While the antique beds, just like all the other furnishings, are part of La Belle Esplanade bed and breakfast's je n'est c'est quoi, appeal, pictures don't do them justice. I can blame my photography skills, or I can blame my phone. The truth is, pictures can never prepare the viewer for experiencing something enchanting in the round and in the flesh.
Our guests from Toronto said, "We didn't realize the rooms were so spacious. We figured that if you didn't show the ceilings, they must be low." One of them is a real estate agent. Frau Schmitt tells me that the ceilings are 12 and a half feet high. She is usually right about these things. Tammie, our housekeeper, tells me that she needs a twelve-foot ladder to dust the ceiling fans.
While I personally feel pictures of beds to be a bit boring, we present them here for your perusal:

You can reserve a room in an international chain hotel, or you can opt for a boutique experience. We are proud of our beds, of course, but our inn contains much, much more than sleeping arrangements. We are surrounded by much, much more than you'll read about in a guide book or a tourism brochure. We do a good job of being welcoming hosts, but the city we call home does all the heavy lifting. You can't stay in New Orleans without falling in love and wanting to come back again.
Please check out web site and reserve a suite directly from our online calendar. When you cut out the middleman, you save. You'll be able to afford another one or two nights more, or more.
A votre sante.
