Dear Ann,
I am very happy to help!
I like to stay in the French Quarter on a quiet street that is walkable to many attractions, such as the Madison Dupuy. (Du-pwee)
You can then walk to the St Charles Streetcar, the French Market, St. Louis Basilica, the Pontalba Apts., the Jazz Museum, the Aquarium, the Presbytere, the ST. Louis Number One Graveyards,
You can easily pick up a tour to see plantations such as Oak Alley or Nottaway, swamp tours with gators, etc.
Also there are great eats in the French Quarter that are walkable: Galatoire's, Bayona, casual- the Gumbo Shop, the Famous Fairmont Hotel's restaurant Domenica, and so much more.
Cafe du Monde is also not to be missed for cafe au lait and beignets.
Take a ride down the St. Charles Ave. on the streetcar, and ogle beautiful mansions, dives, and two universities. Visit Audubon Park or City Park for the live oaks bedecked with Spanish Moss.
Listen to live jazz as you walk down touristy Bourbon St. 
Shop for antiques on Royal St.
Magazine St. is a hotspot for all things fun, including the Israeli restaurant Shaya. Many antique shops and regular shops, art galleries, etc. await you!

Enjoy,
Patsie

Dear Patsy,

I am assuming your email is still the same.  If not, guess this will bounce back to me!

That you so much for your offer of an Hotel recommendation in your favorite city and some hints on “must-dos” while we are visiting.  We plan to be in NO the first part of November so the weather should be lovely.  Can’t wait and i am so appreciative of your insight.

Washington, DC and the Watergate Hotel

The Watergate Hotel, new and modern! Made infamous by Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal, today's Watergate Hotel is sleek and the epitome of modern design.
