Guests say housekeeping could improve
The Omni Riverfront Hotel offers comfortable, upscale accommodations slightly removed from the the French Quarter. Located three blocks north of the New Orleans convention center and across the street from the cruise port terminal, the property also offers easy access to local attractions like the Audubon Aquarium as well as numerous shopping and dining options. If you choose to stay at the hotel for your meals, you'll find the Fulton St. Bistro, which serves comfort food in a relaxed French cafe setting. Guests say the service staff members are friendly and helpful, especially the concierge and front desk staff. Recent visitors also reported satisfaction with the spacious, clean guest rooms, which underwent renovations in 2015 to include new furnishings and standard amenities such as flat-screen TVs, coffee makers and bathrobes. Guests can take advantage of the on-site fitness center or request complimentary in-room fitness kits. Overall, guests say they were pleased with their stay, but felt the room rates were a little high for the quality. Travelers can save some coin by joining the Omni Select Guest program, where members get free in-room Wi-Fi access and can earn and redeem free nights.
