Everything was in order, staff was friendly and accommodating. Just across from the Riverwalk, in convenient location to convention center. I have nothing negative to say about my stay at the Riverfront Omni in New Orleans!

Overall if I was arranging this independently and not through a package I would choose a different hotel. The price was high when compared to the overall service. The restaurant had no servers and I waited > 30 minutes to have anyone assist me. Several others just left. The service fees on the room services were exceptionally high.

Great hotel, wonderful staff, great price. Great location. Bathroom door blocks access to bathroom counter and light switch when the door is open. Remodeling happened recently and sink in bathroom needs to be cleaned/scrubbed after install. Bedroom was very large and met all needs. Slept wonderful.

Overall, my stay was wonderful. The location was perfect and all staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was fantastic-modern, clean, and comfortable. I ate in the restaurant (both buffet and menu) each morning for breakfast and it was delicious (especially the crab Benedict). The restaurant service was wonderful, however, the food took a bit longer than I would...

Checking in was an omen! The bellman needs better communication skills to make guest understand rules a little better. Shower pressure was low....clogged sink and tub drains....noisy hallway and my room was next door to ice machine with heavy traffic-interrupted sleep throughout the night,etc.

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.
