Close to Everything
It's been said that the French Quarter begins at the Hotel de la Monnaie. Arnaud's, Galatoire's, Brennan's, Antoine's, Café du Monde, and other renowned restaurants are a short walk away. Jackson Square, the majestic St. Louis Cathedral, Le Petit Theatre, the Presbytere and Cabildo, and the French Market are all in easy walking distance, as are the Steamboat Natchez, world-famous Bourbon Street and the exciting Frenchmen music corridor. And, the Riverfront Streetcar, which boards just across the street, provides easy access to Vieux Carre shops and galleries, Jax Brewery, Canal Place, Riverwalk, the Aquarium/IMAX, Insectarium and Convention Center.
Rare antiques, eclectic shops and galleries, historic homes, classic architecture, cuisine and music... all yours to enjoy during your Hotel de la Monnaie stay.
