    We're booked at the Iberville Suites just two blocks off Bourbon and one block off Canal.  The rate is $169 and it shares the roof w/ the Ritz Carlton w/ many of the same amenities.

      Russ, I,ve stayed at the Dauphene Orleans several times and I totally agree with the reccommendation. Their bar makes the best sazerac I've ever had.

        I've also stayed at the Dauphine.  

        It's one of my favorite places and I've stayed at many.

        It was many years ago.  We arrived about 9PM.  As we were trying to check in there was a line of frantic people checking out.

        When it was our turn we asked what the hurry was about.  They said that a hurricane was due to hit the next day.  (Not Katrina)  Everyone was leaving town!

        We asked if it would be safe and they said that there would be no problem and we could always go into the courtyard if we were afraid to be by a window.

        The next morning we walked around the Quarter.  We were the only ones on the street   Everything was boarded up!  I never knew that shutters were anything other than decoration.  Not only were the shutters closed on all of the buildings, but they had chain link fencing on top of the shutters.

        When the hurricane hit, it hit Pensacola.  We were spared and the Picayune's headline read in huge print:  PHEW

        My favorite part was that when I was in the shower my traveling partner went downstairs and he brought me up the complimentary donuts.

        The staff at the Dauphine are the nicest I've come across.  They were so nice that I sent them a thank you gift when I got home!  (I had a lunitic stalker calling them every few minutes about me and driving them crazy)

        You won't do wrong staying there.

        (If you have a lunatic calling you, the staff will by happy to tell them that you've changed hotels!!!)

        Sure do wish I could join everyone in New Orleans.

        I'm so depressed!  I really want a Sazerac!

          Awesome list of great places to eat in NOLA. Cochon/Cochon Butcher are awesome.
          No Camellia Grill??

          When I'm down for the Festival, I'm staying on St. Charles Ave (I'll take the streetcar to Canal and walk the rest of the way to the Festival) for about $100/night. I stay there every time I'm in town. Avenue Garden Hotel in the 1500 block. Nice little boutique hotel - small rooms, but who cares? I'm not there to sleep! The staff is friendly, and I've never seen a bug.

            Do they still serve shrimp in the shell steamed in beer and then iced at Acme Oyster House?

              We LOVE Iberville Suites and have stayed several times. For Superbowl, we are going to try Chateau Bourbon.

                I don't know about steamed in beer. Acme has boiled seafood - whatever is in season - shrimp, crawfish, etc.
