The following reviews were submitted by a fellow TravelPage.com reader.

USA: Louisiana - New Orleans

New Orleans, the city, and adjoining area are worth a visit. We love both old jazz and good food so were not disappointed. In fact we strolled Bourbon St. each night. The mix of cultures and history could keep you exploring for a long time. We squeezed in a plantation tour, which was superb, a swamp tour also great but as we were caught in a deluge, we'd like to do it again, city tours and walking tours. Great fun! The steam paddlewheeler is a must for first timers but not as interesting as some other trips. Our hotel on the edge of the French Quarter was clean, quiet and the staff was great. Another time we'd like to try a guest hotel.

Getting There
Our connections were by air from Kelowna - Van. - Dallas - N.O. On arrival taxi or limos available. $21.00 is standard rate. As we were advised not to walk the 4 blocks from our hotel to Bourbon St. at night we cabbed home each night at a cost of $5.00 w/tip. Connections were smooth and easy even for novice travellers.

Clean, quiet, friendly, close enough for daylight walking. Three floors, no elevator. Small rooms. Another time we might try staying closer in the quarter.

Food and Service
Food anywhere in the city is tops. We tried to stick to one substantial meal a day with lots of walking. Our favorite was Mike Anderson's, the food was substantial, well prepared, large selection of fresh seafoods and service was great. http://www.mikeanderson.com.

On a one day visit you will want to cover as much of the French Quarter as possible because of the history, then try to get to the garden district to see the famous mansions, wonderful architecture.We had to walk through Marie Laveau's Voodoo Museum, great fun.

Some hotels have pools.

Some hotels offer babysitting recommedations.
