I had a medical emergency with a business colleague while staying at the Omni Riverfront in New Orleans. The staff at this hotel was unbelievable in how they handled our emergency and their concern during and after the situation. They reached out to the family and showed concern and compassion that is not common these days! Don't think twice about...

The hotel itself was fairly nice. The room was ok with two exceptions, the bathroom door was a sliding door on hinges that left each side a little exposed and that left little room for privacy. The other issue was the lighting in the room was very dim, especially when you are trying to get dressed for a formal affair....

Thank you for your feedback. As we continue to do some upgrades to our rooms the sliding doors are in consideration. Hopefully when your travels bring you back to the Big Easy these things will be taken care of. We look forward to welcome you back.

Stayed here for a convention. Great location, clean, and service was great. Would definitely stay here again. Bed was comfortable. Gym was nice. There is a restaurant in the hotel- service was good. Best thing about this one- its clean and location.

The hotel and the location were great. We had so much to chose from. The only thing I would have liked is not being able to get a luggage cart, it's there policy to have a Bell person do it. But that is great service, so a good thing unless your in a rush.

The Omni Riverfront is a wonderful place to stay in New Orleans. The hotel is convenient to the Riverwalk for shopping, near a streetcar stop and the staff really care about you. Ask Ren for help booking a plantation or swamp tour. He is awesome!

Great place to stay! Close to the casino, shopping and if you don't mind walking, the Quarter is just a few minutes walk. This will definitely be our new go to place when we come down to NOLA...which is a few times a year!!!

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.
