Has anyone ever stayed at this hotel or on the other side of the river? I was told by the hotel that we could take a free shuttle over to the Algiers ferry and ride the ferry for free. The hotel is $60 in September and I'm thinking of going ahead and make our reservation. Does this sound pretty good?
check tripadvisor.com for reviews. There are some hotels, outside of the French Quarter, but close enough for easy touring that would be just a little more expensive. We are trying the Drury Inn and Suites, which gets goods reviews.
Westbank is a long way from the French Quarter if that is where you want to go. Try Maison St. Charles. It's about a mile from Bourbon St. and they have a Bon Voyage package for just $89 per night. The street car stops right in front and lets you off on Canal and Bourbon...very convenient.
