My wife and I pre-paid and booked one of the suites for a week, beginning on Easter Sunday. We arrived in town earlier than expected so went straight to the B&B. We were informed (by a service worker) that the room wasn't ready yet, and to come back after 2:30. So we went into town and came back later. When... More

We apologize that you could not get into your room early on Easter Sunday. Check-in time is 3:00 pm but you must have arrived early. Also, your check-in followed a very busy holiday weekend. Perhaps you are not familiar with staying in a B&B. Ours, like the majority of B&Bs, only have a few rooms and do not provide concierge... More

Don't be fooled when you book a room at the Degas house. To begin, when arrived at the Degas house and entered our room they didn't even bother to turn on the air conditioner in advance so it wouldn't be an oven when we arrived which they new of our arrival time in advance. There are no windows on the... More

We apologize that the air conditioner was inadvertently not turned on prior to your arrival. It was cool in the morning when your room was checked. Unfortunately, we are sorry that you did not read the literature on our rooms which explains that the third floor is a garret (attic) which has sloping ceilings and there are no windows. In... More

If you're an art and history buff, then you'll probably enjoy staying at the Degas House B&B. The house was occupied by Edgar Degas in 1872-1873 and has been recently restored (within last ten years or so). It has wide-plank wooden floors, paint to match the period, and copies of Degas' works throughout the house. The house is furnished with... More

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Degas House. We are sorry that you had a problem with the furniture in your room. In an effort to keep with the historical nature of the home, we provide antique furniture throughout. The pieces may not work as well as modern furniture which we feel would lessen the historical experience. Thank you... More

Amazing place to stay for a quick 2 night visit for myself and my 20 year old daughter. Away from the French Quarter in a quiet beautiful neighborhood but close enough to be in the French Quarter in 10 min (by bus) or even quicker by cab. The breakfasts were AWESOME!!!. My daughter, who can't eat gluten, brought gluten free... More

Michelle, it was a pleasure to have you and your daughter stay with us. As you mentioned, Degas House is located in a beautiful area of New Orleans, along scenic Esplanade Avenue. The Bananas Foster French Toast you spoke about is by far one of the most requested items on our menu. We are glad we could accommodate your gluten-free... More

"My sister and I stayed at the Degas House for a family vacation. Where do I begin? We initially had a small discrepancy in our booking. However, the zealous effort that Marie put forth to accommodate us went well beyond the scope of what we expected to heighten our comfort level. The sense of professionalism, coupled with her well trained... More

We did not stay out the hotel, but decided to visit and go on the house tour as my wife was interested in Degas and his work. Overall the tour was a bit expensive for what it covers. There's a 20 minute video to start, which basically covers most things, and then the tour guide tells you about the same... More

We apologize that you were not happy with your tour experience. Normally, the tours are given by one of the great grand-nieces of Edgar Degas. These ladies have been with us for many years (the senior tour guide for 12 years). Some of what is stated in the tour comes from their own experience as this was their family home.... More

Were it not that Degas had stayed here, I'm not sure how I would rated this hotel. But given that he's one of my favorite artists, this was a treat. Yes, it felt as if we were staying in a room at a museum, but that was half the fun. Haven't we all wished we could jump over a red... More
