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. Read less

We had leftover food in our fridge when we arrived and no one serviced our room for 3 days. We had to call to get towels every day. I recommend you save yourself the trouble. There are plenty of great hotels in NOLA.

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. Read less

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. I wanted to give a shout and highlight Kelly F. Kelly works at the front desk and he went above and beyond his duty to get me and my friend a cab to the airport during tropical storm Barry. Our Lyft driver refused to take us and Kelly went out into the street and flagged down a driver. Thank you Kelly and we will be back! Read less

Although Hurricane Barry stopped us enjoying New Orleans the Blake Hotel was like a second home. Ryan at the front desk was the consummate host always helpful. Shannon our room stewardess also went that extra mile. Thank you Shannon and Ryan and hope to see you both during our next visit 👍
