A man is dead, and one hurt after a shooter opened fire on rapper French Montana’s tour bus outside of the Holiday Inn Express on Penn's Landing late last night. We hope this isn’t the hotel HC just wrote about that recently opened. If so the property certainly isn’t off to a good start!
French, the man behind the popular club and radio banger “Pop That” had just finished a show at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia and was not hurt.
According to NBC Philadelphia News, when the artists’ tour bus arrived around midnight on Christopher Columbus Boulevard near the Holiday Inn Express where he and his group had rooms reserved, a crowd formed outside the bus. A car then pulled up and opened fire on the crowd, hitting a 27-year-old man in the abdomen and a 29-year-old man in the shoulder, according to Chief Inspector Scott Small.

With everyone saving their party game for March 8—Mardi Gras—there are plenty of well-priced hotels in New Orleans for this long weekend. And it being New Orleans, visitors won't exactly be given short shrift on drinking and carousing just because the official holiday is still a couple weeks away.
And so to the booking engine we go! The bad news is that the French Quarter hotels are, for the most part, sold out for Saturday night. But many Canal Street properties, which are on the edge of the Quarter anyway, have rooms for the night like the Holiday Inn French Quarter ($200) and the Marriott ($219). The InterContinental is at $195 for Saturday night; the Westin Canal Place is at $269. But the deal of the bunch is the Best Western Saint Christopher at just $109 for Saturday.
