Oakview Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful place to stay in New Orleans.
Aptly named, it's located just across from a park and provides a view of the huge, intricately shaped oak trees there.
Just minutes away from the city center by streetcar and bus (both stop right around the corner) or rental (plenty of room for your car here), it is a a quiet and peaceful getaway after a busy day and/or night on the town.
Every morning and late afternoon I just relaxed on the porch with a drink and watched playful squirrels scour the yard for food and chase each other through the trees.
The rooms are spacious and each decorated to a different theme, with the common denominator being a huge bed, that instantly makes you feel as if you've stepped into a castle :-)
The host Russell is a great guy, always ready for a talk, and willing to point out some great venues to visit to accommodate your tastes when needed.
He makes a mean breakfast too, and you'll need it if you are to immerse yourself in the busy NOLA experience of great music and abundant alcohol!
Initially me and my girlfriend booked a hotel in the city center to stay at, but we reconsidered and chose to stay here instead. Best decision we could make!
Russell was very accommodating and went out of his way to facilitate our stay and book us different rooms to be able to cover our whole stay at the very last minute.
This idyllic place made our stay in New Orleans so enjoyable, we hope to come back again soon!
Russell, thanks for helping to make our NOLA experience great, we love you man!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Oak view is a lovely 100 year old historic Victorian. It is ideally located across the street from the famous City Park and the New Orleans Museum. That means we are walking distance to Jazz Fest, across the street from Voodoo Fest, two blocks from the start of the Endymion Parade, two blocks from the historic Cemetery, around the corner from Bayou Bogaloo festival, and a very short distance to the French Quarter, downtown and the convention center. The trolly stops in front of the door.Further the crescent city classic race and most other races and marathons ends here at the park across from the bed and breakfast. Unbelievable but true.We also feel that we are at least in the TOP 10 for the best Bed and Breakfast not number 25. WE are totally new, totally renovated and modernly upgraded with whirlpools in every room. ... more less
