New Orleans Hotels
Hotel rooms are plentiful in the New Orleans, except during Jazzfest, Mardi Gras or when a large convention is in town. Rates are lower in the summer (June, July, and August) and during the Christmas season. Most hotels are centred around the French Quarter and surrounding neighbourhoods, such as the Central Business District (CBD).
The New Orleans hotels are grouped into three pricing categories:
Luxury (over US$250)
Moderate (US$150 to US$250)
Cheap (up to US$150)
These New Orleans hotel prices are for a double room per night; breakfast is not included unless specified. Hotel tax is 13% plus US$1-2 per room per night (depending upon the number of rooms in the hotel).
