I also did some *rough calculations (included the separate rates for Fri &Sat, fee of $20 for 4 extra people, and 13% tax) and for a total of 6 people in one room it would be about $223 to stay from Friday the 26th until Thursday the 1st. I don't think that's too unreasonable to pay the regular rate for one night to stay a whole week and have plenty of time to do things all over New Orleans.
That being said, I'm willing to be the one to make the reservations and pay with my own card if anyone is interested. I will, however, need to have the payment for the room sent to me via Paypal (preferred), mail order, or check, or have the funds transferred to me electronically before I can make the reservation.
So I'm willing to take in strays! And so no one has to sleep on the floor for 5 straight nights we could probably work out a rotation.
*Like I said, these are rough calculations so the estimate price is not yet guaranteed. I intend to make a call to Le Pavillon to confirm these rates and will post back when I find out what the price will be for sure.
