Let the good times roll in New Orleans, 2012

I'm looking for an affordable hotel in New Orleans, ideally in the French Quarter. I'm coordinating a meetup of friends in 2012. Right now we're considering April 20-22 but are open to other dates. We've only started to look but the early prices we've been quoted are $320 a night (at Holiday Inn French Quarter) which our group can't handle. Group rates are lower, but we may not be able to guarantee 10 rooms.
We need a hotel that's as conveniently located as possible to attractions and transit as many people won't have cars. Some of the older hotels without elevators (I love the Hotel Provincial) won't work as some in the group have balance/walking issues. Ideally a pool and hot tub, but we can sacrifice those for price. Some are worried about safety as far as a location goes, so we--lit, busy areas would probably put them at ease.
We've got a number of people who can help us by calling hotels and checking prices and availability, but we need suggestions of hotels to try. Thanks for any help!
