Coming back, after 30 years.

English Red | Apr 30, 200209:28 AM

I drifted into New Orleans just before Mardi Gras 30 years ago, and stayed for 3 months. Now my 22 year old daughter has just set off on a 12 month hike around the world (currently in Malaysia), and we want to meet up in New Orleans next Feb/Mar.

Budgets will be tight, so I need some tips - at 53 I feel less inclined to sleep in the church porch overlooking Jackson Square!

I'm coming with a friend, meeting up with my daughter and friend.

What would be a reasonable/cheap price for a room, ideally near Jackson Sq? Are there likely to be rooms that sleep 4?

If we wanted to head out to Lafayette, is car hire cheap and readily available?

I bet Buster Holmes isn't still doing Business!!!
