Gypsy Travels-The Olivier House Hotel New Orleans

New Orleans Guesthouses, Balconies

 On the corner of Toulouse and Dauphine Streets in the city of New Orleans, sits a hotel.

A hotel seemingly untouched by time...as if from another era.

 Giant gilded mirrors and sparkling chandeliers hang 
overlooking statues of the Buddha nestled among tropical foliage.

    And all the walls the shade of romance-a palest pink

New Orleans Balconies, New Orleans Courtyards

Curling laced ironwork balconies, gas lamps and an overgrown courtyard

 The pool a shimmering oasis

Each of the rooms tucked into a private slightly separate location 
like your own little apartment in the place they call The Vieux Carre...


Some with gardens and fountains and winding stairwells inside...


A room with a view for sure...

And some perched up high with netted beds and breezy views of the rooftops...

Every detail your eye lights on, a joy to see...

Vintage Romantic Hotels, New Orleans French Quarter

In this beautiful fairy-tale Guesthouse, we were married and then paraded the cobblestone streets in our Southern finest as the sounds of the Brass Band that led out way echoed through the streets

It will be our home away from home (At HOME)...this hidden gem...

And that way we won't have to miss her so much after all-our heart and souls' home-
The City Of New Orleans.

Disclaimer~ If you are the kind of person that requires room service, someone to carry your bags, shiny new rooms, online reservations etc. This is not the place for you. But if when you travel, your main pursuit is beauty and authentic experience...stay here. 
You will feel after a few days like you live there and you will never want to leave. Trust me.
