My husband and I and our 3 friends stayed at the Crescent Palms last Christmas. I can't speak highly enough of the place, especially the staff. Managers Kendall and John were amazingly sweet and helpful. They went out of their way to help us in many occasions - even when we were stranded without a rental car and no more reserved nights on new years eve, they found us a room and a car! The area gets a really bad rep, but we never felt unsafe, and its nice to be away from all the tourists and stay at a place with real character. We took the bus and the tram into town and never had a problem. The room was clean, warm in the chilly winter nights, showers worked perfectly, and there was always plenty of clean linen. The bar was cozy, and Kendall and John would come hang out with us on their break. Very very nice people. We missed them after we left! I will go back to New Orleans, and I will stay at the Palms again! I highly recommend the place: comfortable, great atmosphere, and affordable. By the other reviews that I see on this site, it looks like I'm not the only one who felt that way: when you are treated so well by such lovely people, it shows. Thank you for a wonderful stay!! Sara, Juan, Josafat, Ana & Vanessa
I am very happy to report that I was personally contacted by the owner Giselle who remembered the transaction and extended a store credit on the erroneously purchased dress! So, I retract my review on Yelp and YP. She does have some cute clothing. The only reason this place gets a 1 star is because I cannot leave a review without clicking on a star. Don't go here. The owner will talk your head of to the point of distraction. I mistakenly purchased a sale item that the owner acknowledged did not fit when I tried it on before checkout. I realized my error immediately and contacted the store. I did not request a refund but only store credit toward an immediate purchase of 2 additional non sale items. Apparently this chatterbox would rather have a one time $60 sale to a patron who will NEVER SHOP THERE AGAIN than have my immediate additional sales and continuing business. Its her loss. There are tons of shops on Magazine. I'll shop elsewhere from now.
Me, my wife and two other couples stayed at the Crescent Palms Motel in New Orleans, (www.crescentpalmsmotel.com) We stayed during the weekend of Mardi Gras for $89 per night..The motel is a newly renovated vintage motel..Its like stepping back into the early 60s. A cool lounge at the motel, lobby and the rooms are unbelievable large. The beds are very comfortable, and super clean. When we checked in Vanessa at the Front Desk called our room and invited us all down to the bar for a cocktail on the house. The motel is only 5 mins away from French Quarter. Easy to get a cab! The bar had gumbo and red beans & rice for us and great music..This motel is the best kept secret in New Orleans..I have never stayed at a First Class Motel like this one!! Great job to all the staff at the Motel and we will miss you Vanessa, thanks for the great home cooked food!! YOU ROCK!!
The Trashy Diva Lingerie store! They've got one of the biggest selections of real steel-boned corsets in the South, plus tons of great lingerie lines like Mary Green, Chantal Thomass, Honeydew, Felina, Jezebel, Huit, Aubade... Totally amazing and not too "trashy" at all! There's some great super affordable stuff as well as some lust-worthy higher end European brands. MUCH better than Victoria's Secret.
I can't remember the girl's name but she was very helpful. She assisted me the best way possible that she could. The clothes are fantastic & fit great. As a joke I told her, when checking out, that she should be my personal stylist. But they actually do allow appointments! So next time I plan to be in New Orleans I will be hitting them up! :)
I have shopped with Yvonne LaFleur since she opened the shop. The collection is gorgeous and the service excellent. I do not understand these other reviews. Either they have been posted by a jealous competitor or these "ladies" were in the wrong store. If I were you, I would disregard them.
Everyone has been 100% nice everytime I was in the shop. Did the reviewer above complain to management or just give this shop a bad rating? I know the girls at Trashy Diva and I cannot imagine this ever happened. Don't let a hater fool you, this shop is a class act!
A wonderful hotel bar with a New Orleans feel inside and out. Enjoy a drink under the oaks or inside in very quaintly decorated bar. Friday and Saturday night can get a little young and preppy with the students from Tulane and Loyola.
My family and I came to New Orleans for a family reunion and needed transportation. The driver was very courteous and was well attentive to my needs. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Thanks The Miller Gang
What a great store! All the dresses and purses are so beautiful! Super friendly owner too. I love the music she plays. Very artsy decor and a wide selection of sizes for every figure! Not expensive either.
