What can I say that hasn't already been said in all the previous reviews. This is an excellent B & B and a good value. I was in New Orleans in April for a legal seminar, and travelled with both my wife and my mom. The B & B is a well-restored, three-story Victorian home in Mid-City New Orleans, just off of Canal Street. Although it is a "luxury" lodging, the atmosphere is casual and laid-back. The room was spacious, clean, and without any problems. Breakfasts were great and portions were good-sized. The owner and staff were professional, polite and a font of knowledge about the city. We called ahead about an hour before we arrived, and someone was there waiting for us on the front porch for check-in. Although I drove on some days, it is not necessary to drive since the B & B is just half a block away from the Canal Street streetcar line to the French Quarter. The place is also within walking distance of a couple of great Italian neighborhood restaurants, as well as an amazing Italian bakery and ice cream shop. I brought along a laptop with wireless internet for business and was able to use it with no problems. There was complimentary wine, coffee, tea, sodas, and snacks. This place is also a great value. Before booking a room, I researched many B & Bs in New Orleans. Not only was this one less expensive than most, it did not have any inconvenient reservation policies, such as minimum stays. They did not even require us to post a deposit in order to book the room. The only things I can think of that may annoy some people: Parking was a bit of a hassle, but that is true of almost any place in New Orleans. There are no "extra" amenities such as a pool or hot tub. Then again, you are in New Orleans, why would you want to waste time in a hot tub? Also, I am a runner and there was no exercise room. If the weather is bad, you are out of luck. However, the B & B is just a few minutes' jog from City Park, Esplanade Avenue, and Bayou St. John -- all of which are beautiful places to run. Overall, a wonderful place, a great value, and by far the best place I have stayed in New Orleans. I will be back.
