It’s a beautiful day here in New Orleans, the sun is shining, there’s just a few lingering clouds in the bright blue sky and in other words, it’s a perfect time visit the Big Easy and we wish you were here!
It’s a perfect time, especially when you consider the lower summer rates here, at Hotel St. Marie in the French Quarter. This summer’s rates are as low as $60 a night on select weekdays and start at $122 on weekends. It’s a chance to save big, especially when you compare it to the rates during the more popular times of year, like the spring festival season.
Of course, it’s warm right now, but that’s why we have a shaded tropical courtyard with a refreshing pool and are we’re constantly making sure that the air conditioners are set to chill. The warmer weather just means less crowds and shorter lines at the popular French Quarter attractions, restaurants and shops.
Plus, there’s still so much going on in New Orleans. Last weekend, was the Running of the Bulls, our twist on Spain’s famous event with roller derby girls racing through the New Orleans streets instead of ferocious bulls. This week is the Tales of the Cocktail which brings drink industry insiders, scores of the nation’s best bartenders and spirited enthusiasts to share what’s hot and upcoming in the drink world. Next month kicks off with the Satchmo Summer Fest, which is a musical festival in the French Quarter to honor the late, great Louis Armstrong. Then all of next month is Coolinary, a celebration of dining in America’s most delicious city, with specially priced meals at the best restaurants in New Orleans.
I hope to see you soon!
