We then went to the French Quarter and I still feel dirty just from walking there. My wife did have fun window shopping by the mask and hat stores on Royal Street. The famous Bourbon Street is just gross.
You went around Mardi Gras season. What did you expect...
my parents went during mardi gras and stayed in french quarter and had nice time. y gross?

dad just  visited, and when he asked someone for kosher restaurant they recommended "Shaya". after driving a while to get there, he was impressed with the ambiance, loft seating... until he looked at menu and found their steak served with whipped feta! just a heads up
there are some other kosher restaurants notably a very good Moroccan place and a waffle place that are very good

Smelled like vomit and urine. Still had extremely loud music blasting and people completely wasted on the streets...in middle of the day. My wife was also offered beads (hameivin yovin)

both were really good

Do any basic research on Mardi Gras and you will understand why most ppl on this forum would describe the atmosphere on bourbon st as disgusting (does not require one to me a מבין)

The worst time to go is during Mardi Gras.
It is too crazy to enjoy...

And with that same logic I'd imagine most people would avoid it during that time altogether if they want to avoid that atmosphere.

Absolutely. I was there the week after for a conference and it still smelled.

Just read the entire thread. Thinking of going to NOLA for 2 nights/1 day over Chol HaMoed Pesach. Obviously the restaurants are not going to be open.

1. Is it worth going for such a short stay?
2. Where's the "best" place to stay? The Sheraton Metairie is now 7k/night, the Hilton Riverside is 60k night and Hyatt is either 12k or 15k night. Is downtown, Metairie or the FQ better?

Most of the things to do are pretty concentrated.

I had a conference in the Hilton so we stayed there. Nice room with a view of the river.
I personally hated everything about the French Quarter so I'm the wrong person to ask
