FWIW, I booked a room today, and the person on the Wyndham reservations line
said there was NO availability to stay Monday or Tuesday...completely booked
up according to her...
Not a big deal, as there are numerous B & B's in Faubourg Marigny (just east
of the French Quarter, VERY lovely neighborhood) that have great rooms far
cheaper than the Wyndham...
Having been there many times before, I recommend staying between Frenchmen
St. and Esplanade, where the side streets are nice and quiet and less than 5
minutes walk to just about anything you could want to do in the Quarter...
