    I don't know if things have changed much in NO, but I stayed at the Intercontinental twice a month for about a year when I was doing contract work for Shell Offshore. Based on experience I can tell you that you need to get a cab to go to the Quarter from that hotel. :tu

    I think it's a lot nicer now, that being said I never walk around strange cities at night since I don't know what's safe and unsafe... Learned this in south America where one block can make a huge difference

    You'll soon learn that one block can make a huge difference in NOLA as well. One street is lined with five star restaurants, next one over looks like Beirut. Find the Irish Pub and talk to the good Irish girl there, she'll tell you where to go/not go :yes
