Degas House Reviews & Ratings
This is an exquisitely beautiful venue. I was there for a wedding and everything was perfect. The outdoor courtyard is stunning and the interior rooms are perfect for a reception. My favorite part of the evening was sitting with friends on a gorgeous New Orleans avenue under the Spanish moss, the air heavy with fragrant flowers. The catered food is delicious. Overall an excellent experience.
What an amazing stay. We stayed in the William Bell Suite. The room was beautiful. Not sure why all the negative reviews. Rooms were clean. Staff was wonderful. Yes, it's an older building but isn't that the point? If you want a newer building go stay in a place with no culture in some corporate hotel. Want a place with New Orleans charm? Stay here.
Very interesting and informative tour. Lovely breakfast. Excellent and friendly service.
You can feel french colonial history and life of Degas in New Orleans. It is better to make booking for guide tour in advance. She is very knowledgeable and intelligent for both history and arts. And the lovely cat will tell greeting to you!
My son and friend are staying there and l wanted to see it. Very quaint and quiet. They are enjoying it and can get to other venues without much hassle.
