New Orleans Suburban Hotels

Hotels near New Orleans

Just 10 minutes from downtown New Orleans are Metairie and Gretna (Gretna is on the West Bank via the Crescent City Connection). Both are popular destinations for traveling families or anyone on a budget. All the national hotel chains you love and trust are right here. If you drove here, you won’t have pay overnight parking in Metairie or Gretna.

Business travelers like Metairie because it’s closer to the airport. On Veterans Memorial Boulevard – Metairie’s main drag – you’ll find literally hundreds of restaurants and shopping areas, including Lakeside, the area's biggest mall. With more than 120 shops including Macy’s, Dillard’s, Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma, this is where New Orleans shops. If you can’t find it on Vets, you can’t find it anywhere.

And Gretna is home to one of Louisiana’s largest National Historic Districts. The Gretna Historical Society Museum Complex includes the Kittie Strehle Home, the Louisiana State Fire Museum and the Gretna Green Blacksmith Shop.

Both Metairie and Gretna are popular places to stay during Mardi Gras, especially if you’re looking for family-friendly parades (you won’t have to cover your kid’s eyes here).
