Safe to stay on Esplanade?

Hi there, looking at staying at the Jean Lafitte House on Esplanade Ave and one review mentioned the area not being safe, while many other reviews mention feeling very safe and a great location. Now I'm confused and not familiar with the city at all... any help is appreciated!

Thanks Much!

No safety concerns whatsoever. Just be city-smart.

perfectly fine area. Like JJ said, just be city-smart (i.e. don't wander around hammered at 2 am!)

A coworker of mine stayed there about a year ago and loved it. She didn't mention any safety concerns at all.
