I stayed at the Degas House last weekend with my family. For starters this is an amazingly beautiful property a few blocks north of the French Quarter on Esplanade. It is very easy to park and get around in this part of town. The Degas House is a beautiful mansion with 2 buildings and a gorgeous courtyard in-between. When you walk onto the property its like stepping back in time. Almost everything is period-specific and antique. When you go inside you're walking into a museum. Its really an overwhelming experience at first. The William Bell suite was amazing - beautiful furniture, a spacious balcony, a large kitchen, a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, and a guest bedroom. It was basically a 1 bedroom apartment. The beds were lush and extremely comfortable with top of the line linen. I really enjoyed the balcony, which looks out over the courtyard, and the jacuzzi tub - which is great after walking around the French Quarter all day. Another amazing part of the experience was the breakfast. Each morning we were served a delicious hot breakfast - first omelets then authentic french toast. The breakfast room is a beautiful 1800's dining room. We really enjoyed talking with the other guests at breakfast. Our kids loved it - they said it was almost as good as our trip to Disney World last year!! The Degas House is an amazing property that I would highly advise for any traveler.
