Great Affordable Hotels in New Orleans

New Orleans has rebuilt itself and it is more charming than ever. Whether you are looking for luxury accommodation or inexpensive digs, the City of New Orleans is sure to have a hotel that best suits your budget!


Perhaps the most luxurious hotel in New Orleans is the Maison De New Orleans – a historic landmark so antique in every way that it is practically considered to be a work of art! Located at 904 Rue Iberville in the heart of French Quarter, this Five Star Rated Hotel has spa facilities, French linen and a swimming pool in its courtyard and room rentals start at $385.00 a night for single occupation. Also very haute, in terms of both its services and amenities is the Ritz Carlton located at 921 Canal Street in the French Quarter. This opulent hotel includes a 20,000-foot spa, two ball rooms and antique furnishings. Room rates at the Ritz Carlton begin at $335.00 for a single occupancy.


A nice moderately priced place to stay is the Dauphine New Orleans Hotel where rooms go from between $169 and $229.00. Located at 415 Dauphine Street this romantic old building houses a courtyard complete with antique fountain and modern swimming pool. Iberville Suites, located at 910 Iberville street in the Central Business District is a more modern hotel that pampers you with full services, an American breakfast buffet and rates that start as low as $115.00 a night.


A good cheap hotel is the Maison Dupuy, which is located at 1001 Rue Toulouse just two blocks from Bourbon Street and the bustle of the French Quarter. This historic building is just a hop, skip and jump from all the major attractions and rooms can be had for a low as $69.00 for a single occupant.  However perhaps the cheapest and most charming hotel in the city is A Creole House Hotel at 1013 St. Ann Street. Rooms in this historic building that was built in the 1830s start at $49.00 a night.


Of course for those of you who prefer the comfort and security of a franchise, both Best Western Hotels and Holiday Inn have locations in most of the major districts across the city.


You don’t have to spend a lot of money in New Orleans to feel pampered, but if you want to feel really special, try booking yourself into one of “the Big Easy’s ” Five Star Hotels and along with the jazz music and exotic food, feel that you have been transported to another world.
