Visiting New Orleans For the First Time

If you’re heading to the Cresent City for the first time, you’ll find that there’s no shortage of things to do. There are apartments available throughout the city, and many of them are within walking distance of some great attractions. Whether you go for a bed and breakfast in the Garden District or decide to stay in the French Quarter so that you can be closer to the action, you’re sure to enjoy your visit.

Take a Tour

This city has an amazing history, and you can learn more about it through various tours. There are several famous plantations homes along the Mississippi and in the nearby areas, including the famous Nottoway plantation home. If you don’t want to deal with the 1.5 hour drive, then make a quick trip over to the Longue Vue House and Gardens. Other tours that are worth taking include the Voodoo Bone Lady Haunted Tours and walking tours of the cemeteries. You’ll find a little bit of history waiting for you around every corner in this fascinating city.

Shopping on Royal Street

With a courtyard apartment in the French Quarter, you can step out your front door and enjoy some great shopping and sightseeing. New Orleans is famous for their beignets, so start by having breakfast at the Café Du Monde. Then spend your day, or even a few days, traveling through the amazing shops on Royal Street. While this road doesn’t have the fame of Bourbon Street, it does have an incredible collection of shops that you won’t find anywhere else. Most of these businesses close down the week of Mardi Gras, so you’ll want to play your trip around the carnival is shopping is your main priority. You’ll be impressed with the collection of art, antiques, and unique little collectibles.

Rest and Relaxation in the Garden District

One of the most beautiful parts of the city, the Garden District is a family-friendly area that people of all ages enjoy. You’ll have easy access to fine dining and shopping. You’ll also be able to take in some of the most amazing architecture in the city. You can easily spend a day just walking down the street looking at the incredible homes, and then stop in at the Commander’s Palace for an exquisite meal. As evening falls, you can head over to Le Bon Temps Roule for live music and an eclectic group of patrons.

April to November for the Best Weather

Temperatures can drop in December, January, and February, so most people only travel to the city during this time if they’re interested in the Mardi Gras festivities. If you’re more interested in seeing the sights and taking in the local history, then you’ll want to come in the spring or fall. April, May, September, and October typically have temperatures in the 70s, and the sun is still shining. The wettest time is from June to September, so be sure to pack your gear if you decide to travel then.

Getting Around in New Orleans

You can fly into the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport if you’re coming from the other side of the country. However, most people from across the southern part of the country choose to simply drive through the bayou to the Crescent City. Once you’re in the city, you can rent a car to get around and see all the sights. Be sure to look up the streetcar schedule so that you can take in the Big Easy at a slightly slower, and more enjoyable, pace.

It was very near the trolley making it easy to go any and everywhere. The homes just around the corner from the property were beautiful! I would rent from Tom again and plan to at some of his other properties in other states, as we plan our next vacation.

The apartment was brand-spanking new--which meant everything was impeccably clean and looked exactly like the photos in the listing. Don't be fooled by the street, which has inevitably been torn apart by hurricanes and construction efforts. The interior boasts modern features with historic charm. Utilizing the original exposed brick was an ingenious way to connect the old with the new. The kitchen was fully stocked with all of the accessories, plates, etc. that you could possibly need. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms were stunning! I originally booked a 3-bedroom apartment, but received a call a month or so prior to our arrival denoting that the 3-bedroom apartments would not be ready in time for our arrival. They offered us two 2-bedroom apartments that were right across from each other, but we preferred that our group of ladies be together in one apartment. The woman who I spoke with told me that I would be receiving a confirmation email about this change, a check in the mail for the difference in price for the apartments, and a response to my request for an early check-in (my flight was arriving in New Orleans bright and early at 7am that morning). While I received a check in the mail shortly after that conversation, I never received an email about the change, nor did I get a response about my request for an early check-in. Fast forward to a week before we're supposed to arrive and I'm slightly concerned that I have yet to year back from anyone. I called the Stay Alfred corporate offices again and the CSR said that she would look into everything and that it would be no problem for me to have an early check-in since we would be the first people ever staying in that unit. The issues really began during when I believed I would be able to "check-in", aka using the code that was emailed to me to receive my key and enter my room. Turns out Stay Alfred still hadn't finished construction and cleaning the rooms. They were banking on using that morning to finish everything, remove all chemical smells from the hallways, and be done by 3pm. I'm not going to go into details, because that would take forever, but there was a CLEAR disconnect in communication from Stay Alfred corporate and local employees. Special shoutout to Vanisia for making up for corporate's clear lack of communication and follow-up. The employees at the local Stay Alfred office were more than accommodating!

The mattress is a bit soft. We ate at the Old College Inn, awesome food yet within walking distance. Would stay at Dublin again.
