Gay New Orleans

New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

No one needs to be reminded about the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 on this beautiful, historic and one of a kind crazy city. But as each month passes, New Orleans, the “Big Easy” is rebuilding and reenergizing as never before.

The most celebrated and historic core of the city, including the Faubourg Marigny, French Quarter, Central Business District, Warehouse and Arts District, Magazine Street, Garden District, Audubon Park and Zoo and St. Charles Avenue is thriving.

For the best in gay and lesbian accommodation, head for the French Quarter. The French Quarter is the heart and soul of old New Orleans. The Vieux Carreor "Old Square" is one of this country's most beautiful and historic locations. This is, by far, the best and most popular place to stay in New Orleans. You can choose from intimate gay and gay friendly Creole cottages, guesthouses, apartments, posh hotels and gay owner occupied and operated boutique bed and breakfasts.

The Faubourg Marigny, adjacent to the French Quarter, is a parcel of land originally owned by Bernard Marigny, one of the city's more colorful historic characters. Today Marigny and the Bywater area (adjacent to the Marigny) is the quiet gay neighborhood of the city and a colorful, mostly residential area boasting a huge gay presence, a number of trendy restaurants, coffee shops and clubs. Many of the gay-friendly bed and breakfasts are located here, as well as several gay bars including the Phoenix, Cowpokes, Matrixxx, Chet's, Big Daddy's, Friendly Bar and The Country Club, plus the “gay restaurant of the year” the Bywater Bar.B.Que/Lorenzo's. The Barn Theater, home of the Drama Theater Company, and the Lesbian and Gay Community Center of New Orleans are also located in the area.

The proximity of Frenchmen St and its restaurants and music clubs make it a prime destination for the gay and lesbian traveler. Many gay and lesbian travelers consider Marigny to be a bohemian extension of the French Quarter, increasingly becoming the neighborhood of choice for writers, painters, musicians, street entertainers and artists.

The Garden District is located "Uptown." There are many beautiful bed and breakfasts and hotels located here and the St. Charles Street car line makes this a convenient neighborhood to stay. So if you prefer a "quiet" vacation without all the distractions of nightlife and all that other stuff, the Garden District is for you.

The Central Business District or "CBD" is where you'll find most of the major hotel chains. Some of these hotels border the French Quarter and can be quite convenient. In addition, if you prefer staying in a large hotel, this location might be your best choice.

Today, Laissez les bons temps rouler, let the good times roll, is more than a reminder of New Orleans’ French heritage; it’s a way of life that began three centuries ago.

Like a diamond, New Orleans has many facets. It is a city full of eccentricities, born from a rich heritage. European traditions blend with Caribbean flare. Haitian and African Creoles developed the exotic, spicy cuisine and the music now called jazz. Architecture, food, music, traditions, history and culture combine to create a unique destination for the gay and lesbian traveler.

So, for he gay and lesbian traveler looking for a truly unique, historic, vibrant, sassy, exotic and one of a kind destination that continues to amaze and inspire, then New Orleans, Louisiana has it all.
