Verified Reviews of Blake Hotel New Orleans Best Western Premier Collection

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Location, excellent service, nice for groups."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Just finished a two night stay at the Blake with a group of 25 rooms. Great property, very well located. Just far enough outside the Quarter so it's a bit quieter, but easily accessible to everything. Terrific, friendly and helpful staff. Group check in was a breeze as all rooms were ready on time. Really appreciated that all hotel staff front desk, housekeeping, maintenance go out of their way to greet you, ask how your stay is going and if there is anything you need. Rather than rely on a rack of tourist brochures, they give great recommendations and directions for local attractions and activities. Any concerns about our rooms were handled promptly and efficiently. Gym up on the 11th floor has great reliable equipment with a nice view! Restaurants are also excellent. The only improvement would be if the restaurant had a bar area that was conducive to hanging out at night. It's a bit too brightly lit, but it's not like there aren't a million other bar opportunities within a few blocks!

"A few insects inside but very nice"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We enjoyed the Blake. I believe it could use fumigating after each three or four months just to make sure no bugs could be seen, but staff extremely helpful as well as the manager and hotel is extremely close to everything including Amtrak (no vehicle is needed). I will definitely stay again and recommend it for anyone going to New Orleans.
