Mrs Hubbard's vision for an elegant and welcoming home for visitors to New Orleans is a dream come true. If you want somewhere special in the garden district, with the streetcar stopping outside the door, this is the place for you. It is a taste of old fashioned elegance with a warm and gracious welcome. We were lucky to have breakfast with Mr Hubbard himself the night we stayed and he gave us an insider's experience of life before during and after Katrina's devastation. This is a house where you want to spend more time and just sit on the porch and watch life roll by, maybe smoke a cigar, mull over the day in town and retire to the glamour and comfort of a regal bed.

The Hubbard Mansion was recommended by a friend who had already booked their stay for New Year's Eve. Our trip was a combination of sightseeing combined with my alterior motive of proposing to my partner. When booking my room, I revealed my proposal intention to Sheila, who took my reservation and offered to make our stay special.
We arrived via automobile (with the help of gps) to the Garden district turning in to the driveway of what we could have believed to be a hundred year old mansion. Sheila met us at the door and guided us to the dining room where other guests (including our friend Steve) were having their morning coffee.
The splendor and charm of the mansion washed over us as we sat for coffee before even unloading the car. My lady was overwhelmed at the furniture pieces almost immediately entering into lengthy conversation with Sheila about each piece. Sheila could describe each piece by period, design, as well as their own personal story about how they aquired each item and from whom. The aire was that of home and family, and we instantly felt that we were home and in the presence of something special.
More gasps follows as were were shown the room Sheila has reserved for us, knowing the special event that was to occur that evening. We once again marveled at the decor and taste of the room (Victoria).
We soon departed the mansion for the French Quarter and upon returning early that evening, had coffee on the front porch (after facing a clear and direct instruction from Don to not touch the glorious 50 year old stove belonging to his late wife and matriarch of the mansion although he was gracious to show us the workings of this amazing piece which had been used to prepare countless meals for the Hubbard family).
One of the guests had mentioned her search thru the kitchen for chocolate the previous evening, and like the gracious host he is, Don descretely departed only to return in an hour of so with fine chocolates for all.
We refreshed ourselves and departed for the evenings festivities on Jackson Square. In our absence, Sheila had taken the time to remove fresh red rose petals from the flowers and after preparing our king size bed, scattered the petals over the linens, the sight which greeted us when we returned to our room after my successful proposal to my lady.
Our itinerary required an early departure which further required more of the coffee south Louisiana is known for, which I prepared in the kitchen. Don appeared, most likely drawn by the aroma, and was pleased with my coffee making attempt. With the car loaded, we bid fairwell to Sheila, our wonderful hostess, and Don, the man who personifies the welcoming nature of New Orleans. Hugs were exchanged (not something we'd consider when staying at a hotel) and my lady, only half joking, whispered to Don "Goodbye Pappa" to which he responded "Call me when you get home".
The Hubbard Mansion has blazed a glorious bright light in our hearts. Thank you Sheila and Don.

My wife and I stayed here at the end of our tour of the African American Heritage Trail after having read about it in the NYT travel section. The place did not disappoint. Located on St. Charles about a 25 walk from the French Quarter, this gorgeous B&B made for a great stay in New Orleans. The rooms are elegant and clean. The common areas are magnificent and the dinner room is the perfect place to start your day. On top of it, the owner, Don Hubbard, is extremely charming and will entertain you with his stories and treat you to fruits from his citrus "grove" in the backyard. As usual, our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. However, we are happy knowing that our decision as to where to stay when we return has already been made. Fabulous.

Four of us converged on New Orleans for the French Quarter Festival. We wanted to stay in the Garden District, so we'd be close to the Quarter and near Audubon Park, but not in the middle of all the hubbub.
After a long day (and evening) of partying, we realized how much we were all looking forward to returning to our beautiful, clean, quiet and comfy rooms at the Hubbard, right on St. Charles Avenue.
The breakfast was good and the hosts (the Hubbard Family) couldn't have been more charming. We're hoping to do all again next year, maybe for Mardi Gras or Jazz Fest.
We all highly recommend it.

A group of girlfriends and I stayed at the lovely Hubbard Mansion (Carriage house) during the 4th of July weekend. If you looking for the quaintness and sophistication of New Orleans look no further.

Located in the Garden District, the Mansion sits on St. Charles Ave. The streetcar is conveniently located right outside and runs frequently for $1.25 per person. The streetcar drops you right on Canal Street one block off of the crazy Bourbon Street. If you opt to take a cab it's only $4 bucks per person, too.

Our hostess Rose Hubbard is a sweetheart, and very hospitable. We felt right at home.

We stayed in the carriage house which is situated right behind the Mansion. The carriage house has 2 bedrooms (1 Queen and 2 twins), sleeper sofa and 2 1/2 baths. Perfect accommodations for a group of girls. We had our own dining room and full kitchen. Since we were in the carriage house we didn't receive access to breakfast each morning which was disappointing.
We did however walk to the 24 hour Walgreen’s for breakfast foods and prepared breakfast daily in our kitchen.

Also, you're own your own as far as maid service, housekeeping and cleaning. Both bathrooms are well stacked with fresh towels. If needed a washer and dryer are available to use, too.

Over all no complaints ~ we had a great stay and would stay here again. The Carriage house is for a self-serving guest.
