Getting Around Town

Parking in and around New Orleans can get tricky and costly. If you are new to the city and want to play it safe, we suggest the following:​​

  1. Walking

Our hotel is centrally located in the heart of the city, making most locations easily accessible by foot!​

2.  Bike Rental

With over 100 miles of bike lanes, you can explore the city from the Mississippi River levee through the French Quarter. Rent a bike for the day.

3. Busses and Ferries

The city bus system is a classic, reliable transportation option, and if you plan on traveling across the Mississippi River, you can always catch a ride on the Algiers Ferry. For a more informational bus experience, the Hop-On Hop-Off Tour buses circulate around some of the more popular tourist areas in the city, offering pick-up every 30 minutes.

4. Pedicabs

If you don't have far to go but it seems a little too far to walk, go ahead and hail a pedicab as a fun way to get around New Orleans. 

5. Streetcars

Streetcars are a charming and convenient way to experience the many areas of New Orleans. Four distinct lines, each originating Downtown, will take you through the French Quarter and beyond to places you might not otherwise get to see. If you’re paying with cash, correct change is required. For adults, that means $1.25 per ride (children aged five to 12th grade are $0.50 and seniors/riders with disabilities are $0.40).

If you’re planning on riding the streetcar multiple times, we recommend purchasing a Jazzy Pass. One-day pass is $3, 3 day pass is $8.
