April 7, 2008 at 6:04 PM | by | ()

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is running this year from April 25-May 4 and featuring some top artists like Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Jimmy Buffett, Tim McGraw, Santana, The Neville Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Widespread Panic, Diana Krall, Keyshia Cole, Robert Plant, Alison Krauss and actually "thousands" more.

Granted, there's practically a whole week of musicians to see so getting a hotel room is not as competitive as say, the Super Bowl. But the earlier you book, the better deal you will get. Here are some more links to help you out with Jazz Fest planning:

· Musical Line-Up: Who's playing when and where.

· Sheraton New Orleans: The official host hotel of Jazz Fest found on Canal Street But more hotel deals can be found here.

· Expedia: The booking site has launched some hotel deals section for Jazz fest. Book by April 8 (tomorrow) to score bigger savings.

· Jaunted Asks, "Who's a Jazz Artist?": So did you read those names above and wonder why they were playing at Jazzfest? Yeah, Jaunted thought the same thing.

· Renaissance Pere Marquette: This hotel has gotten a $5 million renovation including a new restaurant MiLa which is the "marriage" of the chefs home state cuisines - Mississippi and Louisiana. The hotel has also revamped their lobby to include scents, jazz music, set lighting and decorative accessories so as to spice up your arrival.
