Update 3.18.2013

Our overflow hotel is the Avenue Garden Hotel, 1509 St. Charles Avenue.  It is one block from the Maison St. Charles.  In order to book, you will have to call and ask to speak to Richard.  The hotel is NOT available to book any other way at this time. The number is 504.521.8000.

Room rates will start somewhere between $79 & $109 depending on the room size available.  You can view the Avenue Garden Hotel website for more information & room descriptions.  Amenities include free wifi & breakfast.

Please note, if you are driving or require parking accommodations, the hotel is in the mist of renovating its garage but expects it to be finished next year.  If necessary, we more than likely can arrange something with our event hotel.

If you anticipate going to the C of C next year, we urge you to book your reservations now while there is availability.


Update: 3.16.2013

We’re almost done negotiating rates for our overflow hotel & we’re trying to get an idea of how many rooms are still needed. If you are in need of a room for C of C….please email and let us know size & dates.

As a reminder, only once we are sold out of rooms at the Maison St. Charles will we start directing new reservations to the overflow. 

Thank you all very much for your patience in making reservations.

Booked solid? No, not yet.

I apologize for all the confusion over the reservation process at the hotel. We are booked past our block now and into the remaining hotel rooms. If you’ve called to book a room and were told we were “sold out”, that is why. When the hotel is out of all available rooms, we’ll let you know.

As of our last communication with our hotel on Saturday, March 2, there were still a few rooms available. However, the hotel will likely sell out of Friday and Saturday room nights very soon. We will be meeting with the overflow hotel early this week. Once we are clear with them and out of rooms at Maison St. Charles, we will start directing new reservations to the overflow.

Thank you all very much for your patience in making reservations. At times, Amie has had to be be both CofC rep and hotel sales rep. Thankfully, she’s good at both.
