Unfortunately me and my husband stayed here for fews nights. We were in the Gaston Room. I Don t know if the other rooms were better but our "suite" was terrible. During the night we couldn' t sleep because the conditioner was terribly noisy and without it you couldn' t breath. The breakfast was the only thing great. In the room there was a so mold smelly that all my dresses shoud be wash. Don't go there. That it s not a luxury residence as they write.

It was very exciting for us to be able to see the Degas House and to learn more about the painter's time spent in New Orleans as well as his rich Creole heritage. The tour was very interesting. Some day in the near future we would like to stay in B&B overnight.

I attended a wedding here durning a pending hurricane. The evening prior to it a curfew was put in force for the day of the wedding at 7pm and the wedding was to take place at 6pm. I called and spoke to David about my concerns as a guest and being able to return to my hotel by curfew. He stated that yes he had heard but they wouldn't be changing anything at this time. I brought up my concerns about how guests would get back to hotels after ceremony and his response was I'm not really sure, h... Read more

So you want to live the Degas experience? But are you willing to go back in time? We had to carry our luggage up the stairs (no elevator) to find a room without any windows. There was a terrible smell in there that forced us to wash all of our clothes as soon as we escaped to another hotel. As for the style a TV was posted on top of a fridge, next to a dusty all-time running AC. A mouse/cockroach trap was left next to it. A bulb was missing on our lamp; there were holes in the walls. The wifi wa... Read more

You do not necessarily need to be a history buff or an art lover to appreciate the Degas house. The tour and history of the family and of course Edward Degas himself is very interesting. The tour guide had a lot of first hand knowledge since she is a member of the family. I asked questions and she gave a lot of details beyond the simple answer. I would definitely recommend this short tour to anyone coming to New Orleans. It isnā??t you usual New Orleans experience.

We did not spend the night here (but we will next time we are in New Orleans). We really enjoyed brunch in the cozy dining room, followed by a tour. You don't need to be an art expert to appreciate the importance of Edgar Degas. I felt that the tour guide (a descendant of Degas) did a good job of explaining where Degas fit into the times of New Orleans as well as the Impressionist movement in France. To me, this is the best way to learn about art- one artist at a time...

My family went the day after Thanksgiving for breakfast and we were met with friendly faces asking if we wanted a Bloody Mary or a mojito. We were offered several choices including a variety of omelettes, French toast, sausage, bacon. You can't go wrong, as any choice here is a good choice. We all shared food and enjoyed good coffee. We met others visiting New Orleans. A Tour with the history of Edgar Degas followed, including a short award-winning documentary. Degas was the only French Impressi... Read more

I'm not rating the B&B experience - Just took the tour. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, but in my opinion, this tour left a lot to be desired. You watch an informative (but lengthy) video re: Degas in New Orleans. Then the tour - you look at prints of Degas paintings, sketches, etc - some of which have nothing to do with Degas' time in New Orleans - and hear the same information you heard ten minutes before in the video. The day we were there, the place was still set up from ... Read more

My wife arranged accommodation here, in no small part because she really loved the work of Degas, and I rather enjoy it myself. This was a tricky place to review for several reasons, not the least of which is that the house is, in many lovely respects, a period piece. Let me start by cautioning anyone expecting hi-spec, top-end arrangements that this may not be the place for you, with the possible exception of the Estelle Room. However, we stayed in the next room back on the second floor, the Jo... Read more

We are just getting done staying at the inn today and it has been a wonderful experience. We asked to be upgraded to a room that we were told was having an A/C issue. Even though we were okay with the issue, the staff spent well over an hour making sure that portable A/C units were fully set up and functional so that we could be comfortable. Later that evening there were some other guests that had a bit of a situation causing all of us other guests to be woken up. Judy came over, gave us a bottl... Read more
