          Not in the French Quarter, but in a calm street just over the (polluted) canal. The owner is a nice guy, and so is his son. They will try to help you out even if all their rooms are occupied. Rooftop breakfast not included.

          Hello, three of us are coming to visit from Canada arriving March 5th around 11am. We are looking for either two rooms for two of us and one room for the other or a room to fit all three if that is all you have available. We want to stay until March 8th or 9th.
