Location is king at the InterContinental New Orleans. Travelers, conventiongoers and businesspeople alike prefer the InterContinental for its Central Business District address that's still a short walk to the French Quarter. The hotel’s St. Charles Street location is right on the main route of the city’s Mardi Gras parade, one of the biggest and most popular celebrations in the Big Easy. 

The hotel itself is spacious and up to date after a $26 million renovation of the property in 2014. The new decor is a mashup of Old World infused with modern-day tastes, where dark woods and richly patterned carpeting mesh with contemporary-style chairs and desks. Rooms also feature 42" flat-panel TVs, Keurig coffee makers, rainfall showerheads in the bathroom and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout. Mardi Gras festivalgoers should know that many Balcony rooms have front-row parade viewing in February.

The hotel also has an outdoor rooftop pool on the 15th floor (one of the best in New Orleans, per Oyster.com) as well as a fitness center; guests can also arrange for private car service or even babysitting. The hotel's main restaurant, Trenasse, features Gulf Coast cuisine with plenty of fresh seafood and steaks; the Times-Picayune says the restaurant "dishes up comfort with confidence." For some more casual local flavor, try a wood-fired pizza or shrimp and grits at Pete’s Pub, which also serves a breakfast buffet with made-to-order omelets. 

Other major city attractions are also within a few minutes' walk from this hotel, and the St. Charles streetcar runs right in front of the hotel. The French Quarter's jazz clubs, restaurants and bars are a couple of blocks west; you can walk over to Bourbon Street in less than 10 minutes.

The bed was very comfortable and the noise level was super quiet for a hotel in New Orleans! The shower did not drain properly but that is the only thing I can say that I would improve on. The staff was amazing and we will definitely stay at this hotel again if we go back to NO.
