Loved Chez Palmiers, David and Schuyler are fantastic hosts. We stayed in the Loft Room, which was very quiet and spacious. The continental breakfast they had was outstanding-- a true European-style continental offering, not the junk you get in American hotels. Absolutely loved the home and the decorating style of the hosts. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the room, but the only 2 things I would mention that weren't exceptional were the very small shower (it's bit of a squeeze) and the fact that the room was quite dusty in the not-so-obvious places. Doesn't really bother me but I know some folks are turned off by that and the room could have used a thorough cleaning. The neighborhood felt completely safe to me, but for those not accustomed to city neighborhoods, you may be inclined to take a cab at night. Would stay here again in a heartbeat, you can't beat the value!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the historic Faubourg Marigny just two blocks from the French Quarter and four blocks from Frenchman Street (popular with the neighborhood's locals), at Chex Palmiers you'll be within easy walking distance of many of the sites, restaurants, bars and clubs, and the characters and music that have made New Orleans famous. Public transportation is not far way, making it easy to explore other parts of the city as well. ... more less
