Located at the heart of New Orleans’ historic French Quarter, the Courtyard along Iberville Street is a great way to get to know the unique virtues of a small, but resilient city. Offering groovy suites, an indoor pool, and balconied views from the lobby, the stay makes 3-stars look like a million bucks. Also offering high-end treatments at The Spa as well as room service from the on-site restaurant, you’ll be good to go whether you leave or not. Take advantage of nearby transportation as well, walking one block toward Canal Street trolley stops or taking advantage of the countless street taxis to get somewhere close quick.
Though the hotel doesn’t offer free breakfast, you can get a bite to eat at the on-site café, or look forward to Canal Street’s iconic brunch at The Ruby Slipper Café around the corner. Get a feel for odd-ball landmarks surrounding your stay afterward, heading to the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium for huge exhibits on the world of transformation before making your way to Woldenberg Park riverfront views. Home to over a dozen acres of greenery and winding paths that make morning jogs a breeze, you’ll be refreshed to start a day of surprises. Whether those surprises involve a night at the revolving Carousel Bar on Iberville or a 19th-century tour of the Hermann-Grima House, the diversity makes it easy to find your fun.
