This was the most horrible, disgusting, dirty place I have ever been in. Very unorganised, unprofessional and very very very poor value for money.

Dirty, broken walls, peeling paint, defect shower, water dripping from the ceiling, insecure door. Cheap, but not even worth the money.

Due to a convention taking place, everywhere central was fully booked. We could have found a hotel several miles out, but the most important thing to us was to stay somewhere clean and conveniently situated. With some trepidation we booked the Empress, which is only 15 minutes' walk from Bourbon Street. We thought the reception staff were very efficient and friendly. The only problem for us was the complete lack of storage facilities. However, it was definitely worth what we paid.

The hotel building is very old that needs some serious repairment. The hotel room is very small and dirty, esp. bathroom. The bathtub drain is always clogged. We stayed in this place, regrettably, only for its proximity to the french quarter. I would not recommend this place.

You get what you pay for. Pretty cruddy facilities, but excellent location no more than 5 minute walk off Bourbon Street. Keep your head on a swivel during late night hours, poorly lit streets and no law enforcement presence.

The room smelled horrible. Only Paychos, and crack addicts stay there. I stayed for 10minutes and checked out. I did not get my money back. DO NOT STAY THERE!!! Not safe.
