Best way to to visit the French Quarter and Bourbon Street?

Me and my friends are going to plan a weekend road trip to New Orleans.None of us have ever been to New Orleans. We like to drink and have a good time. We also want to visit Bourbon St. What is the best way to do this? Hotel suggestions? Any transportation to Bourbon St? Taxi prices? Must do or see things?. We are trying to do this as cheep as possible, but any help is appreciated.

I can’t add much to who dat’s answer except I like the Hotel St. Marie. It’s inexpensive (about $60 a night), clean, and it has a pool. It’s like so close to Bourbon St. it’s crazy. I don’t know if they have parking, I never drive there. Their sister hotel is the St. Pierre up the street. Also inexpensive but no pool.
Have fun!!!

What’s Bourbon Street like in November?

My friends and I will be going to the Alabama/LSU game and thought we’d spend a night or two in New Orleans. I’ve been there before for Mardis Gras and I know how crazy that can be. I wanted to know what Bourbon Street is like in the off season. Should we bring beads (and yes, we know that’s touristy, but we don’t mind 😉 Is it worth it to get a hotel with a balcony overlooking Bourbon?

It won’t be as crazy as Mardi Gras (nothing is) but there should be lots of people in town for the game. The weather in November is also usually nice.

There are only two (2) hotels with balcony rooms overlooking Bourbn Street:

Royal Sonesta
Ramada Inn on Bourbon

Balcony rooms can be fun. They also tend to be noisy (from the crowd on the street all night). If sleep is important don’t get a balcony room. You don’t need beeds and it’s actually against the law to throw them from the balcony to the crowd. Yes, people do it and the police don’t interfere unless it becomes a problem. If hotel security/management or the police tell you to stop then stop.
