    My mom and I stayed here in March 2011 over spring break. It was the right price but we learned our lesson. It's not in a good part of town and the parking lot was extremely small and hard to find a place to park....More

    Well, first off, most of these reviews are pretty accurate. This hotel is as far from luxury as you'll find. However, I don't agree with those who say this is like an hourly hotel with hookers and drug dealers running around. And as tired and...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

    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.
