My wife and I are planning an anniversary trip for our first anniversary. I've been to New Orleans several times, but it has always been for an event (New Years Eve, Mardi Gras, Sugar Bowl), and as a result the French Quarter has always been packed to the gills.
We are planning our trip for May 10th- May 13th. I am curious of the intensity of the crowds in the French Quarter (and the city) for these dates. If i get a hotel in the french quarter will it be possible to get in and out with a vehicle during the day and the evening?
Also, should i go ahead and book my hotel room or wait. I've seen elsewhere in these forums mentions that hotel rates will decrease as summer approaches.In my breif research everything looks nearly booked already.
Thanks in advance for any replies!
