What area is best to stay in Luang Prabang? We would like to be in walking distance of the main sites and shops. A view of the river would be nice. The area needs to be safe. Are there any hotels you recommend?

I don't think there are any unsafe areas in LP. Just don't walk down any dark alleys, drunk and/or alone, carrying lots of money.
Kingkitsarath Road is very quiet, has some nice places to stay that are cheap, and is located about 7 min walk from the main street where the night market and restaurants etc. are. Have a look at Sita Norasingh Guesthouse, it's cheap and friendly and spotlessly clean.
If you want a view of the Mekong you can look for something on Khem Kong Road, although I don't know the names of any hotels there.
