Very close and easy to get on street car. Also a nice quiet neighborhood
The St Charles street car is a short walk from the house. The neighborhood was very quiet and relaxing
Amazing city and space!
Had a great stay. Great location & clean! Walking distance to some bars and restaurants. A quick Uber ride to the main attractions! Had a blast and can’t wait to come back to the Big Easy!
Everything you need in a nice clean fully equipped place. Only problem was the way floor.
It was the easiest check in ever. Just type in code and you are in. It had everything we need and wanted. Beds were very large and comfortable. Plenty of towels, etc. In a fairly nice neighborhood.
Building could use some updating.
Great location with nearby places to eat. Easy walk to St. Charles streetcar. We enjoyed our stay in this lovely neighborhood.
cheap and not very nice
You get what you pay for. I am one who reads and uses reviews so I want to be honest in this one. This place is pretty shabby. It was a pretty cheap price so my expectations were not high, yet I was still disappointed. The neighborhood is mixed with some nicer homes and we were fine with that part. The rooms are big and there is a king size bed in each bedroom. I also liked that there were two bathrooms. Most places in this price range had only one. That being said the furnishings were subpar, even for a rental. The floors are uneven throughout with cheap floor coverings and old carpet. The bed in the master was very uncomfortable and the pillows very flat. Luckily, we brought a couple extra ones. If you are looking for someplace cheap, near the Garden District, and don't really care if it's nice this place would work. Otherwise, I would pay a little more for somewhere nicer.
Good location for downtown activities. Near streetcar. Tv didn’t work very well. Needs updating
Historically, uptown was a direction, meaning movement in the direction against the flow of the Mississippi. After the Louisiana Purchase, many settlers from other parts of the United States developed their homes and businesses in the area upriver from the older Creole city. During the 19th century Canal Street was known as the dividing line between uptown and downtown New Orleans, the boundary between the predominantly Francophone area downriver and the predominantly Anglophone area upriver.
The very broadest definition of Uptown, historically, included everything upriver from Canal Street, which would encompass about one-third of the city. In the narrowest usage, as a New Orleans City Planning neighborhood, Uptown refers to an area of only some dozen blocks centering on the intersection of Jefferson and St. Charles Avenues. Neither of these is what most New Orleanians of recent generations usually mean by uptown. While some may quibble about the exact boundaries, Uptown broadly refers to the areas of the city closer to the River (river side of South Claiborne Avenue) and upriver from the Pontchartrain Expressway and the modern CBD/Warehouse District neighborhood.
The boundaries of the federal Uptown New Orleans Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, are the River to S. Claiborne Avenue and Jackson Avenue to Broadway. Adjacent areas, which are often colloquially referred to as parts of Uptown are other federal historic districts: Carrollton, the Garden District, the Irish Channel, Central City, and the Lower Garden District.
Uptown was developed during the 19th century, mostly from land that had been plantations in the Colonial era. Several sections were originally developed as separate towns, like Lafayette, Jefferson City, Greenville, and Carrollton. For a time in the early 19th century most of Uptown was part of Jefferson Parish until the City of New Orleans annexed them. In 1874, New Orleans added the towns of Lafayette (not to be confused with the present city of the same name in Lafayette Parish), and Carrollton. This newly absorbed area became known as Uptown New Orleans
People from other parts of the United States settled uptown in the 19th century, joined by immigrants, notably from Italy, Ireland, and Germany. Uptown has always had a sizable African American population. Census data shows that ethnically and racially mixed blocks were common in the 19th and early 20th centuries, which continues to be the case with much of Uptown.
