When I booked the hotel room, they told me no dice on Sunday or Monday
Just as well, as MANY of the B & B's are 2-night minimums anyway...
We managed to book a 2-bedroom suite in a nice B & B in Faubourg-Marigny for
$74 per night - so there are deals out there - but they're filling up fast
with the American Psychiatric Association in town...
Also recommend reading TripAdvisor reviews, which saved us from one B & B
that looked great on their website, but had reviews talking about moldy
showers and lumpy beds ;-)
Either way, looking forward to being in my other favorite city of all time :-)
