This place is so-so. Overall looks old. The room smells a bit funny and location is in a rougher part of the city. It''s OK if you're on a tight budget. In hindsight, New Orleans is probably one of those cities where it is worth going over your typical budget to stay in the French Quarter.

Went back to the hotel to checkin online for tomorrows flights. OK for the Delta one but may have problems for the American Airline as its a codeshare on QANTAS and wouldn't assign a seat. Hopefully we'll be on it and not laid over in LA. Fingers crossed as after a phone call from Silv, Ian is quite looking forward to getting home now. Awwww.
Maybe one more blog entry for the journey ...
