When you mention New Orleans, it's hard not to think of hospitality. People treat each other like they're old pals, even if they're meeting for the first time. It's not uncommon to be invited to someone's house too, so keeping up your living space is important, especially for local hosts. These Airbnbs truly embody southern hospitality: they welcoming tourists and visitors into homes that drip with New Orleans spirit and flare. When you make your next trip, keep in mind what they say when you're in the Big Easy: laissez les bon temps rouler. Check out these picks for our favorites non-hotel options in New Orleans.

1. Bohemian Chic in the Bywater

Dip into history when you stay in this 150-year-old Creole cottage in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. The Bywater is an eclectic and walkable area of New Orleans, but this Airbnb makes it even easier by including two cruiser bikes with the house. The cottage is unlike newly constructed houses you see today; it has hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings, a claw foot tub and exposed cypress paneling. It's surrounded by some of the best restaurants in the city and has a great nightlife as well. Rates start at $120 per night and require a four-night minimum stay.

Maximize Your Purchase

There are plenty of ways to maximize your stay with points and miles. If you’ve never used Airbnb before, sign up through TPG to get $40 off your first booking — and the gravy train doesn’t stop there. Book through the Delta portal and earn 1 SkyMile for every dollar spent on your stay, and make sure to charge the purchase to a travel rewards card to rack up extra points. Using a card like the Chase Sapphire Preferred will get you 2x points on all travel purchases while the Chase Sapphire Reserve will get you 3x points on an Airbnb stay. When you combine the two, you’re effectively double-dipping with your points earning.
