I have looked on a few web sites and my head is spinning. I am trying to find a reasonably priced hotel for April 17-21, 2013 for my son who is graduating college midterm and would like to take his girlfriend to New Orleans for a few days on is birthday. He has been to New Orleans many times, as we lived in Mississippi for 12 years, and is very familiar with the area. Anyway, I am trying to find a hotel in or very close to the French Quarter that is reasonably priced for this time period. I see that the dates are between the French Quarter Festival and the Jazz Festival. The prices at the hotels for these dates seem to be quite high - does anyone have any suggestions? They really just need a safe, clean hotel, nothing fancy - they will be flying in from Michigan and will not have a car so location is very important. Thanks for any suggestions!
