The Estelle suite is a romantic room to share with your partner! My Husband and I stayed after our wedding, which was in the courtyard. We indulged in the breakfast, and danced in the courtyard. The staff is stellar! We loved socializing and thanking them for making our wedding dreams come true!

Arrived to find they did not have the promised parking, they were renting it for jazz fest. Had to park on the street. Car got covered in bird crap (see pics). Ac was not turned on for our arrival. The room was about 110 degrees. It took about 6 hours of running the AC to make it barely comfortable. Not fun after bringing luggage to the third floor attic. Internet was barely useable. 3-4 minutes to load a page, unable to use it for bookings or directions. The room was in poor shape. One big floorboard was warped and loose causing tripping and stubbed toes. The were two beds and 5 pieces of 70s era thrift shop furniture in the room. Every piece was broken in some way. The only chair in the room had its lower supports broken making it dangerous. The one decorative item, a plastic globe was also broken! Outlets were exposed, ragged holes were cut in the circling for fire extinguishers. I’m not an expert so I’ll let you judge from the picture, but I’m pretty sure it was a roach. I gave one star because the staff was very friendly and one for the location. But at the prices they charge this should have been a much better experience.

I recently had the most wonderful experience at the Degas House, I have to share!! I was there for wedding event and the pleasure of spending the day at this fabulous historic oasis. From the moment we pulled up, I couldn’t wait to go inside. The surroundings are so lush, green, and natural and the outside of the Degas house is so grand and welcoming…. And the porches!!! You feel like you are at home when you arrive. We were greeted by the most kind and hospitable staff. Even the owner, David, who was so incredibly kind, chatted with us and made us feel extra special! We had the most amazing lunch at a huge kings table in the front parlour rooms. I truly felt like a princess!!! The 5 course lunch was absolutely amazing. Sharon, who cooked and prepared our lunch came out to meet us and served us throughout the dining experience. Another amazing and personal touch! The staff then served us the best Bloody Mary’s! With cocktails in hand, we visited the southern style courtyard and had the opportunity to see the incredible Bridal suite ( the bridal suite has a the most amazing huge balcony overlooking Esplanade) and toured the personal Art Studio of Degas located in the their second building. I loved the fact that there was an art component to this whole experience. To top it off we were then served an afternoon snack … the most delicious grilled cheese sandwich and pickles :).... how southern and fun! The Degas House had a special surprise for us around every corner! I have been to SO many wedding events, of all sorts, and my experience at the Degas House is at the very top! Memories made that I will never forget. I hope I get invited to another event at the Degas house soon :) If you are a bride and are looking for something authentic, full of southern charm and beauty … you HAVE to check out the Degas House. The hospitality is the very best.... you will love it so much you will never want to leave!

the pierre room has no window. the wall between that and the room nextdoor is so thin you can hear every word. wifi and cable both not working. holes in the walls and ceiling that had been stuffed with paper towels. floor boards popping up. bed sagging into. a U shape. it was the most depressing looking room i have ever seen and they refuse a refund even though we only stayed one of three nights.

Overall great. Staff was very good. Only downside was heat didn't work at all though they did provide a space heater. I would expect basic comforts to work when paying this kind of rate. This was the only negative as everything else about our stay was great there

If you want to experience Antebellum this is your place! The first thing that struck us was the SUPERIOR customer service, attentive, helpful, genuine, and informative. Although the staff wasn't around 24/7, we had everything we needed. It was like our own home with the key to the front door and everything. It's a beautiful house that is high on charm. A creaky floorboard here, a door in need of a gentle nudge there, and tiny things like that kept us lost in time. If walking flights of stairs and enjoying history are your thing, THIS IS YOUR PLACE. We had no problem walking downtown (a little over a mile) but also had no problem hopping on the bus right out front of the house.

I've lived in New Orleans on and off for several years and so, know all about Degas House. I've always wanted to come here, so I decided last year to have my birthday there. I noticed that Degas rents an adjoining properly in Bayou St John - a large house with a pool and many bedrooms, so I thought this would be perfect. I was late in the day renting, and I discovered, after chatting with Kathy the manager, that I was in luck - it was available. I paid - but things started to get awkward when I started to realize that I'd given the impression I was going to have a wild party at the place. In reality, we were only four people, and none of us hard partiers. Kathy refused to give me the address until about an hour before my rental began. Despite an increasingly weird atmosphere, I had an incredible birthday at the place. That said, the house itself was a virtual ruin - and it would be hard to see how a huge party with hundreds of people could actually cause the place more damage. Anyone who has any standards at all would have recoiled at the condition the place was in. The house was filthy, the jacuzzi was broken, and according to the neighbors, the pool had been shocked with chlorine the day before to make it swimmable. In fact, the lovely next door neighbors felt so sorry for us and even offered us their place. Despite all, we had a great time - but hardly the damaging party that I think was feared. In a strange epilogue, my girlfriend left something at the place, and we were told we "could not return" to get it. Needless to say, the workmen who turned up the next day allowed us in, and were very nice. A bizarre experience, truly.

I met up with my sister who stayed here, so I didn't get the full experience or take the tour. But breakfast was amazing and it was a very beautiful house. You can't take pictures while you're inside, but very cool to experience and walk through. The outside is gorgeous too and there is alot of beautiful plants.
