This room was given to us from a friend; and what a great gift! We stayed in room 1 which was the Scarlet O'hara room. Our room was very big with a large comfortable king size bed and a large Victorian claw foot tub with hand nozzle shower. We checked in on a Thursday and left very early Sunday morning.... More

We booked online through Bookings.com. When we arrived, we were met with locked doors and repeated ringing of the bell got us nothing. The valet (who won't park your car if you are staying there) found someone for us. We were told that Bookings. com never sent them our reservation (even though we had a confirmation). We waited 15 minutes... More

This B & B in in a glorious plantation style manor with themed bedrooms . We stayed in the Bordello Jazz room and the Moulin Rouge rooms with great themed decor for 4 nights. Great location in the garden district unfortunately our rooms were only serviced once. If you're thinking of staying here I hope you don't want fresh towels... More

If I could rate it accurately it would be 3.5 out of 5 stars. The accommodation is really pretty and awe inspiring with huge ceilings and antique finishes. On day one the staff were really lovely. Tatiana checked us in and showed us our rooms advising they would be cleaned daily and fresh towels supplied. In our 4 night stay... More

Wanted to stay in the Garden District and the price was right. Checking in was a little awkward. You can park on the street in front of the Mansion but didn’t know that prior to arrival. Very old, unique room with very high ceiling. Comfortable room temp was difficult to maintain. Perfect for a base to explore the city for... More

convenient to public transportation and located in the garden district. A beautiful place - be careful if you are handicapped - lots of stairs to climb. Coffee was a K-cup machine, and breakfast was good. We got an early start most days and didn't eat there.

An amazing sight as you arrive with the entrance hall and the public rooms looking like a museum. After a great first impression things went downhill rapidly, the member of staff was abrupt and unhelpful, we had only asked for a couple of pillows but was told that there were none, which we later found out was untrue.

Magnolia Mansion is breathtakingly beautiful. We had a tour of the entire house before deciding to book a room. We were very pleased with the service and cleanliness of the home. The breakfast was small but enough. The location is very convenient and close to several touristy areas. Frenchman's St., Bourban St., and Jackson Square are nearby. It was very... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
