Join us for Christmas New Orleans Style this December! We may not have snow but many things twinkle land delight in the Crescent City for the holidays, and special Papa Noel New Orleans rates at our Garden District bed and breakfast all month long!
New this year, LUNA Fête 2014 will feature the city’s architecture as the canvas for large-scale, awe-inspiring outdoor light installations across the city. Starting November 30 downtown at the historic Greek Revival Gallier Hall.
Catch even more holiday lights at the Roosevelt Hotel on Canal Street, and our annual favorite: Celebration in the Oaks in City Park. Traditionally opening the day after Thanksgiving, you’ll enjoy walking and driving through the light displays in the botanical gardens, the train garden as well as the musical events and entertainment for kids.

Interact with people from New Orleans’ colorful history each weekend.
Reveillon Dinners are a Creole tradition from the 1800’s to “wake up” with a dinner following midnight mass.
