Hi,

I am planing a trip to NO in November this year. I am looking for a hotel within driving distance to downtown. I am not wanting to spend $150 plus a night to stay downtown or in the french quarter. How are the Gretna or Metairie areas? The prices seemed more reasonable there. Any info would be greatly apprecatiated. Hope everyone is making it thru the storm.

There used to be a Ramada at I-10 and Causeway that was convenient and nice. Not sure if it is still there. Metairie would be my choice even out by the airport is fine but far.

Hey, DON'T STAY IN A HOTEL. Get a room at one of the many bed and breakfasts in the French Quarter. They run about 75-100 a night. You can really get some cheap ones. They have a homier and more authentic feel than a stuffy hotel room. Google them.

You can find good places for well under $150 a night. A couple months ago I stayed at the Inn on St. Anne (does have sort of a bed and breakfast feel), and for November it looks like it's running ~$80 a night. The staff was really friendly, everything clean, little courtyard, etc. I only mention it because I stayed there, but there are plenty that you can get for under $100. I've stayed at a few others (all 3 star ratings or more) that were right in the FQ.

The only downside is, parking may run you $20-$30 more per night in the French Quarter. :/ Are you planning on venturing outside of New Orleans? If not, the French Quarter, downtown, Garden District, Frenchman St are all withing walking distance or bus/streetcars make it easy to get around without a car. Just 2 cents from a fellow NOLA traveler!
