Fabulous breakfast and great location
Posted Oct 15, 2016 on Hotels
We had a wonderful experience at the Elysian Fields Inn. The owners Michelle and Bob were gracious, super friendly and forthcoming with info about things to do in the area. The breakfast was exceptional and gourmet. One day was delicious pancakes and sausage, the next was fabulous shrimp and grits, with berry fruit bowls each day. They are accomodating of dietary restrictions. The room was very clean, elegantly decorated and updated, and the bed was very comfortable with high end bedding. The building was a nice historic home that was spotlessly kept and spacious. It was just a few blocks from famous Frenchmen Street with the great Jazz clubs, and the French Quarter. Parking was on the street but we always found a spot within a block (a private spot is available but not for regular access to your car). The neighborhood felt relatively safe, but like any big city you'd probably want to be a little careful if you were walking around late at night in a non-touristy area. Being in a busy area there was a bit of traffic noise in our room which faced the street, but it was not bad. Overall the place was pretty quiet. There was a nice back deck overlooking the neighborhood. We loved our stay and would definitely return! Great value for being so close to the French Quarter.
