Advice on New Orleans Hotels Please!

We are staying 5 days in September and want to be in the French Quarter. I would love a hotel with a beautiful courtyard. We are in our 40's and meeting some friends there. Thanks for helping with our vacation!

Dear Marilyn: New Orleans in September should be nice--though it will still be hot and sticky. Your best hotel bet--and one that meets the requirements you've listed--would be Hotel Maison de Ville at 727 Toulouse street, between Royal and Bourbon and near Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral. There is a good restaurant in the hotel and a continental breakfast is served in your room, I understand. The phone number is 1-800-634-1600. I live across the Lake myself and prefer the Marriott when I can afford it; but I think you'd like Maison de Ville. Let me know if I can help in any other way. As we like to say down here, "Y'll come, now!" Joan

Marilyn -- The hotel for you in New Orlean's French Quarter is Soniat House with, not one, but TWO gorgeously lush patios. The service is superb, the atmosphere unique in the U.S. and the over-all tone is one of a by-gone (and more romantic) era. Soniat House: 1133 Chartres Street, Phone 504-522-0570,
rates $145 - $275. Best bar in the Quarter: Napoleon House (have a Brandy Alexander or Stinger),. There are many wonderful restaurantes in New Orleans; I like Bayona, NOLA, Galatoire's (go early, reservations not accepted and the line can be long) and the Bon Ton Cafe.

WE had very good luck with Grenoble House. It's a combination of three townhouses with all suites. On the edge of the quarter. Continental breakfast only but go to Petunia's on St. Louis for Pain Perdu (French Toast, NO style). You'll think you've died and gone to heaven. Good lighter, and cheaper food, as Gumbo House. We had great dinners at Arnaud's and Broussard's. Commander'Palace is supposed to be the best, but make reservations NOW!

That's funny, but I have to admit, I've been guilty as well!

Anyway, GREAT post about the Restaurant Deal. Darn it, we'll be there in October and will just have missed it. But I bet a lot of lurkers will see it and benefit by it.

Haha, I must be a lurker! I was just looking to get some restaurant recommendations for when I'll be there in 2 weeks. I'm glad they posted that link . . . !
