Poor managment lack of comunication, horrible check in

We got there and the room was not available, took 2 hs to have someone coming to help us, while waiting outside in the dark with a baby. The next day our room was still not available and there was none in reception to give us an explanation or help us. Absolutely poor management and lack of communication. They did not deliver what the promised and the room without windows are horrible. the toilet was in a poor state with the floor broken with loosen tiles. We have still not hear from them after the complain we submit...really poor communication and service

Fantastic Stay at Degas House

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.

B&B only review. Lovely staff, just needs some TLC

We were staying at the Degas house for 2 nights at the end of our honeymoon road trip. Upon arrival we were given the keys to our room which was located on the 3rd floor. The room itself was small but ok for our needs. The issues we had were that the AC unit sounded like a plane taking off, it was extremely loud. We also noticed that some repairs were needed (broken tap) and the towels were stained. We spent the night in the room but due to the AC unit didn't get a lot of sleep (there are no windows in this room). We raised this with a lovely woman at reception (can't remember her name but very understanding) who immediately rectified the issues by moving us to another room and giving us a complimentary gift for our inconvenience. This room was absolutely fine for our needs and we had a pleasant overall stay. The breakfast was really, really good and probably the best we had on our road trip.
