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.
A dimly lit parlour greets you with vintage opulence
And all the walls the shade of romance-a palest pink
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...
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.
The Olivier House Hotel is located in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans. Visit their site HERE. (Pay no mind to the prices listed online they have nothing to do with the real room fees) They are extremely reasonable and well worth every penny!
