Convenient Location: In the Garden District, a streetcar runs right by the hotel’s front door. This gives you access to some of the nicest sections of New Orleans so that you won’t have to try to navigate all of NOLA’s one-way streets in your car. But the first place you need to go after you check into your room is to the Tourism Board directly across the street. Hopefully the giant painting of the three dogs by local artist George Rodrigue will still be on loan from the New Orleans Museum of Art. If not, you’ll still smile at the giant statue of the trumpet player you’ll see when you walk inside. The ladies here will help you sort through some of the many activities you might like to enjoy during your stay near the bayou.
Tourist Tidbit::If you’re Catholic, you might also want to take a walk down residential Jackson Street where you’ll see St. Marys Chapel. While this quaint building was dedicated in 1997, it is on the site of the first church in the entire state of Louisiana that was built in 1844 for German speaking Catholics. Louisiana has a long history with the Catholic Church. The counties here are still called parishes!
