A gorgeous 4-star hotel placed on the west side of the French Quarter, Canal Street acclaimed New Orleans Marriott is a scenic way to spend your Mardi Gras. Offering just as easy access to the New Orleans Convention Center, the locale is especially popular with business travelers, not only for its on-site bar but communal balcony perfect for tossing beads. With a charming poolside and expansive suites, some with two-story rooms, you’ll be comfy inside and out. Take advantage of Canal Street trolleys to take that comfort with you, looking forward a ride around town, hopping off at either the docks of the Mississippi River’s ferry or taking a one-hour trip to Audubon Park.
Take breakfast seriously as soon as you wake up, choosing between room service and a view or looking forward to the luxe brunches of Palace Cafe next-door. For something as simple as it is iconic, head to Cafe Du Monde, an 1862 cafe offering open 24 hours a day. Those looking to experience the beauty of Lafayette Park should take advantage of the chance to walk inside St. Louis Cathedral, home to a 1700s architecture and checkerboard tile renowned for its elusive design. Take in NOLA’s iconic sunset when it’s time, choosing between the shops and trails along Woldenberg Park or going with something small and simple at Duncan Plaza, a downtown lunch spot next to the Superdome.
