You could park at the Fulton street garage for $12.00 per day. They have a shuttle to the port.

We planned on parking there for the cruise..would we be able to park there an extra night? We planned on driving down sat to sight see and thats why we got a room. I didn't expect the hotel parking to be so expensive.

Don't know but I would imagine that you could. Something to consider is you might have to add the cost of a taxi to/from the Hyatt if you park at the garage Saturday. It is within walking distance if you have good feet. I would go ahead and park at the hotel and drive to the garage the morning of the cruise.

LOL! Yeah, that's me...wise! I know you will enjoy New Orleans. I spend a lot of time there myself. In fact, I will be there tomorrow. If you need anything else feel free to ask.

I'm sure you could park there the entire time. We are staying at the Holiday Inn on Convention Center Blvd - right next to the garage and we were told that the hotel charges $23 a night for parking or we could park the first night in the garage on Fulton for $12 - then leave it there (we get 7 days parking included in our room) so I don't think it will be a problem. Did you check the pricing for the Holiday Inn for your date. They change their pricing based on the time of year.

There will still be the added expense for the taxi if you stay at the original hotel.
