Much more than expected! A review of Elysian Fields Inn
The Elysian Fields Inn well surpassed any expections we had about our first Bed and Breakfast stay. Why anyone would choose a hotel while staying in New Orleans is now beyond me.
We chose this particular B&B after doing quite a bit of research on the internet. We liked their website and the photos they had and also that they offered free off-street parking. Could have booked on-line from their site (can't do that on most) but wanted to call and actually speak with someone instead. As soon as I hung up the phone, I was certain that we had made the right decision. Very professional, full of information but above all, they were nice! Seems hard to find that quality lately.
We arrived mid-afternoon and we were greeted by both of the innkeepers.
After we were checked-in and shown our room, we were just so impressed and thrilled with our choice. One of the best things about staying here is the location. It's just a great neighborhood and we ended up spending most of our nights just three blocks away on Frenchmen Street.
Everything was very walkable from the Inn. We could be anywhere we wanted within 15-20 minutes and it is so nice being out of the French Quarter when it's time to sleep.
There are just so many reasons to be happy with our decision to stay here and we won't even consider staying anywhere else when we return.
All you have to do is give Greg or Sal a call on the phone and you will know that everything I have said is true. Stay here, you won't be sorry you did.
