There was always something to do in New Orleans at any and every time of the year. People of all ages and inclinations found what they loved in this city, and the place will rock even more for travelers if they can find a suitable home for the duration of their trip.
Popular events including the Sugar Bowl, Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest and Decadence to name a few. They say August and December are among the best times to visit New Orleans. December celebrates the 'Papa Noel Week' and this is when hotels offer rates at a discount.
Hotels ranged from the modest two-star to the more opulent five-star, depending on where you want to stay: the Garden District, French Quarter and Metairie are all famous. Websites that take reservations for hotels also grade these hotels based on location, star quality, amenities, rates and so on.
The finest of New Orleans' hotels can be found a walk away from the French Quarter. Garden District hotels are only a short ride away in the streetcar. Most of these hotels offer online, real-time bookings.
The French Quarter offers travelers one-or two-bedroom condos with kitchen, dining and living areas. These are preferred for short stays. Hotels in the heart of the French Quarter are highly recommended.
Conveniently located are the hotels of the Garden District – they are positioned in the streetcar line (which operates 24 hours), and are only blocks away from the French Quarter and many other major attractions. Metairie hotels are a fabulous choice for anyone interested in location and value combined. Metairie is the suburb between the airport and the French Quarter. These hotels are considered great for families because they offer free shuttle service, among other things. Again close to the French quarter are boutique hotels, which offer great discounts. For those who need some classy elegance conveniently located, bed and breakfast is an excellent option.
However, the reality of it all is that Hurricane Katrina has changed a lot in and around New Orleans. Due to the damage caused, services and benefits at many airports, hotels and other tourism and travel oriented business are currently limited. Hopefully, they will all one day return.
