I had actually found this place online a year ago with the intention of booking for NYE, but the room I wanted (Creole Queen) was taken! Fast forward a year and we nabbed it for 2017, and no regrets. Everything here is decadent yet adorable, warm and inviting. Plus the food is killer. I lived for those breakfasts. Honestly don't think I can recommend this place enough, and there's not much else to say. If you're looking for a place, stay here. I know I'm definitely going back when it's warmer.
My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Terrell House Bed and Breakfast. We loved our stay. The room was clean, lovely and well-appointed. Breakfast both mornings was delicious. We would go back in a minute and highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
It is a typical New Orleans house, old, full of charm and bohemian. The guys who run the place are really friendly and will give you advice on places to go. We were really comfortable staying there and it is very close to everything.
This was my second stay at Madewood. The first time was so wonderful I had to return! Miss Lisa and Miss Angie are both so wonderful at making certain that everyone is completely happy. If you get a chance to converse with the owner, take advantage of the time! He has led an extraordinary life, including being a Rhodes Scholar. Also, the film, "The Beguiled" was recently shot there, staring Nicole Kidman!
Words cannot explain the greatness of the Hubbard Mansion and the fine people who operates the facility. It felt like being at home and Mr. Don, Ms. Shelia and Nicole were great. Ms. Shelia gave us a tour of the rooms, while Nicole provided us with a great breakfast every morning (Ask about the warm lemon cake). Mr. Don knowledge and wisdom of New Orleans gave us a glimpse into places to visit while we were there. We stayed in the Victoria Room, simply beautiful. All of the rooms have their own story. We really enjoyed our stay and is looking forward to staying there when we return to New Orleans.
I highly recommend this bed-and-breakfast. The value was comparable to any hotel in the area but you get so much more with your experience. The service was first class and the breakfast we had the next morning with some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. This bed-and-breakfast is very centrally located in the city and a very short ride to both uptown and downtown areas. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be coming back.
A very beautiful house and grounds, friendly and helpful owner. This was our first B&B experience and we loved it. The whole package was great: wine and cheese, dinner by candlelight, and the breakfast. The food was truly outstanding!
This spacious and very comfortable B&B is just a few blocks from the French Quarter in a quiet area yet convenient to several neighborhoods.The hosts were friendly, upbeat and generous with their information about things to do and places to eat. Breakfast was made to order and delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend this Inn to friends.
Really cozy and wonderful stay in this charming plantation house. Enjoyed staying there. Dinner and breakfast with the other guests and talking to the hosts was very nice experience. It is an old house with a lot of charme
check-in was easy, rooms were good, location is great, very laid back accommodations for a bed and breakfast which is great if you don't really want to be too social. Food is self-service continental style breakfast (cereals, coffee, tea, bagels, etc.)
We really enjoyed our stay here for our anniversary. It is the perfect home away from home. Many thanks to Matt and Lyn for their warm welcome. This is a beautifully maintained historic property with all the comforts of home. I especially appreciated the well-stocked breakfast items, the reading library and the zen frog statue in the garden.
This is my fourth time staying at La Dauphine Residence des Artistes. The house is full of character and the rooms are charming (each decorated with a specific theme). You are within easy walking distance to the French Quarter. Your hosts Ray and Kim couldn't be more congenial and gracious. In addition they are kind, unpretentious, knowledgeable, warm and welcoming, caring, intelligent and accomplished. One of my favorite parts of the day is having breakfast and exchanging life experiences with Ray. Take advantage of the copious reading material and DVD's that are available. I am interested in "off the beaten path" adventures. There are some right in the neighborhood where you'd be staying. When I read La Dauphine's website, I knew I would be compatible. If you need a pristine environment with daily room service, this is not the place for you.
We loved our recent stay at the Creole Inn! Kim & Charlie are the onsite supers and they were always available to meet any needs. Kim made coffee every morning and sat with us each day to provide new and different places to go in NOLA during our stay. We stayed in the Memories room and it was a perfect fit! The only problem we had during our stay was the backdoor steps to the patio were broken on the first step. It made it difficult to step down if you have anything in your hands. Other than that little step, we loved our stay and will return soon!! Thank you Kim & Charlie for all your generosity!
This is my go-to place in New Orleans -- great location; comfortable space; like living in a house rather than a single room. You can stay in and still be in New Orleans - don't want to go out every night for dinner? Then don't - use the kitchen to cook at 'home'. The bed is comfortable - only drawback is a very small bathroom, but not is functional so not a huge complaint. And when you can, have the breakfast prepared by the owners - it is delish!!
A beautiful Garden District Mansion. The facility was immaculate. The morning breakfast was delicious and the perfect proportion. Must try the lemon pound cake. Location is perfect for Garden District. Street Car stop is right in front. Great restaurants are within walking distance. Morning conversations with Mr. Hubbard are like first account history lessons. Whenever in New Orleans, please try to stay at The Hubbard Mansion. The place is spectacular, but the conservation is even worth more.
Magnolia Mansion is located in the charming garden district of New Orleans. Overall, the house is pretty and set back behind a wrought iron fence and locked gate. Our review is heavily influenced by the dreary guest room (Courtyard #1). While our room was large, it lacked natural light, having one small window that looked out into a storage area for a former onsite restaurant. The room was furnished with an odd mix of furniture and wall art that seemed to be put in place to fill spots. Nothing about the room was consistent with the decoration of the main floor of Magnolia Mansion. I'm guessing that our experience would have been different if we had stayed in the main house as opposed to the courtyard.Our room did not have its own thermostat and was cold during the night and into the morning. On a more positive note, our room included a mini-frig, microwave oven and a toaster. Service was adequate with someone being there to check us in and out and give us keys and Wi-Fi code. The attendant was also onsite in the mornings to set up continental breakfast. There is ample street-side free parking.
location location location! the balcony guesthouse was within walking distance to amazing nightlife and food spots. the silk road under the b&b is absolutely delicious. the only thing i would rate negatively was the cleanliness of our room - there was quite a lot of dust under the bed, on the windows and on the blades of the ceiling fan (it fell like snow when we turned it on). to end on a post note, the staff was absolutely amazing and very helpful :-) i would definitely recommend staying here!
Loved our host,gave us great ideas where to eat,visit told us great stories and history of NOLA. The Room and bathroom downstairs were clean only downfall was no dresser to place our clothes in so they remained in our suitcase but not a big deal. Light breakfast served which was different day day. Host was very accommodating as our plane was late and we arrived at midnight. Uber taxi to from the airport is half the price of regular taxi so look into this. Would suggest arriving on the Sunday prior to a festival and leaving on the following Saturday as crowds are thick and you just move with them can’t see too much. All in all Kate and Dave’s B n B was a great experience and will stay there again.
We came for the "European Attitude" pool and court area but we will come back for so much more. We couldn't wait to come down for breakfast each day just to mingle with other guests while our marvelous host, Jesse, held court on the attractions, culture and history of the city as well as engaging recollections on his colorful life. It never got old. If you're willing to walk, the GHI is ideally situated among the Garden and Warehouse Districts, the Superdome, the French Quarter and the Riverfront. If not, all are a short taxi or Uber ride away. Did i say that the GHI is only steps away from the incomparable WWII museum? In all, just a marvelous and memorable stay. We will return!
This is a very homey and welcoming bed-and-breakfast. Within perfect walking distance to Frenchmen or the Quarter. My husband and I have very pleasant conversation with Ray and appreciated his hospitality. It is an old house, and the rooms are very close together; so you will you're everything that goes on in your neighbors room :) I would highly recommend staying here !
In terms of location Hubbard Mansion is perfectly situated on leafy St Charles Street, just far enough away from the city for peace and tranquillity but with a brief ride to get back into the action. What really made my experience in Nola special were my hosts, who can’t do enough to ensure your stay is a pleasant one. I was greeted by Shelia with a hug and who of course has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the best places to dine, shop, etc. They are very proud of both their heritage and the history of how this lovely family home came to be, which you can read about in photos and other framed items adorning the central hallway and lobby Each room has a story … I stayed in the Dookie which was tastefully furnished just enough to give you everything you could need, with a very comfortable bed and a nice quaint bathroom and old fashioned tub. All the rooms are immaculate, together with a large beautifully appointed dining room where we were served breakfast, but it was not stuffy, just great southern hospitality that made you feel relaxed straight away and set you up for the day ahead. If I ever visit New Orleans Hubbard Mansion is definitely where I would call home David Bellerby – Auckland, New Zealand
Fate di un agriturismo o di un B&B a New Orleans, Louisiana negli USA, la vostra casa lontano da casa
Situata tra i meandri del fiume Mississippi e il lago Pontchartrain, New Orleans è conosciuta come la “Big Easy”. Lo stile di vita rilassato e la musica jazz dal vivo ne fanno un luogo unico e memorabile dove soggiornare.
Cosa fare a New Orleans
Chi visita New Orleans per la prima volta dovrebbe fare un tour a piedi della città per scoprire la sua storia e le sue attrazioni. Una gita sul battello a vapore Natchez, con la sua musicale Calliope, è un ottimo modo per vedere i luoghi del fiume Mississippi. Un altro insolito tour guidato porta i visitatori in giro per il cimitero Lafayette e spiega perché le tombe siano tutte fuori della terra, alleggerendo la cosa con alcuni aneddoti divertenti. Il Vecchio Convento delle Orsoline, il più antico edificio della Louisiana, merita una visita insieme all’ Old US Mint che ora ospita il Collegio delle Arti di Newcomb e il Museo del Jazz. Una cosa che si deve assolutamente fare dal vostro agriturismo o dal vostro B&B di New Orleans è la degustazione del caffè di cicoria e delle frittelle per cui il Café du Monde è famoso. Sempre in tema di cibo e bevande assaggiate la cucina locale, la cucina creola e i panini po’boy.
