The Troubadour is one of the newest hotels close to French Quarter fun and activities.
The Troubadour is located right on the edge of the Central Business District, only a 15-minute walk from the hotel’s doorsteps to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. Bourbon Street itself is lined with an almost endless number of bars, restaurants, and tourist shops that make for a fun-filled evening. Royal Street, running parallel to Bourbon Street, offers a wide range of antique shops, clothing stores, and locally made art and jewelry boutiques. When in the French Quarter, make sure to visit the immaculate St. Louis Cathedral. Nearby, you can experience the world-famous beignets and chicory coffee at Cafe du Monde!

The hotel is also only a 10-minute walk from the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line that goes towards the Garden District and Uptown neighborhoods. Once you’ve toured the French Quarter, hop on the streetcar and take it to Washington Avenue where you’ll be able to visit popular tourist attractions like Lafayette Cemetery and Magazine Street, which is another great area for shopping and dining.
