We enjoyed this article on Thanksgiving Day in the newspaper. Here is our summary of what was said about this very important meeting held Nov.10-13, 2006. New Orleans continues to hear good news about its ability to host meetings, thanks to the hard work of many in the tourism field here in New Orleans. The […]

I am a member of (VAcation Rental Mangers’s Association) and they are having their national conference in October of 07 in New Orleans at the Convention Center. Is New Orleans ready for conventions? Can you maybe prepare a list of your local inns that would accommodate members of this group? I would love to tell other members that they can stay in one of your city’s fine inns, instead of a nameless hotel. Trent in Colorado

Is your Bed and Breakfast a convenient location for Sugar Bowl lodging?

Yes, we are about 2 miles from the Superdome. A taxi ride is under $10 for two persons and it takes about 7 minutes to get there via surface streets.

Now that New Orleans has made it through the storm season without any problems, is the city going to be a good spot for the holidays do you think? Will the Sugar Bowl be back there again this year? Just wondering on the progress. Russell-Colorado
