Has anyone stayed at the Best Western Plus French Quarter in New Orleans on Rampart recently? Reviews on Hotels dot com are mostly good. Is it walking distance to things like Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, etc.?

Thanks.

There are several BW hotels in New Orleans. If you go to bestwestern.com and search for NOLA - the top 3 are within blocks of Bourbon Street and the one on Rampart is closest. My wife works for BW ( not in Nola - here in Tx) so I'm pretty sure that is where we will stay, but I'm aggravated at how expensive the parking is. NO cruise packages the last I heard. WE may stay at BW-Landmark in Metarie - 7 miles from downtown and free parking for the length of the cruise. I like Best Westerns. Have a great cruise!

I personally do not like this location to use as a pre-cruise base for sightseeing. The area on Rampart is not an area I personally would walk around(at night).

We will be in New Orleans the night before our cruise and need a good restaurant suggestion for dinner. Then we will have until around 3pm on Monday after our cruise to hang out. Any restaurant or activity suggestions?

Figure out which hotel you are staying at and I will give you 2 or 3 suggestions that are a short walk from your hotel. Unless you are driving.

We are staying @ Drury Inn in August. Any idea if their parking garage that is under construction will be done by then??
