We were on a low budget break or at least not wishing to eat out all the time. We visited NOLA at Mardi Gras which was a fantastic experience,There was a nice kitchenette and the location is about 20 minute quiet pleasant walk along the river to the ferry which takes you where you want to be.
Like most cities now you need to be careful after dark. The bar on the ferry terminal arranged for a taxi to take us back which was a pleasant end to each day.
The staff at Federal City were exceptionally pleasant and helpful, if we return to New Orleans we would stop here againMore
