Jul 1, 2021 to Jul 5, 2021
New Orleans, Louisiana

Come be a part of one the best Essence experiences you could have!  We know there are many options for you to plan the perfect Essence trip, that's why we go the extra mile to make sure your weekend is as carefree as you want it to be.  Not only do we offer some of the best packages and add-ons, but our flexible payment plans make it easy to stay on track!   

Start your weekend off with a stress-free check-in the stylish lobby of our 4 star luxury hotel centrally located on world-famous Canal Street, with only a short 10 minute walk to the Convention Center and only a 15 minute walk to the Superdome.  All of our hotel rooms are guaranteed and your reservation can be verified at any time.  A special welcome gift awaits our guests in each room, as you unpack and get ready to enjoy your weekend.  

Our basic package is for those attendees who prefer to chart their own course, they just need a room.  For those looking for a little bit of comfort and convenience, our EPIC package comes with a sweet sponsored swag bag and event options.
