Holiday Parade in November

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?

The Drury is fabulous, especially for a family with kids. Breakfast buffet, afternoon/evening soft drinks and popcorn, and evening cocktails and snacks make this the best bargain on the river. Quick walk (5 minutes to the left) and you are in the middle of everything! Take a right onto the river and follow around to the river tours desk in front of the Holiday Inn. You and your kids will enjoy the boat tour around the river.

I have never been during the holiday lighting/parade, but the Drury has a wall of windows overlooking the river. You can also try to book a terrace room/suite and watch from your balcony BUT you may be leaning out over the railing to get a full view.

The Drury is beautiful, since it is located in a historic structure. La Mansion next door is beautiful, too, BUT you will pay much more and won't get the perks!

Be sure to ask for the SAV rate if you go with the Drury! Have fun!
