Booking a New Orleans day use hotel and looking to experience authentic NOLA? Here are a few ways to get charmed by the “Big Easy.”
Exploring New Orleans With Day Use Rooms
Culture - The Garden District is old New Orleans at its best. The six-mile area is famous for its opulent mansions and pristine gardens beaming with Southern charm. Nestled within the district is Magazine Street, known for its upscale restaurants and shopping. Looking for where the locals hang? Meet Frenchmen Street, home to vibrant nightlife and live music ranging from bluegrass and funk to jazz, rock and everything in between.
Eats - The Big Easy is known for its culinary fare. From classic beignets and coffee at Cafe Du Monde to charbroiled oysters and hurricanes on Bourbon Street, a day use room in New Orleans is perfect for relaxing after that big meal. Pro tip: head over to Turkey and The Wolf for the Collard Green Melt.
History - The St. Charles Streetcar is history in motion. Originally constructed in 1835, the streetcar travels on a 13-mile loop from Canal Street to Carondelet Avenue, passing through the Garden District and its antebellum homes like the popular “Wedding Cake House.”
Museums - From the Contemporary Arts Center, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, to city’s number one attraction, the National World War II Museum, New Orleans is home to some of the most unique museums in the country.
