Impact of Short Term Rentals in New Orleans

Have you ever visited New Orleans and stayed in a short term rental through AirBnb, VRBO, or another service? If so, you probably got a great deal, but do you wonder about the impact on the community?

Join me and reporter Kevin Litten for a discussion of the current state of affairs and the impact of short term rentals in New Orleans.

Sponsor: The Old 77 Hotel and Chandlery

When you’re ready to make your plans to visit New Orleans, you’ll need a place to stay! The Old 77 is ideally situated in the Warehouse District, just three blocks from the French Quarter. It features a variety of pet-friendly rooms, the award-winning Compere Lapin restaurant, and more.

You’ll love the location, the rooms, and the food, but the details and the service are what you’ll fall in love with!
