    Hello all!! My hubby & I are are planning an impromptu trip to New Orleans & would love some suggestions on nice places to stay (preferably within walking distance to say the French Quarter, etc.) as well as some must do/must sees. We don't have a day set in stone yet, but we are trying to avoid crowds, so obviously no Mardi Gras or other festivals. New Orleans is on our "bucket list", so we are excited!! Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!

      Hi! I"m from New Orleans and I know you would love a trip here. I think that the website New Orleans Online - The City of New Orleans' Official Tourism Web Site would be very useful to you because I even use it sometimes to find out what is going on in the city! One thing I do know is you won't leave this city hungry :) The New Orleans Menu By Tom Fitzmorris is a fun website to go to also to help you out where to eat. It list the top 200 places to eat here! I've stayed at three hotels and all were very nice. I've stayed at Harrah's, the W hotel, and the Royal Sonesta. These are all centrally located and will be close to everything.

      Me and my fiance are planning to elope in Maui....do you have any suggestions/pictures from your wedding

      Thanks and let me know if you have any questions about NOLA!!

        When we travel to New Orleans, we like staying at the Royal Sonesta. Nice hotel and we never drive anywhere until we go home!

        You MUST eat at Mother's, Acme Oyster House, I thinking its just not coming to me.... :)

        You MUST drink a hand grenade and a hurricane

        There is a fun jazz club on Bourbon but again all names have gone from me....

        I hope this helps!

          Thanks for all the suggestions ladies. We are currently looking at the W, so I'm glad to hear that someone has stayed there & recommends it. Ashley, as far as Maui, you will never regret your decision to marry in Maui - it's amazing!! We got married on the grounds of our resort, Aston Kaanapali Shores, & it was everything we had imagined it would be & more. I hired a wedding coordinator at Maui Island Wedding by The Salon , & she took care of everything (flowers, cake, minister, paperwork, luau for the reception, photography, etc.) As far as pictures, I'm on my work computer, so no pics, but if I remember this evening, I will attempt (lol) to load some for you. Thanks again ladies for your New Orleans advice, I truly appreciate it.

            We love the Omni there. It is a boutique hotel that is gorgeous! We never drove anywhere, it was perfect!
