New Orleans Airbnb Regulations

Short-term rentals are currently legal in New Orleans.

Short-term rentals are currently limited to certain zoning districts of the city. Only one party of guests is allowed per rental. STRs may not be used for any social events or gatherings. The rentals may not affect the overall characteristic of a neighborhood or residential area.

Currently, the vacation rental market is clashing with the hotel industry, creating issues for both sides. The rentals are becoming more and more popular and hotels are fighting back by pushing for zoning laws and restrictions.

A great resource is the Alliance for Neighborhood Prosperity. You can contact them by reaching out to Polly Hardie at
