Rooms with a Vieux
New Orleans’ most famous neighborhood is the French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré. Every year, millions of travelers save up their precious vacation time for a few days or a week in the Quarter. Partiers love to be smack dab in the middle of the Bourbon Street fun, foodies crave easy access to world-famous, century-old restaurants, and who doesn’t enjoy strolling the cobblestone streets, peeking into hidden courtyards and fun little shop windows filled with treasures.
On the edge of the Quarter is an artsy neighborhood known as the Faubourg Marigny, after the Creole plantation owner who once owned this land. Here the architecture blends colonial French and Spanish styles with elements of the Caribbean. If you came to New Orleans for the music, the clubs on Frenchmen Street are reason enough to book a room here.
