help! - first trip to New Orleans

esther kelly | Jan 12, 2002 12:33 PM

Six of us (no kids) are planning a short stay (2-3 nights) in New Orleans over the weekend of 4-5th May (during Jazzfest). It's a sightseeing trip, so we're not really there for the Jazzfest - just a coincidence. Anyway, we're trying to find a room for less than $100 a night. We've found two so far...
BestWestern/Travelodge on West Bank OR La Salle on Canal Street. Is the West Bank too far out to see the sights? Does anyone know La Salle or can you recommend somewhere else to stay that's relatively cheap, central and not too rough. Thanks a lot. Also, is there anywhere we MUST we eat before we leave?
