When you visit New Orleans, "a good time" is not just a wish. It's a way of life. This is a city known for its rich culture, delicious food, funky music, stunning architecture, and lively atmosphere.

So why settle for a plain ol' New Orleans vacation rental that's just like...well, anywhere else? Pick a Stay Alfred travel apartment in the Big Easy that adds a bit of pizazz to your travels.
Embrace the Artsy Vibe of the Warehouse District
In NOLA's Warehouse District, the past and the present blend together to create an eclectic, trendy scene that would make hipsters weep. The neighborhood has maintained much of its historic charm (watch your step – you're walking on 19th century paving stones, there!), now mingling with the talent of James Beard Award-winning chefs and celebrated local artists. From your Stay Alfred travel apartment in the Warehouse District, you can easily walk to attractions like the National WWII Museum and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, as well as eateries and bars of all sorts. In fact, your Stay Alfred travel apartment at the Motorworks Building is just steps from Peche Seafood Grille, headed by Chef Ryan Prewitt, James Beard Award winner. And sports fans? Get ready for some serious team spirit – New Orleans loves their Saints, and you're within walking distance of THE Superdome. In the summer, you can dance up a storm in Lafayette Square during Wednesday at the Square, or groove it out during the annual fall blues festival. And don't forget your canvas bags – the Crescent Farmers Market is a hopping spot to pick up something fresh and local. At night, spots like the Circle Bar, the Ace Hotel, and Rusty Nail come to life, offering live entertainment and smooth cocktails that'll make you feel on the up and up.
The Motorworks Building: Something Old, Something Chic
When you choose a Stay Alfred travel apartment at the Motorworks Building, you're choosing simple, tasteful accommodations with one of the coolest backstories around. This historic building dates back to the 1920's and was once a car showroom for Jeffery Automobile Co. Most of the architecture, like the huge windows and the original wood floors, has been lovingly maintained – or creatively upcycled. (That bike rack outfront? It's made from pieces of the giant elevator once used to move cars from one floor to the next.) For days when you feel like keeping things low key, take a drink, a book, and a snack up to the rooftop patio for city views that'll leave you awestruck. And keeping up with a workout routine is easy as pie with an on-site gym.
Your Stay Alfred travel apartment in the Motorworks Building is the living definition of “industrial chic.” This one-of-a-kind New Orleans vacation rental incorporates much of its original historic charm. Things like original wire-glass windows, polished concrete floors, and exposed brick and ductwork – all of which have been lovingly restored to mint condition. While the look and feel may be vintage, the functionality is 100 percent modern. Lay out a full spread on the quartz and granite countertops, prepared by a fleet of high-end, stainless steel appliances. Complimentary in-unit WiFi offers some of the fastest Internet around, all in a full-furnished space that is cozy and stylish. At the end of a long day, the rain shower will give you that ultra clean feeling that makes for the best night’s sleep.
Be at Home in NOLA
We can all agree that there are certain home comforts that you miss while traveling. Like a real washer/dryer set that doesn't require you to pay in quarters. Or a kitchen where you have the option to make that big Sunday breakfast you love so much (or at least have the option of cooking – you do you). Or a bed where you can sleep, a sofa where you can lounge, and a dining table where you can eat. We believe that you don't have to miss any of those things – so unlike a classic hotel situation, a Stay Alfred travel apartment makes sure that your New Orleans vacation rental comes with all the comforts of home. Professional management and a professional cleaning prior to your arrival are must-haves, of course, because the last thing you need to worry about on your trip to NOLA is texting a typical vacation-rental homeowner after sundown for help tracking down their meticulously hidden house key – only to find that the homeowner’s definition of “clean” differs significantly from your own (and not in a good way).
You deserve better.
