Covington LA is one of the best kept secrets in the New Orleans area. Just a short drive (26 miles) across the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway from New Orleans on the North Shore. A great place to base from and see the area without having to stay in the squalor of Bourbon Street. Many folks that work in NO live here for that reason. The Hilton Garden Inn is just a few miles north of the Lake on I12. This is a newly developed area full of reasonably priced new hotels. Most of the hotels are 2.5-3 star. Any would be fine but the HGI is a little better value. We got reservations bidding on Priceline and have stayed at other hotels nearby the same way. The hotel and rooms are immaculate, the front desk folks are extremely helpful and the facility has everything you would expect.
If needed there is every convenience you need a short distance by car and parking is ample. There is even a Safari Park a few miles away to tour by jeep and hand feed giraffes, camels, exotic antelope, buffalo, etc.
The Hilton Garden Inn Covington is just what you would expect it should be at a great price.
