cost of taxi?

Can anyone tell me if cost of a taxi to Embassy Motel from airport is $33.oo per person or includes two passangers? Thanks so much - hotel is approximately 3 blocks from convention center.

Embassy Motel? The $33 flat fee is for one or two people. If you have 3 or more it is $14 a person, ($42 for 3 people).

Thanks so much - I wasn't sure to do a taxi or shuttle - we'll go with the taxi.

I'll add to the "Embassy Motel?" question. Are you staying at the Embassy Suites?

Even though it's a flat rate from the airport, you would still want to avoid confusion in telling the cab driver where you're headed. A request for the "Embassy Motel" is going to cause some confusion, since there isn't one in New Orleans as far as I know.

Thank you - it is the Embassy Suites - I'm still not sure what flat rate means - I have always rented a car upon arrival - anyway there are two of us and I was trying to figure out if it would be less expensive taking a taxi or doing the round trip shuttle.

Appreciate any info

Don 't do the shuttle. Flat rate means a flat charge. No meter. Everyone pays the same amount. The amounts are above in response # 1. (Don't forget to add a tip)
