Need a New Orleans Hotel Cheap
 
My daughter and SIL are going on a cruise for their anniversary.
Leaving out of New Orleans. This is new for us(them), we have always left from Galveston. Any suggestions about staying down town or is closer to the port better. ANY and All information is deeply appreciated. There will be 4 traveling togther. And of course, the young adults want to be down where the ACTION is. Thank you in advance.
They are on a tight budget, so an affordable, clean, cheap place is best.
Thank you again.

Are they driving? If they want cruise parking then getting a cruise package costs more, but is worth not paying to park at the port. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Superdome the last two times for $99. I couldnt get it for $99 at first the last December, until the very last month before the cruise, the price for the cruise package for free cruise parking finally came down. Someone who is a TA got I think Ramada for $89 but it might be a TA rate. Holiday Inn Superdome also will shuttle them to the port (they arent allowed to pick up from the port, so they will have to taxi back)

Its $16 a day to park at the port, so its worth getting cruise parking, and paying more for the hotel.

If they dont need cruise parking, hotwire had a cheap 4 start in the french qtr the last time I went some people who flew in choose as it was cheaper. Look at hotwire and anything in the french qtr is very close to the port.

Drury has cruise parking for $35 but aint cheap and you have to pay for the cruise rate, not the online rate, though Drury is lovely and includes happy hour and appetizers and great breakfast, but aint cheap. There are two other Holiday Inns, one of which is the hotel listed on hotwire if they dont need parking, lots of choices.

Here is a link to possible hotels if they need parking.

If they dont need parking, then its much cheaper and easier.

Google Chateau Bourbon it's in the French Quarter close to all the action and is not too expensive for that area.

That above link is the place to go to find packages for parking/cruising. If you are interested, we recently recorded a podcast all about New Orleans. You can get to the episode through my website, or on iTunes under CruizeCast. They will have a blast, New Orleans rocks!
