Simply book a Friday or Saturday night Sleep-In Weekends stay and enjoy this unbeatable New Orleans hotel deal, from $89.
This Big Easy vacation offers jetsetters a European-like ambiance without the big European price tag. The incredible rate is valid now through December 31, 2008, based on double occupancy. Centrally located and in close proximity to the famed French Quarter (talk about European, oui, oui!), Canal and Bourbon Streets, this Port of New Orleans hotel is the place to be if you can't make afford a European getaway.
Why do people call New Orleans America's most European city? The city's European flair dates back to the early 18th century when the Spanish owned the city, influencing much of its architecture, and the French, who settled in New Orleans, began building the Vieux Carré, or the French Quarter. Modern-day NoLa has embraced its European background and it's evident in the streets of the French Quarter, the Spanish wrought iron fences featured on houses and buildings, the French-inspired cuisine, the laidback attitude and more.
The Sleep-In Weekends stay also includes free parking and a five p.m. late checkout time. For more information or to book this exclusive summer rate, call 1-888-364-1200 and ask for rate code ADV or visit http://neworleans.marriott.com.
