The French Quarter, an area already full of life, is getting ready to shine this weekend. Mardi Gras is in full swing, and Friday, Feb. 28 marks the beginning of the biggest weekend of the season.
From Uptown to the Westbank, Krewes will be parading throughout New Orleans every day through Fat Tuesday. Once the parades are over, the French Quarter becomes celebration central! Our hotel provides a relaxing atmosphere in the center of city’s biggest party.
