Hi ladies, My FI and I have narrowed down our honeymoon choices to two, NOLA and Phoenix. My question is, do you have any hotels that you recommend or don’t recommend? We’re looking to stay in the French Quarter. I have been looking at reviews on tripadvisor, but most of the hotels are either way too expensive or they seem to have really mixed reviews. Thanks!!

I’ll try to help(not sure if the price is in the budget)
If you want to be on Bourbon St. the Royal Sonesta – but you are in the middle of all the action good/bad.
The W is nice very modern w/a lounge style bar in it. Right across from Harris Casino, walkable to most things in the French Quarter.
I’ve stayed on 2 on Canal St. but can’t remember the name now, if it comes to me I’ll let you know.
Some of the older ones would be adorable, but not sure which b/c I’ve never stayed at them.
If you have any specific hotels in mind, let me know and I’ll try to give you an opinion. I travel there frequently, live not too far away.

Please remember that some of the hotels in the Quarters have very small rooms. Just keep that in mind.

The W on Chartres St. is very nice.
Also consider staying in the downtown/CBD area. It’s right next to the Quarter. I’ve heard good things about the International House. The Queen and Crescent was nice (and cheap), too.

Hands down, stay at the International House. It’s so great. Nice people, great bar, good on-site restaurant if you need a snack. It’s in the Warehouse District on Camp and walking distance to the best breakfast place in the city, Mother’s. Yummy! Just got back from a weekend there this week.

Our wedding is at La Pavillon…GORGEOUS! You might want to check out the Loews, Sheraton, Royal Sonesta, and the Monteleone. They just reopened The Roosevelt, and it is simply stunning.

For a fabulous suite without the fabulous price, I booked the Hotel Royal’s largest room. It’s modern, on Royal so it’s in the action, but it’s a VERY small place, so you would be losing some on site amenities. To me, being a former local, this is no problem as I’m in my room very little. BUT, for those times that you are, there is a balcony and a jacuzzi tub and quite a large space for only 180 a night!!!
