If you like Thanksgiving, well, every day in New Orleans is like thanksgiving. We have plenty to be thankful for. If you like New Year’s Eve, well, every night is like New Year’s Eve. You won’t necessarily wake up with a hangover but you’ll be resolved to set out on a bigger and better next 365 days. If you like Valentine’s Day, well, there is plenty to love in New Orleans, this most romantic of cities, where love blooms eternally and, when you meet the one you love, there will be a lazily loping, swoony and crooning jazz ballad in the background when your eyes meet cheek to cheek.
Every day isn’t like Mardi Gras in New Orleans, there is only one Mardi Gras Day every year, but every day is like a holiday in New Orleans. La Belle Esplanade may as well be called Holiday Inn. Declare your New Orleans independence on this Indepence Day. Every day is Independence Day in New Orleans. Every day is revolutionary.
Unfortunately, the name Holiday Inn was taken when we opened up our boutique experience inn. The Holiday Inn Express in New Orleans is located in the Central Business District. It is as far removed from La Belle Esplanade as you can imagine, even thought it’s probably less than two miles away as the pelican flies.
Every day is a holiday in New Orleans.
