We're headed to NO in a few weeks (end of March, NCAA Final Four), to the Quarter House.

I'm looking for recommendations/comments on flying into Baton Rouge (Ryan) instread of NO (Louis Armstrong New Orleans Intl Arpt).

I've found much cheaper flights, for the dates I'm traveling, but is it worth it and easy to get to NO?

A few questions:
1. How far from Ryan to downtown NO?
2. What options are there to get to NO - airport limo? shuttles? public transportation?
3. And how much for each?
4. Does Quarter House have an airport shuttle?

TIA,
Jim

Maybe I can help narrow things down.

1. How far from Ryan to downtown NO? 1-1/2 hours
2. What options are there to get to NO - airport limo? shuttles? public transportation? Greyhound and another local bus company. Don't remember the name. But, by the time you got from the airport to the bus station and caught a bus, you could probably rent a car at Baton Rouge and drive to N.O. and drop off there.
3. And how much for each? No idea.
4. Does Quarter House have an airport shuttle? QH does not have a shuttle. http://www.airportshuttleneworleans.com/ provides service from MSY into the city.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll be calling Ryan airport and getting the options they have.

And renting a car one-way may work best.
