The French refer to their flag as the Tricolour. They don’t call it their Red, White and Blue. To them, it’s the Blue, White and Red. Freedom (liberté) is blue. Equality (egalité) is white. Brotherhood (fraternité) is red. New Orleans is planted on what was originally French soil. It’s a francophile place. The city’s joie de vivre has a long history. Few people who live in the city today speak French but everyone knows what it means when someone shouts out, “Laissez les bon temps rouler.” You know what it means. Let the good times roll. You’ll feel at home here.
This second-floor suite features a private balcony that overlooks the gardens in the rear, and the classical fountain depicting Leda and the Swan.
The furnishings are an antique full sized oak bed, a marble topped dressing table, antique lamps, and a wardrobe signed inside by the craftsman. Both rooms feature non-working fireplaces with impressive filigree grillwork.
The bed is an antique full-sized half mallard. Francophile details include a porcelain lamp, a bust of Emperor Napoleon, a statue of Saint Joan of Arc, and artwork that reflects love and respect for the nation that founded New Orleans. It is an affection that continues to this day. Vive la France. Some people say New Orleans is the most European city in America. In truth, it is the northernmost Caribbean city. It will all make sense when you get here.
The self-contained private bath features an antique claw foot tub equipped with shower head.
This suite is where speeches are inspired, camaraderie is declared, and l’amour is the order of the day.
