The budget hotel in New Orleans usually means that it is further from French Quarter. And that's perfectly fine with most visitors. All the hotels in downtown charge a steep price for parking - an upwards of $30 per night. Having a car or a rental becomes very pricy. Budget hotels have more space and will let you park free - great savings right there. Some of those hotels are close enough for walking to the main action, others require a 10 minute drive and parking on the street. If you want to avoid both of those, hop on the street car and ride for $1.25.
