As we proudly celebrated In-Room Plus’s 30th anniversary last fall, we looked back on how precious and rare a milestone three decades in business truly is. That gives us an even larger appreciation for the magnitude of New Orleans’ own 2018 milestone: the city’s tricentennial–that’s 300 years!
NoLa is a place close to our hearts, as In-Room Plus founder Wanda (the current owners’ mother) was born and raised in the area; in fact, many extended family members still reside throughout Louisiana and Mississippi. So as we mark our respective milestones, there’s no better time for the city’s close-up as the next installment of our #Citygram blog series, which showcases some of our favorite recent posts from select In-Room Plus clients with each property’s swoon-worthy Instagram snaps.
We dare you to resist the urge to head south to the Big Easy’s incredible restaurants (from Cafe du Monde beignets to Michelin star cuisine), history, culture (we recommend the cemetery tours and second line parades!) and fiercely independent energy. Once there, here are four great places to stay:
