Balcony in November

Hey everyone, I am planning a trip to New Orleans in November with my wife to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We're planning on staying at the Royal Orleans...close enough to all the action, but not smack dab in the middle of it.

My question is, I really want to get a balcony room, but how is the weather in November? Is it even worth it or am I just wasting my money?

I love a balcony at any time of year personally, but I was there last November and the November before and the weather was very nice, but a bit unpredictable. One day, it was 80 and everyone was wearing shorts. The next day, the sun didn't shine and the temps dropped down to where people were putting jackets on. The nights tend to be chilly. However, I did use our balcony and enjoyed it. We were there mid November.

TFKNJ, we were there from Nov. 5th to Nov 13th, 2010. I actually kept track of the daily temps! The first 3 days were chilly (but not while the sun was up!) Highs were 62/63 and the lows were 45/48.

The remaining days were much nicer! The high temps were 70/78 and the lows were 48/50. We also had a balcony and enjoyed mid-day breaks sitting in the sun! We didn't use it much at night, but we DID use it! Unless it's super expensive to upgrade to a balcony room, I presonally don't think it's a waste of money!

Balcony's are fine but they are not a necessity in NOLA because you won't be in your room that often. Some like them and some don't. When you open the doors of your hotel in the FQ you will receive quite a bit of noise because the streets are so narrow. I prefer rooms without a balcony.

The weather is usually fine in NOLA just about year round. You will have good days and then some that are cold and windy. You will have a great time. Enjoy.
