All reservations require a deposit of the first night’s room rent and tax at the time of booking, and will have a 14 day cancellation policy, as well as your chosen nightly minimum. Unused rooms from our block will be released in two tiers, 50 % of any remaining rooms will be dropped, the full block release date early Summer.  Unused rooms are dropped automatically on these dates at no penalty to us. If after the first drop date we have filled all remaining rooms, extra rooms at nearby Lamothe House, will be available at the discounted rate.

Feel free to stay an extra day or two if you can. We will be there Friday through Monday! A clothing-required pool is available at the Lamothe House located on Esplanade, just 3 short blocks aways. We would like to fill the Inn on Ursalines with lots of hot rubbermen, so we suggest sharing your room with friends! The Forum on RubberZone, Recon, or Fetlife are ways to find a roommate, after your room is booked.  We recommend booking early as rooms in April in New Orleans fill up fairly fast! The Crescent city is back and more popular than ever!

Alternate Accommodations

When we fill all the rooms at the Host Inn, the Management has several additional Guest Houses, all within 3-5 short blocks and within the French Quarter. They will book you at the correct location or you may choose among numerous other excellent locations close by. If you have any additional questions about alternate accommodation sites, please contact us directly by email.


If you are driving, please be aware that Parking is limited. Street Parking is available in the Marigny neighborhood at your own risk but Follow Street Sign Instructions! The Management has a gated lot 3 blocks away at $20 per night.  Additional parking sites are available nearby.
