During Mardi Gras, it’s best to plan your route to the hotel in advance. There will be a hard closure of Bourbon Street and soft barricades throughout the French Quarter. These barricades will be manned by police as you approach the French Quarter. Bourbon Street will be hard closed to vehicular traffic from approximately 5pm-5am and you will not be able to cross under any circumstance. Street closures may change without notice.
Once you encounter a soft barricade, you will need to identify yourself as a guest of the Wyndham New Orleans - French Quarter and you will be granted access to the hotel. We recommend carrying with you a copy of your confirmation letter for identification to expedite the process.
Suggested routes to the hotel:
Before 5pm take Iberville Street to Royal Street then turn right on to Royal Street. The hotel will be on your left hand side 124 Royal St.
After 5pm Royal Street will be the only access into the French Quarter. From Esplanade you will take Royal Street. Esplanade runs perpendicular to Royal St.
Please note the New Orleans Police Department reserves the right to open and close streets during Mardi Gras. We are looking forward to your visit and if we can be of any assistance, please reach out to us at 504-529-7211.
