New Orleans isn’t just a place from which to set sail. It’s a destination all itself. With Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras, American history, wonderful cuisine, and beautiful architecture, the city truly has something for everyone. That’s why we recommend spending a day or two in the city before or after your cruise.
With the cruise port sitting right near downtown and only a few block from the French Quarter, visiting the area is very convenient. You can do everything in the heart of the city and just stroll a few blocks to your cruise.
And if you decide to take our advice and enjoy the city, then accommodations are no problem. The city offers every level of service and accommodation, from large luxury hotels to small boutique bed and breakfasts. In fact, a staggering 90-plus hotels are within just one mile of the port.
To make things easy, we’ve rounded up a number of hotels within a mile of the cruise port that are also rated by Kayak.com users as “good” or “excellent.”
This is by no means all your choices — just those close to the port. Prices represent a recent search for a Saturday night stay. Keep in mind that they will vary depending on when you book. Also, given the location near the center of New Orleans, prices can be somewhat high. If you’re looking for cheaper accommodations, look farther from the city center.
Deal Tip: Many places allow you to park during your cruise and/or provide transportation to the port as a perk for staying. Be sure to ask before you book. We’ve listed some of these hotels on our “hotels with cruise parking” page here.
