New Orleans Hotel Recommendations | Winni Wanderer

Hotel Monteleone

“Old school luxury and service, yet affordable. Great location for walking to just about everything in the French Quarter. Roof top bar is fantastic. Comfortable rooms.”

Other tips while visiting New Orleans: “Visit in Spring or Fall when the weather is nice.”

John W. – Colonial Heights, VA

The Jung Hotel & Residences

“This beautiful property is just far enough away from the commotion of the French Quarter for a wonderful night sleep; however, within a 12 to 15 minute walk of all the downtown attractions. We loved the Petite Suites (corner rooms), as they give you a little bit of extra space. This is definitely a fully renovated historic property with a beautiful rooftop pool and great fitness center.”
“This historic hotel is absolutely beautiful.”

Ryan S. – Pasadena, CA

The Roosevelt New Orleans

“It’s an elegant, historic hotel with quiet rooms, comfortable beds and a wonderful staff. There’s a Nespresso machine in the rooms to start your morning with and Teddy’s Cafe, downstairs served coffee and beignets that were better than most places in the French Quarter. The Sazerac Bar is a classy, upscale place with outstanding cocktails and it’s only a 3 to 5 minute walk to Bourbon Street.”

Things to love about the hotel: “Old World Charm in a great location.”

Sonder Maison de Ville

“Maison De Ville was a beautiful stay. It was right on Bourbon Street near every historical bar/restaurant, so it was easy to go explore and come back if you wanted to rest or just drop your shopping bags off. This hotel used to be a mansion back in 1800/the 1900s, and a lot of the historical pieces like art were preserved! If you're a history buff, then this is the perfect place. There is a rumor some of the rooms are haunted, but I didn't have any experience with ghosts, so I can't confirm.”

Things to love about the hotel: “The history! It's a boutique hotel built in an old mansion, so all the rooms were someone's, once upon a time, in the French Quarter.”

Jordyn E. – Dallas, TX

New Orleans Restaurant Recommendations | Winni Wanderer

Chemin á la Mer

“The whole experience was phenomenal. Bar staff were outstanding and entertaining. Loved the $1 oysters and happy hour drinks. Our dinner was out of this world. Our waiter explained how the specials were made and recommended a nice Riesling to accompany our meals. Would rate it a 10+/10. Oh, and the view of the river was tremendous. Unfortunately, it was a little too cold to sit outside. Maybe next time.”

Favorite item on the menu: “$1 oysters at the bar.”

Audra K. – New Castle, PA

Parkway Bakery & Tavern

“I grew up in New Orleans and always ate poor boys at another well-known place. Once I ate at Parkway Bakery, I never went back to the other. Their food is amazing, the poor boys are all fabulous, and the sides are delicious. The have fabulous Bloody Mary's, and I consider it my must-do restaurant when I’m in New Orleans.”

Favorite item on the menu: “Fried Shrimp Poor Boy.”

Linda P. – Birmingham, AL

Coop’s Place

“Coops is a wonderful, low-key place in the French Quarter. While the Quarter is touristy, Coops is an authentic place that locals and tourists both frequent. We arrived straight from the airport, and let me tell you, there is nothing better than a cold Abita Strawberry beer with Coops' delicious bbq oysters and shrimp. Service is great, very funny waiters and barbacks. It's not formal, most everyone rolls up with lots of friends and family in tow.”

Favorite item on the menu: “Oysters and shrimp.”

Christina B. – Marina del Rey, CA

The National World War II Museum

“This is an all-around unbelievable experience. It’s multimedia and multi-sensory and quite immersive. It makes you appreciate the violence and horror of the war without ever being gratuitous. You even get to follow an individual soldier’s journey through the war so your experience is like no other’s.

Simply incredible!”

Best part about the experience: “Being able to follow a soldier’s individual journey.”

Steve L. – Brooklyn, NY

Mardi Gras World

“A great family experience to see everything about how the quintessential Mardi Gras parades are done. We got to see the workers making the floats and costumes that are used by the 100's of people involved in the annual tradition. Larger than life animals, giant versions of Superheroes, endless flowers and sparkle and glitter that adorned everything. Definitely a highlight of anyone's visit!

Best part about the experience: “An in depth behind the scene view of ALL that ids a Mardi Gras Parade and more! Amazing and FUN!”
