Don?t stay there if the...
Liked: We had a suite with 2 bedrooms so my adult daughter had privacy. Breakfast was great and Sharon was terrific. She seemed to be the only one who helped us with anything. It Is in a good location right outside the French Quarter and there was a bus outside that connected with the trolley system.
Disliked: We always seemed to have to ask for what we needed, some of which is standard and should have been there before we arrived. There was only one roll of toilet paper in the bathroom and we had to ask for more. We had a kitchen with minimal plates and utensils. There were 3 of us and we had one drinking glass. We were there right before Hurricane Barry. On the Wednesday, when it was raining, the bathroom ceiling started to leak. Sharon offered us another room, but it didn?t meet our needs. Dave, the property owner was there. He knew we decided to leave a day early and I asked about a refund. He said speak to Cathy. Cathy wasn?t there yet because New Orleans streets were flooded. I have called 3 times. The first time was Wednesday afternoon after we left. Spoke to Cathy who finally showed up to work. She said she would speak to Dave and call me back. No call back. I called back after the Weekend of the storm. Spoke to Cathy again. I inquired about everyone?s safety and then again asked about a refund. She said she would Text Dave and call me back. Again, no call back. I Called back again 2 days later. Left a message for Dave. I have yet to get an answer. Honestly, they don?t seem to care that we were put out at all. Management is terrible. Maybe they need the money.

Liked: Beautiful old houses - 2 of them - check in was very easy. Liked the historical connection to Edgar Degas. The breakfast was very good with very nice orange juice.
Disliked: We had a third floor room - very far to lug suitcases with no elevator. The room had no windows and the temperature of the room was very hot right under the roof - essentially the attic of the house. The air conditioning unit wasn?t working as it should and was very noisy. The staff provided us with a fan (thank you). The WiFi signal of the house didn?t reach the third floor - so the only access for WiFi for third floor guests was the first floor lounge - not great for planning the next day?s activities while in bed before sleep. And the price point on this room was expensive in the range of bed & breakfast properties. 30 minute walk to the French Quarter.

An incredible New Orleans experience!
Liked: Located in a perfect place to visit many of the city's attractions...if you want an historic, comfortable, quiet stay the Degas House is for you. The breakfast was incredible...I am already missing the one of a kind experience.

Great B&B, great location, and...
Liked: Staying at a historical home was amazing, and sitting on the balcony looking over Esplanade Ave. was wonderful. And the breakfast was delicious and plentiful with some of the best grits around.
Disliked: Some black out curtains would have been nice for the room we were in. The city street lights were very bright at night.

Liked: Ms. Sharon was so nice and helpful. She made us feel very welcome and well taken care of. The location was perfect. It was a lovely neighborhood, with some nice restaurants within walking distance. The creole breakfast was delicious every day. Ms. Nika and Ms. Denise were so sweet. The Mathilde Suite was perfect! It felt like home away from home and we slept so good! We will definitely be staying here again!
Disliked: There was nothing to not like here.
