New Orleans on a Modest budget.
Hey guys, my dad wants to visit N.O. with my mom for their anniversary around Christmas. He is on disability, and does not have a ton of money to throw at the hotel. Something in the $100-$125/night range would be great.

But we aren't sure what parts of the city are best to stay in. Or if there are any local spots that would be good to stay at that aren't a national chain.

Any advice would be wonderful.

The Hampton Inn on St Charles should come in around that pricing point, esp if they stay during the week and not on a weekend. They can ride the streetcar or Uber to downtown/French Quarter.

re: New Orleans on a Modest budget.
What is “around Christmas”? You don’t really want to go on a budget anywhere from the Friday night before Christmas through New Year’s Day because that’s a very popular time for travel. Now there may be deals to be found, but that’s generally speaking.

So if he’s retired I’d highly recommend going from around Dec 15-20 and then from Jan 2+. Given there’s no other festivals or anything.

With that said, are you able to help them find an AirBnb type of place? I’d bet from Dec 15-20 barring any type of special event you could find a nice AirBnb with a ton of reviews for $80/ night.

re: New Orleans on a Modest budget.
You could possibly swing the Place D’Armes hotel for 125-150. Oldest hotel in the city I think... With your father being on disability, and not knowing how mobile he is, something they can do at that hotel is go to caroling in Jackson Square on Dec 22. It’s 100 feet from the hotel. There’s plenty of restaurants right there also.

Beyond that, they can Uber to Canal for 7 or 8 dollars and then catch the trolley to the zoo for another couple dollars. A lot of beautiful homes to view on the way.

Just a couple ideas.

Eta: Old 77 is a much nicer hotel. I suggested Place D’Armes for location. The amenities ain’t much to write home about.

You should get them a King at the Inn on Ursulines. If you do it now it should be ~$140/nt.

Check some bed and breakfast places around Magazine St or in Garden District
Might be able to find a couple within your price range doing that instead

Check out the Lafayette Hotel. It's not fancy but it's in a great location and they could always hit up Desi Vega's happy hour in the bar downstairs Tuesday-Friday. It's not a far walk to the French Quarter, but if they have limited mobility, it might not be the easisest. The St Charles streetcar stops right there to get uptown.

Renaissance Arts in the Warehouse District is in a good location and is usually priced reasonably.
