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-poster King 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 full-size trundle bed in its adjacent alcove, the Estelle can accommodate up to 4 people; the suite can be further expanded by opening it into the Josephine Room to accommodate families or large groups.
Estelle has proven to be a favorite of those looking for a romantic getaway or Honeymoon, and is perfect as a Bridal Suite.
