We reserved 3 of the lovely rooms at the Degas House, 2 of which had 2 bedrooms, (5 bedrooms total). Breakfast was lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. We were a total of 9 adults in our family and the total room costs were under $900 per day. Beds were very comfortable.

It is like staying in a museum home complete with period furniture. The staff was friendly and the Manager attentive to detail.

We found Degas House a perfect place for us to stay in New Orleans. There is easy access to the French Quarter and Esplanade Avenue is very beautiful. The breakfasts were very good and we were taken care of beautifully by the staff, particularly by the soft spoken and kind Caroline. Our room was wonderfully refreshed everyday. There is road construction going on on Esplanade but it didn't bother us. We also had dinner one night at the Degas House Restaurant and found it very pleasant.

Beautiful house with some interesting history. The tour is worth it though keep it for a rainy day activity as there is so much to do and see in NOLA. the location is great - off the beaten track and so a very quiet, peaceful respite from the madness downtown, and yet just a 15 minute walk to the action. Rent bikes and you can truly get around the whole city - French Quarter, City Park, Garden District, ...Wifi was a bit temperamental during our stay but the staff were lovely about it. Bed was a bit lumpy but it was so quiet we slept like babies.

We stayed in the Carrie Suite which is on the third floor of the home. It was hot in the hallways of the 3rd floor even though it was in the mid-forties outside. I imagine it would be stifling in the summer. However, once we got in the room, plenty of air conditioning with an individual unit for the room. Nicely furnished, but absolutely no windows on the 3rd floor so there was no outside light coming into the room. Free wi-fi and breakfast were included with the room, and the breakfast was outstanding. I would recommend this place to a friend, but would warn them about the lack of windows and heat in the hallways on the third floor

My wife and I stayed at the Degas House while in town for the Super Bowl. This is the best bed and breakfast we have stayed and have recommended it to all who will listen. The owner David has a true love for the history of the house and surrounding area--this is evident in the care he and his staff take of guests. The staff catered to every guest and made us feel welcome. I can not speak highly enough about the Degas House. Troy

The air was moist and warm and our weary bones drove up to The Degas House after a six hour layover in Houston. David and Brandy very graciously arrived to welcome us despite the lateness of the hour. They shared the history of David's meticulous renovation, their experiences through hurricanes Isaac and Katrina and suggested adventures for our stay in New Orleans. We stepped through the guillotine window to another era viewed from the porch outside Estelle Musson's bedroom. After a delicious breakfast and the clink of mimosa glasses, we took suggestions from our hosts. An articulate and fascinating tour led by Degas' great grand niece gave life and breath to the house and paintings of Musson family members which surrounded us. Then off to a raucous Friday afternoon at Galatoire's full of well heeled souls out to toast the weekend with bottles of bubbly and a long fabulous lunch. Cheers to Degas house and many thanks!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are truly glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you were able to experience the tour of the house while you were visiting - integrating the history with providing a comfortable place to stay is central to what we are trying to achieve. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
