Louisiana Hotel Reservations
Visiting Greater New Orleans
The Big Easy - The Greater New Orleans area is one of the most popular destinations in the US. Visit now and catch the ‘Zs’ at the new Zephyr Field in Metairie, fall brings football to the Louisiana Superdome and later the Hornets take the court at New Orleans Arena. Nearby, the streets of the French Quarter are always festive with visitor’s flocking to Cafe Du Monde or the Gumbo shop for a Crescent City food experience; shoppers fill Royal Street perusing antiques and galleries, or browsing trendy shops along the way; at all stops New Orleans architecture speaks of the city’s French and Spanish heritage.
Looking for a New Orleans hotel? With many options, Best Western hotels are proud to offer seven hotel locations in New Orleans, with additional locations in surrounding communities. North across Lake Pontchartrain the communities of Hammond, Covington and Slidell are also home to Best Western hotels.
Slidell and Covington are two of Louisiana’s Northshore communities. Slidell on the east end of St Tammany Parish is located amidst waterways, swamps and is home to friendly hospitality and a tree-lined historic Olde Town. October brings the Slidell Fall Street Fair to Second and Erlanger Streets in Olde Town. Over 150 vendors fill the streets October 30th along with stages featuring live entertainment, and a variety of food and drinks. Visit in November for the Arts Evening Festival, one of the region’s most anticipated cultural events. Browse the works of over 100 artists throughout the evening and continue the party at local Slidell restaurants with special “Arts Evening After Hours” festivities.
Covington, is a gateway to the piney hills of Louisiana Farm country north of town. On the banks of the Bogue Falaya River, Covington is a cultural gem of the Northshore. Host of the Covington Three Rivers Arts Festival, the streets of historic downtown Covington fill with more than 200 artists from across the country. Visit the 2011 festival November 12th and 13th. The 2011 St Tammany Parish Fair is hosted in Covington September 28th through October 1st – a Parish tradition with plenty of family fun.
South of New Orleans and the Mississippi River is the town of Harvey. A great alternative for travelers looking to stay outside the hustle and bustle of downtown New Orleans, Harvey hotels are less than 15 minutes from downtown. The Best Western hotel in Harvey is just south of the Westbank Expressway on Lapalco Boulevard. If you happen to be traveling on business at the Chevron or Conoco Phillips Plants, this Harvey hotel is a convenient location. Harvey is immediately north of Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base New Orleans in Belle Chasse. If a family visit takes you to NAS Belle Chasse, Harvey’s Best Western hotel makes convenient accommodations.
