Welcome to Chez Palmiers Bed and Breakfast

 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 Frenchmen 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, along with hound hostesses Marge & Peggy, 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 and completely modernized in 2017. 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. 

We are thrilled to present our heated pool and renovated deck area.  What better way to start and end each day than dipping into our cocktail pool and relaxing on the deck?

Everyone looking for a bed and breakfast looks for a place that fits their personality, a home they'll be comfortable in for more than just sleeping each night. We hope you will find that place with us.

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.
