A waterside hotel known for its simple qualities and unique placement at the heart of downtown, the Extended Stay America along Veterans Boulevard offers all the ease of The Big Easy without any of the commitment. Especially popular with business travelers due to its close access to Louis Armstrong International, the low-key hotel is a simple way to enjoy the far west side, not only for its free breakfast but complimentary airport shuttles. Head to Veterans Boulevard to take advantage of public transportation as well, hopping aboard the E-1 stop to get to the neighboring city of Metairie and beyond.
Be sure to keep up with attractions close and far, starting with where to grab lunch – Veterans Boulevard is home to a slew of fast food restaurants as well as local treasures including authentic Mexican at Don Jose’s Grill and the southern comfort of Bud’s Broiler. Head to Lafreniere Park for a nearby getaway at some point, enjoying lakeside views and miles of paths just down the street, or continue east on Veterans to experience the local shops and snack stands at Metairie Lakeside Shopping Center. Those looking to have a classic Louisiana night should take time to explore NOLA’s most iconic streets, whether it’s the French Quarter’s iconic bars on Canal Street or quiet sit-downs along one of Decatur’s many riverside cafes and restaurants.
