A trip to New Orleans would not be complete without experiencing the joie de vivre of the famed French Quarter, the cultural center of this city. The Westin New Orleans Canal Place, French Quarter is perfectly located just steps from French Quarter, putting the charm, history and culture of this iconic part of town at your disposal, while offering you a calm refuge from the famed boisterousness.
The French Quarter, called Vieux Carre by locals, is the oldest neighborhood in the city, and the most celebrated. Stroll the streets to explore a vast variety of amazing restaurants, lively bars and nightclubs, museums and galleries and more.
Enjoy the local cuisine - from beignets with your coffee in the morning to creole crawfish etouffee at dinner - in the gourmet restaurants that abound in the quarter. The sounds of jazz, zydeco and R&B fill the streets day and night and will keep your toes tapping as you explore. Take in the architectural details from the ornate ironwork to the double story balconies on your own, or ask our concierge to arrange a walking tour for you. Start the day empty-handed to prepare for interesting and unique shops, from perfumeries to indie booksellers, custom hat shops to voodoo vendors, and of course the upscale shopping of the Shops at Canal Place located right beneath our French Quarter hotel.
Allez, laissez les bon temps rouler, book your stay at our French Quarter hotel now and check out other things to do in New Orleans.
