The New Orleans Marriott Offers Cool Rates as Summer Events Heat Up

The Big Easy Responds to the Rising Mercury With Food Festivals, Concerts and Events Only New Orleans Could Dream Up

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- With its longstanding traditions of music, food and architecture, not to mention the fact that it can throw a party like no one else, New Orleans is a year-round destination everyone should visit at least once. The New Orleans Marriott is doing its part to introduce visitors to NOLA's many charms this summer. Offering deep discounts in the coming months, the hotel is enticing travelers to discover the only thing hotter than the temperatures: New Orleans' calendar of events.

As one of the best French Quarter hotel deals around, the property's Summer Savings promotion offers a 20-percent discount on room rates for stays between June 15 and September 15, 2014. (Reservations must be made by June 30.) That means rates start at just $95 per night in one of the world's most exciting cities.

The hotel's convenient location positions guests near everything they want to see, whether it's a food festival or the Running of the Bulls, NOLA-style. While being chased by roller-derby girls armed with foam bats may not appeal to everyone (and if it does, the San Fermin in Nueva Orleans happens July 10 to 13 this year), most people can get onboard with the city's wide range of gastronomic parties, while Oyster Fest (May 31 to June 1), the Creole Tomato Festival (June 7 and 8) and Tales of the Cocktail (July 17 to 21) embrace what New Orleans does best: eat and drink with gusto.

But there are plenty of other reasons to book a room at this New Orleans hotel near Bourbon Street this summer. Both the Cajun Zydeco Festival (June 14 and 15) and the Essence Festival (July 3 to 6) tap the Big Easy's love of good music and feature performers like Prince and Janelle Monae. Art lovers with a flair for fashion shouldn't miss White Linen Night and Dirty Linen Night (August 2 and 9) when they can don their best white linen ensembles to tour Julia Street in the Arts District and then dredge up those same outfits for Dirty Linen Night's foray down Royal Street.

No matter what brings visitors to town, their hotel experience is bound be as unforgettable as the events they join in. Towering over the Mississippi River, this hotel incorporates award-winning dining and 80,000 square feet of event space that live up to the city's reputation for grandeur. With 1,329 luxurious French Quarter hotel suites and guest rooms ready to welcome guests, this property promises one cool retreat from the pulsating city below.

To book the Summer Savings package, travelers may use the promotional code BAR when making reservations.
