Experts at money.co.ku recently reported bookings spiking by 52% since COVID restrictions have begun to lift in some areas. Using Forbes' bucket list of the top 50 places in the world based on Airbnb popularity, money.co.ku determined the highest rated Airbnb stays, ranked from 1 (being the lowest score) to 100. The data considered both the number of reviews as well as the average score of an Airbnb. New Orleans ranked number 7 (just behind Moscow, Russia, and Havana, Cuba) with a score of 87 in this carefully crafted global list, and it's no surprise! From the French Quarter to Uptown, to Mid-City and the Bywater, New Orleans has hundreds of cool Airbnb's!

If Airbnb is your lodging choice on vacation, a few things come into play. Of course, picking the perfect vacation city is crucial. As recognized by money.co.ku's research, New Orleans obviously scores high in that regard. But what really bumps NOLA to the top 10 is the uniqueness of the Airbnb spaces themselves, and the fact that there is an option that satisfies every vacation! For example, stay in a historic house at Luminous Marigny Loft. A spot like this is moments away from live jazz on Frenchmen and is sure to satisfy the history buffs urge to spend time in a New Orleans historic home. If entertainment is the priority, pick one of the hundreds of French Quarter condos and stay right in the thick of the fun! Staying in the quarter not the vacation vibe for you? No problem! In Uptown New Orleans, you'll find stunning houses, private rooms, and guest suites to choose from.
