I know I am a bit early, but had a few questions concerning the parade and hotels in November. Drury Inn looks like the way to go, but how far is it from the shopping and other action there is for a family with kids?
Where is the best place to view the parade? If staying at a hotel with a view, is it suggested to use this view, purchase tickets on the riverwalk, or purchase reservations for a restaurant on the riverwalk (and how much do they normally charge)?
Which hotel on the riverwalk is suggested for it's beautiful architecture and/or decor?
