Where’s the best part of town to stay in?

When I travel, I like to experience the thing that makes a place unique. In New
Orleans, that means the French Quarter. Jackson Square is the hub of the Quarter.
Stay to the east of Canal St and south of Dauphine and you’ll find many hotels to
chose from. Paul McCartney stayed at Le Richelieu on Charters St during his
Wings days. The Maison de Ville (Toulouse St), Hotel Villa Convento (Ursulines
St), The Clairborne Mansion (Dauphine St), and the Lafitte Guest House (Bourbon
St) are a few romantic suggestions. If you’re looking for something more functional
than stylish, we have several modern chain hotels on the Quarter’s fringe: The
Hotel Intercontinental (Charles St), Le Meridian (Canal St), Harrah’s (Canal St),
The Wyndam (Iberville St). If you’re on a budget, you can use Loyola’s dorms in
the summer (504-865-3737), and Tulane has some suites available to the public
(504-865-5724). Be careful about booking a cheap room –do not make a
reservation unless you have a personal recommendation, or you could end up in
skid row.
