My husband and I scheduled our stay for the 2012 Sugar Bowl. We booked through the Terrell House website. We are in our late 20s and all of our friends were staying downtown in the Marriot. We thought for our first visit to New Orleans we would do it right so we booked the Terrell House after reading the reviews and looking at pictures.
If you're unsure of where to stay, pull the trigger on this place! We were really glad we did. Our room was extremely clean and inviting. The first morning we went down to breakfast and even though we weren't down there for very long, we came back to a perfectly cleaned room. Speaking of breakfast, it was great the two days we stayed and held in a beautiful setting.
We walked from this B&B down to the Magazine St. shops and also walked down to the Superdome, both were not short walks but they were enjoyable (30 minutes most likely). We were unsure of the safety in New Orleans but the Terrell House seemed to be in a fine location. The courtyard was surrounded by a beautiful iron gate and you used an electric key to gain access if the main house was locked.
If I ever get to come back to New Orleans, I would stay here.
