Hi there! I wanted to ask how safe is the area and How far away is the French market from the hotel? This will be our first trip to New Orleans and We just want to make sure will be safe staying here in this hotel and To walk around town without having to worry looking over our shoulders every second of the day/night. Thanks
The French Quarter is just two blocks from the hotel and the French Market is about six blocks - I personally feel very safe walking around the area, certainly during the day, its a busy area with lots of foot traffic. Late at night, it is always wise to be very cautious, here as in any tourist city. I think you will be very comfortable. We have a concierge desk and they will be very pleased to give you directions and assistance. We look forward to making your first visit to New Orleans spectacular!!! See you soon, Kathleen Young, GM
