    TripAdvisor never paid the hotel the money that I paid TripAdvisor when I made my reservation. So I couldn’t even get my room and was out $355. Not to mention I had to find another hotel last minute (during my vacation) at the highest rate....More

    The empress was a very nice and comfortable place for me! Clerks were friendly and assisted me with what I needed. Very good price to be located so close to the French quarter. I will definitely be returning there when needed!

    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.
