A few days ago someone posted a question on this board under the topic "best hotel in new orleans." They wanted to know what hotel to stay in around the French Quarter. Posters gave thier opinions (this is all before Katrina struck). Today two people posted thier suggestions on hotels. One person was listed as being from NY and the other NJ, this question was answered as if NOTHING HAS CHANGED IN NEW ORLEANS! How can one answer this question after what has happened? I'm pretty sure everything will be different once the clean up has started and hotels are rebuilt. Maybe I am over reacting since I'm from LA. With all the media coverage I thought everyone knew what was going on in New Orleans but I guess some are just clueless and think New Orleans as we have known it will back and kicking within a few weeks.
