Room Detail

Estelle Suite

Reserve Compare

Estelle, the subject of some of Degas’ most revered paintings, was a first cousin of the Degas family and the wife of Degas’ youngest brother, René. A marriage of elegance and intimacy, the Estelle Suite is the showpiece of the house. The room’s majestic beauty is accentuated by magnificent draperies, a cut crystal chandelier, and its four-post king-sized bed. Once the setting for Degas’ painting a "Woman Seated on a Balcony", the room’s private balcony, overlooking oak tree adorned Esplanade Avenue, is a perfect place to relax and inhale that unmistakable New Orleans air.

Estelle’s bathroom features a classic Victorian claw-foot tub. With a twin daybed with trundle in its adjacent alcove, the Estelle Suite can accommodate up to 4 people; the suite can be further expanded by opening it onto the Josephine Room to accommodate families or large groups.

The Estelle Suite has proven to be a favorite by those looking for a romantic getaway, honeymoon, and it is even perfect as a bridal suite during our "Dressing of the Bride Event".
