Any review over 1 star has to be BOGUS! I have stayed in $20 rooms in Mexico that were nicer. There was only one pillow on the bed and it was flat. The sink was falling off the wall and I was afraid to walk...More
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!
My friend and I booked the Empress despite the negative reviews we read here and on other sites. We were travelling on a budget and were willing to sacrifice luxury for economy. I was prepared for the hotel to be dreadful... it was not!!! Dated,...More
I recently stayed at the Empress. We had an enjoyable stay. The rooms were nice and for exactly what we needed. It was clean and had complementary coffee. Just a few blocks from The Quarters. Will definitely stay there again.
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
and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
