Really felt like I was just living in Joe and Flo's home.
It is about 15 minutes from Bourbon Street and the rest of the action in a quiet part of town. Close to a couple of really great places to eat (Lil Dizzy's and Cajun Seafoods). Across the highway at night is a little sketchy but no real issues. The rooms are generously sized and comfortably air conditioned. Small common areas and quite a small population of stayers meant the place was nice and quiet. Though they do have 24 hour access and always someone a phonecall away for the night owls. Staff were super friendly and helpful in organising tours and suggesting places to hang out.
Would definitely recommend, gives you a little escape from the hoopla of Bourbon without being isolated.

After lunch we went next door to watch craftsmen building brass gas lamps at a company called Bevolo. Yes, the kind they have on lamp posts in various places, like the Gaslamp District in San Diego. In fact, they built those very lights. They had a showroom next door with indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures. They were beautifully crafted and the prices were commensurate with the time and material it took ...
... day was buying salt water taffy! If you haven't seen the episode of Friends where Ross eats a whole lot of taffy then you need to! Cat, Jayde and Aaron - I know you would have seen it! It's interesting. Just flavoured chewy candy really. They do a neapolitan flavour which is quite delicious. Tastes just like the ice cream! We picked out all the liquorice ones. Will find an innocent bystander to palm them off too. It's officially been ...

Cemeteries have a strange allure for me. I, myself, do not wish to be buried. I will pass on that. It has always mystified me why we have a need to mark our lives with a giant tomb…or any marking at all. I guess people have a need for their existence to live on in some way. Most people would say it is simply so others can have a place to remember them. I never understood that as I think I ...
The trip has all gone pretty smoothly, until the very last day. We arrived at the train station about 6:00 a.m. for a 7:00 train, only to discover that the train would be delayed about 4 hours. No explanation was offered, but another, more insistent passenger, gleaned the information that the down train, due in around 7:00 the night before, was delayed about 9 or 10 hours because it was behind a freight train that derailed. Not good. They had to just ...
... people, they were here on a street full of bars and venues, but they weren't doing anything. Just walking. Bars were empty but most of those on the streets had drinks. So the thing to do here in bourbon is to drink on the street and walk from one end to the other? Some people were up on balconies grabbing walkers attention and throwing down bead necklaces for something. I heard a group of girls tell a fat guy on the street to 'show us your Dick' all for a cheap necklace. ...
