When you think of New Orleans, you think of a non stop party in the street. Well, the French Quarter certainly fits that bill and this Drury Inn property is one block from the start of the French Quarter and conveniently located a half block off both the St Charles Streetcar line as well as the Magazine Street Bus Line. From this centrally located hotel, you can easily walk to the Superdome, the French Quarter, and the Convention Center. Literally if you drew a circle of the cool things to do during the weekend for a wrestling fan in New Orleans, this hotel is in the epicenter. If prime location isn’t important enough, its also a great value at $179/night for our WrestleCon group rate. Good luck finding a nice hotel in downtown New Orleans for under $250/night during Mania week! In addition to a newly refurbished hotel, you not only get their “hot quickstart” breakfast but you also get a 5:30pm “Kickback” where they provide a rotating menu of hot foods and cold beverages. There is free high speed internet, free soda/popcorn from 3pm-10pm. They even give you a voucher for one free alcoholic drink for each night you stay at the hotel to be used during their “Kickback”. Did we mention they have a heated rooftop pool? Dont let the name of the hotel chain fool you, nothing about this hotel is DRURY, but everything screams BAYOU!

This hotel has an address on the second most famous street in New Orleans. St Charles Avenue has the one and only street car that runs straight through the heart of New Orleans. The street car stop is literally in front of the hotel, you hop on the streetcar ($2/day for unlimited rides) and take it anywhere you want to go in New Orleans. It runs all the way to the French Quarter, so there is nothing better than after a long night on Bourbon street to simply hop on the street car, take a 10 minute ride through the historic avenue and have it dump you off at your hotel at 4am. This hotel is located in the Garden district, which is where alot of the locals live, shop, and dine. Its one block off from Magazine Street which is a compulsive shopper’s dream. If you’re bringing family, a wife, or girlfriend that needs “something else” to do in New Orleans, this is your best bet. She can shop all day on Magazine Street, walk through the historic multi million dollar neighborhoods, and then run up the charge cards at every local boutique up/down on St charles Avenue. The street car will also take you right to all the “tourist” spots such as the World War Museum, Contemporary Arts Center, Lafayette Square, the Aquarium, and more. If you are staying in New Orleans and planning to do any movement, you will find a need for this Street Car as it simply stops at every artery in the city making it only a few blocks of a walk to get ANYWHERE. Its like having a built in open air taxi for your entire trip.
