My high school girlfriends and I spent two nights at The Chimes while we were on our road trip in the South. It was a wonderful experience and we hated to leave. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The morning breakfast was excellent and the hosts were a wealth of knowledge on New Orleans.
The trolley (within 2 blocks) runs to downtown and the French Quarter which makes it nice if you don't want to fool with taking a car...parking, traffic, etc.
The area is quiet and safe feeling which we appreciated as women traveling alone. Can't wait to go back..
