I am planning my first trip to New Orleans and am in serious need of some good advice. Both as to where to stay and what/where to eat. Does anyone have a good hotel or B&B suggetsion? Do I want to stay in the French Quarter or would somewhere else, perhaps the Garden District, be a better choice?
As for restaurants, I only have a weekend so time is limited (I will of course try to fit in as much chow as time and my bank account will allow). Any thoughts as to the best places, both high end and low???
