For a unique experience, make a Bourbon Street hotel your address in New Orleans. At No. 4 on USA Today’s list of “Favorite Iconic American Streets” is Bourbon Street, home to Galatoire’s Restaurant, Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop, Marie Laveau’s House of Voodoo, The Jazz Playhouse, Fritzel’s European Jazz Club, the Cat’s Meow, and, if you’re lucky, you.
Choose from lavish rooms with wrought-iron balconies overlooking the rowdiest rue in the French Quarter and quieter, inside rooms with peaceful French Quarter courtyard views.
If you’re coming during festival season, plan to book early. While it may take a while to finish a Hurricane from Pat O’Brien’s or a Hand Grenade from Tropical Isle, rooms on Bourbon Street book up fast.
