I had the pleasure of staying here during Mardi Gras 2013. You couldn't ask for a better place to experience Mardi Gras. The hotel is located RIGHT on the parade route at Lee Circle. I mean the parades passed right in front of the hotel. They have have their own grand stands next to the hotel. Everything I wanted was right there. A restaurant, concessions selling drinks and food outside, TWO bars and the added convenience of restrooms and my guest room was just steps away. It is the BEST way to watch the parade with all of the amenities one needs. No lines at bars, bathrooms, food stands etc. A huge plus is if your room faces Lee Circle you can watch the parade from your window if you don't want to fight the crowds. Its a hidden gem in New Orleans during Carnival season. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and Bellocq and Tivoli & Lee had the BEST drinks around.
