I've lived in New Orleans for a bit now, but my parents have never been and are coming down to visit sometime around the beginning of October. Neither of them are big drinkers, so the loudness/"craziness" (i.e. idiocy) of the tourists in the French Quarter doesn't really appeal to them -- they'd really like to stay in an affordable cute place somewhere outside. I was thinking maybe the Marigny area or somewhere in Mid-City or Uptown, but I really don't know what's out there. Where could they stay that's in the $100-150/night range (or less, although I doubt it's likely they'll find much under that)? Thanks!

Try Price Line. They should be able to get a nice hotel for a decent price this time of year.

This may not be quiet enough, but there's a hotel at the foot of Frenchmen that's always looked like a nice place. Should be able to pull it up on Google Maps.

They sound like they would enjoy staying in the Garden District. More peaceful, and absolutely gorgeous, of course. Then, they can always streetcar it over to the FQ and also wander onto Frenchmen if they want to explore that area, without having to sleep in it, as it were. Scope this site:

Garden District Hotel Collection - New Orleans, Louisiana Hotels

It's a site for three different Garden District hotels that are run by the same folks, I think. At any rate, I did a basic availability-check just to see what the rates look like. For the first hotel, they look to be around $89-$99 a night, the others seem to be a max of around $119.

I hope this helps!
