I apologize for not getting this info out to all of you sooner. New
is very exciting city to visit. Bourbon Street has PLENTY of music with a
mixture of Blues and Jazz. Other sites of interest: House of Blues Bar and
Resturant, Planet Hollywood, Jimmy Buffet's Bar and Resturant, Pat O Brien's
(home of the killer Hurricane...lol) The Cats Meow (alot of fun if you like
Karokee), Tipitina's, Jackson Square, Riverboats, Cafe Dumond (not sure of
spelling....lol) Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo, and AWHOLE LOT MORE! LOL
The New Orleans airport is a major hub (if Im saying that right..lol) and
best of all, everything is in walking distance once your located in the Qtr.
But lots of walking....for myself I have to use my wheelchair :-( unlike in
Memphis :-) ...hehe....
I also checked on several Hotels besides this one, and room rates vary...With
this hotel situated in the heart of Bourbon Street. This is a very GOOD rate.
Again, Thank you Sistah Janisrocks for helping get this information out.
