New Orleans is ready for the holiday season. Sleigh bells will be ringing and the beignets will be warm. New Orleans offers free jazz concerts and gospel cathedral concerts to entertain visitors during the holidays. There will also be caroling and free cooking demonstrations. City Park will host its annual nightly Celebration of the Oaks tour. But, none of this would be quite as special if it weren’t for the “Papa Noel” rates offered by many of the hotels in New Orleans each holiday season, too. If you’re thinking about visiting New Orleans this holiday season, take a look at some of these deals.
The French Quarter Marriott, located on Canal Street has rates from $89 to $159 between December 1 and 24. The number of rooms at this price is limited, but with the low turnout rate, it’s likely that the rates will be fairly easy to come by. In addition:
• The Hilton New Orleans offers rates beginning at $85 and has some special packages, as well.
• The Intercontinental has rates as low as $79
• The Inn on Bourbon has rates as low as $89
• The Omni Royal Orleans has rates starting at $99

This is a wonderful time of year to visit New Orleans. The city is all decked out in Christmas finery and there’s plenty to see and do. Many of the museums have special exhibits and special rates, as well. And, with hotel rates like these, a visit to the French Quarter for Christmas is certainly affordable, too.
