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... 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... 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.

Pam was our guide for a very personal tour. We were the only ones this particular afternoon. She shared so much information about Degas' visit to NOLA and the history of his family that lived there.

Very cool place, it is a historic property that has historical connections to the French artist Degas. You have to understand this when you are booking, as it is an old house and therefore obviously is not going to be like modern hotels so you should understand that. There is no A/C for example and the furniture is old and... More

Neighbourhood Profile
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.

“We avoided the garret rooms because of warnings about the AC. Might have been OK at another time of the year, but not in June.”

“The rooms on the 3rd floor were in bad shape The beds are all old. Cock roaches every where even in the freezer & the fridge!!! This place needs just more renovations & for the price that we paid , it was way way too much ! I would not recommend it at all. Being old & historical is right but mean while can be clean & worthy of stay!!”

“Wish there was, but as far as I could tell, there were no "good" rooms. We booked a pricey suite but left before spending a single night!”
  • Main light switch as you enter the room, missing paint and paint cracked
  • More bad paint.
  • This is from inside the bathroom looking out to the second bedroom. The trim was disgusting!
  • Bathroom sink pulling off the wall, mold. Gross.
