Ohhhh, this cute hotel makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I booked 4 rooms at this hotel during Halloween 2002 for a group of my friends and myself. It was about $120 a night and located right across the street from Louie Armstrong Park. I just thought it would be a nice cheap hotel but I came to find out it was sooo much more.
The location was in the “gay quarter” which made my super fag pal go “Weeeeeeee!”. And it had a pool, a bar that I think never closed, and a swell breakfast for those who could keep it down after a night of drinking. A newspaper was always at your door in the morning.
I would keep my door open and people would walk by the landing and stop and chat for a while. It was a blast that hotel. I would have to say it made the trip for me. Here is a description for their web site:
Unique Quality: Tucked inside the hotel, you'll find our charming tropical New Orleans style courtyard with outdoor pool. Reflections of the historic architecture and evening lights flicker in the turquoise water. The beautiful greenery surrounding our pool, patio and fountain areas, accenting the rich history of the hotel with a traditional French Quarter flair.
Jazz Garden Restaurant open daily for breakfast (7-11 am Sunday thru Thursday, 7am-12noon Saturday & Sunday) and the Jazz Alley Creole Deli open daily for lunch and dinner (noon-midnight), both offer dining with a relaxing view overlooking our serene courtyard, pool and patio area

New Orleans is spendy. The French Quarter (where you want to be) is arround $130 and up. I stayed at the Best Western French Quarter Landmark Hotel and it was cheap and super cool! http://www.qixo.com has some other great hotels that take your out of the country credit cards. Or check out http://www.bestwestern.com
Try www.figstreet.com/guesthouse/ or the Youth Hostels in New Orleans.
I use Prytania Park Hotel. It's in the Garden District and provides a free shuttle bus to the Convention Center, French Quarter & St. Charles (trolley street). Often offers weekday get-one-free promotions.
Be forewarned: you'll need the shuttle to reach the Fr Quarter (15 blocks).
