La Belle Esplanade is not another hotel.  La Belle Esplanade is better, located in the 2200 block of Esplanade Avenue.  When you visit New Orleans, you'll be tempted to stay in the French Quarter.  You can do that, but there is a whole wide, wonderful and interesting city outside the French Quarter.  It's the part of New Orleans where the city's culture is made and embellished.  If you want to explore the real New Orleans the way it's experienced by the people who live here, La Belle Esplanade is your best bet.  La Belle Esplanade's lobby is home to The New Orleans Odditarium, a real museum with its own website.
