AMVETS 77th National Convention

August 16-20, 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana

The 77th National Convention is slated for August 16-20, 2022 at the beautiful Marriott New Orleans!

Parking – The only on-site parking option is valet, which is $50.71 per night. Several parking garages not owned by the hotel are within walking distance, prices and availability range. Airport parking (would need to shuttle, ride-share, or taxi to hotel) is $15 per night.

Airport to Hotel – The “official” shuttle service at Louis Armstrong Airport is $44 per person roundtrip. Ride shares can be less expensive if traveling with at least one other (about $33 one-way for up to four passengers), but prices can suddenly go up at peak times of the day. Taxis in New Orleans operate on a flat rate of $36 per person ($15 per person if traveling in a group of three or more), one-way.

Scooters – There is no official scooter company for this convention or hotel. Scootaround is one company that services the area’s hotels.
