My husband and I are planning a 20th anniversary trip for the last weekend in June. We plan to stay 3 nights, so that gives us 2 full days, plus arrival evening and departure morning.
As for hotels, we probably want to stay in the French Quarter. After a bit of research, we are interested in Hotel Mazarin, Place d'Armes, Hotel Provincial, or Omni Royal. Is there are clear winner (or two) in this group? Or do you have a better suggestion? Our priorities are location/convenience and local character/charm/ambiance.
Obviously with our limited time, we want to hit the highlights and must see/do's without running all over town in the blazing heat. Any suggestions for a 2 day itinerary? Our priorities are enjoying great Cajun food, live music, and learning about the history/culture of the city, while sipping a cocktail or two:). We prefer to self-tour, rather than be herded around in a group lol;).
Thanks in advance. The TA community is the absolute best source for planning a trip, and I really appreciate your input!
