Royal Sonesta
Hotel Monteleone
Omni Royal

Not sure if those 3 are really "small," but excellent places to stay in the Quarter. Check them out online. Try B & B's also.

In the search dialog box on the upper right, highlight Louisiana and click search. You'll find lots of great information on those threads.

Good luck with your planning!

New Years Eve in N.O. has always been very popular, even last year after Katrina. Make your reservations as soon as possible.

Check out Place d'Armes and its sister hotels--one is the Prince Conti. Place d'Armes is very charming and only a half-block to Cafe du Monde and Jackson Square. Also don't neglect B&Bs; there are some very nice ones in the quarter. Can't remember the name but we have stayed twice at one on Esplande near the quarter--nice breakfast brought upstairs to you, even a kitchenette, large balcony facing Esplanade. Very reasonable. Good luck. No matter where you stay, you are in New Orleans. Have a wonderful time!

If you want the Quarter, I'd second Place d'Arms. Very nice, convenient and reasonable and more atmosphere than larger "chains"

Definitely make your reservations ASAP and be aware of the possibility of being moved to another hotel due to “over booking”. We go to NO frequently and have encountered this only on NYE. Out of three years we’ve had it happen to us twice.

I’d like to recommend the Royal Sonesta too. Very nice

Another vote for Place d'Armes----be sure to check out the room they give you before you settle in to stay. We stayed there in May and some of the rooms on the first floor had a very musty smell. We stayed on an upper floor with a view to the street. Some rooms have been updated more recently than others. Great location!

I just checked some B&Bs at neworleansinns.com and several showed availability. You're not too late, Bambii, but I'd book soon!

royal sonesta is booked. looks like its between hotel monteleone and place d'armes. they are about the same price. any pros and cons to help make the decision? i'll try to look at some of the b&bs but this is a surprise trip for my SO so my research time is limited!

Given the choice between those two hotels, it's easy: Monteleone.
