You should stay in the Historic District. May is very popular so book soon.

The only really viable option if you are on foot, is the historic district. The "historic district" and "downtown" are NOT the same thing. Downtown will not be walking distance to the things you will want to see and do, so be careful when choosing a hotel. As stated above ~ May is a really busy time, book a hotel very early or you will not be able to find anything. Or at least not anything affordable.
