Mardi Gras Hotel Rooms 2013Yup, you read that right. If you hurry, there are still rooms available for Mardi Gras in New Orleans. I know, I was as surprised as you are, but you better hurry. I promise that these rooms will disappear very quickly.

I should note that these were the rooms and suites were available at the time of publishing; I can’t guarantee the availability of any room during this very popular time of the year in New Orleans.

Mardi Gras 2013 Hotel Rooms

It’s an intimate hotel that mixes history with modern amenities to create a luxurious environment for your next visit to New Orleans.

Hotel St. Pierre: When the New York Times travel section says that a hotel is the place to stay in New Orleans, who am I to argue? The Hotel St. Pierre has this distinction and combines of mix of historic charm with the perfect location. Rates range from $209 a night for a standard room with a double bed to $299 a night for their Jacuzzi suite.

Lafitte Guest House: Located on the residential section of Bourbon Street, but still close to the excitement at the other end and many of the parades it the Lafitte Guest House. The guest house is an elegant French style mansion that’s been transformed into a luxury boutique hotel.

You can make reservations with these hotels online or by phone. If you call to make your reservations, please mention that you found out about their hotel on Mardi Gras New Orleans.

A couple of related FYI’s, be prepared for three night minimum stay requirements at many hotels in New Orleans during Mardi Gras, especially if you’re making reservations that include a Saturday night. Prices subject to change and make sure to contact the hotel for all of the details. Also, outside of New Orleans proper, there may still be more rooms available in the suburbs of Metairie and along the Westbank.

Mardi Gras 2013 Parade Packages

Zea Rotisserie And Grill doesn’t have hotel rooms for you, but they do have packages for the parades that include all you can eat buffets, complimentary drinks, free parking and most importantly bathroom facilities at their St. Charles Avenue location. Prices vary depending on the parades and like the hotel rooms, there are only a limited number of reservations available so make yours as soon as possible.

Super Bowl 2013 Hotel Rooms

Even harder to come by are hotel rooms for this year’s Super Bowl. I have heard that the HH Whitney House and Hotel Indigo have rooms still available.
