    Noisy with trolley & A/C cutting on & off constantly. Location close to trolley. Next time will stay in French Quarter. Front desk was helpful & polite. Restaurant offers a great breakfast, wonderful crabcakes & scenic view of Lafayette Park.

    « Not worth a referral »

    We paid in advance months ahead or we would not have stayed here. Check in was good until we found out that valet parking was $44. Per day. Not option if you wanted your vehicle safe, since they had no parking. We go to our room and there is toilet paper in the toilet still, tub drain on side of tub, shower handle broken and the beds sounded like our RV beds. Place was noisy since trolley ran right beside the hotel. They texted me everyday and never responded to my texts about our dissatisfaction of the room. Then to beat all the maid stole a pack of cigarettes and not sure if there was anything else, but the cigarettes were left on desk! Will not stay there or anywhere else in New Orleans. It was nasty and toooo many beggars! This person cussed us out for not giving it a cigarette!

    « Great stay, awesome location »

    Hotel is only a short (less than 5 min) walk to the French Quarter. Immediately greeted by friendly staff at the front desk. Room was clean, beds were comfortable. We ate at the connecting restaurant for breakfast the first day, and lunch on the second day, their food is delicious! Not wanting to pay the hefty fee for valet parking with the hotel, we parked in a nearby self-parking lot a couple blocks away (not much cheaper for over night parking for two days, but we still saved money). I recommend reserving/prepaying for a parking spot online before coming to NOLA. We used ParkWhiz, it was pretty easy to use.

    « Great Price and location but Horrible Parking »

    Pros: Location: The hotel is located inches away from French Quarter. So if you plan to visit ACME oyster house or other amazing restaurant down the street, it's very convenient. Safety: The neighborhood is safe enough as I see patrol around the area a lot. Cons: Parking: The parking with a good price is very hard to find. Either pay 30+$ and park in the garage next to hotel overnight, or just find a good place to park then make your way to the hotel.

    Nice hotel. Good location. The room was small however but clean. There is a cafe located in the hotel if you want to eat. But it is a bit pricey. Overall good and I could go back. It's in walking distance of bourbon st. About 15 minutes walk which is not bad.

    Nice hotel close to everything we needed to see . Staff very friendly, room clean , resturant food very good , a change from all the US fast food . However I had to call the hotel on my return as my husband left his iPod in the room . The person I spoke to said she would check and return my call or email me . She hasn't , and I can't seem to email them so I m hoping someone will read this and get back to me ASAP . Or I will have to make another call .

    « Good but could be better »

    While in NOLA we stayed at this Best Western hotel. At first glance its clean, modern and appealing. While some commented that the rooms are small, I couldn't care less. The only thing about the room that bothered me was the dresser which the paint was peeling like mad. Good thing I didn't have a toddler traveling with me. The attached cafe is charming. My only other complaint was some of the staff was too engrossed in their smartphones that they didn't listen when you spoke to them and I can't stand repeating myself. Hopefully management will see this and retrain accordingly.

    « Our first visit to New Orleans »

    We recently visited New Orleans for the first time, along with some friends. Blake House was the hotel we chose to stay in for our first night. Upon the arrival of our friends, we stayed in two other hotels. I can confidently say-especially when comparing Blake House with other places we stayed-that we will recommend Blake House to others. The service was good and the accommodations were great!

    « Great Stay In Your Rooms In New Orleans »

    Blake is a central located well-appointed Hotel with very friendly personnel. Our room was very well-spaced and equipped. Noteworthy amenities: docking-station for different devices, multi-fitting cell-phone-charger. We didn't need that this time, but it might be helpful in case: iron + ironing board, electric kettle empty fridge. The king-size bed was really, really comfortable, we had a good night's sleep. Bathroom was perfect. Modest remark: we'd better not received a knock on the door at 9AM to be remembered that check-out would be11AM. But because we slept so well, that's forgiven :-) Thank you for a great stay at your Hotel.

    « Excellent from the check-in »

    « Good Location Needs Improvement »

    The location of the hotel was great and the price was amazing but the hotel needs some improvement in terms of comfort - the beds were horrible and we had a few bad encounters in the restauarant. I will say the housekeeping staff was incredibly nice & they kept the rooms super clean.

    « Nice hotel close to French Quarter »

    Other then a house keeper entering into our room at 10:30 PM and the one lock being broken it was a great hotel. Just won't stay there again because of the two problems indicated. It scared both of us ladies who were occupants of the room.

    « Not as good as I thought »

    The hotel is very outdated in some areas. Our bathtub drained very slow so when we took showers we had to stand in water up past my ankles. The bed was not sturdy. Felt like something may have needed to be tightened.

    This hotel was lovely. It was a short walk to the French Quarter, about 10 minutes. The room was very clean, and housekeeping did a great job keeping up with fresh towels. Everyone at the desk was polite and helpful. We stayed for 4 days, and got to experience the French Quarter, the Garden District, etc, without having to put up with the street noise in our hotel room.

    « Nice property, great location »

    Nice room, great bed, in a renovated hotel. Location was great. I was going to the convention center each day, using the shared bluebikes in NOLA. There is a hub right around the corner. With the bike, a five minute ride to the convention center. Also, the cafe on site serves great food. Best grits ever!

    « Spring break »

    The room is very small. The bathroom does not have a exhaust vent which turned it into a sauna while trying to get ready. The staff could not have been nicer. We stayed for 4 nights. I received 2 text messages from supervisors of the front desk asking how our stay was going and was there anything we needed which I thought was very nice. We had one problem with the AC I spoke to the front desk and it was fixed right away.

    « Five-star service for a reasonable price! »

    This was our first stay at the Blake, and we weren't disappointed. We like this part of town; it's on the border of the CBD and Warehouse/Arts District and within easy walking distance to the French Quarter, Fauborg Marigny and Garden District. Wonderful location on the corner of Poydras and St. Charles! Service was outstanding; we paid less than we EVER had at ANY hotel in NOLA, yet were treated with five-star service. They don't offer complimentary breakfast, but Rouse's Grocery is nearby, as are numerous restaurants and coffee shops. To our delight, the hotel restaurant (Cafe on the Square) was excellent and fairly priced. A winner! The room was comfortable enough but quite small. It included a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave which were great; however the layout was awkward. Not sure how it could have been arranged better, but we considered moving it as we were there a week. If someone was sitting at the table/desk, no one could get into the bathroom. It was a small issue considering the magnificent value we felt we got on this room.

    « Nice place for convention »

    Stayed in Feb. About 15 min walk to convention center, 15 min walk to Smoothie King Center, 10 min walk to French Quarter. Nice enough rooms. Price was right. Clean. Friendly staff. Would stay here again.

    « Very good hotel »

    The Blake Hotel New Orleans is a very good hotel. It's clean and professional and well situated. It's right on the St. Charles Avenue Street car line so you can get around easily and we went to see great live music at the Lafayette Park next door.

    « Just pay what you pay and stay at your regular hotel »

    I was looking for something out of the ordinary and I followed the instructions of the hotel on booking ... I am very easy going person and I am always looking for a new experience... so let me tell you the good things at least ... this hotel is well located and an easy walk to everything we wanted to visit ... we did drive to the plantations but that was our choice. The room was clean and we were quickly sent extra bedding when we asked. Check in was quick and easy. Now ... they are charging $44.07 a night for valet parking and from other reviews I understand it's off site which explains the 30 min wait for your car ... even when you call before you come down ... Also 1 time we got our car it smelled like pot so bad I was a little afraid he was actually smoking in it. My daughter convinced me it was just the guy driving that smelled that way. When I didn't get the discount I was promised by following directions of the person who answered the phone I was told he is new and that was repeated when I asked for a manager. The answer for the Blake is not to make it right or to even apologize that it's mis-leading it's simply to make an excuse but do nothing about it. I should have just stayed at the Omni and gotten points and even the parking wound have been cheaper ... and one block closer. Things to keep in mind.

    « Avoid if possible »

    « Close to everything, and very comfortable »

    I came to the Blake to walk the Rock n Roll New Orleans Marathon. The hotel is very comfortable, right next to the start line, less than a mile from the expo at the convention center, and less than a mile from the French Quarter. Outstanding value!

    « RnR New Orleans »

    Perfect location for the RnR New Orleans race series. The staff, for the most part, was very courteous and responsive. We had an issue with the housekeeping staff, and I'm hopeful that my last communication with the hotel will receive a response. Overall, this hotel offered a great location to get some of that French Quarter feel with just a short walk, but with a much more palatable price.

    The Blake is a beautiful hotel in an excellent location! The staff, especially the front desk ladies, were pleasant and efficient. The restaurant in the hotel has great food for breakfast, or a light meal later in the day. If you want to tour the city, hop on a trolley! The St. Charles line can be caught on the corner close to the hotel. Awesome time in NOLA!

    « A nice hotel in a great location. »

    We stayed at the Blake for Mardi Gras. It was a great location for the parades, although a bit of a trip to the French Quarter. Not fancy, small, clean, spacious rooms, with a great little restaurant and bar, and a helpful and friendly staff. We were so happy with our choice. Would love to keep it our little secret for next year's Mardi Gras.

    « Staff is friendly and rooms are good enough »

    We went for Mardi Gras and although the place was a madhouse, the staff couldn't have been nicer. It's an old hotel so don't expect sparkly shiny bathrooms - but they are clean. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and I'd recommend it.

    « Great location, in need of maintenance »

    The hotel is in a great spot for Mardi Gras parades as they pass right in front of the hotel. The lobby and common areas are clean and well maintained however the cleanliness of the room was another matter. I am not fussy, but I want clean sheets and bathroom when I arrive. The bathroom was recently used and the toilet was not even flushed. The sheets were clearly not changed prior to our arrival. The front desk did send someone right away to remedy the situation. All other aspects of our stay were very pleasant.

    « Nice hotel »

    It is a nice clean place to stay. Our first issue was that we were not informed that there was no parking and our only option was a $44 vallet parking. I figured we would have to pay for parking since it is limited in New Orleans but dang.... One of the elevators was not working when we left for Bourbon St. and hours later we returned to neither of the elevators working. Thank goodness we were only on the 4th floor but having to take the stairs at midnight was not fun.

    « Mardi Gras getaway »

    I booked this overnight trip as a last minute trip during Mardi Gras because of the hotel location. Check in was fine. They did upgrade us to double beds and I only booked a single. However, the room was at the end of a hall next to the ice machine. The room had no window so we couldn't enjoy the sights. The toilet kept running so we had to turn off the water. We slept great after that. Its a perfect location for Mardi Gras but probably won't come back unless I get a guaranteed window.

    « Mardi Gras »

    We spend the Friday through Monday before Mardi Gras every year at the Blake. I always say they couldn't possibly do anything to improve our wonderful experience. Every single year they exceed our expectations. Every staff member is extremely polite and go way beyond to make sure we have everything we need. If you want to see parades, this is the place! Food, drinks and balcony. So worth the money!

    The area was convenient but away from the noise of the French Quarter. It is right on a main parade route though for Mardi Gras so that can cause some noise and traffic problems at that time of year. Otherwise, it is in a great spot.

    This hotel is more european than average US hotels. The rooms are smaller but adequate. If you're a plus size person you may want to look elsewhere. Parking is valet at $42.00. You can find parking on your own within 6 blocks for $20 a night. The onsite cafe has excellent breakfasts. If you're a light sleeper avoid street side rooms as the trolley runs by these rooms. Walking distance to the World War Two Museum.

    « GPS has to guess »

    As with most downtown NOLA locations, parking and directions are a challenge, but the hotel is actually located on St Charles, not Poydros. Valet parking is expensive and your automobile is stored 6 blocks from hotel. The rooms and amenities were suitable, excluding the beds. They were "shaky" and uncomfortable. The location is very convenient for walking to nearby major sites and restaurants. I booked my room using hotelplanner then two days later booked my daughter's room directly through the hotel. Her room was much larger and nicer, and her rate was a few dollars less. So be weary of third party reservations, be prepared to turn on St Charles, and know that your vehicle will be parked a great distance from hotel if you choose to valet.

    « Convenient Location »

    This updated hotel was a great value. The location was conveniently located to walk to the The Convention Center, Harrah's, the French Quarter, and the National Museum of WWII. Room was as nice and comfortable as much higher priced hotels. I am picky about my AC and loved that I could have the fan on constantly when I slept. Had one breakfast at the attached Cafe and it was very good.

    The Blake Hotel was very nice to stay at. The room, lobby, and building were in great shape. The elevator was a bit shaky for my taste but never malfunctioned.

    « Horrible »

    I chose this hotel for its location. I will never stay here again. The room itself was adequate in size, it was very ?tired?, though with walls that had been patched and not painted. I stayed here for 4 nights. After my first night I went out sightseeing for the day. When I returned, I realized that the bed in my room had been made, but no other cleaning had taken place and the coffee tray had not been replenished. I went to the front desk to get some coffee and mentioned this to the staff. They were great, said they would make a note to housekeeping. That night when I returned, same thing. I mentioned it again. It was only on my last night there that my concerns were addressed in a way that I felt heard. There are several other things I found inadequate about the room, too many to spell out.

    This was a great hotel! The hotel was very clean and the service was amazing! It was close to everything. We never had to drive or Uber anywhere. Close to French Quarter and all entertainment. Starbucks is right across the street also, so that was an added bonus!

    « Great price and that's about it »

    Front desk was disorganized and did not deliver on multiple simple requests (notification for room readiness, leaving a key for another guest, confirming room type, etc). Also the room temperature never got above 65 degrees despite trying heat, air conditioning, and turning it off.

    « New Year`s nightmare »

    It would appear that to the front desk staff, New Years eve came as a surprise. The hotel was totally unprepared for the many guests waiting for a room. Even by 4:00 there were no rooms available that were ready. We were a party of seven, with pre-paid reservations for 3 rooms for 3 nights. We did arrive early (10:00 a.m.) and were prepared to wait for our rooms until the guaranteed check-in time of 4:00. However, it was 6:30 before everyone had a room. The front desk staff were unresponsive, and in one case, rude, Because of unusually cold weather, the lobby was freezing, but we were given no option but to sit there and wait. No one could offer any estimate of when a room might be clean and ready.

    « The Blake Hotel.... »

    I decided to stay at the Blake Hotel because it was one of the cheapest hotels to stay in to bring in the New Year and go to the Sugar Bowl. It was near everything I needed/wanted to go to such as the stadium and Bourbon Street. When arriving at the hotel, this is when the issues started. My friends and I arrived at the hotel around 3:20 pm because we were scheduled to check-in at 4 pm but since we were early the room was not ready. That was understandable but they failed to mention that everyone in the lobby that were supposed to check-in at 4 pm or earlier rooms were not ready either. It was now 4:15 pm and they did not call us to tell us that our room was ready so my friend and I decided to see what the problem was. Turns out the rooms that everyone in the lobby were supposed to stay in were not clean yet and they were in the process of doing it so our check-in time got pushed back to later that night (didn't have a set time). So they decided to put our name on the list, which they should have done when we came in earlier to ask about our room. Since the manager noticed it was a problem she was nice enough to give us a discount because of the inconvenience. Our room was ready around 6:30 pm but just when I thought that was the end of our problems, others started to appear when we got to the room. The pillows were not properly placed on one of the beds, they were just thrown on the bed. No shower towels to properly dry off with only small and medium towels. We expected the room to be a tad bigger than what it was but it was barely any space for four people to move around or put all of our bags in there. Even though we had the do not disturb sign up until 2 pm, someone is still required to come clean the room and give us more towels. The room never got clean and we had to ask for more towels. Overall the room and service were poor and I believe it could have been handled better than it was since that was not the first time the Sugar Bowl was played in New Orleans. They should have been better prepared because of past experiences with a New Year's and Sugar Bowl crowd. The only good thing about our stay was how the manager handled the problem.

    « Old and Dated. »

    The good. Location is four blocks from the French Quarter. If you are looking to be close but not in middle of the madness, then it is a good area. The bad. The hotel should not be in any list that states it is Premier. We booked late for the New Year's celebration and this hotel had double beds. The room was large but that was it. The decor is vintage 90's . The bathroom is old and the heater did not work. The last night I had the heater on and the room temperature fell to 59 degrees. Also we had to depart on the first so I had asked if I valet was open early morning. I was told it was open 24/7. I called 30 minutes ahead and was told the car was on its way. Thirty minutes later no car; finally was told that the valet was third party and that the gate was broken. Nearly an hour to get the car. Had to race to the airport to make the flight. Again should not be listed as Premier. It is an expensive mediocre property. Sorry but wanted to make sure people new.

    I love old hotels. I especially love them if they are in an old city. The Blake is a real treat. Our room had a great view with a wrap around window. We could here the street cars and saw a funeral (only in New Orleans) parade one evening. The staff was wonderful, and housekeeping was attentive. We will definitely be staying there again if we return. It is withing walking distance of everything we wanted to see and the St Charles street car stops right in front of the hotel. The restaurant was fairly priced and the food was really good. We ate there several meals . The real downside is there is nowhere to park. Even loading and unloading is a hassle. I will say that the valet did a great job of retrieving our car the 1 time we used it. If you are looking for an historic trip, stay at the Blake. You will be glad you did

    « Temperature Issues »

    1. Not having control of the room temperature was a huge disadvantage. On night 1, I called front desk at approximately 5:00 AM to report that my room was extremely cold, and requesting someone to look at my thermostat. I was told that only maintenance could address the issue, and there would be no one available to come take a look until 6 or 7 AM. At this point, I requested extra blankets, and front desk told me that they were understaffed and would not be able to send someone up to my room. 2. At approximately 6:30 AM no one had come to my room yet to address the temperature issue. I called to request a working iron because the iron in my room was not working. I left the room to go to my conference at around 7:30 and an iron had not been delivered yet. 3. At approximately 12:30 PM I came back to my room and the temperature was now uncomfortably hot. I called front desk 3 times before I got an answer. At that point, they sent up a maintenance man to address the issue. The maintenance man seemed irritated at my request and rudely asked what temperature I wanted in my room. 4. I responded to a text message sent by hotel staff reporting my issues. It took approximately 1.5 hours to get a response, at which point I had left the room to go back to my conference. 5. I came back to my room at approximately 10 PM and my room was now cold. I was unable to sleep, but I did not report the issues because hotel staff consistently failed to address my concerns. With the exception of the maintenance man, staff was cordial and pleasant, but failed to follow through in a timely manner. On the contrary, the maintenance man was rude to me on 2 occasions. Once in the hallway, when I made an initial request for him to fix the temperature, and he denied, and another time in my room when I requested blankets from him. He rudely told me to request them from front desk. I understand it may not have been something that he could address, but he could have handled the situation much better. 6. I received a text message saying management wanted to meet with me to address the issue, but there was no follow through on behalf of management. I was in town for a work conference and was unable to sleep both nights due to the room temperature. This had a severe impact on my work productivity. I think that the main issue was the room temperature, and that should have been disclosed on the website. I think all the other issues with staff and follow through (with the exception of the iron), could have been prevented.

    I chose the Blake because it was near the WWII museum and other sites of interest. The staff were friendly at check-in and during my stay. I had to request the heat be turned on and it was taken care of promptly. There is no included breakfast as in many of this chain but it's still a good value and there is a restaurant on the first floor. The internet was fine and is included. My room included a working microwave and fridge. I would stay again if visiting NOLA.

    Location was on point. Customer service was excellent . The bed was terrible it was very hard. Definitely need to upgrade your mattresses. The bathroom was very small. Air conditioning unit had to call maintenance for it to be hot had to call them for it to get cold. As a best western member I was surprised that they had no complimentary breakfast. A voucher for your members would be appreciated for breakfast in the nice little cafe down stairs. I was very baffled as well. How can your lobby entrance look better than your room presentation . you need to upgrade your rooms especially the beds people pay to sleep good not hard.

    « Great Location, but comfort of room temperature poor »

    Located in a great spot and walking distance from sites, this hotel has a serious issue with the heating and cooling system. As one of multiple room guests, both of us had issues with too hot and too cold temperatures. System apparently is set on one or the other and there is no want to modify with out air technicians during working hours. 59 degrees was a little too cold for sleeping for the price I paid for the room....I might have been just as warm outside, sadly. This is the only big issue with this hotel from my recent stay

    « Worst 2 nights »

    So many issues. It was 80 degrees when I walked into the room. Air wasn't on. About setting it 65 degrees, it still didn't cool room. Maintenance had to fix it. The staff I encountered weren't very personable. One girl that worked the overnight shift at the front desk seemed a little lost and confused. I to repeat everything over and over for her to understand. I had to rooms. My rooms were on different floors than each other. The bed in my room was hard. Windows were disgusting. What was the icing on the cake, was when the day of my departure, I had the Do Not Disturb sign on my door. A little after 8am maintenance decided to knock on my door, announce himself, then proceed to enter my room. It woke me up and it's uncalled for. At checkout, front desk didn't even bother asking how my stay was. I will not be back to this hotel nor recommend it to anyone.

    Stayed early November 2017. The carpet was so old that it was shredding. It was cold but when I turned on heat, terrible old, fungal smell infused the room so I slept without heat. I had unwelcome neighbors in the form of cockroaches in the bathroom. I called reception who called housekeeping for this issue but I saw cockroaches again another night even after housekeeping did something to get rid of the bugs. Clearly there's problem of hygiene in the hotel. This hotel was close to the trolley and French quarter without being in it, so the quiet of the area was a plus.

    « Not bad but expected more »

    The hotel is okay and in a good area. Steps away from French Quarter and other great areas. The hotel can use a little fixing up but the staff was nice. We picked this hotel from Expedia. We actually stayed here twice for our trip. We checked in on a Wednesday and left Thursday and came back on Friday. On Wednesday we arrived and our room was dark so we tried the lamp and it did not work. Someone arrived and replaced the bulb. We arrived again on Friday and what do you know, same issue different room. This time the entire lamp needed to be replace. We did speak to a general manager on duty who happen to be at the front desk on Wednesday for the first light issue when we called to have it replaced. She apologize gave us her card and told us she would be there all weekend to call if we needed anything else. It was a minor issue but still an issue so we expected for the price we paid to stay there, $300.00 per night, that she would have at least offered us a Comp dinner in the hotel restaurant or something but nothing. No one likes to check into a hotel and instantly have to call the front desk for an issue no matter how minor. An apology does go a long way and we did appreciate that but when people are paying so much money it is always nice to feel like we are being compensated for our time if there is an issue. If it was just the one night I would have been okay but it happened again. Also this would have likely not been an issue at all but the rooms are so dark because they have no ceiling lights only two lamps to light the entire rooms. Overall I would stay here again as the hotel has potential. It would likely be for a girls trip and not somewhere to stay with your family.

Saturday morning there was a 5K run down the street and a live band started playing before 6:00AM! Therefore you could not sleep. When we got up Sunday morning I went to make coffee in the room coffee maker, no coffee. Clean up forgot to replenish the coffee, so I had to go downstairs and pick it up. Then it was 64 degrees in our room. We turned on the heat and got nothing but cold air. It continued to get colder in our room.

    « Comfortable smaller hotel in good location »

    The Blake is located just a few blocks walk from Decatur Street, directly on the street car line. Friendly, helpful staff, well kept property. The room was small, but comfortable. Maid service, etc. was entirely unobtrusive. They have front/rear elevator doors, so all service spaces are separate from guest spaces but very discreet and convenient. There's a cafe on property, but of course it would be kinda silly to eat in the hotel unless for convenience, since the property straddles the French Quarter and the Warehouse District, so it is just a few blocks away from many award-winning restaurants and world-famous cafes. Overall, I had a really pleasant experience. (Remember: parking in New Orleans is really expensive, and this hotel is no exception-- $43 a day for safe, secure valet parking-- but. as IO mentioned, the property is directly on the St. Charles streetcar, and public transportation in the city is a breeze, so you don't really need to drive if you don't want.)

    « Stay at the Blake/St. Charles »

    Nice Lobby, Restaurant, and Guest Rooms. Much money was spent in this renovation. Labor, however, in restoring the guest rooms and adjoining areas was sub par. It is a shame to see so much money spent,and sub standard labor tolerated in the renovation. Had it been monitored properly, it would be a terrific venue. The exterior glass in the guest rooms allowed potential for great views. However, the tinting on the windows was in poor condition and ruined the ability to enjoy the views. The electrical outlets in all of the lamps in my room would not allow a plugged item to make good contact. This restricted the locations for computer, etc. The staff was veriy good.

You must walk down the street and eat at Mothers! The hotel has a small café but we did not eat there. This hotel is right on the St. Charles street car line. You can ride all day for $3 and we took it to the garden district and enjoyed the older homes (John Goodman and Sandra Bullock homes) and Lafayette Cemetery. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful! I loved them and they made this stay really good. Oh and please don't forget to have a warm cookie in the evening when you walk by the front desk :)
