In Response to New Travel Trends, the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center Introduces a Cruise-Centric Package
NEW ORLEANS, LA -- (Marketwired) -- There are many reasons why a cruise makes an attractive vacation. In addition to onboard entertainment and traveling the seas, however, is the growing trend among passengers to spend a few days in the port city before or after the cruise. And for those taking what is essentially a second vacation in New Orleans, the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center has the perfect package to get the most out of those pre- or post-cruise days: Its Bon Voyage Cruise Package.
Located among hotels near the Port of New Orleans, this property resides across the street from where guests get on and off the cruise ships, making its Bon Voyage Cruise Package especially convenient. Guests who book the package enjoy secure valet parking at a discounted rate of just $15 per day during their stay and for five days while at sea.
With the car safely stowed away, guests are free to enjoy the package's other perk -- two complimentary welcome cocktails -- before visiting the many attractions nearby this Port of New Orleans hotel.
According to the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Bon Voyage Cruise Package is on trend. No less than 85% of cruise passengers stayed overnight in NOLA either before or after their trips, an uptick in overnight stays in New Orleans.
Of course, thanks to the savings afforded by this Downtown New Orleans hotel deal, visitors will be able to see and do even more while in The Big Easy. The typical cruise party spends two nights in New Orleans, which is plenty of time to see the sights surrounding this hotel near the New Orleans Convention Center. Shopping at the Riverwalk Outlets, culture at the New Orleans Museum of Art, history at the National WWII Museum and penguins, parakeets and more at the Audubon Aquarium of Americas intrigue travelers by day. And at night, the French Quarter and Bourbon Street promise a raucous good time.
Rates for the Bon Voyage Cruise Package start at $119 per night. Guests may secure the promotion, which is available Thursdays through Sundays through September 26, 2015, by using the promotional code QZR when making reservations online or by phone at 1-800-228-9290.
