We are New Orleanians and during the hot summer months, we like to play tourist in the French Quarter. Usually in July and August, which is generally off-season in New Orleans, because of the hot, humid climate, hotels offer "Sizzling Summer Rates". We always spend a couple of weekends at the Omni Royal Orleans in the French Quarter. For about $100/night you get a great room in the heart of the Quarter. There is a wonderful rooftop pool that overlooks Jackson Square and the ships cruising down the Mississippi River. You can wind down on Friday afternoon sipping mint juleps around the pool or lounging under the covered bar patio. Even if it rains, as it does often enough in July or August, you can stay and watch the rain, cleansing away the week, as your sip your cocktail. Also, during the summer, you can get into just about any great restaurant without much notice, all within walking distance. We like to go to the Carousel Bar at the Monteleone Hotel on Royal and sit in the window and watch the world go by. Eventually we walk across the street to Mr. B's for barbecue shrimp and their hot white chocolate brownie dessert. We finish the evening with a martini at the Bombay Club(shhh!) in the Prince Conti Hotel, and finally back to the Omni Royal Orleans at the evenings end. Two nights at the Omni Royal Orleans in the Quarter and you're ready to tackle the week again on Monday.
