Right in the center of revitalized New Orleans, this casino hotel offers stylish accommodations with extravagant views of the Mississippi River and downtown skyline. But it's the 115,000-square-foot casino that's the real draw here. Not only does it have 24-hour gambling (poker, slots, roulette, baccarat and fortune pai gow), it has a lively theme: Mardi Gras. So prepare yourself for round-the-clock revelry, whether you're rolling the dice, dining at Besh Steak or heading out to Bourbon Street, which is a short stroll away. Additional diversions range from the nearby historic Warehouse Arts District to on-site Masquerade nightclub, featuring an ice bar and Ultra VIP Lounge.
