Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our recent stay at the Omni Riverfront Hotel was great. We received a great rate and was able to easily extend so that we could enjoy an extra night in the city. We will Definitely stay again. Staff is exceptional. Food was great. Anytime I'm in New Orleans I'll be checking availability here.

The best hotel I have stayed at in all my travels. Our room was a premier room. It was tastefully decorated, roomy with a nice view and extremely comfortable king size bed. The staff are exemplary. Ren, our concierge, was absolutely fantastic. He organised some great tours for us, was always available with advice and assistance, and provided great guidance...

Terribly overpriced and incredibly underwhelming. Don't waste your time. The only good thing: not a far walk from major attractions. Hope you like sliding doors for your bathroom and horribly overpriced valet and breakfast.

This recently renovated hotel has a key advantage over other major chains close by: it has a more upscale look and elegant feel, but at a very competitive price. If you are attending a convention, or going to the WWII museum as we were, the location is ideal. Valet parking is a reasonable $40 per day with unlimited in and...

Staff was super friendly, helpful and efficient. Great looking hotel rooms, clean and roomy. Nice cafe and bar. Great location, great value. Have stayed in many New Orleans hotels and rarely write reviews, but this stay definitely warranted one. Will surely book again.

We made reservations months ahead of time but when we got there they did not have a room for us. My husband is handicap and we needed a handicap room they ended up putting us in a room that my husband could not get in the bathroom and he had to use the bathroom down in the lobby.

Business trip. Not the best stay I've ever had. Try to scam you. Good location. Comfy bed. Blackout shades. Nice bathrooms. No microwaves without paying $25. Expensive valet parking. Bar and food wasn't bad

The Omni hotel is beautiful, comfortable, and conveniently located to many attractions and street car/bus stops. The food in the restaurant was delicious. The staff in every department we encountered was friendly and helpful.

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Staff were extremely courteous and willing to answer any questions we had about the French Quarter and surrounding areas. They were eager and fast acting with any requests. They genuinely seemed to appreciate our patronage.

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.
