My parents, who are in their 60s, will be staying in New Orleans over Thanksgiving, and are thinking of staying at the Marriot on Canal Street right on the boundary of the French Quarter. Is anyone familiar with this location? Is it a little seedy? Is it safe? And how far a walk is it to the main part of the French Quarter? Also, how crazy will the French Quarter be over Thanksgiving? They don't mind a little noise and people drinking having a good time, but will it be openly rowdy and a drunken, raucus party? Any advice would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
