Our first stay in New Orleans that was not in a hotel, but I would highly recommend it. Schuyler and David were perfect hosts for us, and their property was typical New Orleans - charm, eclectic and cosy!
The trip was initially with my girlfriend and my parents, although my gf's family arrived the next day and we were able to essentially take over the place entirely.
I can truly say that this was a memorable trip for my folks (over from the UK) and staying here added to it immensely. David and Schuyler were perfectly willing to help us in every way, advising us on restaurants (not one bad one!) and trips - helping us plan our stay without being "under our feet".
A number of somewhat negative reviews we read mentioned the fact that it's homely and not like a "sterile" B&B. This to us, was actually what attracted us to it, and we were not unhappy in our choice. If you want sterile - go to a hotel. If you want to be somewhere where you feel like you are a valued guest in someones home, choose Chez Palmiers.
We'll be back for sure!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the historic Faubourg Marigny just two blocks from the French Quarter and four blocks from Frenchman Street (popular with the neighborhood's locals), at Chex Palmiers you'll be within easy walking distance of many of the sites, restaurants, bars and clubs, and the characters and music that have made New Orleans famous. Public transportation is not far way, making it easy to explore other parts of the city as well. ... more less
