To all who say unpleasant things about the Claiborne 's management let me just say "Be nice or be gone." This B&B is run in New Orleans best Big Easy style. Don't expect anyone to fetch and tote for you. It is not a hotel. Stay at one if you feel the need to be overbearing to staff and outstay your welcome with rude behavior. We love The Claiborne and its gracious owner and we love the company of pleasant and polite fellow guests. Take you attitude somewhere else, negative commentors.

This is a lovely old mansion fronting the Washington park. It's a nice area and is surrounded by hip, cool restaurants. The rooms are very nice and clean. The owner can be cranky, as a previous poster mentioned. I've seen her "snap" at other guests but I've always been friendly with her so I've been back 2-3 other times.

We had a lovely stay at the Claiborne Mansion, the suite was huge. (we were in the smaller of the two ground floor suites) We were offered services but prefered to help ourselves when necessary, like relaxing in our own privite home away from home. Every morning we took a short walk to our favorite breakfast coffee shop. The Claiborn is just outside The Quarter, a short walk from the commotion, and offered a welcome respit. The courtyard, filled with shade trees and beautiful pool, affords one a calm place to relax away from the world outside. We didn't want to leave, we will return again.

I read the reviews posted here before going to the Claiborne Mansion, and was concerned, but all for not. The room was very spacious in a great location, as stated. The owner was never rude or even curt with us. She was really quite generous and kind. We had a lovely stay.

The suite was very nice, and is much larger than other bed & breakfast and hotels that we have visited in New Orleans. The pool and landscaping were a nice escape from the hectic pace of the French Quarter. The proprietor was courteous, but reserved.

The only downside to the Claiborne Mansion is that they offer essentially no breakfast. One day they provided good pastries, but the remainder of the weekend consisted of stale bread & jam. (The kitchen area which is available 24 hours was not very clean, and did not have a stove)

The room gets an A+ The location gets an A+ The service gets a B-. The "breakfast" gets a F.

Would we stay here again? Yes.

The mansion was beautiful. The location superb, near at least 6 clubs on Frenchmen St. Loved the neighborhood. The service was lacking and the proprietress was surly.

The mansion is lovely, we had a lovely suite. Even though the room did not have a queen size bed (as advertised), the bed was a full. The Mansion is listed as a bed and breakfast offering cheese & crackers, etc. Expect to get and/or make your own breakfast, there wasn't even coffee available for us during the morning. If I wanted water or crackers I would have to get them myself, it was like staying at a condo. The owner is not very friendly or helpful.
