The New Orleans Hotel Collection Launches Papa Noel Room Rate Specials for the City's Christmas New Orleans Style Festival in December

NEW ORLEANS, LA - October 12, 2011 - New Orleans during the holidays is like no other. For 31 days beginning November 29, feasts and finery await visitors in every corner of town.  From a string of gospel performances at St. Louis Cathedral, to abundant reveillon menus at the finest restaurants, to strolling characters dressed in historic holiday garb in the French Quarter, the Christmas New Orleans Style festival is truly a unique city-wide celebration.  

The New Orleans Hotel Collection, featuring seven fine hotels throughout the city, has launched a variety of festival hotel specials including an exceptional "Papa Noel" room rate offer available for stays from November 29 to December 29, 2011.   A comfortable, deluxe room with luxurious queen or king bedding can be had at any Collection hotel starting from $89 on selected dates during the week, and from $129 on weekends.  Balcony suite rooms start as low as $159.  All rates are per room, per night, plus applicable taxes and based upon availability.

To reserve the "Papa Noel" room rate special, visit and use promo code "Papa Noel" when making reservations, or call 855-798-6642 and ask for the "Papa Noel" rate.

In the spirit of the season, two New Orleans Hotel Collection restaurants will offer reveillon menus, an incredible value of multi-course holiday style meals at extremely reasonable rates.  Seasonal foods and traditional favorites such as Oyster Gumbo, Savory Muscovy Duck and Acadian Evangeline Pie will be prominent features of this old fashioned French meal tradition.

Other hotel package offerings from The New Orleans Hotel Collection include the "Gas-n-Go" package, specially created for visitors driving into the city.  The package includes up to a $29 rebate to the guest's room account with a two night stay, simply with the presentation of the gas receipt at check-in.   In addition, the "Mardi Gras World" package, available at all Collection hotels with overnight accommodations, includes transportation shuttle and entry for two to the famous Blaine Kern Mardi Gras World Showrooms complete with a video tour, a visit to the workshops, and a warehouse viewing of the famous Mardi Gras parade floats such as Orpheus's "Smoky Mary" and Bacchus's "Bacchagator." The Mardi Gras Warehouse is decorated for Christmas from Thanksgiving to New Year.

Travelers can find details on all package offerings at, or by calling call 855-798-6642 to speak with a hotel reservations agent.

For over 20 years, French Quarter hotels have been partnering with the French Quarter Festival Inc., originators of the Christmas New Orleans Style festival, to provide visitors a wide range of options during this very special festival. Many activities will take place in hotel lobbies - or close by - in locations throughout the city's historic district.  Festival activities coincide with some of the most exciting and unique boutique shopping experiences found only in the French Quarter.
