Overview

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 a good choice for business travel but also a good fit for leisure guests looking for a somewhat quieter stay than in the lively French Quarter.

Recently 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, the Café at the Square opens out onto 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. 

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.

Locatiin. I have stayed at many Best Western properties. This one was the most poorly managed.
Other Comments
I paid extra for a room with two queen beds. When I arrived, they told me that there had been damage to some rooms. They wanted to put me in a lousy room with one queen. I refused. They gave me a much better room with a king and a rollaway. I stayed in that room. One day my room key would not work. The front desk blamed me for erasing the key card. They gave me a new one. It still did nt work. It turned out that key mechanism needed a new battery. They had all day to fix the problem. Whe returned late to my room the door was still broken and I had to wait atrpund for maintenance to take the door apart.

Service was often indifferent. Air conditioning was very loud, kicking on and off through the night, which wasn't conducive to restful sleep. Excellent downtown location. Nice job of revamping an '70s-era building.

Our group had 3 rooms. One was disappointing, stunk of smoke & lighting was not working. Managers response to problems was rude & unprofessional. Staff did go fix lights & spray with room deodorizer.

The toliet paper holder is in an awkward location and there needs to be a body length mirror in the room (not the bathroom).
