Sheraton New Orleans and Marriott New Orleans Offer Travel Packages for Carnival Season


NEW ORLEANS (press release) —There isn’t much that dampens the spirit of New Orleans, but a nearly two-year-long pandemic cast a prolonged pale over the city’s normal joie de vivre when it comes to annual festivals and events. It’s time to let the good times roll once again—starting with Twelfth Night, which marks the end of Christmas and officially signals the start of Carnival season in the Big Easy.

The Sheraton New Orleans Hotel and New Orleans Marriott join in the revelry with exciting travel packages for guests to experience Mardi Gras – from parade viewing stands to the chance of a lifetime riding in a Mardi Gras parade.

Ultimate Mardi Gras Experience
Anyone whose bucket list includes riding on a Mardi Gras float and having thousands of waving hands beckoning for them to “Throw me something Mister” can now take the ride of their life with the Krewe of Orpheus and have their purple, gold and green dreams come true!

The Sheraton New Orleans is offering an exclusive Ultimate Mardi Gras Experience package that includes the opportunity to ride on a float in the Krewe of Orpheus Parade on Monday, Feb. 28, 2022. The revelry continues at the magical Orpheuscapade ball following the parade. There are only two packages available, and each package is built for two people. The Krewe of Orpheus was co-founded by native son Harry Connick, Jr., so headline musical acts are always part of the celebration.

This ultimate Mardi Gras package, which starts at $6,500, includes the following perks:
● Executive Suite accommodations with Club Lounge access
● Two riders on a float in the Krewe of Orpheus parade on February 28
● Two ornate Krewe costumes including unique Mardi Gras masks
● Mardi Gras throws—beads, trinkets, stuffed animals and more
● Two seats at Orpheuscapade Ball following the parade

● Hotel welcome amenity including two cocktails and a copy of Arthur Hardy’s 2022 Mardi Gras Guide
