

We stayed here for a total of 6 nights at the end of October/Second week of November and were not disappointed. One night was prior to a 7 day cruise and 5 nights following.

Stayed here one night after a cruise. Had an interior room with 2 queens. Beds were comfy. Highly recommend the interior rooms for those that hate lights at night! Very quiet. Nice spacious bathroom. Kuering coffee in the lobby...far better than the tiny pots in the room which I never use. Parking is pricey, we were lucky and scored a...

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.
