Hotel in the French Quarter Now Offering Creepy Summer Getaways

New Orleans Marriott Features Exclusive Audubon Insectarium Hotel Packages

    /24-7PressRelease/ - NEW ORLEANS, LA, June 19, 2008 - Remember catching lightning bugs as a child at dusk in the summer? Well, the New Orleans Marriott Hotel in the French Quarter has created a creepy crawling experience for the entire family that will bring you back to a simpler time of slimy worms and jars of glowing insects.

No bugs about it, this creative family getaway promises to serve up hours of fun-filled excitement for parents and children alike.

New Orleans' newest family attraction showcases the largest group of animals on Earth... insects. Since prehistoric times, insects have played invaluable roles including pollinating crops, decomposing waste and adding intrigue, color, texture and majesty to our world. Your visit to the one-of-a-kind, interactive Audubon Insectarium will illuminate amazing things about these tiny (and not so tiny) creatures.

The We Love Bugs Family New Orleans Hotel Package includes:
• Four tickets to the Audubon Insectarium (two adults and two children)
• Spacious overnight accommodations
• Breakfast for four
• Rates from $179 - $329 per room, per night

Less than one block from the Audubon Insectarium, the Marriott Hotel on Canal Street in New Orleans is perfectly positioned near all of the Big Easy's most famous attractions, and is the ideal weekend destination for families looking to put a little buzz back in their summer.
