Hi, we are hoping to travel to New Orleans in April. Which is the better hotel for first-timers. We are also traveling with two little kids. Is New Orleans back to normal? Is April a good time? Thank you.

At this point in time, I would suggest Quarter House. It is in the French Quarter, while the other is across Canal Street. My wife was in New Orleans on business a couple of weeks ago. One of her customers told her not to go across Canal Street after dark. She was staying at the Sheraton on Canal Street, which is on the French Quarter side of Canal. She has pictures of the shops across the street, half of which are boarded up. The casino looks like it still has a big hole in the roof. She said that only a few tables were filled at the best restaurants in the French Quarter, but most businesses there were open. The weather in April is good.

The Sheraton is actually on the other side of Canal St. It is roughly across from the Marriott, which is on the French Quarter side.

Just got off the phone with RCI and reserved two weeks in N.O. for April.(Chateau Orleans and Plaza Suites.) Any suggestions for 1st timer? Will be doing some volunteer work there.
Thanks

Thanks Hoc...looks good...

Anone have ideas on parking...$12.00 and $17.00 per day near the T/S. Of course it could be worse because of Katrina.

Hi Rmelnyk,

Say hi to Paul (GM of Chateau Orleans) for me.

FOOD :D Some places that I like near Chateau Orleans are Acme Oyster House, one seafood restaurant around the corner starting with D? opposite a hotel a couple of blocks away. KPauls is nice for a splurge and the restaurant in the W French Quarter call Bacco on Chartre.

Near Plaza Suites, maybe Mulates. The food is okay and the music is kind of fun.

Plantation tour if you have time. Garden district with the cementary there opposite Commandre's Palace (now closed). Riverboat cruise maybe?
