New Orleans is a great destination for family travelers interested in a scary good time. Book a stay at Kimpton Hotel Fontenot as your home base for fall and Halloween fun.


Located in the city’s Central Business District, the hotel is steps away from the convention center and Superdome. The popular Warehouse District, home to many galleries and museums, is also nearby. Krewe of BOO! Parade, the city’s annual Halloween parade, passes by the hotel on Tchoupitoulas Street. The parade features spectacular floats with spooky props to delight and terrify revelers. The hotel hosts a variety of special Halloween events, including live music and specialty cocktails at its cocktail bar, Peacock Room. There are plenty of activities to enjoy throughout the city on Halloween, from trick-or-treating in the French Market District to going on a haunted walking tour.


Fall is a perfect time to visit Crescent City. Check out one of the city’s incredible fall festivals, including Tremé Fall Festival. Take advantage of the ideal fall temperatures to explore the city on foot or dine al fresco.


Bring your furry friend along to the pet-friendly hotel. The Pet Package includes a welcome drink for adults upon arrival, a welcome treat and a take-home gift for your pet, as well as an in-room pet bed and bowls.
