Need New Orleans Help

Posted by ELIZABETHD (My Page) on

My first New Orleans trip is coming up in November. We are flying from Newfoundland (Canada) to NO and taking a cruise from there. We will be spending two separate nights in NO. I am VERY excited. I hear it is a wonderful city. Our problem is finding a nice place to stay that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. We are dealing with the Canadian/US exchange rate which doesn't help but we've yet to find anything less than $150 US.

We are open to historical, cultural, inn's and B&B's if anyone has some suggestions. Basically we want something CLEAN and close to the Ports and riverwalk.

I would GREATLY appreciate feedback from anyone who knows that part of town.

Thanks Very Much

Not sure what the rates are but the Doubletree is located very near the "Quarter" and the Riverwalk.

Other than that, I'd do a B&B search for anything actually in the "Quarter".

RE: Need New Orleans Help

We go to New Orleans ever year almost. We end up staying just outside of town because if you get down where you can walk to things it gets fairly expensive. Let me know if you find something reasonable and we'll try it next time we are there.

Try ... I've stayed at the Monteleone and it's not too bad (smaller hotel in the Quarter) and the Le Meridian is a big hotel like a Hyatt just across Canal from the Quarter. Never been in the Maison Dupuy but it looked ok from the outside. My folks usually stay at the Royal Sonesta but it's more expensive unless you catch a special.

Some of the garden district hotels can be nice also if you don't mind the 20-30 minute streetcar ride to the Quarter.
