This is an incredible museum that one could stay in for hours especially if they’re wanting to learn about World War II I was amazed that there were as many females as males touring

What a great place to visit. No sugar coating the destruction of countless lives in this museum. It is well done and you could spend several days visiting and still not see everything. The tributes to the fallen heroes are breathtaking. I took my Dad's...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Sorry no idea about the hotel. But personally if you are visiting New Orleans you are better staying nearer the French Quarter for all other sightseeing, food and drink etc.
