Sure. I have been to NOLA a lot as I live in the Southeast and have had business there in almost every healthcare market I have been in. You are going at a great time weather wise so I am sure you’ll enjoy it.

let me know if I can answer anything else.

Not that you need another recommendation but I will throw mine on the pile for Acme Oyster. Queues for both lunch and dinner start early and I have been more than happy to take a seat at the bar to enjoy their fresh oysters. Multiple days.

We've stayed at the Hotel Monteleone on Royal Street the last three trips to NO in part b/c of its proximity to Acme. It's also close to Cafe Beignet, an outpost of French Truck Coffee, some sweet little antique shops, and walking distance to the WWII Museum and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. There is a great supermarket, Rouses, on Baronne Street if you like having wine & snacks in your room. It's very close to the Virgin Hotel AustinTraveler mentioned.

I booked Le Pavillon!!!! I usually reserve through booking.com but decided to check out Le Pavillon's website. They are offering a special: stay 3 nights and get the 4th night free!!! Our 4th night is Friday night, and Friday night rates are double! I can't believe my luck. I know I said I wanted to stay in the French Quarter but I couldn't pass up this bargain. So we are paying $711.66 for 4 nights and that includes taxes. I have to pay a one-night deposit, which is refundable if we cancel 72 hours prior to arrival.

Approximately how long will the walk be from Le Pavillon to FQ?

October will be a beautiful time to be in NOLA. My husband was there in the 1970's during the summer, and all he remembers is being drenched in sweat and taking 3 showers a day!

Now we have more money to spend on food! If I sound too budget conscious, it's because we are old retirees!

Thank you everyone for all of your help! I really appreciate it.

Jackson Square will take you less than 20 minutes walking from Le Pavillon. Your hotel is located just at the edge of the FQ and just a few minutes walk to the Virgin, where I'm staying. I picked the location out because of the easy walking distances so you're good! If you use Google Maps, all you have to do is map out your hotel and then get walking directions to your destination by clicking on the walking man icon instead of car. Hope that makes sense.

AustinTraveler, thanks for your helpful information. My husband uses google maps when we are in new cities so your instructions make sense!

Have a great trip. The restaurants I listed above may be more contemporary/modern than what you're looking for, but no doubt you won't go hungry in NOLA no matter what you choose!

Leely2, thank you. We will have a great trip. For a splurge, Herbsaint looks great, along with Peche and a few others. Cochon Butcher looks like a nice casual and reasonable place for lunch. I like the sandwiches and small plates. Thanks for all your suggestions.

Years ago we stayed at the Dauphine Orleans and really liked it. I just checked and there are rates under $200 for Sunday through Wednesday at the end of October.

Later we stayed at the more private and very nice section across the street - the Hermann House. Much more expensive though.
