CONVENTION CENTER GUESTS & BUSINESS VISITORS
Why come to us? Our regular business travellers and convention attendees know why they come back to us, year in, year out! Because, in addition to our super warm welcome, hot Southern breakfasts and friendly, helpful staff:
And worried that maybe we're not in the heart of things? Think again! Take a look at these maps!
Easy walking distance to the Convention Center, just 10 minutes to the French Quarter, 3 short blocks from the WWII Museum, Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the many art galleries of the Warehouse District, one block from the famous St Charles Ave streetcars (and the Mardi Gras parades too!) which can take you all over town and standing at the gateway to the mansions of the Garden District and such uptown attractions as Tulane & Loyola Universities, the Zoo and Audubon Park.
Take that short walk to the Convention Center; look at the old railway lines in the middle of the street, now going nowhere, admire the old cotton mill buildings (once fully 2/3rds of all the cotton produced in the USA went through these New Orleans mills, now they're becoming very desirable condos) and stop off at some of our favorite restaurants, inc. Cochon on Tchoupitoulas St, Slice on St Charles Ave (next to The St Charles Tavern, open 24 hours a day) and The American Sector on Magazine St. Listen to some awesome local jazz or blues (or even opera!) at The Rusty Nail bar. Then pop into Deanie's for some great seafood.
And on your days off, jump on the street car uptown through the beautiful houses of the Garden District, or in the opposite direction for the Hurricane cocktail and music fuelled streets of the French Quarter or drop down only a couple of blocks onto Magazine St for some friendly, funky shopping, fun bars and fine restaurants. Close to home, St. Charles Ave in particular, has every type of restaurant and food imaginable from the upscale Emerils Delmonico to downhome po'boys to soul food BBQ joints to sushi, Chinese and fast food takeaways! You could eat around here every day of the year and still not repeat yourself!
