Cruise On In

Our Hotel near Port of New Orleans

Our hotel’s close to the Port of New Orleans

Several cruise lines leave from New Orleans, on their way to far-flung destinations like Mexico, Belize, and the Bahamas. How can you make an itinerary like that even better? By adding on a few days in New Orleans before or after, of course (in our opinion, the best port of all — not that we’re biased or anything). Depending on the cruise line, Kimpton Hotel Fontenot is only a few blocks to about a mile from where the ships dock, so you can go straight from land to sea with no hassle. And if you miss the 24-hour buffets that cruise life offers, never fear — we have 24-hour in-room dining to come to the rescue.
