Travel Tips

One destination synonymous with food culture, fun cocktails and nightlife is New Orleans. Just mentioning the French Creole-influenced city elicits some foodie feelings you’ll want to explore. Double up on rooms and make it a family trip to really reap the benefits of hotel deals.

Hilton offers a Taste of New Orleans package perfect for families looking for an open itinerary to explore. The package includes 50 percent off parking prices for those driving or renting a car, a free welcome cocktail at check-in and a long list of discounts offered at local eateries.

The deep discounts encourage some healthy culinary exploring. Enjoy a night out with 20 percent off at SHAYA, James Beard-award-winning Israeli cuisine, or bring the kids to Domenica and Pizza Domenica for Italian.

Take advantage with 20 percent off family dining at restaurants including LUKE, Johnny Sanchex, Willa Jean, Borgne, Palace Café, Bourbon House, Tableau and Restaurant August. Try fresh seafood at Borgne, sweets from Wila Jean and classic Creole at Palace Café.

Don’t feel like going at it alone? Book a Doctor Gumbo Tour with your 20 percent off discount and a critically acclaimed foodie tour through the city.
