Convention & Central Business District Hotels

Located in the New Orleans Central Business District, the Convention Center area of our city is home to many hotels due to its prime location between the beautiful Garden District of New Orleans and the French Quarter. Hotels in this area are in the heart of New Orleans and close to everything; visitors can hop on a streetcar and go throughout the city or walk just blocks to the Convention Center. New Orleans hotels in the CVB/Convention Center area are just blocks from many famous restaurants and the Superdome, home of the Saints! Selecting a hotel in this area will always be a great choice whether you're coming to New Orleans for business or pleasure.

Our Central Business District (locals call it the CBD) is steps away from the New Orleans Arts & Warehouse District. This district is home to many historic buildings and art galleries. Although slightly newer than the French Quarter, it is the central area of our city.

Attractions near the Convention Center

New Orleans hotels in the CBD area are located within walking distance of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center as well as many other of the city's key business areas such as Gallier Hall. However, the area is also close to many of the more popular activities ... within walking distance or a short streetcar ride to our world famous French Quarter and steps away from world-class New Orleans restaurants, festivities and shopping in the Riverwalk overlooking the Mississippi. When you stay in a Convention Center hotel, you'll be close to the French Quarter but will not have to deal with the traffic and nightly activity should you decide to return to your hotel to relax after a long day of fun in New Orleans, guaranteeing a quiet and peaceful night's sleep.

Hotels near the Convention Center are also a short walk to the New Orleans Superdome if you're coming to see a game. The Saints play their home games in the Dome, and it's home to the BCS Sugar Bowl every year.

Other nearby attractions include the Mississippi River and the New Orleans Cruise Port, the Riverwalk Marketplace, the National WWII Museum and a number of the best restaurants and cocktail bars in the city.
