Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.

  • Super interesting small museum, great for tourists and locals alike. Seems very popular, constantly holding classes and events. There's a nice little restaurant and bar attached, but I didn't visit due to the prices.
  • I love cooking, food, and history so I should have loved this experience but I did not. It all started with the restaurant. We were visiting NO from Atlanta. We were looking for the classic southern experience and had lots of it. We wanted to continue the party at where else... a southern food and beverage museum. We did not expect it to be the best and knew we were going to overpay for it but we wanted the all in one package...museum + food. The food was such a disappointment... it was so over done and was lacking in southern charm. I know we are in an era of hipster, artisanal cuisine but when you visit NO you want the classics. Bring on the sweet tea (they had none) and keep your aioli. We were super disappointed. We never shook off that disappointment and I am sure it affected how we saw the museum. The museum itself was just ok - if you are choosing between this place and another ... choose the other. This was not a must see.
  • I enjoyed the museum. There was an amazing history section on Popeye's chicken that was informative and interesting. There were items from Schwegmann's Supermarket that I hadn't seen in quite awhile. The large area dedicated to absinthe didn't pique my interest much and it was huge. The only gripe I have, which isn't large, was the several stands of other location's food history. This didn't just cover the south. We are known for our culture, especially food, I thought there would be more to offer. Maybe they are just starting this collection so I hope to see it grow. I think it would be a great museum to have for both locals and visitors.
  • This place is quite interesting. I think it's overcrowded. And it could use more placards and name cards.
  • Large collection of all sorts of items related to food - food sample, cans, bottles, scales, posters, furniture, stoves, grills ... you name it, they have it. Still in the end I was a bit underwhelmed. Still a nice place to visit for an hour or so, if you happen to be in that part of town. The adjoining restaurant has great food, albeit not exactly cheap.
