    We are going to meet some friends at the end of sept in the big easy and with so many hotels, b&b's and motels, what is a good place to stay?
    Ever stay at B&W Courtyard? Lafitte Guest House? or Hotel St. Marie?
    Any suggestions welcome, we are looking for economy, warmth, hospitality and to be close to the French Quarter.
    THANKS!

    NOLA is one of my favorite places. This is what I di, where I stayed and where I ate when I was there in May. I'm very jealous!

    Kyle and I posted alot before he went....St. Charles street car all the way to the end of Carrolton...the houses on St. Charles are gorgeous.
    Tea is great at the Windsor.
    Abita Springs has the most wonderful restaurant Artesia....Worth the drive.

    Hey I live in New Orleans, and I think you should go to Antoine's. Its a very nice, and very tasteful Restaurant. And if your looking for a little parting there is Eutopia on Bourbon Street.

    Look at the dates of the original posts.....2001.

    Current restaurants....Stellas, John Besh's August (the tasting menu is exceptional in value.....one of the best dining experiences I've ever had)
    Ugelisch's, Mother's (still).....the street car ride is still awe inspiring. Bakeries are not what they were 20 years ago. Stay away from chains there are way too many exceptional hole in the walls to spend money on chain food in N.O>
    I had lunch at Bayona's and after 20 years it's still delightful, the desserts are some of the best and most creative around.

    Summer in NO is HOT/Humid....
