Highly recommend staying here. Rooms are decorated nicely, colorful walls and ceilings that make your subconscious smile. Additionally, the property is quiet at night allowing for a great nights rest in a cozy bed. However, my opinion, breakfast was the best part. Hand picked from local businesses every morning, excellent coffee, juice, purified/filtered water from a Berkey and great conversation with the owners. Thanks for an amazing time in New Orleans, you guys are AMAZING humans.
This is the second time I’ve stayed at La Belle Esplanade. The vibrant colors as well as the proprietors make your visit to New Orleans one to remember. Spacious suites, comfortable beds, a delicious European style breakfast with food items from various local shops is nestled in a color and cozy dining room fostering conversation with other guests as well as the proprietors. If you like to get off the tourist path and take the road less traveled Mr King and Frau Melanie ensure you’re status most pleasing and full of wonderful local advise. You can see New Orleans as a tourist or a local as La Belle Esplanade is a short walk from the French Quarter. Do yourself a favor and stay at La Belle Esplanade. I will be back!
Absolutely excellent place to be. It was like a home away from home. Close to most everything and such awesome history. Highly recommend, and cant wait to go back and stay again. Food was unbelievable. You can walk to everything from here or catch an Uber to make it quick. Away from the party crowd of the qtr but still within a walk to fun.
Mathew and Melanie are so personable and knowledgeable. We almost had to cancel our trip(due to work schedule) and Mathew and Melanie talked us into coming anyway but we came a day later. I am glad we went to New Orleans. We got to experience LA Belle Esplanade, a local’s breakfast, explore the city, and most of all we met Mathew and Melanie. I will stay at La Belle Esplanade again soon!
For a bed and breakfast with as much flavor as New Orleans itself, spend time at the wonderful La Belle Esplanade. Book a night longer than you think you want to stay because the owners (Matthew and Melanie) offer a local’s perspective of the best sights and sounds of the city while recognizing some of the most popular travel-drawing interests. This is a relaxed atmosphere with interesting decor, food, and hosts. We can’t wait to return!
