  • Amazing!! Absolutely amazing!! My husband and I just had our wedding there last weekend and I can not say enough kind words about this staff and venue. We planned this wedding in six weeks from out of state and from beginning to end, it was perfect. It was so nice having everything in one spot and we really had very little to handle. They took care of EVERYTHING. One of our favorite moments was when one of the servers came out on the dance floor and showed us how to do the Cupid Shuffle. She rocked it!! So fun. Then, the next morning, having a relaxing cup of coffee on the same beautiful courtyard that held our family and friends the night before... perfect. Thank you so much! Loved every second of our day. Thank you.
  • Beautifully situated on Esplanade Ave, which I think is the most beautiful street in all of NOLA. The houses have different rooms. Each has it's own character. We stayed in the Mathilda. I do recommend that you call ahead and double check which room you get. Not all have jacuzzi tubs, or claw foot tubs. Some of the rooms need minor updates, nothing major, normal wear for older homes. The staff however!!!! Let me just say how much I love this staff!!!!! They are awesome!!! The breakfast ladies, two of the friendliest and best cooks in NOLA... Love their French toast.... The cleaning lady was super sweet always with a smile. And the ladies at the front desk were just splendid...
  • Small but informative. Cool spot, definitely can see why people have weddings there. Very friendly staff.
  • Got a tour for possible wedding venue. Staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. Got to meet the owner as well and he was very welcoming. This place is high up on our list for possible wedding venue.
  • Great management was very happy to share some history about the house, would recommend the tour for degas and history fans alike.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
