We reserved this B&B because it was in a list as the best B&B in N.O. I've to say that the place was nice, the room was clean and cosy and the living room was comfortable. You have a streetcar stop that takes you to the French Quarter literally in front of the B&B, and some restaurants and shops at walking distance.
There were however two major flaws:
- Everything, starting by the owner's attitude, was very pretentious. The furniture and decor was as if the interior designer was a rich old lady. It could be that we were a young couple and this kind of decadence is targeted to old couples, I don't know. There were plastic cups pretending to be glass in the breakfast table. Breakfast itself was not very impressive, althought the owner was selling it as it was heaven on earth. In general, I perceived the attitude from the owners that they were always right, not very helpful in dealing with little problems or inconveniences that may arise and that we were lucky to be in their place (when it's actually the opposite, they are the ones making money with our stay) I had the feeling the owners way of making you feel good was repeating to you 100 times how good they were, instead of doing something about it.
- Neighborhood: average neighborhood with no charm. Kind of close to bad areas, so you couldn't walk to French Quarter even if it was just 30 mins walk.
Imho, not a really bad place to be, but not fantastic either. I would go to a nicer neighborhood next time in NO

I regret this guest did not enjoy their experience at our B&B. We work very hard to give everyone the best experience we can offer. We cater to a very diverse clientele and try to offer something for everyone. The one thing we have never been accused of is being pretentious. This is an upscale property and it decorated accordingly. We have gone to great lengths to have the latest technology available for our younger guests such as flat screen TVs, iPads, and wireless to make them feel more at home. I think most of the time we hit our mark.
