Mardi Gras Hotel
Premier party season in New Orleans
Perhaps it's the anticipation of the merriment, the excitement of catching throws, the extravaganza of the parades, getting dressed up in costume, or going to a Ball -- but a frame of mind takes over the Big Easy and says "forget your problems and have fun!"
Mardi Gras officially starts at Twelfth Night, which occurs 12 days after Christmas on January 6th. There are several celebrations around the city, and it is a great day here at our Mardi Gras hotel in New Orleans. It means for us King Cake Lovers, that the bakeries around town will have King Cake for sale! Mardi Gras Day (which is also Fat Tuesday) is the last day of the Mardi Gras Carnival season. Mardi Gras day falls on a different day each year. It is always 46 days before Easter.
Tickets are available for parades February 22 - 28. The parades will pass directcly in front of the hotel. In addition to the noted parade, there may be a parade either preceding or following on the other side of Canal St. (across the “neutral ground”, or “median” as the rest of the country calls it), meaning it would not roll immediately in front of the stands.
We offer two ticket options; the first is for viewing stand access only, the second is for viewing stand plus the drink package. This will include an open bar in Pelican Lobby Bar, located inside the Sheraton New Orleans. The package includes well mixed drinks, house wines, domestic beers and soft drinks to begin one hour after the start of the parade and ending 30 minutes after the passing of the parade. The drink package privileges are nontransferable.
On Mardi Gras Day, we will have a special package for the Krewe of Rex! The Mardi Gras Day package includes access to the breakfast buffet, bloody mary’s & mimosas in Roux Bistro, located on the 2nd floor of the Sheraton New Orleans. You will also enjoy front row seats in our viewing stands as Mardi Gras comes to an end.
