New Orleans is a very walkable city. A car is generally not necessary. Our location is perfect for walking as we are right on the border that separates the French Quarter from the Faubourg Marigny and Frenchmen Street.
We are one block from the Riverfront Streetcar and several bike rental shops, as well as on the RTA (Regional Transit Authority) routes for bus service. Uber cars and taxis are easily accessible as well.
Should you decide to drive, there is parking on Chartres Street (our side street) but it is first-come, first-serve, and it is limited and monitored (2-hour parking). Many guests park here temporarily while they unload and get checked in.
For longer-term parking, there are many lots within walking distance of The Lanaux Mansion. Most of them are pay-and-park, with costs ranging from $15 per night and up. Many are operated by Premium Parking; you can download their app to pay by credit card if you choose. Please note that while some lots are fenced, not all of them provide 24-hour security. To prevent break-ins, WE STRONGLY URGE YOU TO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR.
Secured parking may be found about six blocks from the mansion at the Place d’ Armes Hotel (625 St. Anne Street – about $45/night); there is also secure parking at the Royal Sonesta Hotel (300 Bourbon Street), and the Hotel Monteleone (214 Royal Street), but you’ll want to call to confirm rates and availability.
Many guests end up parking their cars and leaving them for the duration of their stay.
