While planning my trip to New Orleans 2 months ago, I checked all around the internet for great (cheap) prices for flights and accommodation (ask my friend John and he will tell you that I’m very good at spotting good deals). My flight to New Orleans from Nashville cost me about $69 (One way) but I used my miles with South West Airlines to book it.
But it seems every time I check there seems to be no good prices for accommodation and that got me a little worried. I noticed because of the Mardi Gras, most hotels were either sold out or ridiculously expensive. So I decided to settle for the hostel option which turned out to be a good decision as the Quisby Hotel cost be just $51 each night.
