Re: Visiting from New Engand. Help?

  • I personally think that late October/early November is probably the best time to visit New Orleans. The weather is perfect! 70's during the day, 60-50s at night. As for recommendations on where to stay, what is your budget? Chateau Le Moyne is a reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of the Quarter. Royal Sonesta is nicer, and right on the corner of Bourbon. Hotel Montleone is also a nice place to stay, and the Carousel Bar located within the hotel is one of my favorite places to take people visiting from out of town.

  • Thanks!!!!!!! i would say moderate budget, not too extravagant but not too cheap, and we would definitely want to have a couple nice dinners :)

  • PP had good suggestions. Royal Sonesta is one of my favorite hotels but it is on the nicer side.?

    I suggest contacting the New Orleans CVB. They will have LOADS of information for you and can help you with what events will be in the city during that time and what hotels are offering deals, or are in your price range. It's all free, so take advantage of it!

    The weather is PERFECT both those times of year. Maybe a little chillier in January, but if you are from NE, it won't be a problem. The coldest it will get here usually is the 30's and that's rare.
