Quietly placed on the southwest side of Louis Armstrong Airport, the Best Western Plus along Airline Highway is home to unique views of the Mississippi River as well as casual on-site amenities. Offering free breakfast, a sunny outdoor pool, and a handful of specialty suites that add pull-out sofas, the stay is ideal for business travelers looking to get the most bang for their buck. Take advantage of the hotel’s airport shuttle as well, getting to and from the terminal without hassle, or reserve a private ride of your own to explore the historic wonder of New Orleans, Metairie, and everything in between.
Though the hotel is half an hour from downtown NOLA, a variety of nearby attractions make staying close to the airport a good thing. Take a quiet stroll through Lafreniere Park, enjoying scenic jogging paths that move from boardwalk to historic carousel to hidden fishing spots perfect for seeing it all without going far. Get views of America’s most iconic river by heading toward 3rd Street’s Mississippi River Trail, located less than a mile south of the hotel and offering an easy escape from work. Those heading to the nearby Pontchartrain Convention Center should savor the moment, walking behind the facility for quiet sunset strolls through Laketown Park as well as the riverboat scenery of Treasure Chest Casino.
