Best New Orleans Party Hotels
Into the NOLA Night
Mardi Gras may be a week for revelers, but that’s not the only thing New Orleans is known for. For those who like their options when it comes to having a good time, NOLA has tons to offer–from jazz clubs to casinos, from wild nights to mature get-togethers, and everything in between. After all, it’s the birthplace of countless of cocktails.
Behold: Our list of hotels where you don’t even have to leave to find a good time. We can’t say we didn’t warn you.
There are hotels with plenty to do, and then there’s the Ace Hotel New Orleans. Chill poolside at Alto and grab a sun-drenched lunch. Grab evening drinks and oysters at Seaworthy like there’s no tomorrow. Or make new friends over a Sazerac at the lobby bar. For the full experience, let the music lead the way at 3 Keys.
If you’re feeling like a high roller and want to indulge in a little gambling, this is the place for you. At the Harrah’s Casino, you can try your luck at table games or slots. Their Vegas-style club Masquerade is where you can have a night of Caesar’s style dancing. It may not be the vintage New Orleans glam, but Harrah’s certainly provides opportunity for travelers who are looking to live it up.
The Saint has an edge of playfulness, yet exudes sensuality through their sprawling white interiors and red and blue lighting. At The Burgundy Bar, the mood is just right with nightly shows, and their evening jazz alone makes this hotel worthy of praise. Should you want your night to never end, you’re within walking distance to the busy French Quarter.
This spot is for discerning travelers who are looking for an upscale experience. Windsor Court Hotel is where you’ll get exactly that. You might find yourself absorbing live jazz at the Polo Club Lounge, or maybe you’ll head to Le Salon for high tea. Whatever you do, make sure you book a table at The Grill Room for a complete meal. There’s something glamorous to do around the clock at Windsor Court, and we’re not complaining.
