Spring Break 2K13

So this year for spring break we finally made a decision and we’re going to New Orleans.  Its my turn to plan the trip and I’m getting the essentials but now it seems as though I’m in a predicament.  I need to find somewhere for us to stay for a week.  So it occurred to me that I could venture out and seek the advice of others.  That being said: anyone have any suggestions on where to stay?  And which one do you think would be cheaper, a hotel or a bed and breakfast?  We’re not driving down there so I would prefer if we were in a hotel as close to ‘stuff’ as possible <preferably the French Quarter>.  Keep in mind that we are college students [the struggle is real man]. 

But yea, any input is quite appreciated. 

*Thanks a bunch*
