Looking at going to NO in early September and I'm dizzy with looking at all the hotel options. I've read so much good and bad on a lot of them. We want to stay in a FQ hotel that has history and character yet not run down and trashy. We'd like a nice pool area and perhaps a fun bar & restaurant close by or even in the hotel. Pretty much be quirky and quaint, yet not completely devoid of comfort and class. It doesn't have to be super quiet but it would be nice if it wasn't really noisy either. And we want to try to keep it not much more than 100 per night since the parking will be 30 or so for most hotels and we will be driving there. Any suggestions?
