Rare Saint Greg Posted September 4, 2017 #376 Share Posted September 4, 2017 Saint Greg.....I have read the first couple of pages of this thread then jumped to page 18 to finish the read. YOU seem to be the "go to" guy regarding hotels on the past few pages. I don't do any of the online hotel sites, but I am very interested in a hotel close to the pier that the Carnival Dream will be. We will fly in the day before the cruise and not renting a car. The streetcar interests me for a tour around the area, but I am hoping that Carnival will offer a tour after the cruise on the way to the airport. I think that the Hilton Garden Inn Convention Center or the Renaissance New Orleans might fit, what do you think?? Thank you for your help. We will be flying in on June 2, 2018. My recommendation would be Hilton Riverside. It's a super nice hotel. There's a streetcar stop right outside that will take you to the french quarter. There's a nice seafood restaurant (drago's) right in the hotel. The hotel is connected to the riverwalk mall..and you can actually get to the cruise port by walking through the mall. I believe they also have a shuttle service to/from the airport for a fee. I'm not sure where it stacks up against cab, uber, lyft prices...may or may not be worth it. If you are interested in Riverside you can get it on hotwire for $105 for your night. It's the 4* French Quarter/Mississippi River hotel with 90% recommendation. The convention center hotels would be fine but you'd have to actually walk a few blocks to get to a streetcar stop to go anywhere. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
