"Investors are really keen on New Orleans, and hotels are at the top of that list.", said Mavis Early.
"There's a lot happening in this city," said Mavis Early, executive director of the Greater New Orleans Hotel & Lodging Association, who noted that business and arts development, along with a surge of young entrepreneurism, is driving investment in hotel properties.
We're probably one of the very few cities in the country that have the kind of occupancy," said Mavis Early with the Greater New Orleans Hotel and Lodging Association.
Early said on Friday and Saturday, hotel occupancy in the city was at 96 percent.

According to Mavis Early, executive director of the Greater New Orleans Hotel & Lodging Association (GNOHLA), hoteliers in the city were prepared for the storm and are staying calm in the midst of Isaac's deluge.
"Of course, we know that experience is the best teacher-and Katrina was an excellent teacher," she told Lodging via email. "We are much more prepared than we were seven years ago. Since Katrina, we have established precise plans and procedures. There is not much that has been left unaddressed."
Early explains that hotels began prepping for the storm several days ago, when the National Weather Service upgraded the tropical storm to hurricane status. Isaac hit land as a Category 1 hurricane.
"Hotels, as just about everyone in New Orleans, have emergency preparedness plans," she says.
According to Early, one of the biggest problems hotels faced during Katrina was a lack of communication with the staff and employees. During the Category 5 hurricane that hit in 2005, hotel owners had a difficult time locating hotel personnel, and have since established a better way of connecting during emergencies.
"One lesson learned from Katrina resulted in most hotels establishing an ongoing procedure to maintain up-to-date contact information on all of their employees, including their cell phone numbers and that of a close family member or friend," says Early.
GNOHLA and other tourism agencies in the city including the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau and the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, put together the New Orleans Tourism Crisis Communication Plan which includes contact information for key tourism leaders and sets forth responsibilities and procedures to follow in the event of an emergency. Early says that ongoing communication efforts between city officials, tourism leaders, hotels, and hotel guests is essential in keeping everyone safe and informed.
"The safety, security, and comfort of guests are always top priorities for hoteliers," she says.
Early explains that since there was no mandatory evacuation put in place, hotel guests were allowed to stay at operating hotels in the city during the storm. She says that guests have been advised to listen to important announcements from hotels and local officials and to heed instructions relating to the storm.
"Issac is not the type of event that Hurricane Katrina was, and mandatory evacuation was not necessary," says Early.
Early is confident in the city's ability to handle hurricane Isaac and other tropical storms and hurricanes that develop in the future. She cites the improvements that were made to the levee and flood protections systems as a barrier that will protect the city from the type of devastation it saw during Katrina.
"New Orleans is more protected now for storms and hurricanes than it has ever been in the past," she says.
