I am a first time poster so hopefully someone can help me. I am going to NO Jan.26-30. We will be staying at the Hotel Monaco. Is it safe to walk back at night from the French Quarter to the Hotel? What is the best way of transportation from the airport to the Hotel if we are arriving after 9 p.m.? Shuttle or cab? We don't want to rent a car as it is $30 for parking per day. Anyone care to rate the Hotel Monaco regarding service? Also are interested in building a Louisiana style home and want to get some ideas. This home will be built in a coastal area and have to built on pilings due to flood laws. Any ideas of where we could look? What areas in or near New Orleans? If we have to rent a car for a day or two to go to an outlying area that would be fine. Lastly, for a nice dinner (without having to wear coat and tie) could you suggest a nice restaurant that wouldn't break the bank? We are interested in atmosphere as well as a fun time. If anyone could help I would be appreciative of any information. Thank you in advance
