Only New Orleans' hotels can get you near Mardi Gras if not in it! But New Orleans is magical and thick in culture and mystery all year round. New Orleans draws investigative visitors in search of something very different and very fun. Step out of hotels in New Orleans and you can find yourself dancing along side of a spirited marching brass band, talking with Voodoo priests, sipping coffee over the buzz of Cajun French, or eating New Orleans' world famous cuisine. Taste the Bayou's catch of the day, stirred into an aged blend of French, African, Caribbean, and South American flavors. Okay, it all sounds like an international collage of dreams. Could be, but the sooner you book a hotel in New Orleans, the sooner you can find out how near that dream is to New Orleans reality.
Booking hotels for New Orleans' Mardi Gras is not about where you book your accommodations, it's about when. And for Mardi Gras revelers, you'll want to start researching hotels today, whether it is for this year's celebration or next. If you're looking to explore culture and history hotels near New Orleans' cultural center, the French Quarter will be for you. The restaurants and jazz clubs serve as the city's central attraction and you can walk all of it. To check into hotels near the Garden District just look 1.5 miles south west of the French Quarter. From there guests can stroll out to the tranquil storybook neighborhood, known for its preserved architectural character and Spanish moss-lined corridors. A tour of the Garden district will take you to the Audubon Zoological Gardens, and Tulane University where you can trace the origins of New Orleans jazz history. Finally, you can visit the eerie above ground tombs of Lafayette Cemetery No. 1. The haunting grounds may be one of New Orleans most popular attractions, but hotels near the cemetery are not recommended for the feint of heart.
