New Orleans is known for being a center of celebration and excitement.  From events like Essence Fest, that draws crowd from all over the country to more homespun gatherings like our Go 4th On The River Independence Day activities, there’s always something to do here in the summer.  And when figuring out where to stay during your trip, there are plenty of choices for every budget and preference.

Here are five categories of lodging establishments to help you plan your New Orleans summer vacation.

Luxury hotels

New Orleans has many hotels in the “luxury” category but few as fine as the Maison Dupuy.  Located in the French Quarter and convenient to all the action in and around that district, the Maison Dupuy combines history and modern elegance and features the largest courtyard in the French Quarter.  Eat breakfast on a balcony, rest well on a pillow-top mattress, enjoy nightly jazz piano and romantic gas-lit pathways.  The Maison Dupuy is a destination of choice for summer fun in New Orleans and excursions all year long. 

Boutique hotels

When summer activities bring you to New Orleans, French Quarter Suites is a boutique hotel that will surpass your expectations.  Right on the edge of the French Quarter, here you’ll stay in gorgeous rooms within a hotel that abounds with classic New Orleans décor.  Some rooms include a full kitchen and roomy living area with both one- and two-bedroom suites.  All the modern electronic conveniences are at your fingertips, and service is designed to be unforgettable.

National names

If you like places you’re already familiar with, New Orleans offers a selection of national-brand hotels for your stay.  The Best Western Plus Landmark is one of them, with 156 well-appointed rooms circling an eight-story atrium.  Perfect for families as well as business travelers, the Best Western features the largest ballroom in Jefferson Parish, microwave and mini-fridge in every room, and a luxurious heated outdoor pool.  Close to the French Quarter, downtown and Bourbon Street.

Economy hotels

Located in adjacent Metairie, one of our most popular economy hotels is the Ramada Metairie-New Orleans.  Quick access to Louis Armstrong International Airport, the Ramada is a great choice for summer vacationers, family reunion groups, business destinations and more, all with the budget-traveler in mind.  Amenities include complimentary breakfast at the on-site IHOP, spacious rooms with all bed sizes, free cable, outdoor pool, fitness center and a facility that’s pet-friendly.  If you’re looking for an affordable and enjoyable stay near New Orleans, the Ramada is your destination.

Vacation rentals

If you’re more into having your own place to stay during your New Orleans adventure, consider Vacation Rentals.  The French Quarter Townhouses have four and five bedrooms and space for up to 26 people, these Victorian and French cottage-style homes are great for families and groups touching down in New Orleans for summer events and festivities.  Lots of privacy, balcony views, full kitchens and roomy living areas – you can do it your way when you stay at the French Quarter Townhouses. 

And speaking of groups, you should check into special group rates at many fine New Orleans facilities.  Just go to our Group Hotel Rates page and fill out the form, and it will be sent to hotels that can meet your requirements.  They’ll get back to you with a competitive rate that’s almost always lower than standard rates you can get online.
