Where in New Orleans should I get a hotel?

My husband and I are taking our 3 young daughters to the zoo and aquarium in New Orleans this week-end. I live in Louisiana and have never been to New Orleans. I am not sure which parts of town are the "safest". Any ideas on websites to find discount hotel prices? Any information on New Orleans would be appreciated.

Stay in the Quarter. Since the hurricane, I have stayed in the Hotel Monteleone twice (smallish rooms except the suites), the Ritz Carlton twice (service still struggling to achieve appropriate standards), the W French Quarter twice (fabulous location on Chartres but a real sink would be nice), and the Windsor Court four times (love the full suites, but they need a make over). All have parking, are close the sites of the city, and are safe. Only the Monteleone would be described as historic. The size of the Windsor Court is perfect for kids. Have fun.

What should I do while staying in New Orleans?

My family is planning a trip to New Orleans for the week-end. We have three small daughters; ages 7, 5, & 2. What are some fun, "cheap" things we could take them to do? We are planning on the zoo and the aquarium. What else is there?

Lots to do but here are some ideas on a budget. Take them to the children’s museum, mardi gras world, the wax museum, a carriage ride, walk along jackson square and the river walk, a zephers baseball game, the IMAX theater, steamboat natchez, cafe du monde for beinets, take a streetcar ride. Enjoy!

Hornets Sting Back in Nba Basketball

The star of the evening for the Hornets was David West who scored a total of 40 points for his team of which 15 points he scored in the final quarter alone.  Los Angeles lost to New Orleans 105-116.  The defensive game played by the Hornets towards the end proved to be the turning point of the game in their favor.  NBA basketball results can be quite unpredictable!

The Lakers maintained a lead through most of the game with 92-89 in the fourth quarter but luck seemed to run out for Los Angeled when they were only able to score 5 of 21, as well as a shocking 3 of 11 from 3 point range and were outscored 27-13.

The Hornet’s coach, Byron Scott told the press that his team had to take up a defensive strategy as Bryant Kobe was unstoppable scoring on every throw and the Lakers also scored a number of 3 points.  His team tried to play Kobe straight up but that didn’t seem to work so they switched their strategy and tried to keep the ball away from him as much as possible.  This led to their win.  Live basketball results kept the fans glued to their seats all around the world.

Despite being formidable  in the first 3 quarters, Bryant was unable to deliver much in the final scoring a disappointing 2 points scoring only 1 of 6 as compared to 13 of 16 in the initial 3 quarters of the game.
Later Bryant spoke of the Hornets defense and how he couldn’t get his hands on the ball enough stating that “…they (Hornets) weren’t going to let me get a shot off”.

This was a fitting revenge for Hornets for the 2 losses they suffered at the hands of Lakers earlier on in the season in New Orleans.  David West scored 14 of 23 from the floor and another 12 of 13 from the foul line to tie up with his career high score.  West was also able to grab 11 rebounds as the Hornets won their incredible 16 the game out of 21.

West admitted that he was certain of his team’s win once they were able to force Bryant to slow down.  Winning this match was important for the Hornets as they had already lost twice to Lakers this season in their home base.
The two teams, Lakers and Hornets, will meet for a fourth and final game of this season on Feb, 20 at the Staples Center.  Hornets are hopeful of tyeing the record.

With only 5:24 minutes remaining for the end of the game, West scored 9 points giving the Hornets a lead of 109-99.  A 3 pointer by Derek Fisher with only 4:37 left, tried to compensate for Lakers inability to score in almost 4 minutes but there was no stopping the Hornets once they increased pressure on Bryant.

Paul was another All-Star for Hornets shooting 32 points, 3 steals, 15 assists and absolutely no turnovers in 44 minutes.  Tyson Chandler and Rasul Butler added 22 points and 14 rebounds between themselves.
The Hornets reached their highest score this season with 116 against Lakers.  The Lakers are pretty bogged down with
injuries as Jordan Farmar, Luke Walton couldn’t play because of left knee and right foot injuries respectively.  Now Lama Odam will also not be able to play in Wednesday night’s game due to a right knee injury during Tuesday’s game.

What is a cheap hotel or motel in New Orleans in the French Quarter?

I want to stay as long as possible when i go, for as cheap as i can, in the french quarter. just so it isn’t disgusting! Any other cheap, fun tips for visiting new orleans would be great too.

Hotel Monteleone. Wonderful Hotel in the French Quarter. Be careful of the Carousal Bar. That gives bed spins a whole new meaning. They also have a great Piano Bar. Plus the rooms are quiet. Very heavy security. No partying in rooms allowed at all.

How to get to the Wharehouse District/Art District from Bourbon Street?

I will be visiting New Orleans and I will be staying on Bourbon Street. I am flying and not planning on renting a car. Is there a way to get to the Art District without getting a taxi? I don’t even have any idea where is in relation to Bourbon St…Is there a street car that will take me there?
No, not the Garden District. I know the difference. It’s supposed to be close to French Quarter. I just don’t know where…

It’s about 1 mile from the French Quarter to the farther edges of the Warehouse District. Its just past the Central Business District, and is roughly bordered by Poydras Street to Lee Circle, and from the River to St. Charles. There are museums that would probably be considered to be included in the Warehouse or Arts District that are located as close in to the French Quarter as Poydras, which is the first major street past Canal. You can also take the St. Charles streetcar to Julia, which is where most of the main galleries are located.

Visit and click on the Central Business District map, which has the Warehouse District clearly marked.
