We love our official hotel, the Omni Royal Orleans, located in the heart of the neighborhood. The hotel also hosts one of our stages on Saturday of festival!  Visitors should also check out the digs at the Royal Sonesta New OrleansWestin New Orleans, or Windsor Court when planning their stay.


Locals know that getting to Festival is easy, but parking is challenging. Arrive early to park in these lots located in the heart of the festival: French Market, 300 North Peters Street, 211 Conti Street, The Garage at Canal Place, and various locations within walking distance.
