Coming for Mardi Gras? Here are Two Unique Places That Will Make Your Trip Even Better


If you are coming for New Orleans Mardi Gras now is the time to book your room. And if you want to stay a little longer rooming at one of these unique places might just be the ticket. Of course, they ain’t cheap. And maybe it’s time for you to splurge a little on yourself.


These hotels are atmospheric and unique and are the perfect spot to get that real New Orleans vibe. They are the Kingsway Mansion and the International House.


The Kingsway:

The 19th century Italianate mansion sits on a dark, quiet corner of New Orleans’ French Quarter, blocks away from the bars and restaurants that draw the crowds. That darkness and a flickering lantern in front lend a sense of mystery, adding to the history that spans generations and includes some of the most colorful characters this spirited city has known.

The International House:

For those visiting the city for a shorter stay, Cummings’ International House, New Orleans’ first upscale boutique hotel when it debuted in 1998 in a Beaux Arts building in the city’s Central Business District, is a showcase of New Orleans artisans that is constantly evolving and the only one that includes a Banksy as a permanent fixture.
