“We keep returning!!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We have traveled to the New Orleans Jazz Fest for the past 5 years and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. The "Chimes" feels like coming home. We can always count on being treated like family by Jill and her family. We all have choices and if you're used to staying in a hotel with a bath and a bed, you just might want to experience a bit more of New Orleans' warmth and charm by visiting the "Chimes." Jill's breakfast table is a great way to start the day...if you like meeting and sharing coffee with people who come from all corners of the world.

Sandra and Norm, thank you for telling the world about us. Jazz Fest is such a special time on the property and it wouldn't be the same without you both. Let's keep the good times going, the music discussions continuing and the good friendships solid.

We were married here 20 years ago and chose this spot to celebrate our 20th anniversary as well. Couldn't have been happier...forever a fabulous start to the rest of our lives! I would highly recommend a stay in beautiful B&B; it's updated, romantic, and within walking distance to a variety of lovely shops and restaurants. Jill is amazing, breakfast is fresh and delicious, and the private courtyard is beautiful and relaxing. I hope to celebrate many more anniversaries there as well!

Room Tip: rooms are elegantly small...but beautiful courtyard and lots to do in Nola. Pick the larger 2 story...

We stayed at the Chimes for a few days with two other couples, one of whom had been there before. The Chimes is a bit funky with small rooms and beds so high I practically had to vault onto the bed at night. Linens were nice and there were some nice antiques in the room but overall I was disappointed.

When I think of a B&B I anticipate good food but the food here was just adequate compared to experiences I've had elsewhere. Breakfast every morning consisted of coffee or tea and orange juice. There was also bread and pastries and fruit and cheese. One morning there were hard boiled eggs. But there was nothing special about the food. The owner, Jill, was very knowledgeable about restaurants and attractions in New Orleans so that was helpful. Her husband is maître de at Arnaud's a lovely restaurant so we went there and had a great meal and terrific service. We were comped a dessert and an appetizer courtesy of the husband so that was nice.

There is a nice courtyard where we sat in the evenings for wine and cheese before dinner. So there were a few things that were attractive there but next time we go to New Orleans I think I'll skip The Chimes.

Room Tip: Our friends who had been there before had the best room in the house. It's in the corner and is...

We had a good time with you and your friends during your stay at the Chimes B&B. Even when we try out best we cannot please everyone. Our breakfast is the best it can be, keeping in mind that our City license does not allow cooking. Daily, the fresh bread and pastries are picked-up, early morning at the bakery, before guests arrive in the dining room. The multiple bowls of fruit are cut each morning as well. It is unfortunate that you had a different expectation and we will look at publicizing our menu more prominently on our website. Thank you for offering your opinion as we ALWAYS consider comments very carefully.

What a comfortable and charming B&B. The rooms were lovely, clean and well appointed location in the Garden District is quiet , beautiful and rich with history. A wonderful neighborhood for walking and shopping. Jill was a terrific host with great recommendations for food,music and culture. Lovely conversations around the breakfast table. Delightful to take a break in the shady and peaceful courtyard reading and listening to the chimes

The Chimes is a great place to stay. It is located a couple of blocks from the St Charles Street Car line in the Garden District so it is easy to get into the French Quarter. The rooms are clean and well decorated and comfortable. Jill is a great host and we enjoyed meeting the other guests at breakfast.

A few years back, we found ourselves tired of staying in the quarter in hotels. We started our research on B and B's. We tried the Chimes and were very satisfied with everything about it. Great place to stay, quiet, comfortable and a great breakfast. The streetcars are only a few blocks away and some great places to eat are close bye. If you stay at the Chimes, you must eat a meal at LePetite Grocery. It is great food. We stayed three nights this past week to celebrate the wife's birthday. Cannot wait to return. The only place to stay if you want peace and quite, while having all of New Orleans available when you want it.
