I called holiday Inn, Quality Innand Days Inn in N.O. and they do not offer free parking and they do not offer shuttle survice. We usually find if we stay in one of these that they offer free air port shuttles and often other shuttle services, but my travels are limited and often involove places like detroit and chicago. Not much help, call their toll free numbers of different motels and hotels. Good luck!!
Shannon, I don't know about parking since we fly into NOLA, but shuttle service from the airport is very reasonable. The Wingate is very reasonable at the airport. We are sailing May 1 and are paying $59.00 for the night and breakfast in the morning. You might check with them for longterm parking. Check with the pier for parking also. Priceline is doing a good job for hotels. If you put in garden district, 4 star hotel and a bid of about $50.00 you should be okay.. If I see something in my surfing travels I'll let you know. By the way, when are you sailing. That could alter amounts.
