My two friends and I stayed at Chez Palmiers early Friday - Monday afternoon the first week of December, 2011. We stayed in the Loft Suite upstairs and the accommodations were clean, comfortable, private and spacious enough. Athough other guests were residing on the property at the time, we only saw one another in passing and I did enjoy a true sense of privacy. The location was only a couple of blocks from Esplanade; however, because we frequented the Quarters/Canal area, we paid several cab fares when returning at night and also caught the city bus, which sometimes meant a fairly lengthy wait during the day time. Of course, we did our share of walking as well, which was of great benefit (I think I lost a few pounds!) but I didn't trust walking at night so hence the various cab rides. Overall, the experience was a very good one. Both David and Schulyer were very nice, amenable and made us feel welcomed upon arrival. Also, the complimentary breakfast offerings was a nice touch and got our day off to a nice start!

Public transportation is not far way, making it easy to explore other parts of the city as well. ... more less
