Four Points by Sheraton French Quarter

Hotel | "The Inn on Bourbon"

Quote:
This used to be a Best Western and is now a Ramada. The room are nice, pretty much standard 2 double beds, nice sized bathrooms. The rooms are not as nice as Bourbon Orleans and the price is similar.

The key to this hotel is the location. We had a room facing the back. It would be cool to have a room facing Bourbon St but I don't think you'd get much sleep.

They also have a nice pool.

We didn't eat there because there are so many great restaurants in NO we didn't want to eat at the hotel.

Note the price I have above is off season. All the hotels in NO raise the prices during special events.

This is the BIGGEST RIP OFF in the world!!! 37.50 for Eggs Benedict. We waited for 1/2 hour and had a very expensive Bloody Mary. I tell every one NOT to go there but people still do.

Cajun Cabin

Restaurant

Quote:
I am not sure of the address but its easy to find. Listen for the music. The place looks like a cajun cabin with lights and decorations up. They usually have a cajun or zydego band playing.

The food is typical cajun. Gumbo, etouffee etc. This place is a nice place to come if you want to listen to good music and not spend a fortune.

I am not sure if you need reservations; we went there with out any and had no problems. The prices are high but the service is wonderful and you don't feel ripped off. (see my review of Brennans). They have very professional waiters and they make the Ceaser Salad tableside. (That is impressive). They have different type oyster appetizers that are very good and the seafood entrees are great. The atmosphere is what makes it. The seating is outside and they have a fountain and trees. All in all this is a special treat type restaurant but worth it.

Well I have never been to a domed stadium. It's quite different from outside with real grass!! It was OK but I like the feel of being outside. We did enjoy the game. The fans there are a lot of fun without being jerks!! The 1/2 time entertainment was one of the Neville Brothers. Not one of the main ones but still good.

It was easy to get to the game and the crowds were orderly.

Since they were playing the Panthers there were a lot of Panther fans. The same goes when they play Atlanta.

PLease see website www.thelouisianageneralstore.com. This it the website for the store and school. I took the class 2 times. The cost was 20.00 but may have gone up. It is still worth it. The class starts at 10 with coffee and we has a teacher named Kevin. He is about 6'5 and 300 lbs. Born and raised in NO. The class is fun and Kevin is really funny. He made Jambalya, Creole and Pralines. WE got to eat it and wash it down with a beer. The class is in the store so of course after the class you are encouraged to spend more money on spices and cookbooks. I found that the French Market has a lot of the same things for lower prices. Try the Joe's stuff seasoning. You need to ...Read More

Well there is no place else like Bourbon Street.

Just walking up and down and watching people. You can get a to go cup of beer and just hang out, of course if you hear some music that you enjoy, then you can carry the beer in but they will make you purchase one there. Sometimes its fun to just hang out on the street and listen.

There are lots of shops and restaurants on Bourbon Street also. Some are very expensive and some are inexpensive like the Cajun Cabin. The T-shirts and souvenirs are less expensive at the French Market.

I love the French Market. They have all kinds of great things there. Get a start on your Christmas Shopping.

All kinds of cooking supplies and cookbooks and much less expensive than Bourbon Street shops.

T-shirts, hats, dolls, sunglasses and beads.

They don't bargain as things are all priced but still I find the prices are very good.
