Alternately, when looking up hotels see what can be found in Gretna. It is
across the river, but only 10 minutes from downtown. There are a couple
hotels right next to the bridge. Might be cheaper than Metarie, as
well. As a native one thing I never know is how much hotel rooms are.
All it takes in New Orleans is one conference and the hotels are smack
full. Thank goodness they didn't decide to show up at Mardi Gras
time. You would have been staying in Baton Rouge. ;-))
