First, let me say that this is not anywhere near my first choice of hotel. I was fortunate enough to visit NOLA three times last year and stayed at Bourbon Orleans each visit. I have wanted to visit during Halloween and mentioned this to my gambling-loving parents and they coincidentally received offers for this very time and were able to secure two rooms (one being a bump to the Hilton). The hotel rates are pretty high for this period, so I am thankful for the freebie!
I am bringing a friend and we will likely spend the majority of our time in the French Quarter(this is her first time). I have done some map questing to find that distance to my favorite places are indeed in walking distance. My concern is returning during late hours. Should we opt for cabs if we are not too inebriated/tired lol or will it be a safe walk?
