Hotels, New Orleans

Alex and I stayed at the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans for our honeymoon. It is located in Central Business District ( CBD) and was about a 10 min walk to the French Quarter. We stayed in a  HUGE suite. The Windsor Court is said to be one the nicest luxury hotels in the area but it was not really our style. The service and rooms were great but we have stayed in more luxury places for less. It is very very traditional and I think that might have been what we liked least about it. We are more of a modern, clean line loving type hotel and that is just not what New Orleans is about. There is nothing modern about NO, so we had to get used to that.  High Tea is supposed to be amazing here, we unfortunately did not got to attend it.  


The International House Hotel is also in the CBD, I really like the look of this place so it might make the short list for where we might stay on our next visit.

My parents stayed at the Royal Sonesta Hotel on Bourbon Street when they made a visit and loved every thing about it. They had a room facing the court yard and did not have any problems with noise. They were down there this past February and the city was still celebrating the Saint's Super Bowl win and Mardi Gras was the just finishing up.

There seems to be lots of little B&B tucked into little alley ways around the city so I am sure there are many more amazing places out there yet to be discovered by me.
