This hotel offers remodeled and upgraded rooms where you are greeted with champagne, sweet treats, and multiple dining options. All services are strategically reduced because of Covid, but the offerings and quality of stay are still adequate.
Located only a mile from the artsy Jackson Square, you can stroll for 20 minutes, crossing iconic Canal Street, or take an Uber or Lyft three minutes to the infamous Cafe DuMonde. You can also walk or ride to the Riverwalk, which offers seafood restaurants, shopping, riverboat cruises, and scenic views of the Mississippi River. This is the perfect place to take great selfies.
The Higgins Hotel is connected to the World War II Museum and has an attached parking garage. All rooms are dedicated to military veterans and the main decor of the hotel is an homage to the armed services. The hotel caters to the military and offers a military rate and government rate on a space availability basis.
Grand-sized and spacious conference rooms and ballrooms occupy the second floor. Even if you aren’t staying at the hotel for a meeting or event, you can take advantage of the space just to relax outside of your room. The oversized windows and rooftop give a full panoramic view of downtown New Orleans.
The hotel is updated with all the latest technology, including contacting and ordering, via tablet right from your bedside table. Whether you want to stay for a week or just stop by before boarding your cruise ship, this is your spot. Check out the video and see for yourself:
