New Orleans end of November with young kids? Hotels sold out

Hi everyone!

We found great flight deals from Washington DC to New Orleans for four nights right before Thanksgiving. We've never visited before and we'd be bringing our 3.5 year old and 1.5 year old. I looked at hotels, and most look sold out. I found a few airbnb options. Do you think November is a good time to visit with little ones? I think we'd try to find a place in the french quarter, but if most hotels are sold out, then I'm wondering if it's supposed to be super crowded this time of year?

Thank you so much

See a one-bedroom apartment at the nice and very well located Quarter House through Trivago/Booking.com for $228 per night plus tax. Also see availability at the well located Courtyard Downtown.

It’s a nice time to visit, the reason the hotels are filling. It’s “high” season, and there’s a Saints home game on the 18th. Very active, but not super crowded.

If you look at 18-21 for hotel availability there is plenty.

@Susie, why not? I've visited with a 2 year old before and had no problems. I wouldn't take them down Bourbon Street after dark, but otherwise, it's a great city to visit with children of all ages.

Royal Sonesta has rooms. Nice place, good location on Bourbon St. if that's what you want. They do have quiet rooms if you ask for them. Probley pricey at that time.

we've taken our kids tons of times to nola--during the day you will see a baby stroller here and there going down bourbon. we are going nov 18-21 and are so excited--its the best time, you aren't having a heat stroke like most of the rest of the year (I'm from houston and we basically have the same weather, everyone is so happy right now). my kids are 9 and 7 now and can't wait to get new beads and eat beignets. if we can't go into a bar bc of kids (like jean lafitte bar) either my husband or i pop in an get the drinks while the other waits with the kids.
