The park across the street from our inn has a stature of Clio.  She is Goddess of Peace and Genius of History.  Clio is pronounced KLEYE-oh here, not KLEE-oh.  If you mispronounce words from the way you are used to, you’ll approximate a New Orleans accent.  The statue in the park is the last thing remaining from the 1884 New Orleans World’s Fair.  The park is named after the Father of Louisiana History, Charles Etienne Gayarré, who once was a neighbor of ours.  You’ll learn a thing or two while you’re in New Orleans.  Our neighborhood is a rich and densely textured place thick with tradition and romances.

The bedroom’s front floor-to-ceiling window opens to a private balcony that overlooks Gayarré Park.  It’s an oasis up there in the oak branches.

The whimsical pink and turquoise rooms with their purple ceilings make the perfect setting for planning a day’s escapades or for relaxing to get your second wind. An elegant queen bed and a leather sofa and armchair attend to creature comforts.

The suite includes a French-style private bath with antique claw foot tub that does have a shower head. Antique mirrored dressers and washstands, and marble-topped tables are artfully arranged.

This is a large and airy suite on the second floor that features original artwork, including an oversized portrait of Lola Montez.

This suite is a treasured hideaway, with plenty of room and a playful decor.  The private balcony that overlooks Esplanade Avenue is a leafy, private oasis perfect for greeting the day or ending the night.  Plug in the fairy lights that are strung in the ironwork for an extra magical touch.
