Whether you're coming to town to indulge in BBQ shrimp and beignets, celebrate a special occasion with friends, or attend a conference for work, our location in the Central Business District couldn't be more convenient. From here, you can walk to the convention center, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and the Smoothie King Center.
