Best Place to stay in New Orleans during Mardi Gras


Planning to stay the Friday and Saturday nights. I know Im late in booking somewhere, but any help or direction in finding somewhere is appreciated.
1) Dont want to get killed.
2) I dont want to go to jail for pissing on the side of a building.
3) Want to have a good location close to my rental to watch the parades.
4) Want to be close to the French Quarter.
Suggestions?

most place will have a 3 night minimum i think.

downtown is not as good as uptown for parade watching. maybe for a tourist though.

just pick some hotels downtown and start calling if thats where you want to stay. you really dont need any help.

If it costs less than $275 a night don't stay.

LaCirq @ Lee Circle is a nice hotel & is half way between the Quarter & the 2 main parades that wkend. But as noted, most hotels have a 3 nite minimum for "special event" wkends.

Hotel Intercontinental. Right on the route, viewing stands, no 47%'ers, across from Luke, close to the quarter. Case closed.

This. Mainly because it is not in the quarter and has those viewing stands if you want to actually see some of the parades.

Nice hotel too.
