Hotel for Mardi Gras? help ...

by lovinoz Online Now Aug 12, 2009 at 4:22 AM

We're going to Mardi Gras in Feb 2010 and looking for suggestions of the best place to stay without paying over200/night. We'd like to stay within a couple blocks of Bourbon Street, minimum 3 stars.

We went to Mardi Gras in 2002 and stayed in a Courtyard Marriott in the CBD but in walking distance from the French Quarter. Got it through priceline.com and it was only90/night! I've just checked and it's fully booked for 2010.

Also, when we went last time there were no buses from the airport to the city - has that changed? We'd like to avoid taxis if possible ... more money for hand grenades!!! :)

Any tips would be appreciated!

Happy travels,
daniele :)
