try vrbo.com  for great lodging options.  I have stayed in the french quarter for a fraction of a hotel.  And staying in apt/house lets you save a lot on food- and feel like a “local”

I had the pleasure of visiting NOLA in October 2009 and it was by far one of my best traveling experiences (and I’ve been all over the world). You don’t have to spend much or plan much to really have a good time.

A definite must is Cafe Du Monde (don’t wear black). For a small fee you can have an amazing breakfast or naughty afternoon snack while watching people go by. Take a walk down by the river, do some window shopping etc. For another small fee you can take the trolly car and look at all the old homes, get off and look closer if you want. I believe it is the St. Charles Line?

This city is all about atmosphere and not about spending. You will have a great time!

Oh and we stayed at the Marriot I believe (Canal Street) and it was right around the corner from the French Quarter (literally a block or two). The price wasn’t too bad, especially if you have AAA.

Good luck and have a great time!

I go to Jazz Fest now and then.  I highly, highly recommend a show at Tipatina’s, Howling Wolf, or the House of Blues.  There are other great music venues, but those are apt to have great acts any time of the year.  You will love it!!!  NOLA is the best!
