We upgraded from an RV kitchen table to The InterContinental New Orleans

On one trip to New Orleans to attend JazzFest, we slept on a converted kitchen table in an RV. I thought about that trip as I sunk into the luxurious linens in the bed of our suite at the InterContinental New Orleans where we stayed recently for another trip to JazzFest. This is better, I thought.

The InterContinental has 484 rooms, rooftop pool and two restaurants. The location, just a few blocks from Canal Street, is perfect for walking to Jackson Square, the Mississippi River and attractions like The National World War II Museum. The street car is steps away.
