Please Post Your 2005 Mardi Gras Room Rates!

I am planning a trip to Mardi Gras 2006 - 2/28/06

It is much too early to get rate quotes from hotels & BB's.

Can you help me get a general idea of what I can expect to pay?

Please respond with following info -

Hotel Name -

Location(FQ,CBD,Garden,etc) -

Dates of Stay -

Room Rate -

Any Extras(Breakfast,etc) -

Thanks,

TedG

I have checked prices at 3 BBs in uptown for MG 06. Rates are $300 per night with 5 night minimums. These rates were even for MG light which is the weekend 10 days before MG. I gave up and decided to go to MG light and stay in the Marigny. You can get rates now. Some places are already almost full. High Dollar !!!

I got a room thru priceline for $70 (Hyatt) a night in the CBD. I found rooms for other people in the Quarter starting at $149 (Villa Convento & a Guest House), $150 (WW Whitney House on Esplanade, I think), and a couple of 2 or 3 more below $200.

Mardi Gras prices actually go DOWN in many cases as rooms are available just before the holiday and hotels "unload" inventory. I guess you can't count on this happening, though, since it's possible 2006 will be a big year since '05 wasn't.

$300 for 5 nights. Must be a great room!

The Villa Convento in the Quarter has Rooms available that start at $125 and go up to $165 per night during this time. I don't beleive that the rooms will last long since this is posted.
