While you probably won’t be spending much time in your hotel, you will need a comfortable, safe place to rest up between parades. Some of these properties are near the parade route, while others are closer to the French Quarter fun. All come highly recommended by the staff here at MardiGrasNewOrleans.com.
Hotels on or near the parade route:
The Holiday Inn Downtown Superdome, famous for the big clarinet mural on the side, is just a short walk from the Canal Street parade route and the French Quarter where much of the festivities take place. It’s also on the streetcar line. The hotel's Clarinet Coffee Shop is a must stop before you hit the morning parades. And for afternoon parades, pick up a few po-boys to go from The Clarinet Bistreaux.
