“You MUST stay here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2008

I've been to New Orleans many times -- and this is the best place I've ever stayed. We actually rented the entire place for a bachelorette party with 15 girls. First of all, the house is beautiful. Every piece of furniture, art, and paint color was perfectly selected. And, Linda is an amazing host. She could give Martha Stewart a run for her money..... She knew everything we asked, the food was FANTASTIC (ask her to serve the Creme Brule French Toast and Cheese Grits), and went out of her way to make the weekend a success. She even found us champagne when we were stressed about finding some -- and she picked it up. I promise - you will love staying here.

  • Liked — Our host, Linda, the house, and the food.
  • Disliked — I didn't get to stay long enough!! :)

Twice I have stayed at the Terrell House in New Orleans on Magazine Street and twice I have had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere, the food, the people are delightful. Linda O'Brien is gracious and helpful. I have stayed many places in NOLA and this is the best.
Shopping on Magazine is GREAT!! Go to Le Sucre for the most gorgeous pastries in the world.

We had a wonderful weekend in New Orleans while staying at the Terrell House. Linda was a wonderful host and the breakfasts were delicious. The main house was beautifully decorated. We stayed in the carriage house, and the room was great. The bed was very comfortable and the room was stocked with water, soda and coffee. The location is a little far away from the French Quarter to walk, but you can walk to the streetcar (3-4blocks) and take that there. There are also several places to eat within 10-15 min walking distance.

This is my 2nd trip to N.O. I booked a B&B and a hotel for work due to limited availability during the week of Mar 25th. I found the Terrell Guest House online, read some good reviews, checked out some nice pictures, & made my reservation by phone. This is in the Garden District, ~3mi from downtown & French Quarters.

Getting there was not too easy at night (signs are missing). Linda, her husband (owners), and their little dog are very nice. Because I was arriving late & restaurants are closed at that time, Linda offer to make me a sandwich.

The house & courtyard look very quaint. The parlor was absolutely gorgeous! There are two sections: carriage house (Yellow rm, $144/nt, wireless-signal low) & main house (Gold rm, $185/nt, wireless-excellent, Linda upgraded me for free!). The rooms are nice with antique furnitures, cable TV, AC, ceiling fan, and water/sodas. Linda made delicious breakfast (Southern cooking). She also recommended a great crawfish place (Johnny & ??). It is fairly quiet neighborhood and there are restaurants a couple blocks away.

I had a WONDERFUL time staying at the Terrell House. The 2 things that I would recommend for people before arriving are -

1. Have the room aired out (room can be a little stuffy)
2. Bring shampoo/conditioner

My husband & I just returned from a very short stay at the Terrell House. After a year long renovation, Linda, the owner has made this house into a very special place. It is spacious but cozy, formal but comfortable we could not have been happier. With her recommendations we saw New Orleans in a whole different light. She could not have been more accommodating & her breakfast was so delicious. We are already planning our return visit!

We enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon there. The service was excellent, our room was beautiful, and the on-site manager/concierge was a native. Breakfasts were a treat with silver service and complimentary sherry in the afternoons was also fun. We ate at Commander's Palace (phenomenal) and enjoyed a burlesque show at Marie LaVeau's on the manager's recommendation. All in all, perfect memories.
