We are planning a family trip to NO (me, hubby and our 7-year-old daughter).
I prefer the Marriott brand (points!!) but found a decent rate at the Crowne Plaza on Canal. I am also considering the Renaissance Arts, the Courtyard near the FQ on St. Charles, and The Courtyard on Iberville. Also looking at the Pere Marquette and the Marriott on Canal.
We want a place that is close to dining/shopping (but not necessarily in a touristy area) and safe at night.
I really like the Renaissance Arts but am wondering if there's much to do in that area? Is it a safe walk to the FQ from there? Is it a long walk?
I'm extremely indecisive and would be perfectly content if someone would just pick one for me! Thanks!
