Thanks to all the wonderful advice I have received, I am on my way on Friday to NOLA and food heaven! One quick question though. My husband just told me that he decided to rent us a car because some of the places that we are going aren't within walking distance of The Roosevelt/Fairmont, for example: Clancy's, Jaques-Imo's, Camellia Grill and Elizabeth's. We will also use it to get to and from the airport and to explore the surrounding area. What do you think? It isn't cheap to park at the hotel and I don't have a clue about the parking surrounding the restaurants that we are planning to drive to. Any advice will be much appreciated. We can always cancel the car and cab it.
