OK, I know its a big of an oxymoron to be asking for inexpensive and Ritz Carlton in the same post. But work is paying for the hotel room; I'm paying for the meals.....and want to keep my spending down. Its not my first trip to New Orleans, and certainly won't be my last...and I have a few ideas already about places to go.....but wonder if anyone wants to chime in? Is the hotel right on Canal St? How far to the French Quarter? Where is Red Fish Grill...never ate there. Any other suggestions?
