Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located next to the second oldest park in New Orleans, Lafayette Square, the Blake Hotel is part of the Central Business District which makes it. It's a good choice for business travel but also a good fit for leisure guests. Since it's a quick 10-minute walk to the French Quarter, you're just enough removed from the late-night revelry crowd that prowls the Quarter. From here, guests can hop on the streetcar at St. Charles Avenue to reach the Garden District, Audubon Park’s zoo and Tulane University.

Newly renovated guest rooms feature fresh linens, plush bedding, free Wi-Fi, desks and reading chairs, flat-panel TVs, coffeemakers, minifridges and microwaves. Upper floors look out at the city, and many double queen rooms have corner views while the hotel's suites feature separate living and sleeping spaces with room for four guests. 

Downstairs, on-site restaurant Café at the Square opens out onto the the street and serves authentic Louisiana fare for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Visitors can also work out in the on-site fitness center with views overlooking St. Charles Avenue or relax on the raised terrace. There's also a small business center and mini-market for grabbing snacks on the go.

12/11 and 12/12 we had no hot water. Ivy, the hotel's online assistant moved us to another room on 12/13 and gave us a voucher for lunch in the hotel's restaurant. The thermostat in the new room was set at 69 degrees which kept the room very cold and we were unable to change it, therefore the room was extremely cold. The receptionist Kaitlin was very helpful and friendly.

The front office staff was exception, especially a young lady by the name of Breenan (probably misspelled) who helped us with setting up Uber which we had never done before. Could not have done it without her!!!

The hotel is in walking distance to French quarter and right on the trolley line making it very convenient location in a neighborhood that we felt safe walking in. Mini fridge and microwave were convenient for bringing home big portions from restaurants.

-the room was clean -microwave and refrigerator -staff were always courteous in the elevator -the deal that we received on price, would recommend or go back if we could get as good of a deal
Other Comments
-We were supposed to get one drink per person for our stay included in our deal and it was never mentioned and we forgot about it. -We asked for 2 water bottles to be brought up to our room, waited 20 minutes, still hadn't come yet, called again, said they would check on it. Still never came, had to go down stairs to get them ourselves and pay for them. -our room didn't have a shower curtain liner, so water got everywhere, when we told them about it, they said they would look into it, when we got back to the hotel later that night, still no shower curtain liner. We confirmed that we were missing one because our friends room had one. -only one elevator that was shared with staff so wait time was high
