Weekend Trip to New Orleans...Where to Stay

I guess you could say that I have done a little traveling this summer...

Vegas Baby
17 day Road Trip to Washington State
 that included 9 different states
Navarre Beach, FL

When traveling people always ask, after finding
out I am from Louisianana
 "How is New Orleans?"
Well... of course my reply is....

"New Orleans is 'GREAT' and you should
come for a visit!"

Of course we encourage everyone to come and visit. 

I will be highlighting a few fabulous places to stay and visit while in the 'BIG EASY'.

This weekend we stayed at Harrahs located on Poydras Street. 

 We are greeted by a wonderful staff
in the beautiful lobby ...  

The room was large... Some hotel rooms in the New Orleans area are small due to the fact that they are in buildings dating back to the 1800's.

Loved having the television and
 refrigerator built-in.
I have stayed in some hotels were you have very little
room to get around the armoire. 
The room also included a sofa, two chairs,
coffee table and a work desk.

I love staying in a hotel that reflects the location. 
The room was adorened with very large black and white photos of New Orleans.

I am very picky about the bathrooms where I stay.
 I rate the bathroom more than the actual room. 
This one gets a gold star!
It was super duper clean with plenty of towels.

Love having a towel bar located just below the sink. 

Another built-in,  love having all the space to put on my makeup and not having to 
move my stuff around the coffee pot. 
  The next house I build, I want a built-in located like the one above. The granite were the coffee pot is located makes clean up from spills easy.

This was our view, if you request they also offer rooms with a view of the Mississippi River. 
We did not require room service, (too many great places to eat & drink)  but the rest of the hotel staff was very attentive to our needs.

Join me tomorrow for a trip to the historic
 French Quarter.
