Catch a wish disguised as an idle daydream. An ideal location from which to explore authentic New Orleans, La Belle Esplanade is close to the things that tourists want to see, but far enough away to be in the real city, where people live.
Our small hotel has five suites. We are usually around but the hotel is not staffed 24 hours a day. If you need anything, let us know. This is what we are here for. Most people don’t need anything because they are out and about having adventures, as they should be. It makes me sad when people travel all the way to New Orleans to sit in a hotel room.
If you would like us to check you in in-person, please let us know. We are happy to do it. New Orleans is a city that is like no place else. It can be confusing to the point of sensory overload. We are here to help. We are New Orleans goodwill ambassadors. This is what we do for a living.
La Belle does not have cable. Our televisions use antennae, old school. Did you come to New Orleans to watch TV? No.
You are in New Orleans. You never know what will happen when you turn a corner. Life is what you make of it. Grow where you are planted. You can make worse decisions than staying at La Belle Esplanade. Trust me, you will be the envy of your friends.
Your humble narrator is hard at work at a bar in the French Quarter. I am writing this page:
La Belle has been open for business since 2012. We have seen a lot of changes in New Orleans.
IF YOU WANT TO MEET FOR BREAKFAST OR FOR LUNCH TO DISCUSS NEW ORLEANS, PICK OUR BRAINS FOR RESOURCES, OR TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT YOU WON’T FIND ON THE INTERNET, WE ARE AVAILABLE.
YOU BELONG HERE.
Check our availability calendar to see what we have available when you’re visiting New Orleans. We only have five suites so only a lucky few can stay at La Belle Esplanade. You can always spend some time on our blog if you want to learn more about La Belle Esplanade and our neighborhood. You can spend a lot of valuable time reading our blog.
Visit New Orleans like you live here. You will make some good memories that will last you rest of your life.
Catch a wish.
