Looking for French Quarter hotels or B&B's

We will be visiting the area in late April and would like some recommendations for places to stay in the FQ...we understand that this area had minor Katrina damage and is up and running? We will be arriving by train...is there easy transportation from there to hotels? Taxis?

The FQ did great compared to the rest of the city. It was high ground and had almost no flooding. The FQ is about 90% back to normal, you'll have a good time reguardless of which reason you go, partying, art, shopping or history. The best in the Quarter (hotels) are the Omni Royal Orleans, The Monteleone, The Bourbon Orleans, Chateau Sonesta, Royal Sonesta, Prince Conti, and there is more. The taxi thing is one of Cajunwave's specialties. He's is suppose to be out of town about now but I'm sure he will respond as soon as he has a chance.

Terry gave you some good hotel options. The Ritz, Monaco, Fairmont and Hyatt are all still closed but most of the other major chain hotels are up and running. For B&Bs, try La Maison Marigny on Bourbon Street or Elysian Fields Inn. Further out, we read good things about Crescent City Guest House and B&W Courtyards.

From the train station, it's a $10 cab fare to any of the abovementioned places. Flat fare. Taxis usually queue in front of the station although there aren't as many these days so you may want to call United Cabs when you arrive, 504-522-9771.
