Looking for French Quarter hotel with balcony?

Wife and I are wanting to stay 1 night at a hotel in the French Quarter. We want to stay in a room with a balcony. I'm looking to spend a max of $300....hoping to be closer to $250ish. I was thinking about going the weekend of Halloween. Would that be fun or just too crazy to enjoy? It would have to be that weekend or the weekend before Halloween. Anyone who knows much about New Orleans able to give some advice/suggestions? Thanks a bunch!

    Halloween weekend is a popular time to go. Many (probably most) hotels will have 2-3 night stay minimums. Many hotels have a minimum stay requirement for any weekend, not just special event weekends..

    There are lots of FQ hotels with balconies. Were you hoping for a balcony that overlooks Bourbon Street? Or just a balcony overlooking any street in the FQ? For Bourbon Street, it's very pricey and will almost certainly have a 2 night minimum stay on any weekend.

    Lastly, many hotels are already sold out for Halloween weekend. Of the ones that still have availability, some have higher rates.

    Pick another weekend, and for your budget you can find a balcony room that is not directly overlooking Bourbon Street.

    French Quarter is a famed district attracting numerous visitors every year. It’s said that there’s a story to tell behind every corner of the French Quarter, including its numerous hotels. As you’re looking for hotels with balconies, I find nice recommendations for your budget.

    Andrew Jackson Hotel, French Quarter Inns

    919 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA 70116

    This is a lovely hotel with a desirable location in the heart of the French Quarter. The Bourbon Street and Jackson Square are just steps away. The whole hotel features a beautiful setting of 18th century Creole courtyard. Your guestrooms will also have celebrated wrought-iron balconies and you can overlook the Royal Street. Its nightly rate just starts from $132, much lower than your budget.

    Chateau Bourbon, A Wyndham Historic Hotel

    800 Iberville Street, New Orleans, LA 70112

    This charming historic hotel provides spacious accommodations and lush courtyards. Of course, the hotel has balconies for your needs. This business-friendly hotel has a nightly rate from $159.

    Omni Royal Orleans

    621 St. Louis Street, New Orleans, LA 70140

    As for your budget, I think this hotel is a nice option. The Omni Royal has a convenient location in the heart of French Quarter. But it’s located on a quiet road, away from the hustle and bustle of the noisy Bourbon Street. You can ask for Premier Rooms with a Balcony overlooking St. Louis or the legendary Royal Street. Get the best available rate for a premier room at $239 per night.

    As you’re planning to spend the Halloween weekend in New Orleans, it certainly would be very fun. Go to one of the many famous haunted tours through the French Quarter. First you can check out some of the Voodoo shops to have a better understanding of its history. Then go to the costume shops and pick up your costume. As for the details on New Orleans Halloween, you can check the following websites:
