I am going to participate on a conference in New Orleans in the second half of March 2007. It will be held in the Morial Convention Center, I think. I am searching for a hotel or B&B which isn't too far from the convention center nor from the French quarter. I prefer the rooms where the daily rate is not higher than 150 $. Could you recommend me a good place. I will stay in NO about a week. Should I rent a car, or the public transport and walking allows me to get to know the town?
Thanks for your help!
