Biloxi questions again

Jump to last reply

The short story is that we're going to Biloxi in February. We want this to be an inexpensive jaunt and don't want to stay at one of the casino hotels. Been there, done that in other cities and figure if we want to gamble or see a show, we can just go to one of the casinos.

Anyway, I'm considering 2 Marriott Courtyard hotels. With the senior rate and the fact that we'll be there mid-week, we can stay for under $90 a night. The question is which hotel of the two. I know nothing about Biloxi, neighbourhoods, shopping, food, any nice areas with some charm, etc.

I expect we'd like to be near decent shopping, maybe a mall with a movie theatre in it, and some casual but decent restaurants. We'll likely want to hear some good music. We'll have a car. We won't be going anywhere fancy.

Both hotels have the amenities we want (free wi-fi, free parking, fitness centre) and both get good reviews. Here they are:

Courtyard Marriott Biloxi North/d'Ibverville -- (one of the review said 'close to shops and theatre')
OR
Courtyard by Marriott Gulfport Beachfront -- (it won't be beach weather and we may not even get a beachside room, so the beachfront think may be moot)

Which do you think is the better neighbourhood for our stay? And if you have any restaurant or entertainment suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Other hotels too.
Thanks
gtg
