The next time you want to spend a holiday or relaxing weekend in New Orleans, head for our nearby hotels in Metairie, known as the Big Easy’s “first suburb.”
Guests at our Metairie accommodations can easily zoom into the “Fat City,” while also enjoying Metairie’s small-town feel. The Audubon Zoo and Aquarium of the Americas, Canal and Bourbon Streets, and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and New Orleans Arena are all a short distance from Metairie.
Our hotel staff members delight in trading tips with visiting sports buffs, who can watch the New Orleans Saints get fit for the season or catch local AAA team, the Zephyrs, at a home game. After getting inspired by the pros, try your own luck catching and throwing in popular Lafreniere Park, or stroll the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. At this lake north of Metairie, our hotel guests can score a claim to fame by taking the globe’s lengthiest bridge, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway.
Then, to relax after a great game or a brisk walk, check out the Lakeside Shopping Center, or meander down Metairie Road to get a sense of where the locals browse and hang out, before heading back to your hotel.
