As a guest of one of our Holiday Inn Express® New Orleans hotels, you'll enjoy the rich history, great music and diverse culture and cuisine of Louisiana's most celebrated city.
Hop on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar and tour the beautiful Southern mansions of the Garden District or spend the day - if not your entire New Orleans hotel stay - wandering the charming streets of the French Quarter. There's art and antiques on Royal Street, trendy boutiques and gift shops on Magazine Street and lively street performers and musicians in Jackson Square. Enjoy a cup of chicory coffee and fresh beignets on the patio of Café Du Monde or duck into one of the Quarter's seemingly hole-in-the-wall restaurants for authentic Creole gumbo and spicy jambalaya. Bourbon Street can be a bit of a tourist trap during the day, but once the sun goes down, New Orleans' famous party district earns its reputation.
Enjoy sugary-sweet rum hurricanes and authentic New Orleans jazz as you dance the night away in Bourbon's legendary bars and clubs.
If you're willing to venture out of the city center during your stay at our New Orleans hotels, stop by one of the above-ground cemeteries. St. Louis is the oldest (dating back to 1789), and its hauntingly beautiful tombs have been featured in major Hollywood movies and works of fiction. Tour groups are your best and safest bet here; although, carriage tours of the cemetery can be a real treat. New Orleans carriage drivers are all certified tour guides, and their knowledge of the city's history and culture, as well as their local flavor and spin are far better than any travel book.
Of course, this is only a sampling of what the Big Easy has to offer our New Orleans hotel guests. Time your visit during Mardi Gras or Jazz Fest to experience the lavish and boisterous festivals that make this city so special.
The stay at the hotel was great. We just had some minor details that should have been taken of but wasn't .[Less]
Front desk staff was much more friendly than most and made you feel at home. Free breakfast was very convenient.
Not much food selection in the area but I had a rental car so I drove down to the[More] 10 minutes to French Quarter to meet up with the others that had stayed downtown. On the upside I didn't have a 30 minute drive to our meeting location in the mornings like they did.
Easy in and out free parking.
Overall very confused why our work program only gave it 2 stars because this was definitely nicer than that![Less]

Nice Hotel but fees and taxed to death
It was a nice hotel but the taxes and fees from local government are a joke and $42 valet parking is absurd. This is obviously the first time I've stayed in New Orleans.[Less]
The staff was very polite and very helpful. The location is perfect. Streetcar stop just a block away. Perfectly located between Bourbon street and Decauter[Less]
I stayed at the hotel for business and ordered room service most of the time I was there. The woman who delivered room service each night was extremely pleasant. On the whole, the staff was very[More] courteous, friendly, but professional.[Less]
