Just returned after 25 years and not a damn thing has changed. Well nothing on Bourbon Street. Bourbon still smells of stale beer, rotting trash, vomit, and disappointment. If you can get pass the bourbon street mess, you'll find a new and vital quarter full...More

Loved our time here last week. I don't think I could handle Mardi gras because a simple weekend in September was unbelievable. It is a lot of fun and an experience not to be missed.

This place is the most amazing and unique adventure every time you go. Whatever your flavor (wine, daiquiri, rum, oyster, etc) they have it all. Architecture, history, adventure, and death all in the same city blocks. Find Chargrilled Oysters at New Orleans Cookery or Dragos....More

A great experience of a flea market with a food and vegetable market. Several permanent shops are also in the immediate area of the French Market. Don't miss the chicory coffee and the beniets. A great little break and breakfast.

Stayed at St Marie Hotel 1/2 block from Bourbon St. No issues with noise from the streets below our rooms. Historical buildings and streets. Amazing restaurants and nightlife. Go to Pat O'Brian's for the best Hurricanes.

This was a good area to be. Everything was in walking distance and whatever you needed was in the area.

Music is great. Some food is great. People watching is over the top. Streets and sidewalks are uneven, so be careful. This is a very old city so things like that can be expected all over. Beautiful, historic buildings.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
