New Orleans neighborhoods are full of little treats, whether it’s a small family restaurant, the perfect sno-ball stand for a hot day, or a hot jazz den. But if you want to be in the thick of the action in the French Quarter, the Hotel le Marais is a great spot to consider for your New Orleans home away from home.
The boutique hotel’s 66 rooms have flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, alarm clocks with iPhone/iPod docking stations and comfortable bathrooms. Continental breakfast is included, as is a welcome beverage. And for those who travel with a car, valet parking is available. Double room rates start at $169 on weekdays and $309 on weekends.
The hotel’s location smack in the middle of the French Quarter is ideal for getting out and seeing the wealth of sights, but when you don’t need to be seen yourself, just retreat to the brick courtyard with its saltwater pool. It’s one of the best ways to treat yourself during the heat of summer.
