New Orleans Hotels:

Enjoy the Hospitality

One attractive feature is that many hotels in New Orleans are historic buildings, some originally built as hotels and some, particularly in the Convention and Arts Distinct, converted from their original use.

The French Quarter is perhaps the best-known are of the city, certainly for tourists. This famous district is colorful, historic and packed with restaurants, shops and interesting sights. Hotels in this area often feature antique furniture, shaded courtyards and balconies overlooking the bustling streets below. There are many 18th and 19th century buildings where you can stay, such as the Place D'Armes, the Prince Conti and the Hotel Royale. Prices for rooms around here tend to be a little higher than average, understandable given the location.

The Central Business District, just south west of the French Quarter, has high rise hotels (such as the Hurrah's with its enormous on-site casino) and many of the familiar hotel chains, such as the Holiday Inn, Sheraton, Crowne Plaza and Hilton Garden Inn.

The Garden District is more of a residential area, but there are a number of hotels available; especially around St. Charles Avenue, which is on the Mardi Gras route. There is a good range of restaurants here, and the nearby shopping paradise of Magazine Street; it is a little quieter and prices can be quite moderate. Another option is the small bed and breakfast establishments dotted around the area.

Slidell is to the east of the New Orleans metro area and has a number of affordable options such as the Super 8 Motel, Comfort Suites, EconoLodge and Best Western.

New Orleans International Airport is about a half-hour drive from downtown. There are several choices in the immediate airport area, including a Hilton and a Sheraton. Matairie is a nearby suburb which has some good shopping and eating choices as well as a range of mid-range places to stay.

Just to the east of the CBD, the Convention Center/Arts District has a number of hotels situated in converted commercial buildings along the Mississippi waterfront. These include the Renaissance Arts (an elegantly converted warehouse) and Hampton Inn Convention Center (formerly a cotton mill).
