Your New Orleans Home Away From Home
For Availability and Reservations Go to AVAILABILITY
Chez Palmiers is a perfect little inn for enjoying all the best of this captivating city, New Orleans.
Located in the historic Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, just two blocks from the French Quarter and four blocks from Frenchman Street (popular with the neighborhood's locals), you'll be within easy walking distance of many of the sites, restaurants, bars and clubs, and the characters and music that have made New Orleans famous. The new Streetcar line is right at the corner, making it easy to explore other parts of the city as well. While access to the excitement of the City is a stone's throw away, you'll also enjoy the peace and quiet of our Marigny neighborhood from our private back deck.
Owner operators Betsy and Bill Rayner invite you to relax and enjoy your stay in New Orleans in our traditional Creole Cottage. Originally built in the mid-1800's, it was renovated in the 1990's. We have furnished our home with local art, along with artwork, furnishings, and memorabilia from our favorite travel destinations. We bid you to enjoy a little slice of Europe as you take in all of the charm of New Orleans. Everyone looking for a bed and breakfast looks for a place that fits their personality, a place they'll be comfortable in for more than just sleeping each night. We hope you will find that place with us.
We encourage you to spend your mornings, afternoons or evenings relaxing on the deck. Following a day of touring around the city, shopping in the French Quarter and on Magazine Street, visiting the famous Audubon Zoo and Aquarium, or after an evening of dining and nightlife, you may cool off outside before retiring to your private, air conditioned room and a good night's sleep in one of our comfy queen-size beds.
For those not familiar with staying at a b&b, we are not a hotel. Although we live on the premises, we are not available 24/7. It's a lot like staying at a friend's home. Just as a friend lets you make your own bed—if you choose to—we leave it up to you. We ask our guests to reuse towels and washcloths during their stay, like they would at home, unless they're here for more than three or four days. For many of our guests, this is the enjoyment of staying in a b&b rather than a hotel: it's like staying with friends.
Chez Palmiers (House of Palms) offers three different rooms, all with queen beds, private baths, and in-room amenities to make your stay with us more enjoyable. You'll have your own TV and individually controlled air conditioner, as well as open access to the dining room leading to the deck. A continental breakfast is available each morning including yogurt, fruit, cereals, breads, juices and coffee. An espresso machine is available for those who crave a latté or café au lait. We also offer free, secure WiFi Internet access.
The Hail Brittania Suite
This suite on the first floor offers roomy accommodations with a bedroom and large bathroom with vanity area. This charming suite includes the amenities mentioned above, a closet, and a sitting room with a sleeper sofa. You'll be able to enjoy your breakfast in private if chosen, or relax and watch TV in the comfort of this regal space. The Hail Brittania Suite sleeps one to two people in a queen-sized bed plus up to two additional guests in the queen-sized sleeper sofa.

Located on the first floor...Marge's Italian Salon! Named for our basset hound/co-hostess' favorite place to curl up, you'll dream the night away comfortably. You may unwind watching TV or composing your next novel at our antique secretary. The single window, with interior shutters, ensures you'll be able to sleep as long as you like with as little light intrusion as possible. The bathroom for this room was recently remodeled. The kitchen is just one door away, and the deck easily accessible through the common dining room. Marge's Salon accommodates one to two guests. Rates and reservations below.
From Russia with Love Suite
This upstairs space has been transformed into a roomy, private suite filled with the hosts' favorite Russian souvenirs and propaganda. Enjoy breakfast in your room with Comrade Lenin, or join other guests in the dining room or on the deck. A coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator are provided for your convenience. Comfortably furnished and decorated, the Russian Suite offers you space and privacy with a bedroom and separate sitting area. A daybed in the sitting room area may accommodate a third guest in this suite. The Russian Suite can accommodate one to two guests in the queen bed and a further guest in a daybed.

Please note that up until a year ago, small bed and breakfasts like ours did not collect taxes on our rooms rented. The Louisiana State Legislature recently passed legislation extending a 5% hotel/tourism/sales tax to ALL short-term rental properties, regardless of size or method of booking. This tax will apply to rooms rented in privately owned homes and apartments as well as licensed bed & breakfasts, guest houses, small inns, boutique hotels and corporate mega-chains. The effective date of the new tax was July 1, 2016.
