"Convenient location, horrible staff attitude"

3
User 13/05/2022

We stayed here four nights. The location is close to the French Quarter without being noisy. The room was comfortable, if a bit dated. Unfortunately, the front desk staff had a horrible attitude. They were not rude per se, but you could feel the barely suppressed eye roll when we had to ask for anything. And ask we did, the keys to our room stopped working every day. Every. single. day. In addition, we asked for additional towels and trash removal multiple times, and service was never provided.

"Everything was HORRIBLE"

Donnieyo, Tacoma, Washington 29/04/2022

My cardkey broke twice. The lobby smelled like mold. The AC unit broke and my room was 78 degrees and humid. The AC system refrigeration line broke on the roof and flooded the hotel lobby with pink coolant. The staff didn't communicate effectively or take responsibility or show any empathy. They evacuated us to another hotel without any real explanation or offer of credit. The restaurant was mediocre to bad. Stay away from this hotel!

Ryan Knight, Innkeeper at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear Donnieyo, First, I want to thank you for your feedback. While I wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We are very sorry that you felt our employees showed no empathy towards the situation, we were trying our best to not interrupt your vacation and moved you right away to a sister property with no incidents. However, I am happy to hear that Gary, our front office manager, acted and refunded you right away. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience you experienced as we continue to work to re-imagine the hotel and improve your guest experience.

"Old Hotel needs Updating"

LorneJoel, Summerville, South Carolina 25/04/2022

Hotel is very old and has an odor about it. Check in was fine. Room was ok but every door, drawer, closet will not shut properly. Door lock only works if you pull up on the handle. This would have been nice to know. Curtains very old and worn. A/C worked, bed ok and bathroom clean. Overall okay but can do better.

Ryan Knight, Innkeeper at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
We appreciate your feedback. We are working hard every day to correct the mentioned issues. We hope you would consider us again on your next trip to New Orleans. :)

User 25/04/2022

After getting up at 3am to fly to New Orleans, was checked-in by very friendly and professional Sharnell, who even offered me my room immediately without having to wait and/or pay for being early. This way could have rested, but worked right away. Now grabbing a coffee downstairs... check-in, room, etc. Perfect. Thanks.

Ryan Knight, Innkeeper at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
We appreciate your feedback. Sharnell always goes above and beyond for our guests. I will personally recognize her for her outstanding customer service. We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to New Orleans. :)

Vickilynn111, Douglasville, Georgia 20/04/2022

This hotel was in a good location. We were near the water. We were also within walking distance of the Casinos. The hotel could use an update to some of the furniture. Few pieces were pretty worn. The onsite restaurant is convenient and okay.

wellsfolk, Flower Mound, Texas 19/04/2022

We had a blast in New Orleans and this hotel was so convenient to the French QUarter! Far enough to get away from the noise and craziness but close enough to walk. The room was spacious and clean and the best part was Sharnell at the front desk!! She took great care of us! Always friendly and accommodating, great restaurant recommendations, and always smiling!!! She was truly great!! Thanks for a great experience!!!

Thank you so much for the outstanding review. Sharnell does a wonderful job with assisting our guests. I will personally recognize her for her excellent customer service. We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to New Orleans. :)

"Needs work"

User 18/04/2022

The front desk and service staff was really nice, but my room was pretty gross and I know that's not something they have much control over, so I don't fault them at all for that. I also get that Covid has hurt hotel staffing but dang... I wasn't thrilled with the room I got, even after being moved from one of the rooms that faces the adjacent buildings, with windows that look out toward that, and have basically zero view, other than a concrete wall. Moldy shower ceilings, a big hairball on the floor, a rattly AC unit (which they amazingly fixed on request, hence props to the maintenance team), but all that plus peeling window tint making for sadly bad views of what is actually a pretty nice surrounding, this place is just long overdue for a rehab. The elevator was super slow too. The bones are good, it has potential, but it needs some love. The price was WAY too high for this level of accommodation as it's outfitted, as of the date of this review.

The best place to stay in New Orleans. Everything is in walking distance. The view is incredible, rooms are clean, stuff is friendly, service is great and the restaurant.... breakfast, lunch, dinner. Good food, fair price!

"Overpriced"

1
hg2998, Baltimore, Maryland 15/04/2022

This place is extremely overpriced given the amenities and cleanliness of the rooms provided. It was clear that the window on my room had been broken before and repatched together. The carpet was sticky and gross. The bedsheets were also not clean and my hands got sticky if I touched the bottom sides of them. The safe in the room was not working. The room definitely felt more of a motel-style quality than a $200/night hotel room in NOLA. The wait to just order food once you have sat down in the restaurant was way too long. The only redeeming quality is the friendliness of the front desk staff.

Ryan Knight, Innkeeper at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review

"Dirty and old"

wiscstudent, Madison, Wisconsin 11/04/2022

Don't be fooled by the pictures on the website or the cleanliness of the lobby! When we arrived, our room was poorly lit, smelled like weed, and was dirty. You couldn't see out the window because it was shattered on the outside. The air conditioning vent above the beds was caked in black dust/mold, and every time the air kicked on, dust pieces were thrown out onto the beds. Attempts to sweep them off resulted in black smears across the sheets. We left immediately.

"Not worth the price!"

User 10/04/2022

The front desk clerks were more worried about their conversation than greeting and checking us in. They just went through the motions and told me where to sign. They didn't give us the type of room we booked. They didn't give us enough towels/wash clothes.

"Broken A/C—management did nothing"

1
91discover536029, Arlington, Virginia 10/04/2022

We were in town for the Final Four games. On our second night the A/C broke for the entire hotel. Our room was registering at 86 degrees. Instead of handling the problem, management did not speak with the guests and left the front desk staff with no guidance other than “this is non-refundable,” “please feel free to take a water on the house,” and “try turning the thermostat on and then off (?!?).” The front desk staff was lovely but were clearly out of their depth and had no authority. Eventually enough guests got creative and suggested we be rebooked at sister properties. All the while, though, the Blake was continuing to take new reservations knowing they had a broken A/C system. There was no reimbursement offered for the one night of no air conditioning or the cost to transport ourselves to a new hotel but at that point I was just happy to have a room. I was also aware that with no managers willing to show his or her faces to the throngs of upset guests, we were unlikely to receive any type of compensation and should just be happy to have a new room elsewhere (in a markedly less convenient location).

Had a wonderful stay at the Blake Hotel...noticed several times an employee named Sharnell was so efficient. She was so kind and helpful .

Room was extremely small. There was a terrible ordor like mildew or something. Bathroom tub had a huge crack in it and just looked dirty, like it hadn't been cleanes in months. Overall experience,, I would never stay here again.

"Awful Experience"

brucehoffman1977, Charleston, South Carolina 06/04/2022

AC did not work in room when we checked in. We reported it It was not fixed in over 24 hours. Our room was 84 degrees on a Sunday afternoon and no member of management was available to answer questions despite the AC being out in the entire hotel. The poor girl at the front desk tried to help , but noone in management would answer her calls. She eventually moved us to a sister hotel where we got the last and worst room in the hotel. During the whole ridiculous process we were not offered any compensation or refund on our $500/night room for all of our trouble. Noone from Blake management ever contacted us. They are clearly incompetent and don't care in the least about customer satisfaction.. A big negative to our New Orleans experience on Final Four weekend. .

Mr. Hoffman, I have replied to you directly via e-mail. Again, I am so sorry for your experience, and if you would like to speak further, you can reach me at the hotel.

"Worst Stay Ever!!!!!"

User 06/04/2022

We booked a room at the Blake Hotel for the NCAA Tournament Weekend. It was incredibly expensive, but we understand the nature of demand pricing. We arrived to find there was no housekeeping (not disclosed at any point during booking). Our room smelled of cigar smoke. There was a stain on the bedspread. It was sickeningly hot, and no adjustment to the thermostat changed that. Neither the sink nor the tub drained. But we put up with it. On our second night April 2, we came home to a room registering at 78 degrees. It was literally unbearable. It only dipped to 76 degrees by morning (see attached photo). In the middle of the night, someone knocked on our door. We were afraid and wanted to lock it from the inside; come to find, the safety lock was broken off at the hinges. Upon inspection we realized someone had previously broken the lock and clearly broken into the room, given the broken door jam. There was literally blood splatter on the outside of the lock. This made us feel incredibly unsafe. There was no restricted entry to the building nor the rooms (no key access at elevators or stairwell). We were literally terrified to stay there - for our safety and the security of our belongings. With the broken lock, the horrific and unprofessional conditions, and the absolute lack of service or accountability, we packed our things and moved down the street to the Lafayette Hotel, at GREAT additional cost. We did not ask for a refund for the 2 nights we'd stayed, we simply asked to be released from the final 3 nights of our booking given the awful conditions. Your staff refused. For nearly $500/night, we expected a SAFE, clean, HVAC-comfortable accommodation. We didn't expect anything 5 star, but the complete lack of basic security and the unbearable lack of sanitation and temperature control made this unacceptable of ANY room rate, much less $500/night.

Rebecca Potts, General Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
I am truly sorry for the experience you had, and the impression you got of our hotel. I am eager to address the specific items you mentioned, but since I do not have your name or contact information, I will ask that you reach out to me at the hotel when you're able. I will address a few concerns here. On our website, since March of 2020, we have had the following notice: "Limited housekeeping service during your stay but we are glad to refresh and replace amenities upon your request." We also have a sign at our front desk with this info as well. Most hotels these days are not providing daily service, first due to Covid concerns, and lately due to labor and staffing shortages. We do apologize, and hope that our industry recovers so that are able to provide daily service again. We had an outage with our AC unit last Sunday. While we immediately contacted our AC maintenance and repair company, since it was a Sunday evening it did take a few hours for someone to arrive on property. We were happy that we were able to have the repair done so quickly, as we do understand how important AC is here in NOLA, and apologize for the inconvenience. We had our entire management team report to property immediately to help our guests, and I'm sorry if we did not catch you during that time. Our team takes safety and security very seriously, and I feel both proud of our policies and procedures, and lucky, that we have not had any incidents regarding guest safety since I started at this property over a year ago. We have a single point of entry, and our entrance locks with access only to guest and employee keys. During big events and busy times, we often unlock the doors to prevent congestion in the doorway, and this is always done only when our desk and lobby are fully staffed with a clear line of sight to the door. I am sorry that we missed replacing the security latch in your room... these are often broken when guests use them to prop open the door to make a quick trip to an ice machine or a neighboring room when travelling with a group. No rooms have been broken in to. No red stains or splatters have been found, though the popularity of the red Hurricane cocktail is bane of hotel carpets and bedding in NOLA, and I would certainly investigate more closely if I had any information to find what room you were in during your stay. The Final Four event was the largest our city has seen in several years, and was always booked as a full deposit, non refundable reservation. However, I would be happy to issue credit for your un-used nights, and I apologize that we did not do a better job of addressing your concerns throughout your stay and correcting any issues right away. I do hope that you'll contact me at the hotel so that I can follow up with my team with some specific information. Thank you for your feedback, hope to hear from you soon.

"Rude, slow, Dirty windows, No cleaning"

Mike B, DesPlaines, United States 01/04/2022

Be aware that this hotel will not clean your room during your stay. Windows were muddy, so your city view will likely be obstructed. They will add a 23.00 charge to your room at check in. If you complain, they will take the charge off, but after you check out, they will put the 23.00 charge back on your bill. Pretty sly, huh?

"NO ROOM SERVICE"

Louis P, Waukegan, Illinois 01/04/2022

After we checked in we were told that there was Zero room service. Get your own towels, soap and toilet paper from the front desk. The front desk staff was courteous - not their fault The room looked nothing like the pictures.

User 30/03/2022

Sharnell, was the reason this hotel was top notch. The hotel is in need of major renovations. I will say however, the staff was incredible. The restaurant although not affiliated with the hotel was an excellent addition. The location could not have been better, if you are cruising, this is a great location to stay, walkable to all the great tourist places (Bourbon Street, River Walk, French Quarter etc.) Then a very short uber ride to the pier, (you could walk but we chose not to because of our luggage). We stayed in a King Suite which was absolutely amazing views and space. I will say again, this hotel need a multi million dollar reno.

The staff and the location of the hotel are the best things about this property. It is really in need of a major renovation. Painting, new furnishings, replacing carpet and plumbing repair are needed. The mattress was so uncomfortable. It actually sagged into the middle.

cf108228, Hartford, Connecticut 22/03/2022

Room smelled horrible, stains all over carpet, sheets and shower curtain. Refrigerator with a solids block of ice and door wouldn't close. Cabinet the refrigerator is in was falling apart, found dirty shirt in closet. Hair all over the bathroom, sink disgustingly dirty. Looks like they haven't cleaned the air vents in years if ever. Probably more that I am not thinking about.

VMckenzie1972, Huntsville, Texas 17/03/2022

We had a great time visiting New Orleans!! The hotel is in the heart of the city which makes parking difficult if you arrive after the parking garage closes but they have valet and they make everything very easy for guests. The hotel staff was really nice and greeted us sincerely as we entered the hotel. The rooms were clean and well stocked. The size of the room isn't huge because of the age of the hotel but there was a small fridge and microwave in the room along with a nice work station. We would stay here again given the opportunity

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and it was fabulous! We stayed on the top floor and had a great view, Bria was so kind to us checking in and making sure we loved our room! I was nervous to be on the top floor but it was great! This was the perfect location for us. It was within walking distance to everything we wanted to go to and it was far enough away from the party scene that it wasn't loud at night. Perfect place for a couple!

"Mardi Gras Weekend"

User 27/02/2022

The younger crew was nice to us. The older women specifically manager was very rude. Telling us to keep a wristband on all weekend and if we take a shower and it gets wet it will be $40 to replace. Rooms were muggy and outdated. Convenient location to main areas; bourbon/canal streets. No hot water in showers at all during the day. Parking was building behind hotel so that was convenient. Definitely not worth $350 a night but I guess we had to pay for Mardi Gras festivities. 6/10 stars.

"Rude front desk staff and front desk manager Gary"

1
User 21/02/2022

My complaint is with the front desk staff and manager Gary Tranhan of front desk staff. My adult daughter and I were given a red armband on Friday, 2/18/22, and were told to put our name on the paper that we received them and we would show the front door person the red band to come back into the hotel during the parade to use the bathroom if needed. Ok, fine. Then Saturday, 2/19/22, we leave to watch the parades again so we stopped at the front desk and asked for another armband. This is when the problem started. The front desk three ladies said we were supposed to keep up with the original red band given the day before and the only way they would let us back into our hotel we had already paid in full for a four-day stay is to pay another $40.00 to replace the armband. I said we would not pay any additional money to come back into a hotel we already paid in full to stay for four days. The front desk staff continued to tell us then we would not be let back in and they continued to look at us like this was our problem and they had no intention of solving it unless we paid additional money to replace the armbands. . I asked for them to make a copy of the paper we put our names on when we originally received the armband and we could show that at the door and was told they would not. This conversation took place over a 15 min period. I then asked for the manager who is Gary and we explained we were not aware we were supposed to keep up with the armband for the entire period we were there. We had already removed them and they were thrown out with the trash by the cleaning service. Gary told us that the replacement fee was stated on the paper we had put our name on, as if, that was that and we should have not let them get thrown out. He and the staff were actually getting on to us for not keeping up with the bands. Again, the manager said we would have to pay additional money to get back into the hotel. He refused to give a copy of the paper we put our names on when we originally received the armband. This is when things got escalated into a loud yelling scene between my adult daughter and the manager Gary. The yelling began when Gary was not trying to resolve the issue when clearly the armbands' only purpose was to keep the non-hotel guests from coming into the hotel to use the bathroom during the parade time. Gary said twice he was not going to give a copy of the paper and we had to pay the money to get another armband. We had asked for a copy of the paper or proof we were hotel guests in a very calm manner prior to any yelling or dropping the F-bomb. Gary was very rude and insisted my daughter was the one who escalated the matter. My daughter didn't start to escalate her voice until both the front desk ladies and manager both refused to solve the issue and kept saying we would have to pay money to get another band if we wanted back into the hotel. NOW REMEMBER WE WERE GUESTS OF THIS HOTEL AND HAD ALREADY PAID IN FULL FOR A FOUR-DAY STAY. So, they wanted us to pay to get back into our hotel. Gary and the front desk ladies continued to look at us as this was our problem. After a continued heated yelling scene Gary finally made a copy of the paper that had our names on it and we continued with our day. It is a shame we were treated as if this was our problem. Yes, we did not keep up with the original armband, but that is not the way to solve a problem of guests of the hotel when the bands' sole purpose was just to prove we were guests of the hotel. Geeze, just give us a copy of our paid receipt we paid to stay at the hotel and be done with it. Gary and the front desk staff had to make a bigger issue of this than it needed to be. Voices would not have been raised if they just knew how to solve the matter. They all need customer service training and especially need to remember, we were their guest of the hotel. This experience alone is the reason we will never stay at that hotel again and will also contact corporate Best Western. After all that when we came back to the hotel that night, the front door person wasn't even checking who was coming in or out of the hotel.

"Great location"

Roberta H, Goodells, Michigan 21/02/2022

This hotel is in a great location, streetcar right outside, walking distance to the warehouse district, French quarter and waterfront. Front desk staff is amazing! Room was clean, nice hot showers. Great view from the 10th floor. And with the restaurant downstairs food was easy to come by when too tired from walking around.

"Amazing!"

We stayed 3 nights the first weekend of carnival/Mardi Gras season. The hotel is on the parade route so that was fantastic. The room was nice, bed comfortable & the view was great. But the staff really makes this place the best! Ryan, assistant GM I think, was so accommodating & friendly. Scott, maintenance/all around guy, was incredible. Kim, Gary & the rest of the staff were great! They made it feel like we were staying with friends!

"Very nice staff"

User 20/02/2022

I stayed at this property during Mardi Gas, which is a very busy time. However, the staff went out of their way to give us individualized attention. One of the members of my party was severely intellectually disabled. Shamika in security and Ms Kim is housekeeping kept a very close watch over us. I noticed that they made it a point to treat all of the disabled people with the greatest respect. They encouraged them to enjoy themselves and have fun but safely. Then when I had a concern about my account, Ms. Sharnell addressed it immediately in a kind, professional manner. Even the man selling wristbands and maintenance man were really nice and attentive us. I also had an awesome view of the parades from my window.

"Don't Stay Here! Great Location...And That's About It"

shaunaharris2022, Brewton, Alabama 14/02/2022

First off, the 2 ladies at front desk were nice and not the problem. The elevator is slow and multitasks the floors to stop on. Our morning showers were cold, even my other friends staying at the hotel, and we all had children. Checked out at 10:55am and requested valet, took almost an hour, and the driver was speeding and swerving when he shot past the hotel. We demanded he stop and get out, and when we got in we notice a quarter tank of gas lower than we left the previous day, and smoke odor which leads us to believe he went joy riding in our vehicle.

"Poor customer service and lack of cleaning"

1
User 11/02/2022

I stayed at the hotel for 4 days recently and had a horrible experience. The hotel was gross and staff were unhelpful. There was a giant red carpet stain, multiple cracks in the walls and ceiling and all the photos were crooked. The alarm clock went off every 5 minutes starting as soon as we arrived until we unplugged it and the bathroom doesn't even have a fan or steady water pressure. Most of the furniture was broken and leaning and there is no control for temperature. I found bugs by the last day and still they didn't address it. I completed the survey to explain many problems and they sent a generic response over a week later. The response didn't even acknowledge my concerns. It just said they use all results to better experiences. You would think they would at least address that I had multiple experiences in their hotel that were very negative. I will never stay here again. The only pro of this hotel is its location but it isn't worth the filth you live in.

thuynh5, New Orleans, Louisiana 06/02/2022

I stayed here and the room was bot vacuumed efficiently. There were crumbs and dirt along the baseboards. There was also a car that was broken into and it belonged to a guest. There was no security to walk the premises. It was scary because my car was just 2 down from theirs. Overall, for the price, I would not stay here again.

Ryan Boudreaux, Innkeeper at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Thanks for leaving your feedback. I will be looking into the cleanliness you mentioned, but unfortunately, we are not responsible for vehicles that don't use the valet service. Street parking is parking at your own risk. We do have security on weekends when we are at our busiest, but we are hoping to extend that to everyday. :)

"No hot water & very dated"

2
User 30/01/2022

No hot water in our room for both days despite letting the front desk know after day 1. Maintenance guy came by and said ‘yeah this is our worst offending room for hot water'. Hotel is half empty so why place us in the worst room?! Front desk didn't seem to care and were mostly just chatting. They also just let homeless people from the street walk in to the hotel without word. Lifts were very dated as was the hotel in general. As a paying guest it didn't feel particular safe as a result or even looked after very well. On the plus side he bed was nice and big and it was quiet. The heating worked well too. Unlikely to stay again and would probably recommend to others as somewhere to avoid.

We are very sorry to hear your stay was less than perfect. I will look into this situation and make the appropriate corrections. If you would like to speak with me about your experience, please feel free to contact me

Thanks Blake Hotel.

Other than the handle missing on the front door. The lobby was well put together. I don't mind out-dated hotel rooms, but I do mind cleanliness and this room was not clean...The sheets looked dingy and there was hair on the bathroom floor. I recommend that housekeeping pay a little more attention to details when cleaning.

tsmith3320, Vicksburg, Mississippi 13/01/2022

The rooms are very small, and there is no hotel free parking. The fact that the hotel didn't provide free parking for there guests is just unheard of to me. I wish I could get a refund or have the hotel pay my parking ticket.

Rebecca Potts, General Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Thank you for being our guest. I apologize that your stay was affected by the parking situation in downtown NOLA. Unfortunately, we simply do not have a parking lot on our property. We offer our guests valet service through a very dependable third party, and there are several lots and garages in the area that are available at low rates, but very little complimentary parking in such an urban area. We hope you enjoyed your time in the city, and that you'll consider us for a future stay.

There is no parking available at this facility. We had to park at a nearby garage on the opposite side of the hotel and walk outside and around the building to get to the hotel lobby. We had to pay $30 per night for the parking.

Thank you for being our guest. While we feel so fortunate to have a location right in the heart of the city with easy access to everything for our guests, it does mean that parking can be a challenge.

User 02/01/2022

I booked through bluegreen vacation and while being told I was staying at the marquee we were out here. While the front desk staff was helpful we can to come down to the desk anytime we needed something as they did not have anyone to bring anything up. We stayed four days and a maid never came in once. The beds made a horrible sound any time you moved. It was $137 to park for three nights. While the location was good it was certainly not worth the money

Rebecca Potts, General Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Thank you for being our guest! I apologize for any confusion with your reservation, but am glad you ended up staying with us.

The BW Blake Hotel was an excellent choice for a little night out in New Orleans. The building is dated, but is clean and decorated well. I was so impressed with Ms. Kim at the front desk. She had helpful information about parking and the surrounding area, and made me feel like an extra special guest. I was so pleased when I had breakfast in the restaurant that is attached. I had a real homemade biscuit and the best sausage I have ever had. The waitstaff was equally attentive as the front desk staff. This hotel is such a bargain. I will definitely be visiting again.

Find a new hotel. Staff seemed friendly but that's literally the only thing it has going for it. Smelt like gas. My non smoking room smelt like cigarettes. If I had stayed at motel 6 it would have been cheaper but better quality

"Good hotel in the business district - minutes from the Quarter or the Garden District"

User 20/12/2021

The BW Blake Hotel was a great option for us, midway between the Quarter and the Garden District. The staff was attentive and the hotel, while obviously built in the 1980's or so has aged well and is kept in good repair and lovely decor. Sharnell helped me with a question when I called before we even arrived, and then I was happy to find her at the Front Desk when we checked in, and she managed to find us an available room when we got to the hotel long before technical check in time (rather than us having to leave bags in the car or with a concierge). We agreed that we will likely revisit the Blake upon our next trip to New Orleans.

Very very very dirty rooms. They haven't been vacuumed this century. The ladies come through and change the sheets after each guest—THAT IS IT. Hair and finger prints on the mirrors, doors, floors from the previous guests. Nasty indeed. But Sharnell at the front desk was so pleasant that you almost hate to complain. Very nice lady, very nasty hotel. And the front door handle was broken off. Ghetto.

I travel a lot as a tour guide, so I have stayed in MANY hotels around the world. I normally have a group with me. To save money on this solo trip and stay within my budget, I decided to try a hostel. BIG mistake! My first night there was horrific and they would not refund the 2nd night. Distraught, I stopped by the Blake Hotel, and the front desk team could not have been kinder and more compassionate. Thanks to Kim, Rebecca, and Sharnell, i got a beautiful cozy room for my last night in New Orleans. Worth every penny! Plus, I had a delicious dinner at thé restaurant — fried green tomatoes with shrimp. With much gratitude to the fine women (angels) at the Front desk of the Blake, my first trip to NOLA turned out great! They even found me an affordable taxi driver—Trey's Transport—to get to the airport. May they be blessed!

The hotel was fantastic. Very clean rooms and lobby. The staff is incredibly positive and joyful to deal with. I would absolutely stay at this hotel anytime I I am in the New Orleans area.

"False advertising, tiny rooms, high cost parking, no breakfast."

pnguin9999, Saint Louis, Missouri 17/08/2021

The website shows nice average size rooms, in truth they are the size of a large walk in closet. They also advertise a free breakfast, there is none. Even with Covid, the other Best Westerns we stayed at offered a bag breakfast. The valet only parking is outrageous at $47.00 dollars before adding a tip. It took twenty minutes just to get the key cards because the clerk had to restart the coding machines twice to get them to work. My father placed a wake up call request which never came. Overall, a big disappointment for a supposed three star hotel. I've had a better experience at Motel 6.

Thank you for being our guest. I apologize for any confusion with your booking... our website is up to date with pictures of our current available rooms, and we do not have any food and beverage on site and have never offered a free breakfast.

"Amazing Staff/Service"

User 14/08/2021

The staff at The Blake made this a wonderful experience. Although we did encounter some minor maintenance issues, they were handled professionally and to our satisfaction. The location was a little further from the French Quarter than we anticipated; but, directly on the St. Charles and Canal Street trolley lines. Don't miss breakfast at the hotel! Our food and service were wonderful and offered at a reasonable cost. Overall a good choice.

I enjoyed my one night stay at the Blake Hotel. It is very easy to get to. The bathroom was super clean. This is what I look for when staying at hotels. Staff was very nice. When we got there the room we were given smelled smoky. My husband went to the front desk and they immediately changed our room. They have a cute restaurant right there in the hotel which makes it easy to get something to eat.

"Complete and Utter Trash"

User 07/08/2021

Best Western should be ashamed and embarrassed to put their name on this hotel. It was just completely trash. The check in process was a nightmare and took forever, the two junkies in front of us couldn't figure out how to get their debit card working to pay for one night. The lobby smelled of weed, the room was dirty and looked like it hadn't been cleaned since before covid. It smelled like cigarettes, weed, and rancid meat, the bathroom has something growing in the toilet and multiple peoples' hairs all over the bathroom, the sheets has yellow greasy stains on them, the desk, headboard and night stands had greasy films on them. We checked in and checked out, cancelling the remaining part of our trip.

The parking garage that we used is across the street, the Pan American Life Center on Poydras. Parking is $25 a day instead of valet parking with the hotel for $39.90. The garage has an App to pay for parking. The hotel is in a central location to walk around the French Quarter... if you're traveling during the summer months, keep water and stay hydrated. It may not seem far as you begin to walk, but the heat makes a difference. Connected to the Parking Garage is a Starbucks and Smoothie shop. The corner room that we stayed in was nice and cold. Will definitely stay here again.

ugoogolme, Memphis, Tennessee 19/07/2021

The hotel entrance itself was great as well the online pictures but once we got to our room it was absolutely a totally different scene it was very filthy. We had to go and purchase items to clean the room. We even found empty liquor bottles under the bed, an extremely sticky/dirty window, there were long strands of hair on the bed sheets. I only saw two housekeepers (a older black lady and a older black gentleman) cleaning the lobby only our whole stay. Parking sucks, prepare to pay $49 to park or valet. I heard they remodeled the hotel but only the lobby area the room was up to standards our hotel room #804 was really outdated. Our experience was not a good one so needless to say that we absolutely will not be staying at Blake Hotel again.

"PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING!"

tdwkdw, Baker, Louisiana 02/07/2021

My boyfriend and I booked a king size room for one night, July 1st-2nd, 2021. The room was HORRIBLE. They obviously did NOT clean the room before our arrival. There was trash(fake rose petals, empty mini alcohol bottles, and food wrappers) on the side of the bed. The sheets were not clean. When asked about it they said (during a pandemic ) they clean rooms every THREE days. The hotel is very outdated and has a strange moth-ball like smell. Little stuff like the plugs being upside down, bathtub/sink not being cleaned, dingy furniture, and a dirty office chair in room was the LEAST disturbing thing. I had my ipad in my room and somehow it ends up in the managers office. The staff showed little concern about my item being some how being misplaced and didn't give me an explanation as to how it ended up there. 0/10 stars. I advise anyone who reads this to NEVER book this hotel. Pictures below.

"Hotel or Motel"

DO NOT STAY HERE! There are 3 hotels across the street, STAY THERE! The only good things about this hotel is the location, a working microwave & an iron that doesn't stain your clothes. All of the pictures are photoshopped because the actual room is dingy/dark AF! Only the lobby/1st floor area is bright & looks like the pictures promoted. >THIS IS NOT OWNED BY BEST WESTERN so don't be tricked, they're a privately run hotel. >Staff: gave no proper greeting or appreciation during stay, not welcoming & the afternoon guy is slow. >Guests: I saw people come in this hotel with blankets & bags of clothing like they live there >It's Promise: "industry leading cleaning experience", I saw no one wiping down anything in the hotel to keep things sanitized. I saw 1 housekeeper and lobby attendance for my entire stay of 4 nights, they're not cleaning ANYTHING. They're also promoting "housekeeping provided daily" we were told, after inquiring about a Do Not Disturb sign, they only clean rooms on the 3rd day. On the 3rd day no one had cleaned my room & when I called to inquire they said "your room isn't on the list". Housekeeping supervisor offered clean towels & cleaning the next morning, both were pointless offers. Mind you someone was next door cleaning a room & neither the housekeeping manager nor lobby attendant knew who that person was TF! >Room: After checking in I saw the room was nothing like the pictures & asked to be moved to another updated room. The first room (7th fl) was also small and cramped for a room that was supposed to fit 4 people comfortably. The second (2 queen size bed) room (5th fl) had more space though the desk blocked the refrigerator so I had to put the chair in the closet to get a clear path. >The TV was not connected & ready for guests arrival. >The iron board was horribly stained and there were no outlets next to the beds. >There is no password to the free wifi which means anyone close enough to the hotel can use it & slow up/hack guests usage/information. >Bed: not firm, made squeaking noise, headboard is positioned under the air conditioner >Bathroom: stain in tub, rusted toilet, loose door knob, shower only gave hot water, piece from ceiling above shower was left on the side of the tub (something could've crawled through the hole) sink was clogged & cracked, paint on walls were peeling. >Damages: door to cabinet w/ refrigerator & microwave was off the hinge

utfinsfan, New Orleans, Louisiana 29/06/2021

Don't stay here. Roach infestation. The staff is aware of it and blame everything and everyone (Lake Charles evacuees, COVID, inability to clean, lack of staff). For $105 a night plus another $50 for parking (have to valet) I expected better and the infestation should have been disclosed upon checking so the customer can make an informed decision. I will never recommend this hotel.

"Avoid this property"

js19851967, Greenville, Texas 29/06/2021

Lack of parking in front of hotel for guests to check in. Poor customer service. Called property to obtain parking instructions only to have the phone ring well over 20 times before hanging up to call again. The entire property smelled of smoke odor. Room was old and dated and bathroom tile had mold and stained grout. I was scared to walk into the shower which was dirty and the shower head had not been cleaned so the water coming out was going in different directions other than down on my person. Front desk employees aren't knowledgeable or helpful. Pictures on their website are not indicative of the property. Don't be fooled. Avoid this place at all cost. Spend the extra money on a better property.

We had a lovely visit here this week. When we first arrived there was an issue in our room with the ac and they quickly got us moved into another room where everything was functional. Gary at the front desk was an amazing help and always greeted us by name and with a smile. This man deserves a raise. We had no issues with the room cleanliness or decor, all was fine. The hotel is older but remodeled and we enjoyed our visit. The Cafe downstairs offered many lovely choices and we ate there 3 times. Overall very nice accommodations.

Booked 5 nights at The Blake and stayed for only 1. The Room was disgusting. It was obvious that they do not clean on a daily, monthly or even yearly bases. There was build up of months/years of grime. How do they just go about their business charging customers as if they have some kind of standards?? Just terrible. Gary at the front desk was very nice and informative but all else was a horrible experience. Just gross.

User 07/06/2021

I will not be staying at Blake Hotel again. My experience was terrible from the beginning. I was given a room that smelled like cigarettes. I requested a new one. The new room clearly had not been cleaned, there was some trash pieces on the floor. The cleaning staff also never cleaned my room. I called and complained and the man at the front desk gave me such bad excuses, I was so fed up and I just asked him to bring me some clean towels. He said he would, but didn't. I had to call back within an hour for the towels again. That same night some other guests were smoking weed so our whole floor and the elevator smelled like weed. It's in a nice location, but not worth the bad service.

When you walk in the lobby it looks like you're at a five-star hotel. But the minute you open the door to your room you realize you're not. These rooms are all damp musty there's mold on the ceiling in the bathrooms are Fossetts dripping all night And for some reason they have no linens. I would suggest bringing your own towel and washcloth if you can.

User 29/05/2021

The level of filthiness of this place is disturbing! In my almost 40 years I never seen a hotel this dirty and neglected. Old, stinky, FILTHY. It states “ recently remodel hotel”. The only thing that is remodeled is the first floor lobby area. The carpet that smells like sweat and pee have not been washed in years. Mold in the bathroom, old ceiling leak that no one cares to fix. The list goes on. We checked in late on Thursday night. After switching to 3d room I gave up. It was non-refundable stay , therefore, I could not get any of my money back and my budget did not allow just to forget $510 that we paid for 3 nights. On Friday we went to CVS and bought cleaning supplies to clean the room. Even after that a feeling that something keeps on crawling over me did not leave me at night. Not a single time we saw a cleaning crew! We stayed 3 nights. I had to hunt for coffee and shampoo refills at the front desk. An average gas station has cleaner facilities. Not even mentioning that its still Covid time. Not a single time There were someone disinfecting doors and handles like Marriott or other hotels do. The staff is more interested in watching TV in the back room then doing what they are supposed to do. Just disgusting !

I'm so sorry to hear about your negative experience. I would love to hear from you directly, as I'm unsure if your stay was at our property. While we have enjoyed several refreshes in the last few years, we do not have any websites advertising a recent remodel. We aim to provide consistently excellent service, and while mistakes and errors can occur, our team is ready to make it right at any time... if a room was reported to be below our standard, we would offer to immediately service the room, and if that was not sufficient or possible at that time, we would be happy to help with alternate accommodations, a refund, or a credit. All amenities are available delivery, or from our fully stocked front desk at any time, and our team is always up front, with no back room or any TV in any employee area. If your stay was indeed at the Blake Hotel on St. Charles Ave in New Orleans, please contact me at the hotel so that I can learn more and address any issues you encountered during your stay.

"Not a good experience"

bonniew43, Mount Vernon, Washington 28/05/2021

Best Western hotels are usually always clean and pretty nice so I took a chance on this one. Check in was okay and we got our keys went up to the room and the room literally had NO windows! There are two 6-in wide windows that look out onto a wall and the room is extremely dark and cave-like. I have claustrophobia and could not stay there. We asked for another room with windows and they obliged with a room on the corner with three big windows. But it had one small queen bed for me and my sister. Not enough beds! We went down to the desk again to change rooms when we got into our room which had a dysfunctional door handle, it was dirty and not made up. We went back down and they sent a maid up to clean the room. So I know the room was clean ish but the hallways are dirty. The elevators are dirty and if you look closely in the room against the walls and in the corners, there's a lot of scuzz. On the bright side, Kaysha at the front desk was a gem. None of the problems were her fault and she was very polite during our interactions about the three different rooms. Another bright spot is the French onion soup in the Corner Cafe in the hotel.

Rebecca Potts, General Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Thank you for being our guest, and for providing your feedback. I apologize for the confusion on your first day with us. The room type that you booked provides 2 queen beds and a larger room, but does have narrow windows. While this ensures a cozy and quiet stay, we understand if you'd prefer a different room type with a great view. Our corner suites offer an excellent view with wrap-around windows, and that upgrade was offered, but as you noted, the bedding is not the 2 queen beds, but 1 queen and a pull-out sofa. With the scramble to find the perfect room for your early check-in, we provided a room option that was not ready for check-in, and I'm glad we were able to get it serviced for you right away. I'll be sure to pass on your compliments to Kaysha, she is absolutely a treasure and we're very lucky to have her on our team! I hope that you'll reach out to us when planning your next trip to NOLA.

"RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN"

Neal and Julie T, Fort Worth 23/05/2021

Reserved 2 rooms, a king and 2 queen room. We went to the king first. First complaint-smelled like death and stinky feet. No big deal, yea, try sleeping in the rotten smell. At night the pot/weed/marijuana smell was so bad, we coughed all night. We took the extra blanket and shoved it under the door to close the inch gap so the smell didn't come in so thick. The mattress was so old it had 2 body indentions from overuse through the years, without being rotated. When you laid down, you sank to the box spring. The mattress also had what appeared to be bug debris/dirt. The coverlet had stains which appeared to to ejaculate fluid. Under the bed was leftover Carmex from a previous guest, among other items. The bathroom had urine stains around the toilet and hair in the tub. When we went to the double room, the door knob was broken. With a little manipulation, we were able to get it right. The double room smelled better but the amount of pubic hair in the bathroom was disgusting. It was embedded in the shower curtain, as well. Another real concern we had was the keys not working. The room key would work then not. When you leave and it works and then come back and the key doesn't work, it seems strange. We were extremely concerned about why the keys worked and then didn't. The female at the front desk was horrible rude. Waiting to get my keys reprogrammed again, she is speaking to people on the phone rudely but then after she hung up, WOW, what she said about the people was horrible. Customer service could use some help. We asked for a late check out and she said for $50 she could make it happen. Would that be in cash, in your pocket?? This hotel is a lesser expensive hotel and there is a reason. Music loud and late, strange people hanging around the halls (we called the front desk about 1 man) smells that made you sick and questionable key functions is a small part of my complaint. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

kieynafrank, Grand Prairie, Texas 22/05/2021

If there was an extremely poor option, this hotel would get it. I just checked out today and it was a horrible experience. There were several issues and all of them were brought to management and I was told this is the way things are right now! And I'm not lying, I took pictures to prove it! 1. I arrived to my room and I noticed that my sheets had some spots on it. So I wanted to call the front desk, but my phone had no cords. I literally just had a phone with no physical line connections. 2. I then stepped into the bathroom as I continued to inspect the room and saw mildew spots on the ceiling over the tub area. 3. I begin to unpack my baby's medication that needs to be kept cool and I noticed the fridge. I had an ounce of excitement until I realized by the end of the night that the fridge does not get cold. Even after attempting to set it to the max temperature. I expressed to management the need for my fridge to be cool and it was explained to me that our fridges don't get cold. 3. I tried my best to get through the first night and predicted that my next two nights will be a little better because housekeeping will come and refresh my room. Sorry I thought that would happen. Housekeeping did not come to my room at all!!!!! Not one time during my stay. ( I was here for 3 nights) Housekeeping did not even come to the floor to pick up the trash or dirty towels from other guests. How sanitary is that during Covid????? When I addressed staff about this concern I was told that employees were told to leave the hallways in that manner with no explanation. Without housekeeping I was without, fresh linen, fresh towels, fresh toiletries( I had to go out and buy my own tissue paper), a smelly room, etc.

While we wait for the last Covid restrictions to be lifted, we are not providing service to occupied rooms, but we are available with all amenities for delivery at any time. I apologize that your stay was so far beyond our standard, and will follow up to ensure that we're communicating effectively and accurately with all guests.

"POTENTIAL TO BE 4-5 STARS"

diamondelite2021, Clinton, Mississippi 13/05/2021

I am an avid fan of The Blake Hotel. I choose it every time. Best Western should consider focusing on THE BLAKE HOTEL to invest in a complete renovation, simple floor plan changes, certain upscale room enlargements, and adding a rooftop lounge because this hidden gem is located in the middle of some of the fanciest hotels in NewOrleans, included the Ritz-Carlton. It has the potential to be a major competitor, but it currently lacks the luxuries of the neighboring hotels. If Best Western Premier Group doesn't invest quickly, then another hotel chain is going to snatch up this hotel quickly and do renovations, upgrades, provide limousine services for certain guests, and make The Blake Hotel the top hotel in New Orleans, LA.

The staff at the Blake Hotel make the difference. In particular, Kim who worked the front desk treated us and other guests like family. All the other staff are polite and friendly. Clean, comfortable rooms. I want to mention the Hotel restaurant, Cafe on the Square, also. Great meals that rival any of the restaurants in the area for breakfast and lunch. The hotel is located in the middle of the downtown area, within easy walking distance of all the popular tourist attractions.

Thank you for being our guest! It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and I'm absolutely thrilled to hear such warm compliments to our friendly team! I'll be sure Kim is recognized for her outstanding service. We're happy to share our favorite local spot, Cafe at the Square, with our guests, and agree that their menu and service is fantastic. We all hope to see you back for another stay, and another meal, soon!

"Disappointing"

User 02/05/2021

When we arrived out front of the hotel, they had no carts and no one to help us (we are in our 70s) - it took us several trips to get our hanging clothes, rolling bags and ice chest with water into our room. I was very disappointed by so many things and would never even consider staying here again. There was a kleenex holder in our room, but it did not have a box of tissues in the holder - when I told them this, they gave us a roll of toilet paper and an apology! The vent in our room is situated where the air hits you right in the face all night - we mentioned this and they made an effort but the whole vent needed to be replaced because a previous person had bent/broken the device that controls changing the air flow ...it was just a hit or miss if anyone cared. Some had a great attitude and others, not so much.

Thank you for being our guest, and for providing your feedback. While we are still re-building our team as our city and industry begins the recovery from the pandemic, we are looking forward to expanding our services and amenities to include bell and luggage service. I'll investigate your former room to ensure any issues with the vent have been taken care of, and I'm sorry that we missed it during our inspection. While mistakes can happen anywhere, it's so important that we handle them with empathy and resolution, and I will be sure to share your feedback with our team so that we can continue to grow and improve.

"No Parking or Amenities"

diamondelite2021, New Orleans, Louisiana 01/05/2021

To whom it may concern: I'm an avid United States traveler and usually a Ritz-Carlton Corporate Guest. Although the *Best Western Premier Collection Brand* is still no Ritz-Carlton, I'm still the perfect guest to offer constructive feedback at nearly any hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here at The Blake Hotel New Orleans in corner Suite #1013 on the 10th floor with 180° city views. The front desk manager, Ryan Boudreaux, is a jewel and is an absolute asset here at The Blake Hotel [An Ascending BW Premier Hotel]; BW Corporate is very lucky to have him here. New Orleans isn't exactly known for its hospitality, as most of the residents here have lived very hard lives with little to show for it; however, Ryan B. is a true gentlemen who possesses excellent hospitality-industry talent. As usual, I now must write CONSTRUCTIVE criticism of the overall property and experience. The Blake Hotel New Orleans actually considers themselves to be “independent, yet somewhat affiliated” with the Best Western Hotel Family. Having said that, this [extremely understaffed] hotel has merely one or two desk attendants who are adequately trained to navigate the BW Computer Platform; it's not easy to get a definite answer or confirmation concerning information related to Best Western Member accounts, especially Business Advantage Diamond accounts. I see a great future for The Blake Hotel, but quick corporate intervention is required to ensure that all desk staff is adequately equipped with the knowledge necessary to provide minimal and/or detailed information concerning BW Loyalty Guidelines. As a Diamond Elite member, I thoroughly inquired, yet was immediately informed, that I would NOT be receiving any complimentary thank-you gift or additional loyalty points while checking-in, no complimentary room upgrade [so I had to pay for the best room out-of-pocket], no early check-in or check-out options [but Ryan made sure that I was taken care of], no direct reservations line, nor any member-only exclusive offers or benefits. Furthermore, this property charges $20 PER NIGHT for SELF PARKING, which is located a FULL BLOCK away. To make matters worse, this property does NOT offer LUGGAGE CARTS [at all] to guests for checking-in/checking-out; can you imagine the fuss this raises in the lobby? As someone who packed 3 suitcases, 4 bags, 12 pairs of shoes, 15+ hanging suit/tuxedos, ect, I found this extremely disturbing and embarrassing as I sweated constantly for HOURS having to unload and load my car a handful at a time. Considering that most of the top-tier properties nearby offer parking ON-SITE, swimming pools, balconies, room top terraces, and a concierge desk, The Blake Hotel CAN ONLY COMPETE with the nearby hotels by offering customers MUCH MORE. If I had known about the pay-to-park ridiculousness, no luggage carts, no concierge level, no pool, and no outdoor area whatsoever, then I would have chosen another hotel outside of the Best Western Family. I could have paid a lot less money for a room at a hotel across from The Blake that offered complimentary parking, rooftop access, extended dining hours, etc. I hope this helps BW corporate tailor The Blake New Orleans to better fit into its BW Premier Collection. Please note, I enjoyed my stay here, and I enjoyed my interaction with the staff. =)

"So disappointed in this hotel during covid the service is less than desireable"

shanita m, Atlanta, Georgia 25/04/2021

Not offering any housekeeping during covid. Housekeeping won't even empty your trash when you aren't in the room. We had an incident where we needed the linens changed and they wouldn't even change them. They just threw a ball of linen in the room when I say threw I mean threw. It wasn't even folded just threw it in the room and left. I have stayed in a couple of hotels since covid and this hotel's service was TERRIBLE. Certainly not worth how much it cost to stay here. Also every day we had to keep getting our cards reprogrammed because if we didn't we couldn't open the door to our room. The elevator was slow and also the lobby and hallways weren't as clean as you would expect during this pandemic. Location is probably the only plus for this hotel. Close to a lot of restaurants and attractions.

Rebecca Potts, General Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Thank you for being our guest, and for providing your feedback. I apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We suspended daily housekeeping service due to Covid to avoid spreading any germs after the rooms have been sanitized for each new guest, but are absolutely still able to collect any trash or linen placed outside the door, and deliver any fresh linens or amenities for our guests as needed. I'm sorry this was communicated to you more clearly at check in, as we certainly want our guests to have everything they need to be comfortable and welcome during their stay. Should you plan a return trip to New Orleans, I hope that you'll consider reaching out to us so that we can provide an excellent Blake Hotel stay.

Richard F, Clinton, Mississippi 23/04/2021

The public areas seemed to be clean. The room was a bit worn. Floors were not clean, particularly in the bathroom. Furnishings were adequate. A/C was loud. No shower pressure (8th floor room). No daily housekeeping (Covid). Concerned about valet service/procedures - saw my car out front, unrequested by me during our 5 days at the hotel. Duty manager shrugged it off - not a big deal. (It is/was a big deal!!!!) Location is great - a couple of easy blocks to Fr. Quarter. We walked up and down Magazine, Royal, Chartres - good food within a block or two.

"Wow, what an adventure! And I have a story to tell you!"

66KrisB99, Aurora, Colorado 23/04/2021

Let me start by saying that we saw many others in this hotel & they seemed happy. This was not our experience. When we went to our room on the 11th floor, the desk clerk forgot to tell us which elevator actually went to the 11th floor & we had to find the stairs to go up the last flight... scary Nola back stairs & not in a good way either lol! Once we reached our room we were blinded by the 6 overhanging lights(18 60 watt bulbs, yup we counted!) that lit up every thing in the room & made it easy to find all the nastiness (or perform surgery, your choice) & there was no way to tone them down. The wall of mirrors was hilarious & creepy at the same time. So let me describe this room in the nicest way possible. #1- the floor was covered in red stains (blood? koolaide? dunno hard to tell) & was so dirty that you in no way wanted to take off your shoes even to go to bed #2 the white comforter had black footprints on it #3 the desk chair was beyond broken & had vomit stains on it #4 the dust ruffle had a 4 inch burn hole in it Ok fine we are just here to sleep.. but when we went into the bathroom the mirror had actual BLOOD stains on it! It looked like someone popped a giant zit! It was all over the mirror! and- #5 the bathroom floor had really long black hairs on the floor & dirt bunnies breeding in the corners Nope gotta go Room #2 No blood on the mirror but the shower was in pieces! & reeked of decades old cigarette smoke Ok lets try again... Room #3 Nice corner room, but every time someone used the shower it leaked so bad we were afraid that the bathroom ceiling would fall in! None of the outlets worked in the bathroom, the mirror was falling out of the wall, the full length mirror was so old that the "mirror" was flaking off the back, the other outlets in the room were also broken. This room had a lovely view, but with the "smeg" wiped all over the windows, we had to keep the curtains shut. Not to mention that staff were not wearing masks or were wearing them below their chins, we found it quite funny that they did that as the sign on the door said no mask no service.... We did only stay the 1 night as by the time we got to room #3 it was close to midnight & pretty much were beyond exhausted. We met with the very nice manager Ryan who did refund our money & apologized, stating it was under new management. We did take photos, to remember our adventure but honestly until they can get these issues under control I cannot recommend this hotel .

"The photos on the website are deceiving"

DK281, Fairbanks, Alaska 17/04/2021

Beware of the photos on the Blake Hotel website - they are deceiving. The rooms are small, dirty, and old. We received no housekeeping services for our entire visit. We were on the 11th floor with only 1 elevator to service it - plan on waiting in the morning from 9 - 11 AM and in the evening around 5 PM. The smell of marijuana was strong and could be smelled in the hallway and elevator. The bed was old and squeaky. You could definitely feel the bedsprings. The pillows were lumpy. The only bright spots from our hotel stay were Kim (who worked the front desk), the hotel restaurant, and the maintenance guy. Kim was amazing, kind and so friendly. She could have easily become my best friend had I stayed a few extra days :) The hotel restaurant was busy in the morning, but the food was so worth the wait. The tv in our room would not work so the maintenance guy was called up - he was cool, friendly and definitely knew what needed to be done to resolve the tv issue.

User 05/04/2021

Check- in was easy and front desk people were really nice and helpful. However, the room was so disgusting. There were candy wrappers underneath the bed, the toilet had urine on it, and there was dirt and hair all over the bathroom. Our room was not clean at all. If it wasn't for the location, and necessity, we would have left the first night. There was one window (the only one in the room) that was so dirty you could not see outside. Rooms are NOTHING like the pictures. Beware!! The best part of this place is the front desk staff. Also, the maintenance guy is TOP NOTCH. He was always in the elevator cleaning or taking out trash - so friendly. Parking is a nightmare. You have to park a block away and it is $20 a night.

"Should NOT be a "Premier""

N8TVNYRKR, Weeki Wachee, Florida 04/04/2021

I spent 5 nts here in to show my son, visiting from Omaha, what N.O. and the French Quarter was all about! Been coming here since the 90's. Usually I stay at the B/W French Quarter Courtyard, or St. Christopher, but got a good price on this one a few months ago and booked it. The staff are FANTASTIC, but this hotel should NOT be a "premier"! My room had leaked (from the rain) and had to be changed-no problem- BUT the paint chips in the bathrooms, curtains need to cleaned and hemmed, couch looked "dirty" (I wouldn't sit on it), extra pillow in closet had a few blood drops (how do you miss that?) and the water takes forever to get hot - and this was an "upgraded" room! A/C unit is very noisy. There's no breakfast (even w/out the virus) unless you eat in the hotel cafe - which IS pretty good, but you have to pay for it! Parking is about $20 a night if you park it yourself a couple of blocks away, or $45 a night for valet. Definitely not worth the price for a "Premier"! St. Christopher, or the Courtyard from now on!

Stopped in New Orleans for a leisure trip and was greeted by lovely Ms Rebecca .. I arrived at the hotel a tad early but she had no problems accommodating me for a slightly early arrival. I stayed a few days and had no issues. AC works great and anything you need is a call away. Dining is located in the lobby or in close proximity of the hotel.

I frequent Nola a lot and this is always my go to location. I always have an easy, pleasurable check in with Ryan at the front desk who never misses a beat and always serves you with a smile. They are only doing housekeeping every 3 days, with in the room, but Ms Kim will make sure all your needs are met just like you're at home & Mr Don is always nothing but hospitable and attentive. There is a cafe located on the first floor with great places to eat all around. Harrah's is walking distance & tsunami's is right across the street. Great price, friendly staff & great location

Dirty, old, room smelled like old smoke. The furniture was not old, worn, and stained. Room looked like they did not vacuum after last guest. Sheets are old and worn, and stained too, bed spread was worn and stained. Windows dirty, curtains broken and could not close well. I paid too much on the Best Western site saw it a little while later for almost half price on booking. Oh yeah, water was barely lukewarm. We did not checkout the restaurant, just wanted to leave. Valet parking was $40.00 probably average price, or you can park a couple of blocks away for $20.00.

Definitely NOT new remodeled as advertised. Staff is nice but that's about it. So many issues. First we were checked into a room that wasn't serviced, ok no biggie right, just go down and get a new one. The “serviced” room was sad. Peeling paint (badly), very dirty walls, broken curtains, janky drawers, hanging extension cords, dirty mirrors, pooling water in shower, suuuper squeaky bed and non working safe.

The view from my room was beautiful, especially at sunrize. Very pleased with the quality of food in the cafe in the hotel. The fried green tomatoes were perfectly prepared and were delicious. My iced tea, lunch ,and dinners were very good also. I walked through the streets in the surrounding area and felt safe.

The staff was very accommodating, the cafe at the square has something of the BEST food I've ever had in New Orleans. Any requests we had were fulfilled quickly. The bar serves delicious, well mixed, heavy handed drinks. Clean commons areas. We did wish there was a full length mirror OUTSIDE of the bathroom, the beds were comfy enough, and the air and heat circulate quickly...

BradshawMark, Jackson, Mississippi 01/12/2020

I can't complain much because the rates were really low due to COVID-19. I do have some critical information for others considering this hotel. The elevator is very slow and the whole facility has a bit of a “run down” feel to it. There was paint peeling off our walls and there was a big cloudy spot on our window (looked like sandpaper scratches) blocking what might have been a nice view of the city. The cabinet that housed our fridge/microwave was rickety. Those were my only negative observations. The staff was friendly, the place was pretty clean, and the water heater was definitely working well!

First time staying at this establishment, at the beginning of checking in there were some bumps in the road, but if it hadn't been for the professionalism of the Jaselin Bonilla, and here patience in helping to make sure our accommodation's were correct and for the Assistant General Manager correcting the mishaps, I would have checked out. But they were genuinely concerned about our distress. The hotel is located in a good location. But to be respectfully honest it is in need of a complete remodeling. (

Wow the pictures on the internet are quite deceiving ! We were disappointed as we had to move rooms 3 times before everything worked. Staff didn't seem too excited any time we spoke with them as several times had to have the keys reset. The restaurant in the lobby was great.

Dear JoeBroKC, Thank you for the review. Please accept our sincerest apologies about your experience at the Blake Hotel.

The location with the price is EVERYTHING! I was able to get to the streetcar so easily and everything was so close by. The carpet and fixtures are a bit old and show wear. That was a bit disappointing. There was some renovation going on in the lobby so I'm hopeful things will look amazing. Would I stay again? Absolutely. There isn't a better deal in the area.

It is very run down, a full remodel or complete shut down is in order. My room was so dirty, it was unbelievable. Cracks in the walls, peeling around the bathtub/shower inside and outside. Hair and dirt clumps along the floor board and in corners. The makeup mirror in the bathroom was rusted and dirty. The room was really gross. I reported the uncleanliness the same night I arrived to Ryan. He basically told me to call in the AM and speak with housekeeping manager. Instead I went to front desk, the next morning, and spoke to manager, who asked me to send pics to his email, which I did. 6 days later and I still have not heard back from him. 2 nights virtually from hell. I was not offered anything.

Room was filthy (I have pics) hair and dust clumps along bathroom floor board. Cracking paint, peeling sealant around tub/shower. Cracking paint in bedroom. Squeeky noise from vent all night. Hard, old, and squeeky spring matress. I spoke with Ryan who told me to call front desk in AM to speak with housekeeping manager. Instead, i went to ftont desk, in the AM, and spoke to the manager who asked me to send pics to his email, which I did. I have not heard any word back from him and its been 6 days. Not a very good experience, whatsoever.

I have been to this hotel at least 20 times in the last few years, but stopped bc there was a bad batch of employees last year around this time! This was the best experience yet. From my check in with Ryan to all my daily needs with Ms. Kim. They went above and beyond to meet my expectations' & will be the reason that i return again in a few months .Totally convenient area with metered parking out front and free on weekends and after 7. the atmosphere and overall total attitudes of the staff are exceptional and would totally recommend. There is cafe attached to the hotel with great food -- Thanks again Kim and Ryan

User 25/06/2020

Worst guest service ever. Housekeeping do not clean the rooms for days, the staff doesn't communicate with each other and no one knows why the room hasn't been cleaned. Even after complaining nothing gets done. Rude staff, the front desk lady hung up the phone on me. They keep saying first thing in the morning because no one is here and still nothing. I would not recommend this place at all. Save your money and go to a clean hotel where they care about guests.

This hotel is awesome!! Great customer service, rooms are clean staff is awesome also it's in a good part of town . I recommend this place very comfortable feels like home . It's very pet friendly the director of the hotel is the sweetest lady ever and front desk. The view from the hotel room windows is beautiful as well. This is the only hotel out of New Orleans that was decent as in price the deposit was workable and cheap . They have a cafe next door that is part of the hotel with anything you would like from it really great food as well and staff. Pick this place I promise you won't regret it. This place deserves ten stars and an Aplus on buisness bureau!! Also it's safe to go outside without getting harrassed by homeless and they have valet parking. They are really there to help you with anything. Great Service!! I love it here and will be back!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

When we got there the first room smelled like wet mold the second room smelled like weed and the third one had hair everywhere, but we were tired so we just left it alone. The next afternoon at like 3pm we got a knock on the door for our room to be cleaned, why so late I'm. Not sure but ... OMG our housekeeper was SOOOO DRUNK and rude she could barely stand up straight and smelled like beer I just said No thank you. We check out the next day but were booked for 5 more days, NEVER again.

We ran into difficulties with another booking at another location and called the Blake Hotel to see if they could help us in a pinch. This was just as the COVID-19 pandemic was being declared a pandemic. Oz, the manager, was unbelievably understanding and accommodating and managed to find us 4 rooms together on the same floor. Though we originally planned to stay a week, we decided it was more prudent to leave early and, again, the people at this hotel were amazing. Our rooms and the entire hotel were kept very clean. And because of the need for social distancing, we spent most of our time in the hotel instead of walking the French Quarter (bummer, but necessary). The Blake was a godsend.

Easy walk to lost of things Like water front, Pier, French Quarter! Good location. Don't expect to be wowed the rooms they are small and the doors are not sound proof you can hear every noise. The beds are not the comfiest and the air blows right at the head board and travels down to your head. Easy to get a cold this way.

Stayed at the Blake for 4 nights during our recent trip to New Orleans. The hotel is in the business district but very close to the French Quarter and it is on the St. Charles St. streetcar line. Rooms are not very big but are comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. We'd stay again!

suezbelle, Lake Charles, Louisiana 05/03/2020

Stayed 2 nights during Mardi Gras. Room was supposed to be a "view" of Lafayette square. Our window was covered with some sort of tint that you could not see through. Room was very small and had a small bathroom with 1 sink and regulation size tub. Room wreaked of smoke, even though we were supposed to have a non-smoking room. Don't know if this was from someone smoking in it, poor ventilation or both. All I know is, my throat was itchy while I was in the room and when I left, it wasn't. The phone cord did not stay into the receiver on the phone; you had to hold it in to make phone calls..which we had to do to find out where the ice maker was...turns out it's only on odd numbered floors. Weird. Housekeeping was loud in the hallways on their personal conversations on cell phone. We did not alert management to the problems as we were pretty certain during mardi gras the rooms would be full or pickings would be slim. The towels and sheets seemed to be clean enough, but you could just tell the rooms are in dire need of deep clean and updating. Garage parking seemed safe enough. However, because of the parades, valet service was blocked off so we had to haul our luggage down from the garage, wheel it outdoors to the hotel entrance, as it cannot be accessed from within the building that houses the garage...even though they are technically in the same building/block. This was an inconvenience. Keep this in mind if you are visiting during mardi gras at any hotel along parade routes. The biggest benefit to staying at this hotel is the location, during mardi gras. It was convenient for the stands we had tickets to for the hotel, even though one of the nights we stayed the parades were canceled and we were not refunded for the stands tickets (not the hotel's fault-but head's up to anyone considering doing the stands). However, I will not be staying at this hotel again. There are far too many options along the parade route for hotels and stands and next year we will definitely try a different place. For what we paid, it just wasn't worth the problems with the room.

chazc64, Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear Suezbelle, Thank you for the review. We are very sorry to see that your stay did not work out as well as you hoped. Please accept our sincerest apologies about the room smell, as we are a 100% smoke free hotel. Regarding the parking, we were very fortunate to be right on the Mardi Gras parade routes, and also fortunate to have an alternate parking garage right next to the building. Generally, we do have valet parking that keeps your vehicle safe and secure for $39.90 per night plus tax. Please do not hesitate to contact the hotel directly and speak with our management team, as we would like to hear more about your stay. Thank you for staying with us, and have a great day.

This hotel is in a good location and that's where the positive experience ends. It's ok but certainly below what most would expect or want. The beds have thin cheap bedding. The mattresses feel old and the rooms were dirty. It's not a roach motel but it should be near the bottom when shopping for a room.

CGMahoney, Abita Springs, Louisiana 24/02/2020

We are locals who live about 45 minutes north of NOLA, but I wanted our son to experience a night parade downtown from a balcony, so I booked a room at Hotel Blake for the big Thursday night parades. While we were checking in, the front desk clerk told us that all parades were cancelled that night due to high winds. We were so bummed so we decided just to go home since you can't do a lot at night with a 7 year old downtown when there are no parades. Assuming the answer would be 'no', I asked if we could move our reservation to the next night, Friday. They allowed us to do that and also honored our balcony tickets for the following night. The whole experience was great and we will definitely do it again next year. The location for parades was PERFECT and we had great customer service for the whole stay. We ate at the downstairs restaurant the next morning and again experienced wonderful service and really good food. Thanks, Hotel Blake! We will be back!

"Rock n' Roll"

User 12/02/2020

The Blake Hotel was very conveniently located for our purpose of participating in the Rock n' Roll Marathon series....starting line was 300 yards from the front door. The hotel on its own merit is adequate. The room was clean, no complaints there. Our room was on the front of the hotel and as the wind blew all night the cables on the flag poles banged into the poles and made loud noise all night making good sleep elusive. The a/c fan was not loud enough to drown the noise. The staff was very friendly from the valet man to the front desk staff. They did fail to inform me of prohibited parking the night before and the morning of the race resulting in my car being towed....I guess I could have paid the $49 per night valet fee and avoided that, though. I probably wouldn't seek this hotel out again unless it was perfectly located for my specific purpose and my room was not on the front.

"Ok experience, hot & muggy room"

ruthsQ1767TN, Mobile, United States 11/02/2020

We stayed here for 3 nights the last weekend of January. Everyone at the front desk was very nice & polite. Check in/out was very easy but I was very disappointed in the parking situation. If you didn't want to pay a ridiculous amount per night to park with their valet service on top of paying for your room then you had to find a parking garage near by. Luckily I found one 0.5 miles away that was about $12 a day. The room was a little smaller than I expected it to be for the price. The bed was comfortable & the room was clean, but the bathroom could have been cleaned a lot better. The bathroom and/or room needed a ventilation system along with the entire hotel. I realize it was Jan. & cold so the hotel had the heater on, but when you got off the elevator the hall was hot & humid. Our room stayed so hot & muggy that we had to keep the thermostat on 60 just to be comfortable & to keep the fan going to circulate the air. The cafe attached to the hotel had good food & service. They biscuits & gravy were delicious & you got a very large portion. The hotel is in a good location. We were able to walk to the French Quarter & the Smoothie King Center with no issues. If you are unable to walk for long periods of time I recommend taking the street car & fortunately there is one that stops on the corner by the hotel. The next time I have to stay over night in New Orleans I will be staying at a different hotel or Airbnb because the hot & muggy room was so uncomfortable.

Located literally perfectly from all the “must-do's” New Orleans has to offer, it is also staffed and operated as smoothly and efficiently as any 5 star hotel the city has to offer at a fraction of the cost. The front desk staff (Ryan, Zenna, Charlise, Jaselin Jessica and Jeronica,) are pleasant and go above and beyond to ensure your stay is a memorable one. The housekeeping staff (Tamika, Lorraine, Elaine, Jemare) are professional and helpful with any and all requests a guest may have. The fluid and professional environment is surely the result of a most effective and attentive management team (Chaz, Carlos, Ryan, Precious) who see to it that each and every guest is treated like a 5 star customer. All said and done The Blake Hotel is a top notch, professional, efficient, and comfortable gem among a large playing field. They have certainly earned my recommendation and I hope you will choose The Blake for your business or pleasure travels.

Great location. 10 minute walk from the French Quarter and street car picks up from the corner. There is a fridge and microwave in the room which is convenient. One front desk was very friendly, the rest were not. The bathtub/shower had many different types of hair left in it. I didn't receive fresh towels every day. The toilet ran and the tub was backed up. The hotel was old but nice.

So this is supposed to be a “Premier Collection” hotel. I have stayed in many regular $69 Best Western hotels that were cleaner and had better service than this hotel. The entire hotel is filthy dirty. The furniture in the room (I stayed in a Queen suite) was dirty. The mattress was lumpy and hard. The elevator malfunctioned while we were in it and we got stuck inside it for a while. Valet parking was slow, the desk staff were unfriendly. I can understand due to the type and location of this hotel that they do not have free breakfast like most all other Best Western hotels, but they don't even have coffee! What hotel does not even provide coffee! I was told to use the nasty single serve pot in the room, go to the pay restaurant adjacent to the hotel, or walk to Starbucks. The only reason I give them two stars instead of one is the location.

This hotel sounds lovely. And I have no idea how it has a four star rating. It is literally one of the skankiest places I have ever been. Everything was worn and dirty. My room came complete with nail clippings and toilet paper on the floor. The staff was lovely in accommodating my special request to actually clean the room. That said there was a deep layer of filth that no cleaning can truly fix. Stay away.

The hotel was much nicer than another I stayed in prior to our cruise. The location was central and Ryan at the front desk was fantastic. The room was large, and the hotel was location near Canal Street and the French quarter. Great location.

TACBAC, Alva, Florida 24/01/2020

A decent hotel at a reasonable price close enough to walk to the action of the French Quarter. The front desk staff was helpful, although the young lady who we assumed was training, should not chew gum and should try smiling and assisting the public with a little more enthusiasm. Housekeeping was adequate, the bathroom could use a deep cleaning, it appears no one ever looks behind the door. The room was quiet even though it was close to the elevator.

The rooms were clean for the most part. There was a footprint on the headboard, but other than that everything was clean.. Friendly staff, both at the front desk and in the attached cafe.. The only issue is the elevator is very slow and makes noises. It makes it feel unsafe.

A lovely old fashioned hotel with lots of charm. It makes a nice change from the plain, soul less hotels seen everywhere. The receptionist Kelly Forest was especially friendly even at the ungodly hour of the morning that we had to leave. The bed was huge, and the accessible room We used was excellent. No problems there at all. We visit New Orleans quite often, and will certainly come back to The Blake.

One of the worst hotels I have been in. Employees are not very helpful for anything. Check in was suppose to be 4, had to wait for a room to be cleaned, but was not very clean. Booked for 3 days, after 2nd day our entry card would not work. They never told us that after 48 hours you have to get a new one. No one knows how to smile. All very rude. Would not recommend to any person let alone a dog!!!

The location of the hotel is great and if you are traveling solo for business and the price is right, go for it. Otherwise, stay away. The customer service is lousy to the point of rude and the rooms are small and without basic amenities including cups for the bathroom or pillows that weren't boosted from a low rent airline. It won't be in the rotation for the future.

Had a wonderful visit with my son for the football game , the hotel was one way down straight to the super dome . So that was very nice .the rooms where ok the noise outside was the only problem , The staff where very friendly including a young man mr Andre who helped us find our room and help us with our luggage on our last day. The cafe was also good but a little to pricy . If we ever have to come back the Blake will be the place

We stayed here for the LHSAA High School Football Championship weekend- Dec. 13-15, 2019. Our group consisted of about 25 people, all family and friends. The Blake employees made our check-in extremely easy. They were all nice and friendly, especially Zanna... she was very pregnant and glowing and had the best attitude ever. She was nice and helpful whenever we needed her assistance. The entire staff treated us with the utmost respect making our check-in quick, simple and easy. Management(Liz) was over the top from giving us the best deal, to making sure everything was on point upon our arrival. I look forward to staying at the Blake whenever I return to New Orleans, Louisiana.

llittle, Alamogordo, New Mexico 18/12/2019

as always i start out this is not a 5 star hotel, but i like everything about it. this is my second year in a row that i have stayed here, ask for and even was able to get the same room i had last year. it's located right on the st charles streetcar line, and only 5 blocks from canal street and the frence quarter. there is a nice big super rouses market 2 blocks away at 701 barrone, and i think all rooms have refriges and microwaves. it is an older building, but nicely upsated, and the rooms are very nice, and mine was quite large. wifi worked great, staff friendly and helpful. the reesturant looks nice, but i have never eaten there so can't say much else. if you pick the right time to stay as i did , the rates are very resonable. as with all downtown nola hotels there is a hefty fee for overnight parking.

The location of this hotel is excellent for business in the CBD and/or visiting the Superdome or WWII museum. The st staff was very friendly. I was most impressed that the GM seemed to always be in the lobby checking on things or helping guests. The lobby is very nicely appointed. My room was fine, bed comfortable. I wasn't expecting much because of the low price, but was very pleasantly surprised. Also, I must recognize the staff. Every Time I saw a staff member in the hall or elevator, they greeted me and were very friendly. Their customer service training is spot-on.

During a recent overnight stay to attend a New Orleans Saints home football game, we stayed at this older, but pretty well-kept hotel. Although one of the two elevators was out of service (causing some lengthy waits), the room and failities were all in good working order. The front desk staff (Zana?) was very friendly and courteous. Parking is a problem (there is none). You must park in one of the costly parking lots several blocks from the hotel. For the price and location, this was a very good choice.

The hotel is very convenient if you are traveling between Bourbon Street, sights, good food and the football stadium. The staff is very nice and helpful.

This QUIET hotel near the court district is next to a park and within walking distance of museums, great food and wine. This is not the boozy party of the French Quarter. It is a great deal for a mid-range pocket that has friendly staff and nice rooms. I would recommend for families and couples. The restaurant is good and the view is too. This isn't a new hotel so the water will take a bit to warm and the elevator isn't on jets, but it has an old elegance feel even though it isn't historic. So enjoy the super high ceilings in the rooms and pretend you own the joint.

We really enjoyed the topnotch desk and valet staff service. The hotel exterior and interior common spaces were bright and luxurious, well kept and clean. The location is ideal for easy walkability to all area attractions. The housekeeping service was a bit sub-par, with inconsistent attention to detail (trash left in cans, not replenishing coffee service, etc.) And the mattress on the bed was not comfortable at all. With a few simple tweaks this hotel could become a travel favorite in our book!

I found this hotel on agoda.com and thought it could NEVER be such a steal! My fiancé and myself needed a hotel near the Smoothie King Center for the Lakers VS. Pelicans game this week. When we arrived we got welcomed by Zana who was fun, very sweet and suggested some places to grab a bite to eat. It was a little busy but she was sure to let us know she would be right with us with a big smile! The atmosphere was friendly, rooms are super clean and you CANT beat the location! Grabbed some fresh lime water while we had a very short wait, Zana checked us in without hassle and has a great sense of humor to go with her bubbly personality. It's really great when people enjoy their job, it truly made us feel right at home visiting New Orleans for the first time from Phoenix! I can't wait to explore the city, Blake Hotel definitely will be seeing me AGAIN! I will recommended this hotel to any of my friends or colleagues. Thank you for the great customer service Zaan!

Maria C, Bayonne, New Jersey 13/11/2019

We arrived later than check in time and the room was not ready. We noticed that multiple groups of people experienced the same thing. When we get to room, it was a lot smaller than the pictures online depict. The toilet was extremely low to the floor which is rough for anyone with knee problems. There is a full length mirror in the inside of the bathroom door, very weird placement when considering the toilet is facing the mirror. The bathroom is also extremely small. In addition, when coming back from our walk we come to find the cleaning crew cleaned our room but left our door open. This of course freaked us out. When we called the front desk, we were told that the cleaning crew came by an hour and half prior which means our room was left open that long.

Dear Maria C, Thank you for the review. We are very sorry that your experience at the Blake Hotel was not up to your expectations.

The service at this hotel was amazing. The night audit is amazing. Mr. Kelly, you made our trip a joy and I love your personality and overall hospitality. I wish I could remember the everyone we encountered at the hotel but I can't. Just know if you want to feel the love this hotel is it. Yes it does need a renovation but I'd take good service over amenities and upgrades.

We were a family group of 6 with 4 staying at the Blake. All six enjoyed the breakfasts together and the 4 of us that stayed at the Blake were happy with it. The french Quarter is 3 blocks away and an easy walk. The hotel's restaurant was very good with a wide selection of items for all the meals. Staff was helpful at all times and enhanced our 8 day vacation.

This is our second visit to NOLA on Halloween and of course the French Quarter was a blast but the hospitality from the front desk , especially Kelly Forest, was exceptional.

My wedding party and family stayed at the Blake Hotel for my wedding weekend. They offered a courtesy block for my group, and everything went very smoothly from start to finish. They were quick to answer any questions or resolve any issues. This hotel is in a great location and the rooms were a good size. The hotel is older & decorated in a little old-fashioned manner, but it's still nice. I would stay here again & would recommend this as a great room-block location for events.

Front desk did not bring us sheets and towels when we called for them. They made us go downstairs to get them. We called for them because no one cleaned our room during the 3 nights we were there. There were also stains on some of the sheets and the water took 10 minutes to get hot in the shower. The location was good and we felt safe. Horrible service

The Blake Hotel is the perfect location for us because we like to walk to the WWII Museum, to the French Quarter, and to the river. Everything is easy to get to. It's a fairly quiet location. Our king-bed room was small but well laid out.

Maurine M, Vienna, Austria 27/10/2019

Located in the heart of the business district, our stay was marred by non-servicing of our room on a Sunday, and long waits for answering calls to guest services. At 6:30 PM the room was still not made up. Very poor showing - and the hotel is in need of renovation. The room we had was nice and big, but the bathroom was very small. The curtains were hanging off the rail and the TV froze upon usage. However the engineer did fix both. Eventually housekeeping showed up after an in-person talk with the front desk. There are plenty of other very nice hotels in this city - I would not recommend this one.

Stayed at The Blake Hotel at 500 St Charles St. It intersects with Poyradus St with Harrahs Casino just 4 blocks away. The federal building is just 1 block away. Since the price was so affordable I was leary of the condition. I was greeted by Vanessa when checking in who quickly processed my 4 night stay and provided me some information on the area surroundings. The rooms are spacious,clean and have a microwave, coffee pot, and refrigerator that is really cold. Shannon in housekeeping did a fantastic job in keeping our room clean. The attached Cafe at the Square serves a great meal. Carlos, the manager, runs a fantastic hotel.

The hotel was in a great location to everything. It is a quiet place to stay after hanging on Bourbon Street; with a nice restaurant and good food. The room was clean and spacious.

Overall, great hotel.

Your customer service will depend on the color of your skin. We witness this multiple times every time we were waiting on valet to bring the car. At one point we asked if they would recommend a place to dine and was told “I wouldn't be able to tell ya!” Yet, everyone who matched their skin color they would get a friendly welcome, WiFi password, how to score free parking and not get caught. Not to mentioned offered to other guests to suggest local place to eat.

We picked this hotel because it is a short drive to the cruise terminal from the hotel. There is a restaurant in the hotel, however, it is a separate entity from the hotel. The area is walkable and has the old New Orleans charm. The down town trolley runs by the hotel.

Take photos down that does not reflect the image of hotel, provide water bottles and offer plastic ware in rooms when needed restaurant was the best part great food and great staff, need to let guest know that when booking you take partial payment and the rest at the time of check in

chazc64, Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear Vylakong, Thank you for the review. We sincerely apologize that the hotel did not live up to your expectations from the visual appearance to the amenities. The Blake Hotel takes the first night's room and tax as a deposit, and then the remaining balance at the time of check in. We are sorry if there was any miscommunication about our deposit policy when you made the reservation, but the policy is available to see online. Thank you for staying with us, and have a great day. Thank you, Ryan McGuire - Assistant General Manager

Took my mother and her sisters on a family "Girls Trip" this past weekend. What a wonderful time we had. Great Location.. walking distance from most attractions. Rooms were beautiful. Clean with a great view. The Hotel staff were all amazing. Zania and Chris checked us in and they were awesome. They made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We felt like we were staying with family !! Chaz assisted us the next day, very professional and helpful ! Anthony Williams and Tina Lacour assisted us and every Hotel should envy you for the staff you have !! We will be staying at the Blake every year for our "Girls Trip" Thanks guys !!!

User 28/08/2019

This hotel has a great location. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. However, parking is very expensive and there is no breakfast provided with the room. We felt that for a Best Western, breakfast should have been included. The room was very nicely decorated and the bathroom was very nice. However, the exterior of the hotel is looking a bit dated. But for this price point, you can not beat this hotel for New Orleans. I am sure we will be back.

Dear Judy M, Thank you for your review. We are very glad that you overall enjoyed your stay!

Mr. Kelly at the desk is a consummate professional. He made my stay exceptional, not many actually care these days, but he obviously does; as he makes you feel like your the only one staying there. Truly exceptional service. I would stay again because of him. The hotel is comfortable and close to everything.

They are trying —caring staff for sure—but not near hitting mark of a premier collection hotel. Bed was very saggy in middle, air conditioning never caught up until wee hours of morning ( I know, it's New Orleans, but still don't expect it to be humid in 9th floor premier hotel room!).

PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT!!! That's how I'd describe our stay at The Blake. Everything was perfect...from the staff (front desk, valet people, the diner staff, all the way up to the manager and assistant manager). We could not have asked for anything better. The room was incredible, the location was amazing, the diner downstairs was DELICIOUS! It was just an incredible stay and a place that we will be going back to.

MacAttack720, Perth, Australia 13/08/2019

Good location away from all the noise, everything you need. Only BW that I stayed in two weeks which didnt supply breakfast. Also needed to pay for parking @ $35 per day. Took issue however when we found out the credit card had been charged twice. Apparently a holding bond returned when you depart... no need for this as they have credit details and could charge if damage if needed. This caused issues as I had been traveling using card for weeks and just about used up credit, withholding a second amount reduced my credit limit. Funds then not released till a week later "why".

Dear MacAttack720 Thank you for taking a moment to review your stay; our location is hard to beat with city's best dinning,attractions and nightlife just steps from our front door!

kimhK2036VS, Houston, Texas 04/08/2019

What can I say about this hotel that is positive? The evening supervisor (pregnant female) is very nice and friendly. Oh and it's in a decent area. That's it... that's all. The furniture needs updating, the crab cakes are HORRIBLE! The billing system is a joke, my friend didn't add me to the reservation and her flight was delayed. I was left sitting the lobby because they wouldn't change it from her name to mine or allow me to check in. A complete disaster!! Do NOT stay at this privately owned hotel because they make up the rules as they go! Ryan the GM went against everything he assured my friend he would so when they spoke on the phone and felt that dinner vouchers compensated her for her inconvenience.

I had a wonderful 4 night stay in this hotel. This is an older, but clean hotel. Everyone from the front desk, housekeeping, the bar and the kitchen chefs were all kind, helpful, and welcoming. I had the best bread pudding I have EVER had (ask for extra bourbon sauce). There is a trolley service close by, cab or LYFT service is $6-8.00. Rouse's grocery store is close by as well as a CVS. Daisy Mae's Southern Restaurant is close by too. A Starbucks and Smoothie King is across the street. The food in the hotel restaurant was good. I enjoyed breakfast, the Crab Salad and wish I had brought a pan of the bread pudding home. My plan is to always stay at the Blake; it felt like “home”.

I stayed at the Blake Hotel for Essence Music Festival; and I have to say that they went above and beyond with the level of customer service. Employees were very attentive to me and I appreciated the service. I would recommend this hotel because it's in the perfect location- the streetcar and bus stop is close to the hotel. Also, it's in walking distance to the Superdome, Bourbon Street, and the Convention Center. However, the rate was steep for a Best Western Hotel, otherwise I would consider it again.

Barry L, Mesquite, United States 17/07/2019

My wife and I stayed at the Blake and found the people to be cheerful and very helpful. The hotel was located in a great spot to see everything we wanted to see. The trolley had a stop right by the hotel, we wanted to travel like locals, so we got around just fine without the use of a vehicle. While we were there the city experienced a huge rain storm that flooded the entire city. Because the Blake is on some of the highest ground in the city it experienced only minor flooding and the staff handled the situation with perfection. They made what could have been a serious problem into a minor inconvenience. Kudos to them. I recommend the Blake highly, staying there will enhance your visit.

My friend and I was visiting New Orleans during our conference. We stayed at the Blake Hotel. I was very impressed with the customer service and the hotel lobby. The lobby was very relaxing and a great place to sit and talk as you watch the city and local walkers past by. The lobby has many windows for viewing. And was told that the hotel is Great for viewing the Madi Gras parade. The hotel has a restaurant that has delicious food. The Starbucks is just across the street. A big plus for me. The bedrooms are small in size but neat and clean. Our bedroom had an spectular view. I would stay again at this hotel and would recommend it to others. Suggestion for improvement... Update elevators and Draperies in bedroom.

located on the corner of poydras and saint charles, minutes away from the french quarter and convention center. wonderful experience, great service, really good restaurant on the premises with a full bar.

"Great Customer Service and Location, TERRIBLE HOTEL"

tinker w, Tomah WI 10/07/2019

The location and customer service is fantastic. Every awesome thing about NOLA is within a 10-minute walk from the hotel. The front desk staff is incredibly competent and helpful. Everything else...TERRIBLE. The AC in our room leaked every day and had to be cleaned out daily by maintenance staff. No one brought us towels, took out our trash or touched our room without us calling the front desk. When we checked in, our fridge was full of old food from the previous customer. The ice machine on our floor didn't work and I could go on. With all of the great hotels here in NOLA, you probably deserve better. Enjoy your NOLA experience somewhere else. We were disappointed. This was my anniversary and my wife's birthday. We had a blast and enjoyed every moment until we returned to our hotel daily.

We booked a room last minute for 4th of July weekend and this place was great! Not only was the hotel clean but the staff were phenomenal. We were greeted by Jamilla and Ryan at the checking desk and they greeted us wonderfully. They were completely respectful and so welcoming. They answered all the questions we had and made the process so smooth for us. We were checked out the next day by Kenny who also was such a fun spirit with us, I forgot something in my room and returned and he was so kind and allowed me to get the belongings I forgot. I would absolutely come back just because of the great staff. The rooms were spotless as well. Great place for a great price!

I have stayed in this Hotel 5 times so far and it's my first time writing a review. I arrived very early and was allowed to check-in waaaay earlier that I was supposed to. Kelly Forest at the front desk was super professional and helped me out. The hotel is very clean and in convenient location. You can use their valet service or park at the parking garage across the street. Will definitely come back again (for the 6th time).

We loved staying at The Blake on our recent visit to NOLA. The front desk staff was warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful. Jamila went the extra mile everytime- giving us a room with a park and city view on a high floor to checking in our bags since we arrived early to giving us a late check out. She asked us if we were comfortable and needed any help getting around. She was the best! The housekeeping staff made sure we had extra regular coffee and enough toiletries throughout our stay. The elevators to the 11th floor were prompt. We loved the food at the restaurant downstairs!! Also the hotel is conveniently located just outside but close enough to the French Quarter at $5/6/7 Lyft ride away. Starbucks across the street. The Blake felt like a second home after our stay there.

zombieflu, Nashville, Tennessee 23/06/2019

So the location of the hotel was perfect! Close to everything and the valet was great! The room was not the cleanest but it was still okay. Now to the front desk, I'm used to above average service at best westerns especially a premier. Well the girl working the front was not the nicest and she also got busted making faces behind my back (by my hubs, who was out side) after I questioned the price of water and if it was complimentary. The front desk staff usually had a group of people hanging out and cutting up with them and could have cared less if you came in or not. The Resturaunt attached had good food but the waitress were sorta snippy and in a bad mood cause someone didn't show up. I work with the public I get it but you don't show it! I would not stay here again just because of the customer service. We have stayed in tons of best westerns and I guess I'm just spoiled because the customer service is always above and beyond.

chazc64, Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear Zombieflu, Thank you very much for your review. First off, please accept our most sincere apologies in regards to your customer service. Reading this review is extremely alarming to me as a manager that one of our employees would express the actions that you described. I really would appreciate it if you could call the hotel and speak with myself, or our co-Assistant General Manager, Ryan, and give us more detail about our front desk staff. I hope after speaking with one of us, we can right the ship and get another chance to make it right for you. I am glad you liked the location of the hotel, as we are walking distance to practically everything. Have a great day. Thank you, Chaz Cavignac - Assistant General Manager

"Was expecting more"

Faster Horses F, Gibraltar 17/06/2019

I was definitely expecting more from this hotel. The lobby was nice and the cafe attached was nice, but the rooms fell short. They were slightly dingy and outdated. I understand the hotel is historical, but it's like they only updated the lobby area. They should put some more focus on the rooms. The bed was super hard, the standing lamp was super cheap, the curtains were broken, there was a giant dirt pile under the standing lamp. It wasn't terrible, but like I said, my expectation were not met. The parking cost more than the parking lot on the street. It was actually cheaper to get a parking ticket than to pay for a day of parking at the hotel.

Dear Faster Horses, Thank you for taking the time out to write us a review about your hotel stay. I do want to apologize that we as a hotel fell short of your expectations. In regards to the out dating of the rooms, the super hard bed, broken curtains, and the giant dirt pile in your room. In no way shape or form is the acceptable at the Blake Hotel. Again I want to extend my sincerest apology. I hope that in the future when you visit New Orleans again you can come back and stay with us.

The premises are very well taken care of, the room was amazing! I left my night robe hanging on the bathroom door when we left, after a few tries the Manager Carlos Toledo, called me back assisted me with a resolution. I was very pleasantly surprised he took it upon himself to make things right. No, I did not get my rob back but he asked me to send him the link where I ordered my rob, and he will give us a discount on our next visit to NOLA. Hope to visit soon and I will definitely stay at the Blake!! I definitely recommend this hotel, we were there for a wedding, we visited other rooms around FQ, and this Hotel stands up to all of the rest, hands down.

The staff, service & Restautant was great, but the carpet in our room (number 1001) was filthy. We asked the housekeeper to vacuum it, which she did, but it didn't help.

The Blake hotel is a nice hotel, with friendly staff, but the best part of my stay was dining in the hotel restaurant. I know people would say you don't go to NO and eat at a hotel restaurant but Chef Ne'Cole has changed my mind about that. Not only was her food absolutely delicious, her personality was as well. If you have not eaten her food you are missing out. I hear her bread pudding is fabulous, hate I missed that, but her take on shrimp and grits, andouille eggs Benedict and crab cake Benedict were amazing. Looking forward to having a meal again from her. Thank you Chef Ne'Cole for an awesome dining experience.

Climber50295327943, Saint Louis, Missouri 05/06/2019

Basic hotel, nothing special. Restaurant does not open early for breakfast and no coffee in lobby. Also, if they say room has "no view" this means no window so confirm this on check-in if you have any issues with claustrophobia. Check the extra blankets and linens for cleanliness upon entering although this is a recommendation at any hotel not just this one. I ranked it as average because bed was comfortable/clean, shower had ample hot water, and security personnel watched me as I stepped out the front of the hotel for a cigarette at 5 am. This would not be my first choice hotel when returning on business to NOLA; however, if you need a place for basic amenities then this wouldn't be the worst.

Came to NOLA for my first time. The Blake told us we were getting an upgrade. I was very upset. The room was very dated. It had a strong mildew smell. The furniture was stained, curtains had an odor, shower curtain stained, carpet in hallways are dirty. AC is very loud. We killed a bug(roach) in our room. I was very uncomfortable returning to my room each night.

My husband and I stayed at the Blake . What I can say about the hotel is that it's very old,the elevator takes forever and the 10th floor hallway was very hot. As for the staff they where great !front desk was a little rude but I understand they where busy at the moment .There was a young man andreas who was very respectful every time we saw him. We asked him for towels and he brought them right away . My housekeeper Shannon was outstanding she had our room fresh every time we came back (husbands a pig ) but over all I would come back for sure

Great location. Great price. I had Issues with my room which could've been handled more efficiently.

The staff took too long to give me a room switch. They weren't at full occupancy. By the third day, it was great (in the new room), but i checked out on the 5th.

We stayed 3 nights and 4 days and all we could smell as we entered the elevator and the hallways was weed. The staff was friendly, the restaurant is good with decent prices. We had to track down our room service to get replacement towels and trash can liners. She seemed higher than a kite!! The bathroom had rusted fixtures and the tub had black stuff around the edges. Overall it was an okay stay. We just had the munchies afterwards.

I'd never been to New Orleans before and when I travel, I normally stay at a Marriott or Hilton brand as there's familiarity and I know what I'm getting. I must say I'm glad I took a chance(thanks Priceline). The service was great. Keith (great guy) gave me a spectacular/perfect room (I'm secretly hoping to get the same room on my next visit) in the corner on the 11th floor - room 1102 (I think). It had a great view of Jackson Square, perfect location. 10 minute walk to Bourbon St, 12 minutes to the House of Blues - and I walk slow. Very quiet hotel with a comfortable bed and a great assortment of cable channels. I didn't visit the restaurant that was on the ground floor as there were many restaurants and eateries on our travels. I will definitely be back.

Great place to be for the parades as it along one of the routes.The safe in our room did not work.Also some of the plugs were loose and did not work.The exercise room has some equipment that didn't work,there was nothing there to wipe the equipment down after working out and the complimetary fruit was old and getting shriveled.The employees at the desk were not very helpful or friendly.We realized that it was a busy time but that is no excuse for not giving good customer service.The manager Chaz was friendly and helpful.When we checked out the bill was confusing and Carlos was not very helpful in resolving it.

I loved our trip here to New Orleans thanks to the Blake Hotel. I booked a trip with about 100 guests and their staff was ever so helpful all along the way. With this many people, I thought this trip might have been a nightmare, but the Blake employees made this trip perfect. The hotel is well within walking distance to anywhere you need to be. Our rooms were incredibly spacious and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Nice Hotel. Only downside was that beds were not very comfortable. No fluffy pillows, no comforter at all- nothing to sink into after a long day of touring or dancing! Otherwise, great prices even during festivals.

Dear Scenic43464699817, We are elated to know that you loved our hotel and that you stayed with us for a good price. I do apologize for the uncomfortable beds and pillows in your room.

The location is the greatest thing about this hotel. I also loved the restaurant there. However, the room was not that spacious and the bed wasn't that comfy. The bathroom was very small. I also wished mirrors were in the room and not just the bathroom. I probably wouldn't make this as my first choice to stay here.

I stayed at the Blake Hotel for one night during Jazz Fest. The hotel is centrally located in downtown New Orleans. About 1.5 mile walk to the French Quarter.

The hotel in my. Opinion was not to Best Western Standards they had way too much furniture in the room the decor was very dated there was a strong musty smell probably due to the amount of condensation dripping down the inside of the windows and to top it all off they had closed the restaurant to the public and the hotel guests without any notice and opened it for a private party however they did sell some snacks at the registration desk if you were stupid enough to pay $8.00 for a .34 cent cup of noodles yes you read that right eight dollars I'm a diamond select member I stay at BW hotels more than I stay at home after that stay I have been thinking about switching hotels

Zana (happy belated birthday) and Jamila (blessings to your new addition) were AMAZING. Nearly everything in the area (French Quarter) was sold out, and I had to adjust a few arrangements. Zana and Jamila went above and beyond, which was GREATLY appreciated. The property is in THE perfect location. The room was fine (maybe 3.5 stars) for what I needed. I wasn't expecting luxury or high end, but UNDERSTAND SOMETHING TRAVELERS: THERE ARE NO 4-5 star PROPERTY OUT THERE FOR LESS THAN $200+ PER NIGHT.......ZERO! Either way the service outweighed this properties short comings. Thanks ladies!

The location is great if you want to be away from the French Quarter but close enough to walk. It's about 1/2 a mile from all the touristy stuff. A few of the people at the front desk are rude, but we had an enjoyable visit for the most part. Be prepared to pay for valet parking.

Combining conference with fun visit and found the Blake and staff a great choice. Close enough to canal street and good food options. Went for early run from the hotel every morning and felt safe and easy distance to jog to riverfront and cafe summons. . Desk receptionist were awesome ! Xanax went out of her way to be a great and fun host. Cafe adjoining the lobby was a good choose for breakfast late dinner and casual glass of wine. Try mothers just around the corner for breakfast YUM ! Room was clean and comfortable. Good choice ! Good neighborhood.

There was no hot water all afternoon and evening. The front desk said maintenance would be in in the morning to look at it. No other rooms available with hot water or other accommodations offered. Walls are very thin. You can hear doors slamming and hotel staff in the hallways with their walkie talkies blaring.

Dear Traveler, I just want to start off by saying that I am extremely sorry and disappointed to hear about the experience you had throughout your stay.

My girlfriends and I have been coming to New Orleans for the French Quarter Festival for several years now. We decided to try a new hotel and have found The Blake to be it! The check in process was a little slow, but they explained they were training a new person. We arrived from the airport at 10 AM and were allowed an early check-in. Normal check in time is 4 PM. We were able to put our luggage in the room and head to the festival. The room was neat and tidy, bathroom was clean, as were the sheets. The safe worked just fine to store our valuables, tablets, etc. The view from our seventh floor window was of a park which was quite nice! The streetcars pass in front of the hotel and the stop is very convenient. However, the Quarter was easily within walking distance. The restaurant in the hotel served some pretty tasty beverages! I loved the Who Dat tini...vodka, kaluha, and cinnamon. Breakfast was amazing! My favorite was the chicken and waffles but the shrimp and grits were also excellent! The staff was super nice, especially Kelly Forrest and Keith Williams. They were very friendly, helpful, and genuinely concerned about our stay. The two men went above and beyond. They wanted to make it our best stay and they definitely succeeded! We will be back next year.

My family and I stayed at the Blake hotel primiraly due to the location to all the attractions. Inital expereince was awesome. However, there was hair on the sheets and the towels. The faucet handle was falling apart and difficult to operate. We requested a late checkout due to a few planned actractions the following morning. When we returned to the room to checkout, we realized our luggage was riffled through, and the money we had in the safe was stollen. Do not use their safe!

I am going to be honest, I was lure by the name, considering the price, I though that I was going to be surrender by a cozy hotel boutique like,in the middle of Nola, Oh boy, I was wrong!!! The best about that hotel is the location. Other than that, the rooms are very old, i(t does not mean anything if they will keep them in good shape.) The front door didn't work, the faucet in the bathtub and in the sink were about to come off, the bed was making a horrible noise and the sheets had stains. The best? our housekeeper, very friendly, she was the only one that will acknowledge us. Honestly, first and last. Will never stay in a BW Hotel.

"Close to French Quarter, Good Restaurant & Front desk service but unfortunately Housekeeping and Maintenance Issues"

2
Laurie W, Reisterstown, United States 12/04/2019

The location was ideal! Close to the Convention Center and Close to the French Quarter. Directly on a streetcar line. The restaurant in the hotel was very good - I'd recommend the Baked Mac & Cheese, Soups and Salads and the Bread Pudding was very good and they had very nice breakfasts. I also had good wifi reception from my room to work on my tablet and my laptop. The front desk was very responsive to our issues and they all got resolved however we had numerous housekeeping and maintenance issues: 1) Bloody fingerprint on the door frame to our bathroom when we checked in that had to be cleaned 2) Room Safe had to be reset by maintenance to work 3) Dripping leak from our ceiling (HVAC condensate) that maintenance had to come out two times to fix correctly 4) Safe too small for a laptop so had to have the front desk lock up my computer Had a nice quiet dark room, however, the view was of a brick wall. Our friends had a room down the hall with a nice view but had extremely loud neighbors that had drunken screaming cursing bouts nightly at 2am.

"The best thing..."

1
User 08/04/2019

The best thing about this hotel is the location. For what we paid for this hotel, i did not expect the service and rooms that we got to be so luckluster. A couple of things went wrong. First we were given a room that was filthy. The bathtub had someone's hair in it, the toilet seat look like a toddler had trouble finding its target, and the bedsheets were stained. When we told the front desk they had no problem changing the room. However, we were sent to a room 3 levels above our original that had windows that faced a brick wall so there was no lighting besides the little desk lamp. The room had a weird odor and we were literally next to the ice machine—the only room near a constantly used ice machine! There was no real ventilation so every shower added a dampness to the weird smell already in the room. Then, the hotel charged the wrong card for my stay. When i booked, I said to charge everything to my credit after reserving the room with my debit card. They charged majority of the stay on my credit but for some reason charged my debit for final charges at check out. Since i didn't get a receipt at check out, i was unable to correct the attendant. This place is great for last minute trips with no real expectations besides sleep and location—avoid if possible.

"Deceiving"

Jet14185826430, Lafayette, Louisiana 08/04/2019

When booking this hotel, the photos are very deceiving. So deceiving, they arent even photos of the actual hotel! There is no court yard area and the photos of the rooms are not accurate! For a small fortune we had to pay to get what we thought we were getting we were left flabbergasted at what we got. The rooms were small and dated and dont even get me started about cleanliness. The rooms were filthy. Sheets hadn't been Changed. The room was falling apart. Stains on the ceiling. A/C barely worked in the room and didnt work at all in the hall way. Bugs in the bathroom. Black mold everywhere. Getting the front desk to bring clean sheets and pillows was a small fight as we had to call down almost every 30 mins for 2 hours to get them to finally come up. When these issues were brought up to the girl at the front desk and Chaz the general manager, they had nothing to say other than "Oh okay". When requested that we get a printed out bill for our records we told No that the company we booked through would provide an emailed copy. When we asked very nicely for one from them as well we were still told no that legally they couldnt provide us with one. Was also not pleased when at check in we were told the card on file for incidentals (we paid in full for the room prior) would not be charged unless the room had issues after we left due to issues of fees not being returned to the card if there were no issues was charged right as she was telling us that. When we called the hotel asking about it we were told to wait 10 business days if there were no issues.

danachorvat73, Spring Hill, Florida 04/04/2019

Where to start. This hotel is absolutely disgusting. The housekeeping staff should be terminated, and management for allowing this hotel to be so dirty. Housekeeping does not change the sheets, doesn't even have them on their cart. On the elevator one housekeeper had colorful wigs and shirts that she found in a room, and stated that now she doesn't have to buy any wigs for Mardi Gras. I guess turning the items into lost and found, or try to contact the owner was a ridiculous idea. The carpet is disgusting, the elevators are slow and dirty. Front desk staff is ok at best. Valet is $46 a day and take FOREVER to get your car. I typically would never stay in a hotel like this, but it was for a time share promotion. Believe the negative reviews on here and go somewhere else.

Annoying film on windows that blurred cityscape views from our 8th floor room. Location pretty convenient to warehouse district, convention center, Lafayette park, cruise terminal and only a few blocks to the French Quarter.

The food in the restaurant was more than great and the front desk attendants, Keith and Kelly, gave me life!!!! They really made my time at the hotel enjoyable. I definitely recommend this place.

Hotel was nice and clean and the staff was somewhat friendly . It was definitely worth the price of the room and would stay there again on another trip. The location of the hotel was in a very good spot as we were able to visit the world war two museum as it was in walking distance and also in walking distance of Bourbon Street and the French quarter . The hotel sits on St. Charles Avenue and is just a block away from Canal Street which is one of the main streets in New Orleans it seems that just about anything you would need to do with the New Orleans is within walking distance. It was very easy to get an Uber ride if we needed one to go outside the city in the area outside the hotel was also kept nice and clean. The rooms did provide a refrigerator and a microwave in the restaurant down below we did not visit but seemed to be very clean and nice. The hotel did provide a computer and printer and I was able to print off a fishing license at the hotel which was also very convenient

The location of the hotel was great for our two day stay as we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The price for the stay was affordable. Be aware there is parking but you have to pay daily for.

The room was good for the price. We had a problem with housekeeping not servicing the room once and the bed was not to standard for hotel chains, I found it uncomfortable. However, the room we had was spacious for the price.

Hotel is in business district, just a couple blocks from french quarter. Walking distance to many places 8ncluding some really great restaurants. Room was very small, and bed was way too firm for my liking. They do make good use of the space in the room however, and it was kept clean. There is a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and in room safe. Doors on rooms tend to slam shut. Valet is expensive but so is parking anywhere in NOLA. There is a self park garage in building next door for about $15 less per day than valet.

We had a great time, as always, but The Blake Hotel was a major part of our satisfaction. The hotel was very accommodating, especially since we were traveling with our 2 and 4 year old sons. It's very clean, and the rooms are super nice. Ms. Elaine is AMAZING and super friendly and helpful. Not only that, the price was super awesome. The location is great in that you can walk just about anywhere, and the streetcar stops right in front of the hotel. We will definitely return.

Came in for a time sharing preview at The Marquee Preview center and Mardi Gras parades were taking place right in front of the hotel. I had everything we needed in walking distance. The Café at the Square that adjoins to the hotel had great food, coffee, and a bar. When I check-in and check-out Zana and Keith provided outstanding customer. I definitely will highly recommend Blake hotel to family and friends.

User 06/03/2019

I booked the Blake last minute for the Sunday before Mardi Gras & had 3 others staying in my room. Also wanted to note that they didn't do valet during Mardi Gras due to being on the parade routes, which meant we had to lug our stuff several blocks. We were attending the day parades & check in wasn't until 4. I show up to hotel around 3:25 after the skies opened up & we were caught in a torrential downpour. I was carrying my luggage, bags of stuff caught in the parade, & a large cooler. I'm completely soaked from the storm & am walking with my aunt. They had several security gaurds at the entrance of hotel. I completely understand with the madness of Mardi Gras that this is necessary to a certain extent. But they wouldn't allow ANYONE into the lobby without a wrist band. The security guards reluctantly let me in after I told them I was checking in. My aunt whom I'm with is not one of the family members actually staying in the room, but she manages to get in the door with me while I wait to check in. I'm told I have to wait until 4 & the other members of my party must have a wristband. So me and my aunt respectfully move to a corner of the lobby to wait & dry off a bit until check in. A security guard then proceeds to walk over to me & inform me my aunt is not allowed to stand there with me, she must go outside. I try to explain I'm staying there and she's just waiting with me until I can check in. He repeats she can't stay. I am beyond irritated that my 65 year old aunt who is soaked from the rain is being told she couldn't stand with me who is paying to stay at the hotel!!! Other family members of mine stayed at the Ace hotel & did not have the issue of mandatory wristbands to even ENTER the hotel lobby. So ridiculous & I wish that had not happened because it put a bad taste in my mouth the rest of my stay. My room was clean & spacious. The actual hotel employees seemed very friendly. But again, super disappointed in the whole check in incident.

My hubby and I booked a room here to attend a ball on March 1, 2019. To begin, the parking was atrocious! There's only 2 elevators that carry only 6 people at a time. We got a wheelchair accessible room when that's not what we booked. We definitely won't not be staying again.

We love the hotel omg the room is clean housekeeping is wonderful I had so many scares for this trip but I must say we are enjoying our stay. On yesterday we finally got a chance to meet the room attendant that's been servicing our room Tasha is a sweetheart I over heard her having a conversation with another employee (NOTHING BAD) but I must say she cheered me up as well. The rain been trying to steal the excitement but me and my gals are going to party rain sleet are snow.....,We met another young lady waiting for the elevator (THAT TAKES FOREVER) and she gave us two restaurants to try out she told us that they were her go to spots we are here until Wednesday I just had to write a review because we are going to make Blake Hotel our permanent spot when traveling back to the big easy. Keith & Chad have been helping us out with directions & locations Cintrel have been checking on us everyday making sure we have everything we need and making sure the room was serviced (two thumbs up)the staff is amazing and I feel so at home if I could give 10stars I would.

My daughter in law booked this hotel because of the price. It was a great price, especially during Mardi Gras and the location. The hotel was convenient and we walked everywhere. Parking was not available due to Mardi Gras but P159 was convenient and an easy walk. (That is another issue getting to the parking lot during Mardi Gras....but that does not have a reflection on The Blake Hotel). Our room had two queen beds and was rather small but not cramped. It was clean and provided what we needed. My bed squeaked and moved like a waterbed but it was comfortable to sleep on. Not sure if The Blake would be my first choice if I visit NOLA again, but I would not be against it.

I stayed at the Blake Hotel for 3 nights for the Run Rock n Roll race weekend. I could not possibly pick a better location. It was easy walking distance to the Convention Center, the start lines for both races and a quick walk to the French Quarter or to pick up a few grocery items for the room. There was always someone present at the reception desk, staff were courteous, friendly and helpful and my room was immaculately clean. There is a lovely little restaurant downstairs and it's pretty inexpensive so if you need to get a quick bite, there's a simple menu that has something for everyone. The lounge area is lovely and the decor is beautiful. Did I mention this place was immaculate? Same goes for the bedrooms. Plenty of space and storage and decent toiletries are provided. The bed was comfortable, although I would have paid some cash for better pillows! I didn't need housekeeping service as I was solo on this trip but Housekeeping checked on me a few times to see if I needed anything, which I thought was lovely. The only down side I had was being on the second floor near the elevator and the housekeeping stock room. Between the inside and outside noise it was hard to get any uninterrupted sleep. Just something to keep in mind if you need to get sleep or are trying to get some work done. Other than that, I was really pleased and feel that the value and service were good bang for my buck, even over an event weekend!

I have a great opportunity to travel for business and pleasure several times a year. February, Mardi Gras season, New Orleans. I booked a room and then needed a Bit more info. Keith at the Blake hotel was awesome!! Even on the telephone late at night, he was professional, courteous and actually had all the answers. Imagine my surprise as I checked in this afternoon and he was at the desk. He actually had a couple of difficult guests before me, yet he was composed and took care of their needs. I Am IMPRESSED. Nori was at the counter also, smiling and polite. They guided me to the local areas I was looking for and printed out the info I needed. WOW !! What a refreshing experience. I will continue to stay at Best Western properties because of their level of professionalism. You have my permission to pass this review along. Most Sincerely, Lorelli M Washington

Stayed here for 8 nights on business. It served my basic needs and was clean and the room was spacious. The staff never seemed like they wanted to engage with customers - odd in such a friendly city.

"Fell short of expectations"

User 14/02/2019

I unfortunately experienced a data breach due to the careless actions of the hotel's management. While two managers attempted separately to make up for this mishandling of personal information - via champagne, breakfast, and pre-reserved rooms for early check-in - none of these items were actually followed through except for the breakfast (although only for 2 of the 3 mornings). While I appreciated the staff's attempts so remedy the egregious handling of my personal information, they severely lacked the follow through necessary to remedy my dissatisfaction. Outside of this isolated event, as a general patron I was disappointed in the hotel. The rooms were dated, beds were lumpy, and small cramped bathrooms. The hotel's layout results in many rooms facing street side, with a loud streetcar rolling through multiple times an hour. Many rooms will be located near or directly in front of a loud elevator. Additionally, the elevators are very slow. The redeeming qualities are the location of the hotel and the on-site restaurant. All in all, I recommend trying a different hotel. You'll likely find more comfortable accommodations down the street for a lesser or comparable price to the Blake Hotel.

Found this hotel when we were looking for something close to the WW II Museum in NOLA and the price was right. It turned out to be very centrally located in the Warehouse District, walking distance from the French Quarter and right next to the St. Charles trolley stop. There were numerous restaurants and bars within blocks of the hotel, including one in the hotel itself. Front desk people were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a great view of downtown from our rooms but it was very quiet. There was an inside parking lot on the same block for $30 for 24 hours. We liked this place so much, we are going back again next week.

My room was huge, clean and well equipped. What made my stay special was the terrific staff at this hotel. I especially liked Chelceaum, the room attendant for my floor. She went out of her way to make sure I had what I wanted. She also passed the word to co-workers that I had some preferences -- extra coffee, lotion -- so that I'd get the room prepared the way I like it when I got back from my conference. What a charming and smart young woman!

"WILL NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN.... ..."

CheldeeSmith, Natchez, Mississippi 28/01/2019

I came to the N.O for ladies night out....We arrival at the Blake around 2ish Saturday. We entered the hotel no one opened their mouth (2 Guys at the desk one checking in and the other one looking at the computer when he wasn't walking back and forward) never once spoke or ask could he assist me. So it was my turn in line finally, I got checked in never once a acknowledge as a BW GOLD MEMBER or anything. Got up to the room I noticed a stain on the bed and in the bathroom piss on the rum of the toilet & debris on the floor.Called down to the front desk and the clerk said he would change my room and bring up a key. & he did.... Next room wasn't any better may worst . So we decided to stay at the first room since it was a little better the clerk was well aware that we was going back two the first room because he did walk us to the room. Okkk so we left aorund 3ish and came back at midnight put the key in the door and got a RED LIGHT(RED FLAG ) ok I went down to the desk and the security guy got the key I had my I.D n hand but he never asked to see it ..he remade the key and I went bk up to the room I thought I was checked into. Put the key in the door and the dead bolt lock was on and a man screaming at me...SMH I couldn't believe my eyes nor ears . Ran back to the desk only to find out he never changed us back to the right room number WOW...ITS 12:30 now and our bags are in the room with screaming man that didn't have a clue he was checked into a room that was already occupied with gst and bags in the closet. Security and my cousin when bk up to retrieve our bags . So the night auditor moved us to totally different room that was suppose to be empty. The night guy was the most pleasant person we encountered at the Blake also the supervisor lady everyone else need a class on customer service he SOUTH. Another , issue was the internet never worked on my computer which was very disappointing and frustrating . We was giving 20 off breaks we couldn't use because they was busy and rude.The Blake may really need to look into a customer service class the staff because they have no clue on the service part of the business. That could have made all the issues better if they could have offered the smalls thing ever (a smile & common courtesy). The Blake need to remold the rooms as well as the staff for returning business.

Brian D, Gonzales, Louisiana 28/01/2019

Took 20mins to checkin, a/c only got room to 75, and bed was hard as rock. When I spoke with front desk they told me maintenance was not available until the morning and that that was there standard bed. Was told they were completely booked and I could either stay or leave. If I left there would be no refund.

Clean, comfortable, 5 minute walk to Bourbon St/French Quarter, right on streetcar line, restaurant downstairs with delicious yet reasonably priced food/drinks (great happy hour prices!), allowed us to check in at 8:30 am (wow!), plus stored our luggage for free on our last day so we could have a little extra time to explore. Could not have asked for more!

I like to first thanks 'Kelly' at the reception who went out of his comfort to give us 2 rooms side by side. He was very welcoming and gave good local tips to go around the night in NOLA. Rooms were good for the price and location is just 10 min walk from all main attractions of NOLA.

Staff are hot-cold.,some great, some just "try". I was placed in room with park view, was ok but the patio outside my window was broken down...good workout facility. BEST location! The Quater is a few blocks away..great restaurants with 2-3 block radius. The Chase Bank center has a great food court for lunch or munching!

We were quickly checked in. The room was a lot bigger than I expected, but clean and comfortable. The service was impeccable. This hotel was located close to pretty much anything you are looking for, merely blocks from the French Quarter. I will definitely stay here again!

Bev G, West Lafayette, Indiana 19/01/2019

We stayed 4 nights....our toilet wouldn't even flush toilet paper the entire time. Each day when we reported it, the staff could record it on their clipboard and tell us when we returned that it was fixed. It never was...on the final day, the chief engineer tried to argue with us that it was working when it clearly was not. At checkout, we had to ask for a discount for the inconvenience of having to come down to the lobby to use the restroom for our trip...which they did grant, but it felt like a begrudging move. On a positive note, I rarely sleep so soundly in a hotel bed...the bed and pillows were spectacular! The room we had was very small for the furniture in it. Don't plan on using the desk you couldn't even move the chair out enough to sit at it....guess you could sit on the bed instead. There are many other places to stay, I'd choose differently if we get back to NOLA.

Stop allowing people to smoke cigarettes in the hotel! The 2nd and 4th floors reek of cigarettes, even though it is aupsuppo to be non smoking. Rude front desk person at night acted pissed when we asked for a different room due to the smoke issue. The water was shut off for hours the last night we were there and they didn't deliver a notice under the door until AFTER it was turned back on. The room was not clean. Dust everywhere, pee on toilet seat dried up, tables not wiped off. Yuck! No actual mattress cover under sheets. No comforter or heavy blanket to sleep with, just a thin one and sheets. When there is a water problem that needs repair, let people know! Don't allow staff to treat customers like they are a bother when they ask for something. Pre requested items not in the room when we arrived. Got stuck in the elevator that only partially works. I wanted to go somewhere else but there was a fee for cancellation... I will never ever stay there again. This was for my honeymoon!

User 07/01/2019

We checked in on a Friday with no issues. We enjoyed the location of the hotel. Room was small but decorated nicely. However, the LARGE mirror in the bathroom peeled away from the wall as I was getting ready. Luckily I was there and able to catch it before it smashed to pieces. It was heavy though and had to call for my husband to assist. It could have been an ugly situation!! The mirror was only being held up by caulk! Then I tried using the room phone to call downstairs and it didn't even have the right phone jack! When we got back to the room later both items had been fixed. Having hot water was an issue as well. And then once we returned home I realized that we had been OVER charged by $178!!

I'd say pay the extra money to stay at another hotel. The price may be reasonable and the location great, but the rooms are not clean and there is no real housekeeping response during the week. There is only one person at the front desk. No doorman or valet service. Elevators are older than me.

This hotel was great! Rooms are clean and neat. Lots of space. But... The check-in on a Friday afternoon was terrible! It was busy. The lady, Zana was extremely rude, and I think she hated tourists who weren't from the US. Parking is expensive, around $45 per day (with the valet at the hotel) and we were misinformed by the Valet guy.

GaDawgFan30152, Kennesaw, Georgia 04/01/2019

We picked the Blake because it was close to where some friends were staying. It's a very clean hotel. Every single person working there were extremely nice and very helpful. Our only problem is that, like many people, we carry smartphones and tablets with us on trips. They had outlets on every lamp but they were worn and wouldn't hold our electrical plugs. We asked them to give us external outlets and they responded very quickly. They have Beautyrest mattresses that are very firm so that made sleeping a bit difficult. One important tip - ask for a room on the opposite side of St. Charles - The streetcars run down St. Charles very early and very late and they are noisy!

The hotel is in a great location for its price. It's about 5 min walk to Canal St where all the big name hotels are located. It's about 8-10 min to all the restaurants and bars you want to go to in the French Quarter. It's about 25 min to French Market. Upon check in, we were given a very dusty room. I could tell that either the room has been off market for a while for repair or the housekeeper just didn't clean it well. The Heating didn't work in the room and we asked the front desk to fix and left for dinner around 7:30pm. Upon our return at 11pm, no one has been to our room. The front desk lady was the only person there on Christmas Eve with a line of guests. She spoke to a guy in a hoodie and backpack (no uniform no name tag, wouldn't let him in if I didn't actually see him behind the front desk) and asked him to go to our room. The maintenance guy arrived, looked at the AC, found an excuse to go to the electrical room to look at something and told us that he would come back. About 30 min passed, nothing. I called the front desk, it's about 11:45PM now and the front desk told me that he has gone home from the previous shift. Mr.Kelly from the overnight shift helped me out and changed my room after he and a security guard came up to take a look at the unit. THANK YOU! He was truly the only employee who looked like he genuinely cared. I was moved from 10 to 11th floor. I had no problem with the room on the 11th floor - much cleaner. However, the elevator that has access to 11th floor was out the entire time when we were there (3days). We had to drag our luggage in middle of the night up the stairs and down when we checked out. Apparently, we met another woman who had a huge piece of luggage and she wasn't even told that the elevator to her floor was not working. We helped her with her luggage up the stairs. I stay with BW often and this is not a Premier property. I'd only stay here if you can find a great deal.

First, I want to thank Alexa for an excellent check-in. She was charming and a definite asset to my experience. The hotel's location is within easy shopping distance of Canal Street, Magazine Street, and the French Quarter. No taxi needed. My room was a decent size, and spotlessly clean Lots of TV channels to select. Front desk booked me a very early wake-up call and a taxi, both of which happened without incident. The only negative thing I can say is that they failed to clean my room the first day, other than that a very good experience.

The Blake Hotel was an excellent location to be able to walk to see several beautiful Churches. The W.W.2 Museum was only about 8 blocks away. It was only 5 blocks from the French Quarter, and a little over a mile from The St.Louis Cathedral Basilica and French Market Mall. Many places to shop on Royal. The Court of 2 Sisters Restaurant and Pat Obriens were also within a mile walk. Did not need my car during my stay. Comfortable cinvenient lodging and wide variety of places to eat everyday.

The exterior of the hotel could seriously use a face lift. I think the renovation budget went to the lobby and restaurant. The guest room I stayed in was horrible. The A/C ran the whole time but never cooled the room, the faucet in the bathroom was broken, tiny bathroom, no counter space, hot water was sketchy, beds were hard as a rock. Just an overall bad experience. Will not go back.

Stayed at the Blake for four days. The hotel did not add much to the New Orleans experience except that the location is very convenient to the French Quarter, the Superdome , Streetcar/bus and many fine restaurants. Location is the overwhelming positive to saying at the Blake. Riding the streetcar for 40 cents as a senior was very cheap, fun and it covers a large section of the city. Rode the streetcar to a grocery store, University and fitness center. Perfect. The Front Desk staff were especially nice and helpful as were all other employees. You can take a cab, Uber or Lyft to the airport for about $30+ and the shuttle for $24. It took the Lyft I ordered to pick me up one minute to arrive on site. The airport is about 30 minutes away if the traffic is normal. The room was large with two queen beds, coffee maker, fridge, desk etc. It was not luxurious but tidy. The bed on the other hand had one of the most uncomfortable, creaky spring mattresses I have ever slept on. Really bad. The housekeeping was hit and miss and there was not enough help to service the rooms in a timely and efficient manner. It is definitely an older property that needs some upgrades. That being said it is hard not to have a good time in New Orleans. The weather was perfect.

"Failed Communication and Housekeeping Issues"

Pioneer65798820856, Anchorage, Alaska 20/11/2018

I spent 4 nights at this hotel, and it did not meet my expectations.I had housekeeping issues daily ranging from missed items in the room, a pile of dirty towels left in the hallway for a day, to a day where my room was not made up at all (my last full day). I reported things to the front desk, and that helped correct things after the fact, but issues continued. The hotel uses a text message system with guests, and on my second full day I replied with a concern about housekeeping and a request. The answer I received? “Thank you for staying with us, we hope to see you again.” I responded that I had 2 more nights to go, and never received another response. When I came back to the property the third day to discover my room had not been made up, I reported it to the front desk and also inquired about the texts. By looking into the computer system she could see they were still ‘pending' from the previous day - no one had read them. I was told a manager would call me that night, but no one reached out.I checked out the next day, and wrote a lengthy email to the general manager. As of writing this I am still waiting for a response from the hotel. I would not recommend this property.

"My guests waited hours"

bdfphil, Slippery Rock, PA 12/11/2018

This hotel needs an entirely new management. I had many guests coming from long distances. Most of them had to wait hours to get into their rooms; I learned that this has been the case for some time. Our own room was never cleaned completely. Even the least expensive hotels perform better in this crucial function. That said, it is a nice property with a good location. Once a management is in place that realizes that guests should be treated well, it will merit a higher rating.

Was in new orleans for vacation and checking in was super easy and merilly was super helpful,I had a great experience even though merilly told me there was no king bedrooms available she gave me a room with a great city view and plenty of room for two people. So love going to the blake every trip to new Orleans,also love the breakfast at the square restaurant.

The Blake Hotel in New Orleans is a fine hotel with friendly and professional staff. The Cafe on the Square located in the hotel is awesome. My husband and I have stayed at the Blake each time we attend a Saints game!

Absolutely fabulous place to stay. Everything was clean & in walking distance to nearly any “must see” location. Since I've moved from the southern area, I've always missed being so close to New Orleans, so when we decided vacation/birthday trip I couldn't have been happier. Everyone we met at the hotel was extremely professional & kind. Anytime I'm back in the area, I can count on The Blake hotel for being a promising experience.

"Not worth the price"

leejaxk, Edmonton, Canada 06/11/2018

Luck of the draw I got the worst room on the floor - the ice machine was literally right outside the door and it was noisy even when no one was using it, and it had very small windows that faced a wall (so no natural light). But overall there were issues that were not unique to my room. Checking in took way too long - the girl did the best she could but why management would put her at the front by herself on a busy weekend at a busy time, no idea. Could definitely be cleaner - the bathroom had a fair bit of hair that looked to be from at least 4 different individuals. The elevator was slow and looked more like a freight elevator than a passenger one, and the key card didn't work so anyone could use it (ie. not secure). Checking out they mistakenly charged me for 4 nights' worth of valet parking even though my Uber was outside waiting to take me to the airport. They reversed the charge but given that my credit card is from Canada, the back and forth transaction actually still cost me money in foreign exchange fees.On the plus side the staff was friendly and location excellent.Overall not an awful stay, but for the price I paid and what they try to be, I expected much, much more.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay centrally located to many attractions, this is a great option. It is a little older but is well maintained and clean. Staff was attentive - we had a small maintenance issue with our room andit was addressed immediately and we were given a little goodie bag along with a nice note from the maintenance supervisor and his contact info.

Dave L, Alstonefield, United Kingdom 26/10/2018

We use Best Western frequently when we travel in the USA and found Blakes disappointing. The only interactions we had with staff was via the front desk. We asked for more coffee and after searching thry could only find one sachet. We bought snacks and they didn't know the prices. One of the two lifts is shared with service staff who were surly and unwelcoming. Breakfast was not provided, but there was an attached cafe which was independant of the hotel. We used the hotel whilst visiting the blues festival in Lafayette Square so location was perfect. There are few restaurants/cafes nearby and most of these are closed at weekends.Best Western French Quarter is better located for French Quarter, more friendly, cheaper and provided breakfast.

This hotel was in a perfect location! It was a 15-20 minute walk to the French Quarter and a 10 minute walk to the WWII Museum. Valet parking was quick and convenient. The hotel restaurant had a great breakfast, and there were tons of restaurants within a short walking distance. Our room was clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel. Great value for the location!

"Almost want to call it the Blech hotel"

Allan F, Thornhill 16/10/2018

There is so much potential for this hotel to be a 4-star amazing experience. But it falls very short. Our group had three rooms for three nights, booked two months in advance. While we were given 3 rooms at check-in, two were different than what i had been given on the hotel confirmation. Housekeeping skipped two rooms one out of the 3.5 days we were there, and I was told upon requesting a cleaning that the housekeeping staff had all left for the day and there was nothing to be done (in fairness, someone from the laundry service did come and tidy up later, presumably on orders from management since housekeeping was't available). Our room had almost no water pressure in the shower. Another of our rooms had a broken temp control handle on the shower. We reported our pressure issue - either it was ignored or was unfixable - nobody got back to me so I don't know if they even came to look. There was some mold in two bathrooms.front desk service was dismal, and apparently as Diamond members we were supposed to be given either a welcome gift or bonus points or something - we were't offered anything. In fact, it felt like we were doing them a favour by checking in. Very disappointing for a supposed "Premier" level BW. We've had much nicer and better experiences at regular BWs and BW Plus locations.The shame of it is that the hotel is actually beautiful, with old world grandeur and serious potential. A little bit of reno, a friendlier front desk and proper housekeeping would turn this into an awesome 4-star stay.The restaurant (Cafe on the Square) and really good food, but again the quality of service took down the experience a few notches. There was obvious unhappiness that for one breakfast we asked for a bit of a rush (we had 45 minutes to order, eat and leave) - the distaste was visible. We came back for lunch the following day as it was the most convenient place to eat in between our plans, and were greeted with a "are you in a rush again today?" comment -- maybe she meant it to be nice, but it came across as condescending.As others have mentioned, the ac is pretty loud -- but we didn't mind it. Also, the plugs on the lamps are very loose -- use the wall plugs if you need to charge your devices.Kudos to VaShawn from Laundry Services who did her best to make up for the missing housekeeping; and to John in the lobby who went above and beyond at all times to help with luggage, get taxis, offer help etc. He's a real gem

We found this hotel to be convenient, only 4 books or so from the French Quarter & on the St. Charles streetcar line. It was clean & the staff was very friendly & helpful. Our room A/C was noisy at first but once the staff was alerted, it was taken care of quickly. The streetcar runs 24/7 & can be a bit noisy during the night when you are trying to sleep but you get used to it.

kaylacperry, Seymour, Illinois 10/09/2018

Checking in was quick and easy. Our room was great; very roomy and comfortable. Our exhaust fan didn't work in the bathroom, so it made for a very hot and humid showering experience, but wasn't anything to make us want to change rooms. The beds were very soft, so if you're used to a firmer mattress, it'll take some getting used to. They're comfortable no less, though! Location was perfect. It was far enough from Bourbon St., so you don't get that noise factor, but it's still close enough to walk or ride the street car that goes right by the hotel! We would definitely stay here again!

jdwahoo, Dallas, TX 10/09/2018

The Blake is a great spot in many ways if you'd like to be near downtown but a little removed from the noise and chaos of the French Quarter. Nice cafe in the lobby area, spacious rooms with high ceilings and good amenities, and located on St. Charles several blocks away from the more touristy areas. I also found the business center to be very helpful - I was able to print documents from my email with no trouble. The one significant issue was the bed, which was just not comfortable to me. The mattress was thin and overly firm, and I tossed and turned all night. Very disappointing in light of the many other positive features of the hotel.

I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The staff was absolutely amazing. The room was stunning and the view was great. I even received a few text messages while I was in the quarter from the hotel making sure that we were having a good time and making sure there wasn't anything that they could do for me during my stay. They definitely went above and beyond any expectation I had from a hotel. I will definitely return.

"Horrible Experience"

User 01/08/2018

We were excited about the opportunity to stay at the Blake Hotel. The check-in process was easy and everything was fine until we arrived at our room. The room was dirty and poorly maintained. We found pubic hair in the tub and on the toilet, hair on the floor, mirrors were rusty, lights would not turn on, carpets were dirty, stained and not vacuumed. The bed, closet to the window, was missing supports and felt like the bed would fall to the ground. The bed was very unstable and unuseable. The bathroom mirror was rusted and the ceiling had chips of paint falling. We requested a crib for our 8 month baby and was supplied with a pack and play. We were ok with the pack and play however, this was also dirty. The sides were stained a brownish color and the bottom was nasty. I cleaned the bottom with a babywipe which turned black. After wiping it down a few times, we were able to get the bottom insert cleaned. We looked for a sheet but alas no sheet was brought for the pack and play. We thought no problem we will just use the extra blanket in the closet. We opened the blanket, which was stored in plastic, and there was several pieces of chips (they looked like Dorritos). We finally used the top sheet from one of the beds. The next day the “cleaning” person “cleaned” the room. Cleaned is the wrong word, she made the bed and took the dirty towels. We were given two new towels, three hand towels and no wash clothes. The dirty blanket was taken because it was left on the bathroom floor but was not replaced. The top sheet on the second bed was not replaced nor was an actual sheet for the pack and play provided. When asked we were told additional towels would be delievered but never were. We are completely horrified at our experience and would never recommend this hotel or chain to any friends or family. The staff nor management cared about the quality of the hotel or the guest experience.

The Blake Hotel is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. They really seem to anticapte the needs of the residents and provide you with an abundance of amenities, before you have to ask. For those that like simple comforts, I found two luggage racks in a nice sized closet. That alone was worth the stay to me. The employees were very friendly and professional. Everything was clean, nice, and abundant. Because they value their residents, they made sure you have everything so you won't have to ask. There is valet parking, but I found on street parking was good too, and I could see my car from my room. There are probably so many more hidden treasures' about this hotel that could be found by asking; by the basics are taken care of exceedingly well..

Lorna B, Orange Beach, Alabama 24/07/2018

I booked this hotel for its proximity to the Smoothie King Center for a concert as I thought we'd be walking. This was one of the cheapest without being too cheap. We had a nice second floor room (#213) with floor to ceiling windows along two walls. I loved the high ceilings! We truly were only in the room for an hour before the concert and an hour after waking up. The queen sized beds were actually big enough for two people to sleep in. I've been in some where the queen bed was more like a full size. The shower was okay but it took a very, very long time for the water to get hot. Yes, there may have been a few stains on the carpet or chips in the walls, but my home's not magazine perfect so those minor things don't bother me. The room and bath were clean and comfortable and served its purpose of bed and shower for one night well! The restaurant downstairs was delicious and our waiter was super nice!

User 24/07/2018

I was a guest at the Hotel Blake New Orleans from Friday 7/20 until Monday 7/23. From the beginning I was disappointed in this hotel. On arrival the elevators were out of service so my friend and I were forced to walk up seven flights of stairs with our luggage. Upon inspection of the room (Room 704) there was a water leak in the ceiling directly over the room's carpeted hallway near the bathroom, therefore the carpet in this area was continuously wet. There are walls in the bathroom that appear unfinished, as if they are under construction. The bed mattress and linens were inferior quality and the pillows were under filled and uncomfortable to the point of uselessness. The room provided very few other amenities - no provided water, tea or coffee, for example. Not even a water glass or box of tissues. On Sunday the entire hotel was hit with a total power outage. Nothing electrical was powered during the outage: no elevator service, air conditioning, lights, etc. Again, my friend and I were forced to traverse the seven flights of stairs with our luggage. The power was apparently restored Sunday evening at approximately 5:00 PM, however my friend and I were never notified of the restoration and we were forced to make emergency alternative sleeping arrangements. I would like to file a claim to request a full refund for my purchase of this hotel stay. Can someone please assist?

Checked in Friday afternoon. Examine our room and noticed it hadn't been cleaned; dust was everywhere. I showered and we stopped by the front desk to inform them. The lack of concern from the front desk staff was astonishing. Today is Monday. Housekeeping finally showed up TODAY at 3p to see if we needed our room cleaned. On Sunday, power was out for over an hour.... no one said anything. What we did get was a horrible attitude from one of the staff members when we inquired about the outage.

Pros: Location and Price Cons: Where do I start? - The café that is attached was closed for plumbing issues - so no room service or bar available. I called to confirm my booking the day before we arrived. She confirmed that we would check in on Monday, the 9th of July and checkout on Thursday, the 12th of July over the phone. Well, Tuesday evening a lady came into our room. She was given a key to our hotel room and she was a guest. So, I called down to the front desk - I was told that the room was marked as I had checked out. I had to go downstairs with the email confirmation to get it all sorted out. My room wasn't cleaned at all Tuesday (trash not emptied, beds not made, and towels not exchanged out). So, basically - they were booking another guest into a dirty room. The internet/cable provider is Cox and it went out Wednesday around 4:30 p.m. - the cable still wasn't working when we checked out Thursday morning. There is a very limited "valet" parking area - a black Chevy Camaro was there all day Wednesday and back again when we checked out Thursday morning (I am guessing an employee didn't want to pay for parking their new car). The hotel is under renovations - we were on the 4th floor - it wasn't loud to us and we were right next to it. The room needed a good cleaning - carpets, walls, baseboards, and tile in the bathroom. There was not a plug for the tub - so only showers! FYI: Find your own parking - it will save you time and money in the long run - only one valet and he was running back and forth to get cars from a parking garage - the hotel charges $44.07 per night - they really should advertise on their website.

The room was really comfortable but a little small but the location is great. We were in the middle of everything. They also have a restaurant and the food is delicious. We loved the room and would stay there again when we return if they have a room.

The pictures of this hotel online are not an accurate representation of the hotel. Nice curb appeal and the lobby is beautiful. When I stepped on the elevator it all went downhill from there. Why are the hotel guests sharing an elevator with the service staff. Every time I got on the elevator I was crunched in a corner with mops and brooms in my face because the maids had to get in with their large maid carts. Next, my shower was broken. I had to report it twice before it was fixed. Then there were flies and mosquitoes in my room the whole time. There was paint peeling off of the door. There was saltine cracker wrapping on the floor when I checked in, so clearly the floor wasn't properly vacuumed. Lastly, the maid staff left a food tray with a pile of trash and half eaten food in the hallway in front of the elevator for nearly 2 days and it wasn't removed until I complained. The room was extremely small. I paid over $400 a night for this hotel and definitely was NOT worth it.

I was very satisfied with my room. It was clean, and very welcoming experience. Staff were very kind upon entrance, and got me quickly checked in and offer ideas for sight-seeing. Attached restaurant has great food and service. Over all place is centrally located with trolley right out front for ease of getting around.

Loved the hotel, great staff and location. Only down fall was expensive parking. But overall hotel excellent. It was located near many great stores and resturants. Our family will be staying here again if we are ever in the area again.

The hotel was very nice. The front desk was very polite and accomodating. Our room was clean and had everything we needed for a great stay. My only complaint would be the only option for parking was valet and it was a little expensive.

"Fantastic Stay"

User 03/07/2018

This hotel was fantastic! Great value and Great location. The location off of St. Charles Street and the street trolley was great and being on the corner of Poydras made it easy to get anywhere downtown. I also appreciated the doors were locked with a security guard at night to allow entrance. Overall I could not have asked for a better stay.

The employees were very friendly. The room was decent enough. The location is what makes this a great place. The streetcar line runs right in front of it. Parking can be pricey so I found a garage a few blocks away for 20 a night. Got a great rate on this room on Travelzoo.

sneakylong, San Diego 10/06/2018

Enjoyed our last minute stay at the Blake. The location is right on the St. Charles Street Car line which makes getting the Garden District so easy! Also only a couple block from the French Quarter which can connect you elsewhere in a snap. There's nothing opulent about this hotel, but is was properly appointed, the staff was amazingly helpful and friendly. My only negative feedback was that the air conditioning in our room needed better air diversion. The air blew right on the bed when it kicked in which was uncomfortable at times. Need the louvers adjusted! (I tried on my own, but to no avail)! For the money, a really good value.

masakemi, Ajax, Canada 08/06/2018

The place is very well located. The washroom was borderline clean, just acceptable. The room I got was to the front of the hotel in a busy street, the blinders didnt close all the way and there was some traffic flash light every couple minutes that would invade the room. I didnt have much trouble sleeping, but if you are sensitive to this thing also noise, maybe they would have a better location than right in the front of the property. Staff was friendly, good cost benefit.

Heather H, Boutte 01/06/2018

First of all...EXTREMELY nice accommodations and location. Blake Hotel management also provides customer service like you have never experienced before! There was a minor issue that I brought to management's attention after our WONDERFUL stay during a weekend trip to NOLA. The amount of concern shown by management and the efforts they made to assure my satisfaction were ASTOUNDING. They went far above and beyond to be absolutely certain that I was satisfied with the resolution of the tiny matter at hand. Good customer service is so hard to come by these days, but the management team at Blake Hotel sure know how to do it RIGHT!

Somewhat satisfied. Hotel had problems with the elevator not working. They had to reset it several times. Seemed like it wasn't a big deal for them but when you are on the 5th floor it is. Had to call for fresh towels, the beds were not made and the trash was not picked up.

We got to The Blake way before check in needing to get ready for our concert that started the same time as check in and they worked very hard to get us at least 1 of the 2 rooms we needed so we could use it to get dressed and made up!! They were super nice about it and made it happen within 10 minutes had us keys and headed up with all our luggage!! Anything we needed was readily available and the staff had friendly smiles and chipper tones In their voice. The rooms were clean, ac worked great for us that like it cold to sleep!!! Had a great stay and will return.

User 31/05/2018

This hotel is exceptional, especially for the price we paid. The only real problem we has was that there was no window in our room, which came as kind of a shock since that wasnt advertised on the website. Felt like we were sleeping in a closet. But the room and staff were nice enough and the cafe downstairs was nice, albeit over priced. Would stay again, if for the price we paid this time.

Reggie S, Stevenson, Alabama 20/05/2018

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!

Lauren J, Gulf Shores, Alabama 20/05/2018

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"

User 17/05/2018

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 .

NYJUDE, Valley Stream, New York 14/05/2018

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.

The service was good and the accommodations were great!

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.

"Great Location!"

User 11/04/2018

If Location is your prime selling point, this is the hotel to stay. Everything else about this hotel in my opinion is average when it comes to the other attributes compared to other hotels. The location to Bourbon Street, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Smoothie King Center are amazing.

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.

bruinfan95, Elk Grove, California 09/04/2018

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.

"Pleasant stay"

Janice H, Gilbert, United States 29/03/2018

Convenient to public transportation, restaurant attached had friendly wait staff and quality food reasonably priced. Walking distance to many venues (Harrah's, WWII museum, parks and churches.) Only downside is adjusting to noise from streetcar at night.

"Valet needs to be handled better"

brittanydubroc, Greenwell Springs, Louisiana 20/03/2018

Valet needs to be handled better someone should call when the car is ready not just let it sit out there for 2 hours and the front desk needs to make sure they have all their paperwork together I almost missed my meeting because of them

Allyson C, Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear brittanydubroc, Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience. I am disappointed to learn about the experience you received using our valet service.

Tracey W, Dallas, Texas 12/03/2018

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.

Allyson C, Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear Tracey W, While I am pleased that your time with us at the hotel was enjoyable and convenient for your needs, I am extremely disappointed about your experience with our valet company and lack of follow through with one of our agents. We work everyday to ensure our guests have the best in guest service and accommodations. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the inconveniences you experienced. Your review will be used in our training to continue to improve our hotel. I have also shared your review with our valet company so that we can correct this matter so that it is certainly not something that continues. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. I appreciate your candid feedback. I hope you were able to enjoy your time in our beautiful and exciting city.

Many other better choices are available, the valet is very slow, staff is unmotivated, restaurant staff very nice and cafe is clean but fare is only average. The cleaning staff is sloppy, towels are small and scratchy

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!

User 08/03/2018

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.

Allyson C, Manager at Blake Hotel New Orleans, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear RnRNewOrleans, We appreciate you allowing us to host you during a busy and eventful weekend! We're sorry that we fell short in reference to your housekeeping needs and have addressee this with our Housekeeping manager to make sure instances like this don't happen again.

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!

From the moment we arrived to the day we checked out, everything and everyone-staff went well and very helpful.

Also, near Frenchmen Street....a must see. We would definitely come back and recommend to all family and friends.

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.

User 21/02/2018

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.

ekgri, Providence, Rhode Island 19/02/2018

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.

User 17/02/2018

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.

User 15/02/2018

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.

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.
