The Blake Hotel New Orleans, an Ascend Collection

New Orleans, Louisiana

The hotel

Located just steps to the world famous French Quarter, The Blake Hotel New Orleans, an Ascend Collection is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown New Orleans. Before you head off for the day, stop awhile at Cafe on the Square, they’ve got a great breakfast menu including build-your-own omelettes and seasonal fruit. If you’re hovering near at lunchtime, their signature salads are great to try too! With queen queen guest rooms able to sleep up to four people, this is a great family choice, because you’re within walking distance of sights such as Jackson Square, Mercedes-Benz Superdome Aquarium of the America's and IMAX theatre, you can spend travelling money on plenty of souvenirs instead!

There is cafe attached to the hotel with great food -- Thanks again Kim and Ryan Read less

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… Read more

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. Read less

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.

The Blake Hotel saved our family vacation by providing rooms for our whole family when our first Airbnb fell through. Thank you OZ and staff for coming to the rescue. We appreciated the clean comfortable setting and hospitality. We will recommend your hotel to our friends and hope to see you again soon.

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.

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. Read less
