Our Clio Suite has a bedroom, a sitting room, a private bath, and a private balcony that overlooks Esplanade Avenue.  The balcony offers a beautiful view.  We live on a beautiful street.  The balcony looks out at the small park in front of our house that is home to the statue of Clio, Goddess of Peace, Genius of History.  The statue is the last thing left from the 1884 New Orleans World’s Fair.  Our small boutique hotel is located in a very interesting neighborhood.  We are close to the all the usual tourist must-sees, but we are in a part of the city that is rich with history and beguiling details.

Our part of New Orleans is full of wonders.  You’ll see.


This is a very large suite.  There is plenty of room.  The sitting room has a sofa, an easy chair, and oversized footrest, a desk and desk chair, parasols hanging from the ceiling, Mardi Gras float lettering on the wall, gold masks and fleurs-de-lis, and other amenities, too.  The bedroom has a queen bed, also with plenty of room.  The balcony overlooks Esplanade Avenue, and the park in the middle of the street, through the oak tree branches that twist in front of the house.  It is peaceable here.

La Belle Esplanade is in a colorful historic mansion full of whimsical details.  The Clio Suite is romantic, if romance is your thing.  It is also practical if you’re looking for is a quiet night’s sleep between New Orleans adventures.  People stay in our Clio Suite for honeymoons but monks also choose this suite.  Why not?  If you want to get yourself into a New Orleans state of mind, there is no other small hotel like La Belle Esplanade.  Good, authentic New Orleans memories are made on our street.

Our Clio Suite is located on the second floor, hence the balcony.  To get to the Clio Suite its an antique staircase up to the door.  There are no elevators in this mansion built in 1883.  It’s all original.

We only have five suites at La Belle Esplanade so we tend to fill up early during busy times of year.  Plan ahead!
