My wife arranged accommodation here, in no small part because she really loved the work of Degas, and I rather enjoy it myself. This was a tricky place to review for several reasons, not the least of which is that the house is, in many lovely respects, a period piece. Let me start by cautioning anyone expecting hi-spec, top-end arrangements... More

We are just getting done staying at the inn today and it has been a wonderful experience. We asked to be upgraded to a room that we were told was having an A/C issue. Even though we were okay with the issue, the staff spent well over an hour making sure that portable A/C units were fully set up and... More

Pam was our guide for a very personal tour. We were the only ones this particular afternoon. She shared so much information about Degas' visit to NOLA and the history of his family that lived there. I was particularly fascinated by the research done to find that the house, over the years, had been divided into two buildings. We are... More

Very cool place, it is a historic property that has historical connections to the French artist Degas. You have to understand this when you are booking, as it is an old house and therefore obviously is not going to be like modern hotels so you should understand that. There is no A/C for example and the furniture is old and... More

Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay at Degas House during Mardi Gras. It is obvious that you appreciate the home and its connection to Edgar Degas. However, we are not sure why you stated that there is no air-conditioning. In South Louisiana, it would be impossible for there to be no air-conditioning in any type of... More

Great room. Great Service. Great breakfast. My travel companion and I had a great experience with the management of the Degas House. After dealing with terrible and rude management with the Rathborne Bed and Breakfast the Degas House welcomed up with open arms. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We were there for a wedding. From the event viewpoint, it was fabulous. The staff & especially wedding coordinator Flora were great. They were helpful, attentive, and accommodating. They staged a beautiful wedding. From the lodging standpoint, it left a lot to be desired. Though the building is historic and charming, it is sorely in need of repairs and maintenance.... More

Neighborhood Profile
Treme
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
