La Belle Esplanade

Top choice b&b in Tremé-Lafitte

A little quirky, a little saucy and the co-owner wears a jaunty fedora – a devil-may-care touch that ties the whole colorful shebang together. Furnishings in the five themed suites vary, but have chunky headboards, plush chairs, Gibson Girl portraits and claw-foot tubs. Bright, monochromatic walls keep it all pretension-free. Savor crawfish pie and other tasty Southern fare for breakfast (included).
