We've held a block of hotel rooms in the French Quarter, and we’ll plan a few site visits.
You book & pay for your own flights, hotel & meals for the pricing & timing that works best for you!

Book your own flight for the arrival & departure times (and prices) that work best for you!
At Louis Armstrong International Airport, there is a taxi stand that can take you to the French Quarter in approximately 30 minutes for $45. Public buses and ride-share also available.
In the city, walking, bikeshare, rideshare & streetcars can get you around the French Quarter, Treme, Marigny & Bywater neighborhoods.
For our trip to Whitney Plantation, we’ll arrange roundtrip transportation (1-hour ride each way).

We have held a block of rooms at the Hotel St. Pierre in the French Quarter, at a discounted rate of $239/night. (Many hotels this weekend run $300-500. It’s Mardi Gras season!)
Reservation deadline for discount: January 7, 2019
When you register for the fieldtrip below, we’ll share the secret password to book your room! Queen, King & Double Rooms available.
We have selected Hotel St. Pierre because it is charming & historic with a courtyard pool — and is located in a quiet part of the Quarter, within walking distance of two Mardi Gras parades.
You are also more than welcome to find your own lodging! Book early, rooms fill up this time of year.

The Krewe du Kanaval on Saturday, led by Preservation Hall and Arcade Fire, celebrates the city’s Haitian heritage and raises funds for humanitarian work in Haiti & New Orleans through the Preservation Hall Foundation and KANPE.
For Krewe du Barkus on Sunday, we have a private balcony viewing spot along the route!

We’ll be honest: On a scale from mellow to decadent, we’re on the mellow side! We enjoy the parades for their artistry, history & beauty. If you’re looking for more party, the Hotel St. Pierre is just 2 blocks from Bourbon Street. :)
