This is the corner of Bourbon and Orleans Streets, directly behind St. Louis Cathedral and across Orleans St. from the Bourbon Orleans Hotel.
Roundtrip Gameday Transportation – Saturday Nov. 23d
For those Aggies attending the game or wanting to tailgate at Tiger Stadium without the hassle of traffic and parking, the New Orleans A&M Club has arranged to provide roundtrip motor coach transportation from New Orleans. The coaches will be escorted by Baton Rouge police directly to the bus staging area at Tiger Stadium. Departure time is expected to be 4 to 5 hours before kickoff, allowing ample time for tailgating. Staging and pickup will be at the DoubleTree Hotel, 300 Canal St., New Orleans, 70130.
In advance of the designated departure time, bus riders will secure a name tag from NOLA Club staff at the DoubleTree for admission onto one of the buses. Liquid refreshments will be provided on each bus.
Riders are entitled to participate in a catered tailgate hosted by the Baton Rouge A&M Club. The New Orleans A&M Club will make a donation to the Baton Rouge club for each bus rider to defray their costs and assist with their charitable endeavors.
The DoubleTree Hotel will serve as the Headquarters for the New Orleans A&M Club. An initial block of 25 rooms *** SOLD OUT *** has been secured for $129/night for Friday and Saturday night (Nov. 22d & 23d). To make a reservation at the discounted rate you must call the reservation line, 800-222-8733, and ask for rooms in the “New Orleans A&M Club” block. Additional rooms may be added to the block at a later date but will be discounted from the current rate at that time.
You do NOT have to be a NOLA Club member to reserve at the discounted rate at the DoubleTree.
