New Orleans is a city that offers a bit of everything and we have experienced high end hotels and small B&Bs. This trip was with our adult children and Chez Palmiers was perfect for us. Hosts, Schuyler and David have a restored cajun cottage appointed with an eclectic mix of memorabilia that allows you to get to know them from their travels and interests. They are gracious and warm and you at once feel like you are visiting friends in their home. Breakfast was offered in the dining room with a lovely assortment of fresh fruit, juices, yogurt, cheese, breads, coffee, and daily paper. Both breakfast and cocktails were enjoyed sitting on the deck by the pool sharing conversation and gaining valuable local information. The three guest rooms were ideal for our family. The city has to be experienced on foot and the house is located between the French Quarter and the Faubourg Marginy, an area often overlooked and not to be missed. Walk and/or use the Taxis as there is not good parking and traffic is always congested. To sum it up, our 26 year old son said, "I'm sad to leave. I love this place." Now is the time to visit New Orleans. The citizens have worked hard to put the city back in order and have done it with success and pride.
