Answer by letitia
We stayed at this hotel that is two blocks from Bourbon street called Cotton Exchange Hotel. It’s not that expensive, within walking distance of everything. The bar called Dominic downstairs, we had so much fun. It’s the perfect place to stay, I’m booking a room again for the fourth of July next year.

    The Richeliu has free parking for people who stay at the hotel.

    Also Nothing is going to be real cheap in the quarter. Look at prices on hotels.com and look at the HOliday Inn French Quarter.

    Local Bars not in the quarter- Victorian Lounge at the Columns, Bridge Lounge, Delachaise, fat harrys, Bull Dog, Balcony bar, St. Joes, brunos, rendezvous, Lucys retired surfers bar(warehouse district), Monkey Hill, Le Bontemps Roule,
    Local Dive Bars- Ms. Maes(cheap Drinks and open 24 hrs), Three Brothers,
    Maple Leaf Bar, Mayfair, Harrys,

    The best po boy sandwich is Domilise’s a little family owned place outside of the quarter and is cash only.This is a best kept secret.

    The Royal St. Charles goes often for very cheap depending on whats in town that week. Its a block off Canal and Three blocks from Bourbon. Its a perfect location with foot traffic at all hours so we never felt unsafe when we were there three weeks ago. I got an AMAZING sale on expedia when the hotel went down to $ 39 a night for three nights! Worth every penny. Rooms are kind of small but not bad. Note they have a mandatory $ 8.95 charge per night for wifi and phone.
