I am in search of a very nice hotel near the convention center (has to be 4 star or 5 star - picky client) and could use some recommendations. Ideally, it would be no more than a few blocks from the convention center as this person's schedule is incredibly packed and will need to go back and forth between the center and the hotel frequently. The Embassy Suites, Holiday Inn Express, and others in that category will not be "nice" enough for this individual. As well, they require a nice pool area, restaurants, etc., and would like to be no more than a few minutes from the "action" (I assume Bourbon Street area, but admit I've never been to New Orleans). Price is not a big deal.
Can anyone advise?
