Frequently Asked Questions

How far is Elysian Fields Inn from the French Quarter?

Elysian Fields Inn is only 5 blocks from the French Quarter and Bourbon Street. It’s a short walk and you can grab a drink to go from Mag’s Bar which is right next door!

How far is Elysian Fields Inn from the airport?

Elysian Fields Inn is only 16 miles from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) and it’s an easy 20 minute drive on I-10 to get here.

Do we need a car in New Orleans?

Not really. Elysian Fields Inn is a short 5 block walk from the French Quarter and it’s only 1 block from Frenchmen Street and all the fabulous restaurants and music venues, like the world famous Blue Nile. If you want to explore beyond the French Quarter and Faubourg Marigny, you can always grab a cab or an Uber.

Are pets allowed?

We will allow dogs on a case-by-case basis. Give us a call at 504-948-9420 and we can talk about it. This is a 9 room Bed & Breakfast so if your pet barks at the sound of a door opening or closing, or footsteps in the hallway, then it’s probably not a good fit. We do have a sweet girl dog named Beck who is very friendly and well-behaved. She loves to make friends with other well-behaved puppies!

Is parking available?

Parking is not a problem at Elysian Fields Inn.  We have limited secured, covered parking available in our garage.  This is on a first come, first served basis with no in and out privileges.  We are one of the few places to offer free covered parking in New Orleans! If you need access to your car while you are here, there is almost always free parking available on the street.

How are the rooms appointed?

Every room has a private bathroom en suite.  We triple sheet all of our beds with 700 thread count Egyptian cotton linens.  AVEDA bath products provided include shampoo, conditioner, soaps, bath salts and moisturizer.  TVs in every room.

"My fiancée and I spent four nights at Elysian Fields Inn on our first visit to New Orleans. It was a perfect vantage point from which to explore the city and Bob & Michelle were wonderful hosts. Our room was beyond expectations for such a reasonable price and every day's breakfast was even better than the last. (Don't miss out on the pancakes.) We can't recommend this B & B enough. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to The Big Easy. 5/5"
Jason B. – TripAdvisorA great place to fall in love with New Orleans
"Only there for two nights, but we settled in immediately. The room was spacious and clean, the bed very comfortable, and the lofty ceilings with crown molding made it all seem quite regal. An excellent location, we were just blocks from the music on Frenchmen Street, with an easy walk to our favorite old places in the Quarter and our favorite new (to us) places in Bywater. Owners Michelle and Bob were gracious, personable and eager to help us find restaurants and other shops that would be a good fit for us. And the breakfasts were superb! Highly recommended all round."
James W – TripAdvisorExcellent Inn, and even better hosts!
"This was our third visit in as many years to Elysian Fields Inn. We loved the previous owners and were a little worried when we learned Inn had changed hands just a few weeks before our return visit. We were delighted to find the new owners to be friendly and charming and enthusiastic about their new venture. They have made a few changes to the lovely inn, which is located close to Frenchman Street and a short walk to the French Quarter. Breakfasts are nice, and oh my, that blueberry French toast casserole! Highly recommend."
DonnaDAF – TripAdvisorNew owners, still great!
"My husband and I stayed here last weekend. What a nice place. Bob and Michelle were so nice. The room was lovely with a nice bathroom. We slept very well. The breakfast is served from 8a-10a. I'm not much of a breakfast eater so I tried the sausage and fruit. It was very good. My husband had eggs, sausage, toast and fruit. He thought it was very good and enjoyed the hot sauce with his eggs. There is a sweet dog there named Beck."
theexpatlife – TripAdvisorWonderful B & B!
"Very nice place, very clean! I was 100% satisfied with our stay! My friend and I required unique sleeping arrangements... Not a problem, they went above and beyond to accommodate! When I inquired about a safe, secure location to park my motorcycle for the night/weekend, without hesitation they were able to find a solution for us!"
Nicholas S. – TripAdvisorExcellent!
"We had a delightful stay at Elysian Fields. Our hosts were a joy and took care of our every need. We hope to return to stay longer. We strongly recommend Elysian Fields for anyone who wants to enjoy great hospitality near the exciting French Quarter. Everything is just a short walking distance from the B & B."
