          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

          I'd like to know why you haven't let your sons take over and renovate your "hotel" because it looks like from all the reviews that are current that things are even worse now than before Hotel Impossible came?! What a great location to allow such despicable business practices. Are you seriously having housekeeping clean toilets and sinks with one rag? And for all rooms? The health department really should shut you down for most likely making people sick!

          Wish I could answer. Have not been back, but I doubt much has changed. Although, the room taped in the episode was MUCH "nicer" than the pit we stayed in.
