About this listing

The space

Greetings! This is my modern,1-bedroom apartment in the Central Business District (CBD) of New Orleans. It is one of 3 units in a building recently featured in the New Orleans' Times Picayune as a Historical Landmark.

Located 3 blocks from the Superdome and one street off of Canal Street, this space on the fringe of the French Quarter is ideal for a short or extended stay in the creole city.

The space itself includes a full kitchen with all new appliances, 1 bedroom, 1 bathrooms, two balconies (one that's entirely private), four fireplaces, washer/dryer, and a cozy living room. :)

One block from the Canal Streetcar and directly on the bus route, this location is optimal for accessing the city's local transportation and is a mere 4 block walk from the French Quarter. It is also located next to one of the city's best local lounges (Handsome Willy's) and a fantastic local pizzeria.

It's also ideal for Mardi Gras routes and JazzFest. Accompanies 2 comfortably. Could do three, depending on sleeping preferences! (couch or air mattress).

Lastly --- there is a TV that can be used for DVD viewing - but I recently decided to get rid of Cable. Just too much to do with my time and when I have TV as an option?! I am glued! Going back to old school. :)

Emily's place is awesome!!! It was dead in the middle of ALL of our events! It was clean, cozy and felt like I was walking into my own home. Her neighbors were also great - quiet! :) The neighborhood is safe - my friend and I went jogging every morning and had some late evenings walking back incidents!! Emily is a great hostess and gave lots of good info about her place and the city. I WILL definitely contact her for my next trip to Nola!!

We loved Emily's home! It was the perfect place to host our first trip to New Orleans since it had so much history and personality, just like the city. Although we spent the majority of our time out and about, we felt extremely cozy in her spacious one bedroom. The flat was smack-dab in the middle of commercial buildings a good walk away from most everything, but it made for a peaceful stay after a fun night in the busy French Quarter. I recommend Emily's adorable home to anyone who loves history, culture and a great location for a photoshoot!

Roomy, 3 room apartment with adequate amenities. This is like truly living in someones place. Emily had a keen sense of style and you can tell she call this Flat home. The apartment is in the central business district and a 10 minute walk to the french quarter. Probably not a great place to walk to by ones self at night but had no issues during the day or night. Overall those Flat is comfortable and quite but the location is not great

Emily's place was great! It is located in walking distance to the French Quarter, about a 10-15 minute walk. It's centrally located for the Canal Street and St. Charles streetcars, which take you all over the Quarter, or more downtown to where the museums are, or down into the garden district and Magazine St. The place itself was clean and welcoming, and Emily was available in case we needed anything. Although this did not bother us during our stay, I will point out that there is construction ongoing nearby that began around 9am each morning. We aren't particularly sensitive to street noise, but others may feel differently. Overall I would definitely stay with Emily again! It's location and charm are unbeatable!

We had a great stay at Emily's apartment! Quick walk to the French Quarter and very close to one of the cable car lines if you wanted to go somewhere further away. Emily was a great host & I would highly recommend staying here!

This was my first Airbnb experience and I'm happy to say it was awesome! Before the stay I had a few questions and Emily was always very quick to respond and her responses were always thorough. The apartment was clean, large and felt very safe. It was a 7 minute walk to Bourbon Street and it was really easy to get on the Streetcar so if you buy a pass you can get anywhere very quickly! Also, having wifi was awesome for a rainy night to watch some netflix! Emily made check-in and check-out very easy and convenient since we didn't know when we would show up. I recommend this apartment to couples or individuals that want to check out New Orleans and would personally go there again :). Also, the apartment had great style and was inspiring for decorating my own place!
