How close is the streetcar stop?

There are 2 convenient stops nearby:

Is Mardi Gras every weekend?

No. Mardi Gras is held once a year, typically in February or early March. Mardi Gras day is the Tuesday before the Catholic holiday of Ash Wednesday. Parades run throughout the city in the 2 weeks prior to Mardi Gras Day. However, it isn't unheard of to see a parade rolling down Canal Street on a random weeknight any time of the year. New Orleanians will have a parade for anything!

If you are planning to host a group with us, we can help you create a special parade style atmosphere by enlisting a second line band to march with you and your guests. Be sure to ask one of our sales managers how to create this experience while you are here!

Do you have a shuttle from the airport or train station?

Unfortunately a New Orleans city ordinance prohibits downtown hotels from offering shuttle service to/from the airport/train station, but we do work closely with a partner who offers this service. Book Airport Shuttle

Is it safe to walk around the city?

New Orleans manages crowd control and large-scale special events like no other city in the country. However, as with all large cities, we encourage guests to utilize common sense and refrain from exploring deserted, non-tourist areas of the city.

Do your employees have pet alligators?

Contrary to popular belief, alligators do not run rampant throughout the Greater New Orleans Area. However, our Concierge Desk would be delighted to coordinate a Swamp Tour for you. 

Do you offer special group rates?
