We returned last week from Mardi Gras and it was exceptional! We stayed at the Omni Royal Orleans and had a balcony room. Lovely as always....the hotel was a peaceful escape from the fun on the street. They were only about half staffed but still provided the best of service. All employees were so friendly and welcoming.
We loved the parades...the ZULUS were spectacular and priceless! Soulful Warriers indeed! The party on the street was amusing as could be and the local political costuming was great! It was an incredible event for the tourists and the locals.....so glad we came for this Mardi Gras......it had been 9 years since we came for the Carnival.....it will not be that long ever again. New Orleans has a great history and will be restored. The people are so special....we enjoyed them all.
Thank you New Orleans.....I hope the next administration is more responsive to helping the city rebuild and keeping it preserved!
