We're heading to New Orleans next Saturday and this morning decided to try Priceline for our hotel. We ended up getting a pretty good deal at the Westin Canal Place -- $80 plus tax/night ($100 total). The price I named was $80, though. So, if anyone is looking for last-minute deals, you might want to try Priceline. I have no idea if you'll get the same deal, but it might be worth a shot considering that the Westin and most other nicer hotels in the area are charging over $200 per night on their websites. I just narrowed the potential hotels to 4-star properties in the French Quarter. So, either I was going to get a good deal or get rejected and pay full price somewhere else.
