All Types of Accomodations
The French Quarter offers a variety of hotel choices. Since this will be your "home base" give it some thought as to location, amenities, and proximity to shat you want to do.
Many larger hotels are right in the middle of the French Quarter – such as the Royal Sonesta Hotel (300 Bourbon St., 504-586-0300); The Monteleone Hotel (214 Royal Street, 504-523-3341) and The Saint Louis Hotel (The Hotel Mazarin - 730 Rue Bienville, 504-581-7300).
Travel Tip: The Iberville Suites Hotel (910 Iberville St., 504-523-2400) is basically a part of, and run by, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New Orleans. You can get a top notch room, for a little less, by booking here.
If quaint is your thing, there are several hotels in The French Quarter that fit this bill. For example, Le Richelieu In the French Quarter (1234 Chartres St., 504-529-2492) is a small, intimate hotel, in a central location. The Provincial Hotel (1024 Chartres St., 504-581-4995) is a French Quarter gem that is beautifully appointed with either genuine or reproduction antiques. The Cornstalk Hotel (915 Royal St., 504-523-1515) is an old mansion, made famous by its famous wrought-iron fence of cornstalks.
If Bed and Breakfast is your thing, there are many selections, even in the French Quarter.
Bon Maison Guest House (835 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, 504-561-8498) is a well-reviewed establishment on Bourbon, but somewhat away from the loud areas. Another popular spot is the Ursuline Guest House (708 Ursulines Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70116, 504-525-8509.)
Travel Tip: Ursuline Guest House is famous for its complementary wine and cheese on the patio, and by some accounts, is visited by a ghost.
