Default Hotels in New Orleans

We're trying to plan a late summer cruise, and are thinking of trying the New Orleans terminal this time.

Is anyone familiar with motels in the area? Which ones are good choices, because of their location to the terminal, allow cruise parking, have shuttles, etc?

Try the Marriot on Canal street we stayed here and loved it! Only 2 blocks from burbon st. and about 2 miles to the port.

Try looking on the internet at the New Orleans cruise port. There is a lot of information on that site. If you are at all familiar with New Orleans you will see that the port is practically downtown. I looked at the site on the internet just quickly and it mentions the parking garages at the port being well lighted and patrolled.
Unless you get a big hotel with a big garage it is difficult for parking in N.O. And I heard from friends about finding their car broken into at the big Westin downtown and that was before Katrina. You might also look for a security number at the Port and check on security.
Or check on your cruiselines message boards on CruiseMates and ask the same question. That's where I usually go.
