    Don't stay in this hotel if you don't want your trip to be a disaster. BYW, not every room has wifi, guess you'll know if you're lucky or not. Travelling for sightseeing, but this hotel turned my dream into a nightmare

    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.
