After our electricity went out during hurricane Isaac my husband and I spent 2 miserabe nights at home without a/c. We attempted to find hotel accomodations in the city but all the chains (marriott/hilton etc.) were not accepting reservations or walk-ins. A friend recommend Bougainvillea House, which was up and running and we were able to get in the same day. The proprietors were gracious and freindly. The suite was spacious and very comfortable. The highlight of the staywas the high end bed linens.
