Are there any 'less-expensive' but safe places to stay in NOLA?

A friend and I want to take a short trip (3-4 days) to NOLA in February on pretty tight budgets. What are the must see places? (We are foodies!) Where should we stay that is less expensive but safe?

FYI- Mardi Gras events are first 2 weeks in February with Fat Tuesday being Feb 17. Hotel prices will be higher at these times.

The The Westin New Orleans Canal Place is nice and usually has reasonable rates. It is on the edge of the French Quarter and right next to Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. Just a short walk away is the Davenport Lounge which is awesome. Also, across the street isHarrah's Casino. If you stay in a hotel right in the middle of the quarter like the Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans or Hotel Monteleone it will likely be much more expensive. One other plus about the Westin is its proximity to the river. Let me know if you need restaurant recommendations. Mardi Gras falls early this next year, February 17th, and I would suggestion not coming during that time if you want to really experience the city.

Here is a list of some of my favorite restaurants:

K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen  Best Creole Fine DiningIrene's Cuisine


Café du Monde  BeignetsYo Mama's Bar and Grill  Best Burgers Ever

Camellia Grill  Best Omelette Ever

I wouldn't stay anywhere outside of French Quarter, so whatever is available there is best bet

AirBnB hands down. GREAT places in the best hoods even for tight budgets. Look in Marigny, Bywater, Garden District, Uptown. It's a great city on a budget--tons of great restaurants/nightlife options in Bywater for a good value. You don't NEED a car--you can rent bikes or take streetcars and cabs--but cars are useful.

Hello Angi! You'll have to do a little driving, but if you look on the Westbank, or Metairie, the hotel prices drop dramatically, by and large. I've stayed in both places, for work, and they are 15ish minute drives to the French Quarter or Garden District. You can also find good deals in the touristy areas from time to time, but that is contingent on when you may be in the city. I will tell you that if you can find similar accommodations around the Quarter, or Garden District, and it costs an extra $20-$30 a night, bite the bullet and stay closer to the action. In New Orleans, you won't regret it. Hope that helps and safe travels!
