We were lucky enough to stay at Elysian Fields Inn for eight nights, and came to regard it as 'home'. So close to Frenchmens Street and a short walk to the French Quarter, it was perfect for our music-centric visit. Hosts Leigh and Jim were there when necessary, providing lovely breakfasts and heaps of good advice and conversation, but unobtrusive... More

Beautiful restored historic home in a great neighborhood. It's within walking distance to the French Quarter. Wonderful people and a great breakfast. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.

We spent a week visiting New Orleans and were so glad to have picked Elysian Fields. The location can't be beat. We were able to walk everywhere and felt completely safe. We were about 3 blocks from the French Quarter and very close to Frenchmen's Street where there are great restaurants and music. We didn't have a car and really... More

Excellently situated -- very close to the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. Lovely building (especially the mahogany floors throughout), excellent breakfasts, extraordinary proprietors who are there to help and advise when that is needed, but are not intrusive at all. Highest recommendation.

Great bed-and-breakfast within walking distance of the French Quarter. The place was charming, clean, had friendly hosts, and served delicious breakfasts. We were there 3 nights and found it very convenient to the places we wanted to visit. The hosts - Jim and Leigh - were very welcoming and full of good recommendations. We went to one of the restaurants... More

My husband and I were in town for one night and really wanted to stay in the Marigny. The reviews on Trip Advisor convinced me this was the place for us, and it was. Leigh and Jim were very thoughtful hosts and provided everything we could need. The were delightful to talk to and their dogs are adorable! Our room... More

Not only is their home lovely and the room very comfortable, the breakfast was wonderful and the conversations even... More

This was the first time my husband and I stayed at a bed and breakfast. We absolutely loved the experience! We loved the charm and the location. It is just a short walk to wonderful Jazz locations on Frenchmen St. and the French Quarter. Jim and Leigh were very warm and welcoming! They helped with suggestions of things to see... More

We have been staying at the Elysian Fields Inn going back to before Katrina and before Jim and Leigh purchased the property. We have always enjoyed our stays but even more so after these two took over. Jim and Leigh have great knowledge of the neighborhood and of New Orleans history. Based on their recommendations we were introduced to the... More

We chose to stay here because we love the charm of bed and breakfasts and because of the location. We loved it! The neighborhood was an easy walk to the Quarter and through the Frenchmen Street area with fun food and music venues. Our hosts were gracious and welcoming! We definitely recommend this inn to anyone!
