I didn't use the restaurant because, well, it's New Orleans and there are so many great restaurants. But the staff were very helpful, the rooms clean...

Restaurant was very minimal in menu options, housekeeping was always late (4:00 PM or later each day), bar in open and airy, a nice place to people watch. Staff was helpful in suggesting places to go outside of the hotel.

Good accomodations, but inflexible for business travel. Omni does not seem to be business travel friendly. I booked 2 rooms at this hotel due to a conference taking place here. The day prior to checking in I was informed my conference would end earlier so I could shorten my stay. I tried to change my reservation online and was unsuccessful...

Our room was reasonable but nothing special. Our window looked out onto a side street parking lot and a high tension power line was just 20' away. Limited breakfast options. No pool. Convenient for the conference center and outlet stores but that's about it.

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.
