Bursting at the seams with history, art, music and vibrant entertainment, New Orleans is a magical place with an original culture and way of life. From the music-filled Marigny and the elegant Garden District to the legendary French Quarter and raucous Bourbon Street, the city features a host of unique areas that give it the flavor of an old European capital more than a traditional American city. Enjoy mouth-watering Louisiana fare, countless iconic historical sites and a number of world-famous festivities in this powder keg of energy and fun, where anything can happen and often does. Leave your car and hop on the newly renovated Streetcar for a nostalgic tour of the Big Easy. The line stops right outside the hotel at Canal and Carondolet and forms an arcing railway through the "Crescent City." Visit the beautiful garden district and take in the grandeur of antebellum mansions from the comfort of the cars.
