It was my first trip back to NOLA in many years, to visit my niece at Tulane & enjoy a city I love. I chose Chez Nous because of the neighborhood, easy proximity to all the great music on Frenchman St. & the Quarter (while being away from the honky-tonk) & the positive reviews- just had a gut feeling about it. As it turned out, better than I'd even hoped for. I stayed in the 1 bedroom space. When I arrived late at night after a long day of travel, how sweet it was enter a beautiful room, w/ the gas stove in the brick fireplace lit, & WWOZ playing on the excellent small music system. First reaction- Absolutely charming & 100% N'Awlins; even better than the website pics. Gently worn lovely period furniture, art, old photos, wood floors, 12 ft. ceiling, enormous windows, chandelier.
Thoughtfully appointed w/ many touches like tons of useful & interesting reading material, take-out menus, a TV w/ basic cable in one of the wardrobes, a reading lamp, games, a few CDs, plenty of thick towels. Blissfully comfy memory foam bed, nice bathroom w/ deep tub, coffeemaker & small fridge stocked w/ a few breakfast items. Met Gary briefly, & he made sure I had a couple of much-appreciated things I asked for when needed. I was blissfully comfy. And yes- I LOVE the Marigny 'hood! Almost hesitant to write such a glowing review, because Chez Nous seems to be booked often, but can't wait to return!
