Also, Expedia's got some good FQ hotel deals right now.... just to let ya know. A lot of 20%-30% off sales.

Fair warning though if you haven't stayed in the quarter though.... parking can be a *****.

I was bumping around online looking at packages. Where will everyone wanna stay? I have never been to NO.

Maybe if there are a few of us a travel agent could hook us up?

Any hotel/casinos? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

I drove there each time, and stayed at Hotel St. Louis twice. Like I said, parking's a real *****, and it's an extra $15-20 fee on top of the list price. If you're not driving in, it's a good deal. Right between Bourbon and Royal. I liked it because, even though it's right in the thick of things, it's tucked away and kinda quiet.

The other times I stayed at the chain hotels on Canal because I couldn't get in there.... which I'm not a big fan of, I like the originality inner-quarter hotels offer.

Sadly, Mike Anderson's on Bourbon St. closed after Katrina but you may consider booking another similar type facility.

We had lots of fun that night but the Texans lost the next day.
I resemble that remark

My wife had a business conference recently in NO. She said she stayed at one of the more well-known places, and there were hotel-employed armed guards out in front who would stop people (as they left the hotel, to go for stroll) and make sure they knew they better go one way and not another.

Doesn't sound like a fun place to me. Of course, I am all about limiting risks when it comes to physical safety...so, maybe Nawlins is not for everybody.

Y'all have fun and be good. Don't stand still for too long, or Jeremy Shockey might mistake you for a fire hydrant. LOL.

Wow...that hotel must be filled with scary people. I am a young lady that is used to traveling solo. I can go to N.O without any drama. Most of the issues that I come across is creepy old men trying to holla at me. I get that when I travel on Washington and River Oaks...so I don't see the difference. I am cool with chatting with the bums and moving right along to my destination. I normally leave my title at home when I go to certain places and remember my southern roots.....

Which hotel has armed guards? WTDOA?

But it is true...if 3rd, 5th, or 4th Ward scares you, then you might not make it in any other urban city in the US....stay at home and we will post pictures. lol.
