A Quarter Esplanade
Ranked #106 of 141 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 28, 2004

The owners now have a restaurant nearby. It's about 3 blocks away - a very pleasant walk, even in July. (They will deliver if someone is available. It is located directly across the street from the French Market.) The huevos rancheros were delicious and our #1 favorite. They also have omlettes, crepes, pancakes, yogurt/fruit/granola combo and terrific latte. Breakfast (anytime) is included with the room rate! We had a family reunion there and used 4 of their rooms - they all were well above average if you take into consideration everything in N'awlins is old. The pool could fit all 14 of us easily with seating all around the inside. This B&B was perfect for our needs, we would definitely return.

Ok ...here it is very straight. If your looking for a true B&B type of place ...with charm, character and unique style - than you will LOVE it here. The rooms are very large - almost all are apartment style. Many rooms are on a second floor and the stairs are quite a hike - check before you book if that's a problem for you. The pool in the rear courtyard is nice to take a quick dip and the location is good. Its clean but NOT spotless. Its nice but also old and dated. Yes it has some flaws ...and maybe if your looking for SUPER clean you will not be happy, but for the price it's MUCH better than you could hope for somewhere else. Six of us stayed for almost a week in July 2004. Each day we had breakfast at a small restaurant that is owned by the same owner - although its a few blocks away - ALL this was included. We ate a GREAT full breakfast at no additional charge. The parking was FREE - this is unheard of in the area - but about 3-4 blocks away - well worth the $15-25.00 savings that most places add to your bill. The phone calls - local are FREE also. We parked some of the time on the street right in front if it was later in the day (we were there during off season) although lots of things we were able to walk to where ever we wanted to go. The location is on the boarder of the French District - in a residential somewhat quiet area - great if you have kids. We walked to Bourbon Street two nights (DO NOT TAKE KIDS THERE AT NIGHT - EVER - Just WAY TO MUCH SEX STUFF GOING ON), we did take our kids there during the day to walk some and that was OK. Also ....the owners/employees were friendly and helpful. We were VERY happy with our stay and would go back next time we visit.

We stayed at the QE last year during MG'04, and had such a wonderful time that we've reserved the same space for MG'05!! We are veteran MG'ers and have stayed at 8 different locations in the Quarter over the last 13 years. The QE is definitley on the top end of our list. The 2 bedroom studio was a perfect fit for us. And the staff was friendly and efficient, and the rooms were clean and for the most part very well maintained. We try to chose hotels that feel like your staying in New Orleans, not some cookie cutter room. This was everything we had hoped for, and are looking forward to our next visit.!!

We were a little concerned when we walked into the office and met the clerk at the front desk.. Our welcome left a lot to be desired. Fortunately, we never saw "Norman" again and the rest of the folks we encountered there were very friendly (one, even apologizing for Bates' bad behavior).
The room was accurately represented on the website....your basic no-frills room which served the purpose...it was spacious enough for the three of us, however, it could use some upgrades-repairs: the bathroom door didn't close, the door-less cabinet in the kitchen, the fridge that opened the wrong way....BUT, the location was IDEAL! I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

Spent a wonderful week there. The website is very accurate with pictures and details. Stayed in a studio type unit on the first floor. Very clean and spacious for 2 people. The courtyard is great for early morning coffee or just fresh air at night. The pool is small but nice to look at (I don't swim). Both the staff and the owner were extremely nice and helpful.

I am a smoker and all of the units are non smoking units - if you smoke you'll have to go outside. It would be nice if the owner could designate 1 or 2 rooms for smokers.

My boyfriend and I spent one night at A Quarter Esplanade in September '03, and were very pleased with our experience. We took a 4 night trip, but only booked 2 nights in a hotel. We wanted to choose where we would stay for our last two nights once we were there. I had narrowed our selections down to a handful of B&B's based on information on their websites. I'm happy to say that A Quarter Esplanade very correctly represents itself online. It is a very cute, cozy place with bright, clean rooms and a neat little courtyard with a small, but adorable pool to relaxe in. We stayed in one of the studios, and though the bed/main room was small, the bathroom and kitchen were a nice size. The staff was incredibly accomodating (especially since we did not have a reservation) and friendly. We would have stayed there for our last two nights, but they only had availability for one night (our last night).
We booked it anyway, and settled for a dingy, roach-infested B&B for the other night (never again - be wary of dim lighting and dark painted walls in the room!). I would definitely stay here again!

I have stayed at A Quarter Esplandae twice. The saying that you get what you pay for holds true. The owners are very nice. My husband and I have stayed in the bungalow and upstairs in a single room where out wonderful oversized bed took up most of it. The rooms are clean! There are single serving juices and milks in the fridge. I love the fact that A Quarter Esplande has a fridge, not all holelsand and B&B's offer this. The bungalow room has a wonderful spa tub. We walked everywhere from this location. The pastries are tasty. The maid drops them off in the room the night before since most people sleep in. MY husband and myself always ate them when we got in for a snack and then walked to Corsant D'Jore. if you want comfort and to feel 100% at ease this is the place for you. If you are seeking the foofy bells and whistles than you might want to keep shopping.
