We just spent a great week at the Degas House. Paige and Rose were wonderful. Our family filled the entire hotel for a destination wedding and with the help of the great staff everything went well. We did have one problem. While we were out of our room (Estelle) for a few minutes one evening, we experienced the theft of... 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

It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we are pleased that you appreciated and enjoyed experiencing the history of Degas House. The artwork throughout the home will please any Edgar Degas fan and, as you said, since it is a historical house museum, it is exciting to actually spend the night here. Our location, while not being... More

Visited New Orleans for the Essence Festival. Paige was awesome at helping with our reservations as we went from a group of 11 to 6. The house is a little dated but that is to be expected -preservation of the Musson-Degas family home. I stayed in the Estelle Suite. It was nice and spacious. The Desiree room was charming. The...

Thank you for your kind review and for choosing Degas House for your stay in New Orleans. It was such a pleasure having your group stay with us recently.

We just spent a wonderful weekend at the Degas House. Get the waffles for breakfast!!!! We were surprised to find when we arrived that our room was upgraded. The Desiree Room is amazing. Huge room. Huge jacuzzi tub. Four poster bed. Beautiful antique furniture. A tour of the home was included in our package. The tour was informative & was... More

Thank you for submitting a review of your stay. Our waffles are amazing, aren’t they, and made from scratch. Desire Room is one of our most popular and has one of the nicest bathrooms in the home, particularly with the double Jacuzzi tub and separate shower.

My husband and I were visiting New Orleans and saw the brochure for the Degas House. Since we had been in Paris previously we decided to go. The pamphlet showed a map indicating it was only a few blocks from the French Quarter. So we began to walk there- it took longer than an hour. Once arriving we found that... More

We are extremely sorry that you did not read all the information that is on the Degas House brochure regarding the Edgar Degas House Creole Impressionist Tour, which is America’s most significant contribution to Impressionist history. The brochure states exactly how far it is to walk from the French Quarter to Degas House and gives other detailed choices for transportation... More

This was what I expected from the pictures and the reviews. It was like staying in New Orleans in the nineteenth century. The breakfast was great, Rose was wonderful. The office was a little tricky, but we did meet the innkeeper on our second day. We had no trouble getting in our room and we enjoyed our stay.

We stay at B&Bs all over the country. This was the worst EVER! Stayed two nights July 16 & 17. No one welcomed us. Key and form letter in mailbox. "Staff" women walked past us our first evening and never spoke to us. Room was as expected but musty. Tv didn't work night one. Called number on letter. No answer.... More

The folks were really friendly and the breakfast was wonderful. The free street parking was nice. The price, though, was rather high for the quality of the room ($150 for a gray, dingy third floor room with no windows) and the location...miles from the typical New Orleans attractions, though you could hop a bus and get down to the Marigny...

We appreciate that you thought our staff friendly and our breakfast wonderful. We are sorry that your stay did not go as you planned. The free “street” parking was at your choice as we have a secure parking lot available for our guests, however, some of our guests do choose to park on the street alongside Degas House.

So much more charming than an ordinary hotel room, Degas House offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in a piece of art history. David has to be commended on his foresight in painstakingly restoring this house and preserving the history it holds for current and future generations to appreciate and enjoy.

My stay at the Degas House was absolutely awful. We checked out after our first night after planing on staying 4 nights, and on top of that, we did not get a refund. So buyer beware!!! Our room was shabby, missing light bulbs, broken towel racks, dirty dresser draws. And the "creole breakfast" was unorganized, dirty utensils, which I had... More
