Hey everyone. It's our first time to Mardi Gras. We want to be close enough to walk to the action but far enough to sleep well! There are 7 of us from Miami and we need a nice, cheap place to stay. I was thinking JW Marriott on Canal, for $230 a night? (between 7 or 8 people it's cheap). Or Renaissance Pere Marquette? ANy other ideas? Thanks!
