Went to Commander's Palace and it was a nice experience. However, it was not anything special. Thus a four rating vs. a five. I would recommend going to the restaurant if you are in New Orleans and want to experience the charm and history of...More

Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

Hi there, well, as the other reviewer mentioned, it is a large space and they might be able to accommodate, but a call in advance would be recommended. Or perhaps your B&B might be willing to allow you to store your luggage... More

Commander's Palace welcomes everyone but we do have a dress code. It's a festive atmosphere! Shorts are never allowed. Inventive modern New Orleans cooking coexists with our Haute Creole. Sense the team's professional grace clothed in the warmth of the Brennan Family's brand of hospitality. From your first sip of a Sazerac to your last crumb of bread pudding soufflé, we hope you are pampered and delighted...and go ahead be a little bad...that's what living in New Orleans is all about.
