These NOLA hotels are hard to beat. All in or near the French Quarter, they’re tops for location, style, and Big Easy flavor.

Who’s it for? Believe it or not, savvy travelers looking for a deal. Rates in summer can dip into the $150 range. The grande dame on Canal is just blocks from the French Quarter.
Why stay here? To experience reinvention at a classic hotel. Try the restaurant redo, M Bistro, by Dublin-born chef Matt Murphy. What doesn’t change? The same aah-worthy beds.
The drawbacks. Added fees: $36/day for parking, $12.95/day for Internet. For a true hotel pool, guests must walk two blocks to the JW Marriott or Marriott International.
