hotel just out of NOLA

We will be arriving in NO in May the dayt after the Jazz festival so hotel prices are high. We will be heading over to the Missippi Delta on up to Memphis. I don't want to pay alot for a NO room so thought outside of NO like Metarie? We arrive at 4pm and will leave later the next day. We have been to NO before and want to revisit the FQ. Any suggestions for a good place out of town that is inexpensive, clean and in a safe area? We will have a car. What about parking while in FQ? What does that cost?

Sleep Inn and Suites in Metairie seems to get pretty good reviews so seems like a safe bet. They seem well run. There are a few Metairie hotels that I would be leery about. There are no hotels with great New Orleans atmosphere an charm in Metairie like there are in New Orleans. But if you are looking for a place to crash this might work. Also, there are two pretty good restaurants near there. I like Zea in the Clearview Mall and Cafe East on Rye. Cafe East has a lunch special that is around $8 that I enjoy quite frequently.

I second Dgratia. The Holiday Inn is the highest rated hotel in Metairie by TA. I have not stayed there but friends have said it was nice. There are some nice restaurants in Metairie. Parking in the FQ is expensive but there are some places around $l5.00 a day near Loyola Avenue. Here's a link to parking.

Holiday Inn @ 2261 N. Causeway Blvd, Metairie, LA 504 - 373 - 5946.

Hampton Inn @ 2730 North Causeway Boulevard, Metairie, LA 504 - 831 - 7676.

Have fun in the Delta. Spend a night in historic Natchez, MS. Visit the Military Park in Vicksburg and stop in Greenwood for the night at the 4 * Alluvian Hotel owned by Viking Range. Eat dinner at Lusco's. Visit Clarksdale, MS home of the blues and stay at Shack Up Inn. Then head to Memphis. Enjoy your trip.

If you are arriving on May 7th, which is the Monday after JazzFest ends, hotel prices shouldn't be too bad. If you want to visit the FQ, then staying in Metairie is a pain and parking is pricey, unless you don't mind walking a lot! Cheaper hotels can also be found on the Westbank - I think there is a La Quinta and a Holiday inn on the other side of the river, aka "Westbank". I think some of those hotels are close enough or have a free shuttle to the ferry that can cart you over the river to the foot of the French Quarter. I'm just suggesting some alternative options.
