I'd have been happier in a hotel, and there are comparably priced options in the area on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).
Basic and clean, the room offered limited resources in the kitchen and with toiletries and linen. The refrigerator had a couple half full Gatorade bottles leftover from the last guest which made me question what else was overlooked by housekeeping. A Water Boil Notice from the city was left on the kitchen counter without a single pot in the unit in which to boil water.
My real issue is the blatant lack of communication with the host. We had handed over nearly $600 for the weekend and only received the guest book and details 15 minutes AFTER our check in time. I had made attempts to contact host through Airbnb days before the trip, and both called and text on the day of our reservation. The last minute communication had me feeling I was going to arrive in NOLA without accommodations and be an Airbnb horror story.
Parking is expensive and complicated in the area. I overlooked this detail of my trip, and options are not well covered in the post. The host offers a $20/night spot according to the guestbook we received late. When I text him about wanting the spot and details on the location and best way to get payment over, he never responded back... not in the 3 nights we stayed.
Clearly no one lives in this apartment. It is a rental and passive income stream for a host who is not at all interested in that fluffy Airbnb "help you with your stay" stuff. Next trip to NOLA I'm staying at the Drury Inn and Suites with a rooftop pool down the street. It's about $30 cheaper each night, and if I run out of toilet paper I can visit the front des for a free roll. Skip this place.
