Question Ttiana?

Hey, Tracey!

I know it's a bit early to think about this, but: What do you suppose my odds would be of finding a hotel to stay in during Mardi Gras 2003? I've been told most rooms (in the French Quarter) are booked a couple of years in advance (??).

You're there.....gimme the scoop on the best week to be there, the best parades to see, and if you have any info on accommodations, etc., that'd be waaay cool. If nothing else, I'll stay at a Super8 in Slidell or Metarie. You could still give me the grand tour!

I'm GOING to Mardi Gras next year...with or without a bike.......I'll rent a convertible if I have to! LOL But I AM going!

Hey Cindi,

The balcony rooms on Bourbon are rented a year in advance or you have to pay out the wazoo to get them. (*You don't wanna stay in them anyway. Too fricken loud all night long)

You can get a decent room as close as 2 months before. Try Orbitz.com because if you call the hotel, they will prolly tell you that you have to stay for the whole weekend which is Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. I just wanted to stay in the Quarter on Monday and Tuesday so I went thru the computer and skipped the front desk.

Sales tax is 9%, its dirty, smelly, and expensive to be in the quarter but if its action you want, that is what you will get. I will PM you about specifics and my #. I live 2 miles from the Quarter and have a great parking space ifyou want to leave the car there. Otherwise, its about $12 a day at any hotel. DON'T RENT A CAR, you won't need it.

I'll check the exact dates and get back to you. Mardi Gras changes every year. I'll also tell you of the parades. Too many to mention here.
Tracey
