Wonderful New Orleans Retreat! A review of Elysian Fields Inn
The Elysian Fields Inn is a wonderful New Orleans retreat. My husband and I spent 4 nights there, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The covered off street parking was a big selling point for us. We parked our van when we arrived, and just walked for the rest of the trip!
The rooms were comfortable, well furnished, and most importantly.....spotlessly clean! We enjoyed the common area and full kitchen available to guests as well as the high speed internet connection and vast selection of books, magazines and video tapes. The breakfasts were yummy, and we enjoyed being able to choose from three menu items each day instead of being "told" what we were to eat for breakfast. The inn was just a short 10 minute walk from the French Quarter, and we felt very safe staying there, even though it was near downtown.
Greg and Sal were very helpful in finding great restaurants, and were very knowledgeable about the city in general. We even got a tour of the inn and were able to see other rooms and suites. The time and effort that has been put into making Elysian Fields a gorgeous home is overwhelming. If we are ever in New Orleans again, we will DEFINITELY stay at Elysian Fields again.
One unique quality of the inn is that it is totally handicapped accessible. The elevator and handicapped accessible suite makes it very friendly to those who aren't able to go up and down steps easily. I plan to bring my grandmother back with me someday!
