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. If you want a comfortable base from which to explore the Big Easy, look no further than The Blake. Recently renovated, it’s a wonderful place to retire to at the end of a busy day, offering spacious accommodation and home-from-home comforts including complimentary WiFi throughout. The staff are very friendly too, ensuring an atmosphere you can really relax in. 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!
