“Ok you have to do it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Good fun for a few hours, the scene is not ours and its dirty and crowded most of the time. That said walk on down to capture the full experience and just take it all with a grain a salt.

“Not as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Everything here is way over priced. The buildings are dirty and run down. I'm guessing its due to the weather they have, but you would think that the owners would at least clean the insides of their places.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This is a one of a kind area that you must see. Seriously, get a hotel in this area. It is safe and beautiful. We stayed on Canal, and nope! We made a mistake. We thought that we needed to be closer to the trolley. Nope. Just stay right in the middle of the culture, shopping and great eats! Stay in French Quarter!
