My place is close to the most lively music scene in the city, just a block away on Frenchmen Street, and 3 blocks from the edge of the French Quarter. You'll experience all the excitement downtown New Orleans has to offer, and come back to a peaceful and restful environment when you've had your fill of music, food, and drink. My place is good for families and groups, and since you'll have the whole space, you won't be disturbing anyone if your group is up late.
The Royal Elysian guesthouse is within an 1840's era brick masonry building, one of the oldest structures in the neighborhood. The building was originally a bakery store on the ground level for nearly 100 years, with living space above. The building was fully restored in 2015, and received a 2016 Award of Excellence in Historic Preservation from the Louisiana Landmark Society. We are excited to welcome you to enjoy the space as we have enjoyed bringing it back to life!
The guesthouse is on the second floor, while the first floor is a commercial business space which closes at 10pm. We have 5 total beds, including 4 queen beds and one queen sofa bed. The room with the sofa bed is part of a larger suite with one of the other queen beds.
The rooms also connect as double suite rooms as well.
The guesthouse is on the second floor, while the first floor is our lovely little Thai restaurant, SukhoThai, which closes at 10pm. Guests will have a separate entrance from the business, available to use any time of day or night, and will need to access the rooms by stairs, so unfortunately we do not have an accessible entrance for wheelchairs. Entry is by keypad and a key is also available.
The bedrooms do not have a private bathrooms. Just down the hall is a men's bathroom and a ladies' bathroom. These rooms are for use by our guests only, and are each equipped with shower, toilet and lavatory. We provide towels, soap and shampoo in the bedrooms for guest use. We also provide slippers for use in the rooms and hall so that shoes can be left in front of the bedroom.
The kitchen is just for the guesthouse, and is equipped with microwave, coffee maker, toaster, refrigerator, dishwasher, dining table and other seating. We do not have a stove for cooking on the premises. We generally stock the kitchen with some light breakfast options for our guests.
We will be available to help with anything you need during your stay, and will typically have someone on site until 11:30pm most nights. Outside of that time, we will be nearby to assist with any issues you may have, just a short phone call away.
