From the Airport:
For getting to The Quisby from the airport, we recommend a taxi. The rate is $36 for one or two people, and $15 per person for three or more. There is a taxi stand right outside the baggage claim area. A taxi takes around 30 minutes.
If you are traveling alone and want to save a little money, you can take the Airport Shuttle. The cost is $24 each way or $44 for a round trip. This usually takes between one hour and 90 minutes each way. The shuttle needs to be reserved at least 24 hours in advance through their website.
If you’re on a budget, you can take the Jefferson Transit E2 Bus to downtown. This bus is available Monday through Friday from 05:37 to 18:14. Another option (your only option if you arrive on a weekend) is the NORTA 202 Bus (see below) although it runs much less frequently. Buses pickup from upstairs near the arrivals area. The cost is $2. It drops you off at the corner of Tulane Ave and Loyola Ave. From Tulane and Loyola you can walk, which takes about 25 minutes, or transfer to the St. Charles Ave Streetcar. To walk, go down Tulane Ave towards the river. After one block it becomes Common St, keep walking for another 4 blocks. Once you get to St. Charles Ave, turn right onto St. Charles Ave and walk one mile until you reach the Quisby, 1225 St. Charles Ave, located on St. Charles Ave between Clio St and Erato St. To take the streetcar, follow the same directions but stop walking when you reach St. Charles Ave. The Streetcar stop is in front of the Royal St. Charles Hotel. They run 24 hours a day (but less frequently at night than during the day). You will get off at Erato Street, approximately 6 stops.
If your flight arrives on a Saturday or Sunday, you can catch the NORTA 202 Bus from the Airport to Union Passenger Terminal. Buses pickup from upstairs near the arrivals area. The 202 bus runs every day at 06:10, 06:30, 07:30, 08:00, 14:10, 15:50, 17:00, and 19:00. The cost is $1.25. For directions from Union Passenger Terminal to The Quisby, see below.
From Union Train Station:
Walk down Howard Avenue 4 blocks to Lee Circle. At Lee Circle, take a right onto St. Charles Avenue and walk 3 blocks to arrive at our front door.
New Orleans is a walking city so we do not recommend renting a car if you are flying in. However, if you are driving in, you can reach us by taking the Carondelet Street Exit from I-10 and then turning right at St. Charles Ave. After one block, you will see us on your right. We do not offer parking. Free street parking is available nearby but it is up to you to observe posted signs to avoid being ticketed or towed. There are also paid lots located nearby. The front desk can provide additional information if needed..
Over a dozen famous restaurants and bars are located within a half mile including Avenue Pub, Circle Bar, and Emiril's Delmonico. We are steps from the WWII Museum, The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the Contemporary Arts Center. The Dryades Public Market grocery store is a short walk from us. The French Quarter is less than one mile away. The St. Charles Ave Streetcar stops 100 feet from our front door. During Mardi Gras, the parades pass by our front door.
