New Orleans - Omni Royal Orleans

This program includes 6.0 hours of content intended to meet the MATE Act requirements.

Experience the city from Omni Royal Orleans, which boasts convenient access to the French Quarter as well as other buzzing neighborhoods like Treme-Lafitte. Housed on St. Louis at Royal, this New Orleans property is situated near everything from world-class bites (including the hotel’s Zagat-rated Rib Room and the famous Café du Monde) to the live music that made the Big Easy famous. Start off your visit with a walk over to Café du Monde, the famed eatery known for its beignets and café au laits. Or, dig into breakfast at Oceana Grill, which boasts real French toast and country-style breakfasts for some heartier fare. From there, head to Canal Place and take the elevator for one of the best views of the Mississippi River. After taking in the vista, explore the shops for a while, or head to Audubon Aquarium and Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. A must for families, the aquarium provides the opportunity to touch a stingray or marvel at the center’s tarpons and sharks. Kids, in particular, will enjoy the insectarium, which houses thousands of butterflies in a beautiful Asian garden. Round out your evening by visiting one of the French Quarter’s numerous music venues. Preservation Hall is nearby and an absolute must for jazz lovers. Also within walking distance is 21st Amendment at La Louisiane, another hot spot for jazz, as well as cocktails.
