Travel challenge: New Orleans
Friday 16 August 2013
Each week we invite three companies to offer their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a city break in New Orleans. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Each package includes five nights' accommodation and United Airlines flights from Heathrow via Washington on Saturday, 21 September (returning via Houston).
Includes flights and room-only accommodation at the Blake Hotel, with car hire. "The Blake Hotel is ideally located in the heart of the French Quarter providing holidaymakers with a great base from which to explore the city's main attractions," says Andrea Noble (0844 557 3859; virginholidays.co.uk).
Includes flights and B&B accommodation at the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown. "This charming hotel is located in the heart of the Downtown area – just two blocks from the historic French Quarter, and one block from Bourbon Street in a turn-of-the-century warehouse," says Alberto Boeri (0843 636 4509; americansky.co.uk).
Includes flights and room only at the Provincial Hotel, plus a walking tour of the French Quarter, a Steamboat Jazz Cruise on the Mississippi, a Cajun cookery class and a trip to the Oak Alley Plantation Home. "New Orleans is an intoxicating city, with an irresistible charm, history and atmosphere," says Karen Niven (0800 316 0194; bon-voyage.co.uk).
