We have stayed at Elysian Fields several times since Katrina. Each time it just gets better. The inn is nicely furnished, the atmosphere inviting, and the inn keepers, Leigh and Jim, extermely nice.
The location, while next to a neighborhood that was devestated by Katrina is excellent (that neighborhood is being rebuilt but facelifts take time). It is is quiet and a short walk to Frenchman's St where you can listen to all sorts of great music and find wonderful resturants. And a we would walk all over the French Quarter and too the aquarium from there too.
Each morning we were greeted by the innkeepers and treated to a home cooked meal. This isn't something like a hotel but more like home. My husband especially liked the pastries and I'll admit the cinnamon buns were great.
Staying at Elysian Fields Inn wasn't like staying at hotel but more like visiting friends. We always feel welcome and know that any question we have will be answered. There may be a few rough spots but it takes time to clean up and recover from something like Katrina. No matter what, this is the only place we want to stay when we go to New Orleans.
