Hi all, coming once again to ask for your expertise, thanks for all the help in the past, I don't post often but I've used this forum a lot when planning my last couple of trips.
Anyways, I'm flying down on June 14th for a businesss/pleasure trip and my wife will be joining me. While I'm working, during the day, my wife will be on her own and I'm wondering if walking about during the daytime will create a safety issue for her. She's hoping to do some shopping in the FQ and on Magazine Street but she would like to be able to walk rather than cabbing it from place to place.
We're looking to stay at one the Hilton propoerties(reward points being used), most of which are in the CBD or Warehouse Districts. The three we've narrowed it down to are the Garden Inn at 831 Gravier, the Riverside at 2 Poydras and the Embassy at 315 Julia. Any feedback on relative safety in those areas of the city and would it be okay for her to be walking to and from the Quarter during the day?
Also, any suggestions on which of the three would be the better hotel choice?
Thanks in advance,
