There are 2 ways to enter; through the main front door & private entrance directly into the guest suite. Guests can choose. Our rate is based on double occupancy. There is an additional charge of $30/person per night for more than 2 persons. The home is a beautiful 2-story stucco structure with a red Spanish tile roof. It is architecturally unique and interesting with its arched doorways and doors. The original structure is intact with very few changes to the original design. There are original wood floors and ceramic tiles which have been beautifully restored. The long center hallway serves as the perfect photo gallery for Eliot's photos. The raised front porch and the front courtyard-style patio is wonderful and a great place to just sit and do nothing. The corner lot offers a beautiful view of the peaceful surroundings of the neighborhood. Guests can enjoy City Park's Museum of Art, botanical gardens and new walking park. Laura and Eliot Kamenitz have owned and resided in their home since May 1995. They are the fifth and current owners of this 1924 raised cottage-style house. They both have professional careers; Laura is an Engineer and Eliot is a staff photographer for the New Orleans Advocate local newspaper. Ranger is the resident cat whose main job is to do nothing when he's not sleeping. There is plenty of on-street parking and there is off-street parking available if needed. We provide a continental breakfast consisting of croissants, muffins, orange juice, coffee/tea. Three cats reside at the Laurel. Ranger, Billy and Koshka (Siberian kitty rescued from Russia!). The Laurel is licensed with the City of New Orleans and has been in operation since 1996. Member PIANO, Professional Innkeepers of New Orleans. Come join us and enjoy the experience of being 'At Home in New Orleans' with Laura and Eliot. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 170675More
