I have just booked our first visit to New Orleans!!!!!!

So excited.

I will be back for your help in putting the finishing touches on the trip, but for now I just have to share my excitement.

After reading reviews for about a dozen hotels, and getting some good feedback from the posters on this forum, I chose the Hotel Villa Convento! I splurged and booked a Queen Balcony room. At a rate of $135 per night this seems like a really good deal to me and I am sure we will enjoy our time there.

Thanks for past and future help!

Thank Deny. I just know we are going to have a wonderful time.

When I first signed up with TA I did not want to name my exact town because it is small and I wanted to remain somewhat anonymous. I actuall live in Southern Ontario and we will be flying out of TO

Congrats! I'm always super excited for every trip to NO, but nothing beats that 1st trip feelings. I'll never forget my 1st look at Bourbon St. I feel lucky that it was at night time. You turn the corner and what a sight!!! Enjoy the anticipation, it'll be here before you know it.

Thanks everyone for sharing my excitement. We will arrive April 1st mid-afternoon and leave Friday afternoon. Villa Convento looks great in reviews and I am sure it will work out well for us. I am already picturing myself on that balcony enjoying a coffee and a croissant from that bakery across the street :-)
