We have rooms reserved with two hotels in the Uptown area, the Pontchartrain
Hotel, the Garden District Hampton Inn and the Avenue Plaza Hotel. They
are conveniently located near the chapel and reception, the Hampton Inn
is at 3626 St. Charles Avenue, Avenue Plaza is at 2111 St. Charles, and
The Pontchartrain is at 2031 St. Charles (next door to the Avenue Plaza).
This will make getting to the wedding and reception extremely easy because
you can take the Street Car that runs right in front of the hotels and not
have to worry about parking (there is no parking for the chapel or reception
except on the street).

Rooms are $89 per night (up to four people).
Located at 2031 St. Charles Ave, it features beautifully appointed suites
and the restaurant in the hotel is the original creator of the "Pontchartrain
Sauce". Their rates are USUALLY in the expensive range, but we have

yet, but they tell me that feature will be ready anytime now on their website
and they will let me know....
They will hold rooms until December 3rd. The nights I reserved are Wednesday
January 3rd thru Monday January 8th. January is convention season and unpredictable
as far as rooms go, so I recommend getting a hotel reserved ASAP. Last I
checked all three hotels still have rooms even though it is past the date.
