We are going to a wedding in March 2015 and it was suggested to stay at the Hampton Inn on St. Charles, which is across the street from the Columns, where the reception will be. I was surprised to find the rates so high ($258 a night) for a Hampton Inn. I found a Marriott Courtyard on Julia St for a lot less and according to the map, it's only 12 mins away. Is this close to St. Charles street? Is the area safe to stay in? I would greatly accept any suggestions on other hotels that are under $200 a night. I'd like to stay not to far from St. Charles. Thank you for your help.
