My 63 yr. old mother and I will be staying at the Royal St. Charles end of October (my teenaged boys are going to Voodoo Fest). My mother is concerned about the hotel not being in a good area. I know it's close to the Quarter, but it should be ok, right? We will most likely NOT be walking around late at night, and will of course use common sense like not carrying a purse behind us, wear jewelry, etc. :) I have not been to N.O. since before Katrina, although I do live in LA. Thanks for your assistance!
