Welcome to Chez Palmiers Bed and Breakfast

 Your New Orleans Home Away From Home

For Availability and Reservations Go to AVAILABILITY

Chez Palmiers is the expression of its owners' love for New Orleans and their desire to be part of this great city.

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.

Owner operators Betsy and Bill Rayner invite you to relax and enjoy your stay in New Orleans in their 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 bedif you choose towe 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.

Our Rooms

Chez Palmiers (House of  Palms) offers 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 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.

Marge's Salon

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, cooled by the in-room air conditioner. You can 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. Comfortably furnished and decorated, the Russian Suite offers you the space and privacy you deserve after a long day of sightseeing. The sitting area, with drop-leaf table, provides the space to share your morning coffee with your companion. The additional sitting area has room for you to stretch out and relax without having to lay on the bed. The Russian Suite can accommodate one to two guests. (The bathroom has a shower, no tub.)

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.
