#1 Wedding, Rehearsal Dinner & 9 rooms

Awesome venue to bring family, bridesmaids, groomsmen to sleep, have rehearsal dinner and wedding in one awesome historical home in New Orleans. The Edgar Degas the painter actually painted 18 of the first impressionist movement in his family home. Staff is awesome, sparklers instead of rice at end, just unique ideas. Bridesmaids pictures in pajamas, whose does that!!!

Secret Escape-Booked all 9 Rooms!!

Never thought about booking one place for my college friends to reunite. What an awesome idea for a Secret Escape in New Orleans, while stepping into the life of Edgar Degas and exploring the history of the 18 paintings done while visiting his family in 1872/1873. Who knew that the price of a room would include a gourmet creole breakfast each morning for all of us, a welcome drink for our group, a small refigirator in each room with some bottle water and sodas, not to mention the Port/Sherry in each room. On top of that we were treated to a wonderful guide tour by Janie, a great grand niece of the Degas Family. Beautiful Oak Trees line the street in a cantopy and the staff turn us on to Cafe Degas with 15% off coupon, City Park for a little Golf (via Putt Putt for kids or for the guys Golf under century old Oak Trees) just blocks away in one direction and the French Quarter about 11 blocks in the other direction. Bus Stop right in front of Degas House. Thank you goes to an awesome staff, from housekeeper, to innkeeper to breakfast staff. We will return and recommend this Century Old Inn for its historical, yet family friendly atomspehere.

Love on Esplanade Avenue

We spent the first days of our marriage in New Orleans, in the Estelle Suite, at the Degas House. We chose the Estelle Suite for its gallery overlooking Esplanade Avenue. We've since heard it described as a magical place, and it certainly was so for us. Time seems to move slowly there; even the sun rises more languorously, and the day unwinds more lazily. The suite is full of charm; wide, polished-wood floors; a glittering chandelier; a day-bed by one of the floor-to-ceiling windows; a crystal decanter of tawny port on the desk; a generous, comfortable bed; a magnificent period armoire; and so much more. As beautiful as it was indoors, we spent most of our time at the Degas House on the balcony, breathing in the magnolia-scented air of the real New Orleans, chatting with passers-by, or not, as the mood struck us. We watched the herons nesting in the old oaks overhanging the streets. We drank wine. We played backgammon. We even shared a cigar. It is also a great location in New Orleans. The neighborhood held hidden treasures that we delighted in searching out, with guidance from the staff. They were very knowledgeable about New Orleans, and about the history of the house. David, Lala, Mari, Flora, James, Bettie, and Eva made our visit exceptional. Thank you very much.

Beautiful setting, welcoming staff.

Degas House and its rich history are so fascinating. Take the tour if you can! The breakfast is incredible and the kitchen staff is warm, friendly and welcoming. Make friends with Miss Sharon! This is a perfect place to spend time in New Orleans outside of the French Quarter!
