We stayed at the Fairmont years ago when we were there...probably in the late 90's. Very nice, abutted the French Quarter so it was an easy wallk without being in the middle of the madness.

It was an expensive hotel, but we had some kind of deal...I forget what now...so it was very affordable for us.

Where at in New Orleans? French Quarter? CBD? DO NOT stay in the east! Stay far away from New Orleans East! If you're in the French Quarter, you'll be fine. Same as any other city, don't walk down dark alleys because you'll be on the next Criminal Minds episode.

We stayed in the Marriott on Canal. It was beautiful and the staff was extremely accomodating and helpful. I walked everywhere in the French Quarter (during the daylight) all by myself while DH was in meetings. I was absolutley fine!

On our honeymoon DH and I stayed at Le Richelieu on Chartres St. It was very nice and quiet. We didn't hear any of the crazyness from Bourbon St but were still in the midst of the French Quarter. Good luck and have fun!

My DH and I stayed at the Omni Royal last June. We thought it was a beautiful hotel and in a perfect location for everything!

Do what the Louisianan's do. Pick anything on Canal or in the French Quarter (but not on Bourbon unless you plan on partying the entire visit and don't mind noise 24/7) and look for bargains or style you want. Anything in that area is nice and caters to the tourists.

Personally, I used to just get on kayak.com and look for price and free parking. Bad hotels just don't stay in business in New Orleans, so it's mostly price and what amenities you want.

(Note:I live an hour away now, so it's not worth it for us anymore. We park at the WWII museum, get sandwiches at Cochon's Butcher, and walk down to the Quarter.)

I stayed at the JW Marriot once for a conference and it was nice.

HOWEVER, do yourself a favor and have breakfast at a little place called "Mother's". I have no idea of the address. We walked there from the JW. Ask a local. "Mother's".

You will thank me later

We have visited New Orleans many times over the years. Mothers on Poydras St. is one of our favorite places to eat, but don't forget Cafe du Monde for breakfast. Some beignets, OJ and coffee is a great way to start the day.

We have stayed at the Fairmont and Marriott on Canal Street. In the French Quarter we have been to The Omni Royal Orleans, Bourbon Orleans, Royal Sonesta, Place de Armes, Hotel Provincial, Inn On Bourbon, Historic French Market Inn and Hotel St. Marie. Our favorite hotel has been the Inn On Bourbon http://www.innonbourbon.com/ followed closely be The Omni Royal Orleans. If you stay at The Inn On Bourbon and want a quiet room, just get a room overlooking the inner courtyard. The rooms on Bourbon or Toulouse Sts. have balconies with entertaining views, but it will be very loud. The hotels in the French Quarter take a beating and you want a place that keeps them in good shape.

I've stayed at Maison Dupuy and Royal Sonesta and would recommend them both.

YES Poydras St! That was absolutely the best breakfast I have ever had in my life. Grits, over easy eggs, debris (the meat that falls off a roast while it's cooking ) gravy, and biscuits the size of my head! AMAZING!
