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.

... in Dar. We spent a day and a night meeting both families, who would have thought our appointment card would have been so full in Raleigh! We didn't have time to sight see as we were doing something better, seeing friends. Coming full circle on our USA road trip we had another Greenacres reunion, staying with Meron, with Tabu and Annie living across the hall. We spent a weekend crossing Maryland, Virginia and going into DC. Tom and I wanted a tour of the ...

We enjoyed the view and music as we ate ...
... the good parents accolade may have been lost.
Bye bye New Orleans and bye bye Louisiana it had been a blast. The road out of NO is wicked as you drive over an enormous bridge - the biggest in the US - which was gorgeous at sunrise. We quickly passed through Mississippi (again) though this time without stopping. And into Alaaaahbammma. We didn't stop here on purpose except for our third (and hopefully final) encounter with the cops, the first being Las Vegas when ...
... they send the aforementioned street cleaning truck down the street twice a day.
It feels like we have stepped into war zone. One in which a battle has recently been waged, with the walking wounded staggering around, while the victims from last night are all tucked up in their beds sleeping off their injuries. Well if you can't beat them, i guess you have to join them. Pretty much everyone we had spoken to about New Orleans had mentioned two places, Pat O'Briens and Cafe ...
... the street and in to different places with your drink. It was like a street party, it was so busy, amazing atmosphere and music blasting out of everywhere. God knows how many daiquiris later and we reluctantly headed back. French toast & iced tea sorted the hangover the next day. Chilled out at a cafe for most of the day and went to the cinema in the evening. Saw captain Phillips which was brilliant and in true American style they had ...
