This trip was part of a Living Social package we purchased. Our stay at the Degas House was everything we hoped for. We live within 90 minutes of New Orleans and make frequent trips there. This trip allowed us to explore an area of New Orleans that we do not often have the chance to; the Esplanade Ridge neighborhood. The homes on Esplanade are beautiful and charming; some a little bit funky. We found a cluster of fun restaurants and hangouts less than a mile from Degas House.
We stayed in the "Josephine" room. It was very beautiful, with all the squeaks and creaks that one would expect in a house built in 1852. One negative note: the fitted sheet on our bed had a 4-5 inch diameter hole near the foot of the bed.
Breakfast was served in the dining room every morning. A large selection of items were available: fresh fruit, toast, bagels, coffee, juice, cereal, pastries, yogurt, omelets,etc.
We would recommend the Degas House to anyone who loves art, history, and would like to see more of New Orleans than the French Quarter.
