Pros: Central location
Cons: Hot water- takes a LONG time for water to get hot for showers and in the sink.
Location: Location is fabulous- short walk to so many fun places, restaurants, and more.
Traveling on business, this hotel was perfectly located for a stroll down to the French Quarter and a short walk to the Convention Center. The street car does clatter down St. Charles regularly, but I think that's just a charming part of staying in the city.

GREAT ENVIRONMENT, EXPENSIVE PARKING

Posted 15-Jan-2017
Pros: the room
Cons: better options for parking
Location: 20 minute walk from The French Quarter, 10 minute walk from parking garage
The Blake Hotel had a very inviting environment. The room was comfortable with a homey feel, the bathroom was spacious and clean, very convenient mini fridge and microwave. When we arrived we were informed valet parking was around $40 including tax per night. They gave us the option to park in a parking garage nearby (about a 10 minute walk) that they partnered with, which we paid $16/night. Although the parking garage was a cheaper option it was a hassle to park since you had to drive up two-way, steep and narrow ramps with barely anywhere to park with extremely small parking spaces, but it was cheaper.

Best hotel I've stayed in for a while

Posted 14-Jan-2017
Pros: Cleanliness and comfort.
Cons: More towels in the bathroom.
Location: Great location in the business district. Easy in and out, but also safe. Walking distance to many coffee shops, and restaurants.
From check in to check out the hotel made our stay great. It's a safe location, clean and the downstairs Café is excellent. Our room which was a deluxe double queen room had a great view from the 10th floor. One of the main downfalls I've found staying in a city is the noise inside and out. Our room was silent. Really don't have anything negative to say about our stay.

Close to destination at an affordable price

Posted 14-Jan-2017
I was very skeptical about the price for the location, but overall I was pleased with my experience and would definitely stay there again. Just know the floor you are on is determined by the type of bathroom you want i.e. tub or shower.

Nice hotel, good location

Posted 12-Jan-2017
Pros: Convenient
Cons: N/A
Hotel is easily accessed and is very convenient if attending events at the Superdome or Smoothie King Center. French Quarter is also near by. This is an older hotel but is was very clean. Parking is expensive, but it is everywhere downtown. Have stayed here numerous times and can recommend.
