Making my first trip back to NO since ill-fated convention at Hyatt on 9/11/01 (that's a whole 'nother story) and ended up at the Drury's on Poydras based on raves at www.tripadvisor.com.
Flying in Sat AM 3/15; flying out Tuesday 3/19 noon-ish. Is this hotel as nice as advertised (the 3 free drinks per day certainly caught my eye) and what's around there food-wise to check out? I know about Luke and Mothers already. Dunno yet if I'll have a car or not. Lived at Gen'l Pershing and Carondolet for a year in the 70's so I know (knew?) the City some. 4 old roommates getting together for bits of a weekend looking for some recommendations.
