This is one of the special places you happen upon when travelling. A charming historical cottage in the beautiful Algiers Point neighborhood. Nicely decorated bedrooms with ensuite. Private and peaceful. Very comfortable king size bed. Pretty garden and lots of memorabilia in Kevin's & Wendy's home that they share with their guests. We didn't meet Wendy, but Kevin was a...

I came to NOLA to work on a project. It was a wonderful 3-day trip even though difficult and somewhat destabilized (by BOTH the Delta and United debacles). Kevin and Wendy provided an oasis from the craziness... a wonderful bed, a lovely and relaxing back porch, super breakfasts, and several very nice chats. I'm not a B&B veteran but this...

My partner and I came on a brief visit to visit my sister across the river. We'd both been to New Orleans but not to Algiers, so it was very cool to see a new (old!) part of town. Taking the short ferry ride to and from Canal Street became a lovely part of the experience for us, and even...

Many thanks for your wonderful review. We will take your advice and put Abita Rootbeer on our grocery list :-) Abita Amber beer (the "hard stuff" as you call it) will still be on the menu. We look forward to your next visit.

I'm not a veteran B&Ber, but this was recommended by a colleague of mine for a short two-night stay that would be close to Gretna, where we were involved in a theater production. My first hint that THOTRS would be so much more was the pre-stay emailing back and forth with Kevin, the owner. He was friendly, casual and accommodating,...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is uniquely decorated & comfortable. We were made to feel welcome immediately. Kevin & Wendy were very gracious & happy to give us advice about where to go for sightseeing or meals.Having a dog to pet was a bonus. Algeirs is a quiet & unigue neighbourhood. Would not hesitate to book for our next...

Staying in Algiers

Neighbourhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.

“All the rooms were great (we took a tour) and each had a king-size bed and separate bathroom, it was a secluded, safe and comfy experience.”

“Red room has private bathroom down the hall (not en-suite), but trade-off is it's a large room with a king bed. Worth it.”
