I'm traveling to New Orleans next week with my family. I'd like to find an affordable, family friendly hotel with continental breakfast that is close to either the Audubon Zoo or the Aquarium of the Americas. No more than $150 per night as we will need either 2 rooms or a large suite - preferred.

Thanks friends-----looking forward to your responses.

Try the Park View Bed & Breakfast on St Charles. It's right on the streetcar line, next to the beautiful Audubon Park.

The B&B itself is very tired-looking inside (as are most of the old B&B buildings there), with old antique furniture. But they do serve continental breakfast, and there is always on the premises to let you in past hotel hours. Peaceful. Do not remember what all type of rooms are available, but I believe they have a website.

There aren't any big hotels near the zoo, but there are numerous within an okay walking distance to the aquarium. Check Hilton New Orleans Riverside and the Doubletree. Windsor Court, Harrahs, W, and Loews are close by also, but not sure how they'd fare on price.

Try The Ambassador hotel on Tchoupitoulas. I have not stayed there but considered it, the price is right. Don't know about breakfast but considering the per night price you can afford a good, inexpensive breakfast at M's a block away toward the river. I work across the street. It's a nice safe area.
Edited to add the reviews are mostly awful, but if you're not spending much time in the room (which was my plan) I'd still consider it. Also, some of the hotels friends and family of mine stayed in got great to terrible reviews. You just never know. We stayed at the Plaza Suites, which is great, but a bit expensive.

The Drury Inn offers a really good breakfast for free. They also have cheaper parking than most, and reasonable rates. It's probably about eight blocks from the aquarium, and I think the streetcar will take you to the zoo. Hotel rates are generally cheaper in the summer. I pricelined a four star room and got the Marriott on Canal for $70/ night on the weekend in August.
