The Higgins Hotel and Conference Center, adjacent to the number one visitor attraction in New Orleans, The National World War II Museum, is offering travel advisors a year-round discount.
This discount is up to 20 percent of the prevailing room rate and in December, July, August and September, is a full 50 percent off the prevailing room rate, based on availability.
You’ll be asked to present your TA ID at the desk upon arrival. An added bonus is during the month of December, you’ll get a welcome kit from Visit New Orleans, the city’s convention and visitors bureau, that includes a variety of great discounts on attractions.
This 230-room Art Deco style hotel is set in the Arts and Warehouse District near the French Quarter. It offers four dining outlets including a rooftop bar.
It is the first hotel in the state of Louisiana to be part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, and all proceeds generated will support the ongoing educational mission of the National World War II Museum.
Upon entry, guests are transported back in time with photos depicting life in New Orleans during the war, and custom acrylic prints of the Medal of Honor, the highest award given to US service members. Guests’ eyes are then drawn to the grand chandelier and the lobby’s centerpiece, a mural by celebrated Art Deco Artist Michael Kungl depicting wartime factory workers set on the backdrop of the New Orleans skyline.
Just off the lobby lies a bronze staircase, complemented by handmade glass recreations of 40 of the most commonly awarded medals and ribbons of World War II. Throughout the hotel, guests enjoy a truly immersive experience by discovering additional nods to the time period, including preserved letters from the war and rare, colorized photos displaying diverse service members contributing to the wartime effort.
