My husband and I, our daughter and husband, and 4 friends stayed at the Parisian for 3 nights in January 2010 to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We couldn't have chosen a more wonderful place to stay. The house has been beautifully restored, and the owners and Jesse, the manager, make you feel like it is your family home! We stayed in the #10 attic room with reclaimed brick walls, hardware floors and beautiful period furnishings, plus all the modern conveniences. We took 4 rooms altogether and each is unique and charming. It is located on the "fringe" of the Garden District", and the trolley car to the French Quarter is just a block away on St. Charles. Jesse and the owners are happy to accomodate in any way they can, and as they are originally from New Orleans, are a wealth of information. The continental breakfast is perfect, and they even offer chickory coffee! A stay at the Parisian will show you what true New Orleans southern hospitality and charm really is! I can't wait to go back!

I stumbled on a post about the Parysian Court yard Inn this morning and now want to spread the word..…Our whole family had a reunion at the Parisian...what a treat and affordable! Each room is completely unique and pictures on the web show just a glimpse of the actual grandeur. This place really is a hidden gem. Filled with history, originally built in the 1840's, The owner restored it with a mixture of ornate detail and cozy warmth. (He asked us to join him for bourbon in the garden one evening after we returned from sightseeing) The inn is a delightful combination of Royal esthetics, yet comfortable enough to feel as if it was my place... His wife encouraged me to take an afternoon nap on the 1840's feather chaise lounge in the double parlor if I wanted to...as if it were my family's mansion in the Garden District... Breakfast has many choices including fresh fruit, yogurt, cinnamon bread and croissants..... Rooms 1 and 4 are absolutely grand! and such a good value... 12 ft ceilings, king sized beds, dripping chandeliers and stunning antique furniture. Unbelievable. My parents stayed in room 1 with the stepping stools on either side to aide in getting into the over-sized bed. My husband and I stayed in Room 4 with the balcony. We went to sleep whispering to each other and giggling,”Good night Mr. King...Good night Mrs. Queen" my sister -in-law stayed in Room 9 which is more modern. It is split level with furniture from what could b e the 40’s or 50's... original chiffon bed covering and matching couch...just amazing as if…. Jackie -O or Maria Callas had it put together ...and Jesse the kindest inn keeper in the world, covered the couch and laid out an extra mattress for her children since the hotel was completely full. Some of the other rooms are smaller, but each has distinctive detail and hidden treasures

My husband and I and three friends spent a weekend here and just loved it. Jesse is a wonderful and informative innkeeper. The place has been redone to perfection. It's truly old and also truly beautiful. But is also offers all of the modern conveniences. We will be back!
