Default Walk to New Orleans Port?

New Orleans natives or frequent visitors: How close to the port is the Hampton Inn and Suites, Convention Center, and, is it possible to walk to the port from there? Thanx

Hey cali,
We are staying at the Embassy suites on julia st and was told it is only 2 blocks away from port and a very easy walk. Just checked and you are accross the street from port . should be able to walk

Thanks for replying. I think we're across the street, but between the hotel and the port is the Convention Center so, hopefully, it's not too far to walk around it. I've heard it's been taking forever to drive to the port because of all the construction. We are getting there a day early, so we'll do a "dry run".

Went on a cruise last february and stayed with what we thought right down the street. We asked the hotel and they recommended a cab they said it was close but not the best way around. They said there was a pathway through the convention center but was closed becuase of security and 9/11. We decided to walk because we thought we were too cheap to pay the $15 bucks or whatever it was (there was four of us)

Okay anyways the morale of the story.... pay the money for the cab. The convention center is ALOT LONGER than it looks and even then, it is sort of an "industrial area" safe, no problems walking but ALOT FURTHER THAN WE THOUGHT.

GOOD LUCK!
