Drury Inn & Suites
Set just outside of the French Quarter, this high-rise contemporary hotel puts you in walking distance from all kinds of kid-friendly attractions—including Jackson Square, the Riverwalk, and the Aquarium of the Americas. The St. Charles streetcar is also right next door. Feel like staying in? You can stretch out in your spacious room after a long day of exploring, or hit up the pool deck, where the pool and hot tub have a fantastic downtown view. Another plus: the free breakfast served every morning downstairs.
