Boutique Hotel Near Tulane University

Our hotel close to Tulane University

Whether you're in town to tour Tulane's campus with a prospective student, pick up or drop off a kid who's currently enrolled, or attend an event at the school, you don't need a perfect SAT score to know that Kimpton Hotel Fontenot is a smart choice for staying near Tulane University. Lined with century-old oak trees, the college's grounds are just a 15-minute drive away, or you can get there via a charming ride on the historic St. Charles Streetcar, which passes by some of the city's prettiest architecture. The leafy campus sits right across from Audubon Park and is home to the kind of vibrant events you would expect from a New Orleans institution, including Crawfest, an annual music and arts festival with 20,000 pounds of crawfish for the eating.
