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!

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
