    • Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast4125 Saint Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA, United States
      Justin Barisich recommended Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast
      This 1891 mansion offers turn-of-the-century charm to match its historic location in the Garden District. Designed by famous New Orleans architect Thomas Sully, this mansion is an example of the Queen ... read more
      Anne style of the period. Surrounded by great restaurants in all directions (and right next door to the New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Co.), this professionally-managed B&B is in the heart of many of the city’s great offerings.

      Beautiful architecture, great location, and an affordable B&B with a committed staff.

    • St. Peter House Hotel1005 St. Peter St., New Orleans, LA 70116
      Pro 2014
      Arlo Hemphill recommended St. Peter House Hotel
      This is a place I have to recommend on the basis of value. It is far from being a luxury or even a "nice" hotel, but the combination of it's low prices, historic charm & location in the heart of the ... read more
      French Quarter, just two terrace-lined blocks back from Bourbon Street make it an exceptional value. It's clean, basic, no frills and reminds me of staying in hotels throughout Latin America, particularly with the charming inner courtyard patio, adorned with banana plants. Don't stay here on your honeymoon, but otherwise this is friendly & convenient base of operations for exploring the French Quarter - a quiet place to lay your head if you're expecting to be out on the town most of the time anyway - as you should be here in the Big Easy.

      OK Gretchen, so the St Peter House is not very nice, but it has tons of character, has the most most amazing French Quarter location, and is as budget as you can get for this part of New Orleans. It's probably not 'parent friendly' but a good fall back to keep in mind if you're ever looking for a budget option.

    • Sheraton New Orleans Hotel500 Canal St., New Orleans, LA 70130
      Liza Prado recommended Sheraton New Orleans Hotel
      The Sheraton in New Orleans is a surprisingly nice place--rooms are small but very comfortable with good mattresses, nice linens, and have a recently upgraded look. It's also on Canal Street, ... read more
      literally across the street from the French Quarter--close to all the action, but not in the middle of it (ie you'll be able to sleep at night).

      The Sheraton isn't a place with lots of character (surprise) but it's nice for a big chain and super convenient. If your folks stay here, suggest they ask for a room with a king size bed (most of the double rooms only had full sized beds....)
