Tip a local gave me: "Don't eat off Bourbon Street" Bourbon Street is mostly bars and clubs for getting drunk, not for dining. Avoid if you have children with you.
SpringHill Suites by Marriott has decent internet and complimentary breakfast. The TVs in the room also have 'Internet TV' where you can log in to your own Hulu/Netflix and watch on the large TV.
Ubers and Taxis are very easy to get for when you don't want to walk.
