The front desk staff were very helpful. He explained tours and memorable places to eat. Rooms were very comfortable and definitely the best deal in town. Was just a couple blocks from the French Quarter. I definitely felt safe staying there and walking to the...More
Hey, I don't judge...everybody has to find a place to lay their head at some point. This "hotel" just happens to be one of those places where those who are really down and out call it "home." Seriously, the prostitution and drug activity was crazy...More

I looked at this hotel and felt comfortable booking into it knowing it wasn't the nicest place in town. What I didn't know was that my room would be next to several drug users who would bother me every time I stepped in and out...More
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
