I'll have to echo all of the glowing comments by others on this board. Larry and Ron were perfect hosts: relaxed, friendly, amusing, and knowledgeable. The house is gorgeous, chock full of antique furniture and pictures, hardwood floors and towering ceilings. The room and bathroom were beautiful. I slept like a rock.
The breakfasts were delicious, and we looked forward to sitting and chatting with Larry and the other guests at breakfast. We loved Larry's dry sense of humor.
The location is good. Just off Canal, which I found to be the main route into the city. The Parkway Bakery is nearby, with their famous Po-Boys. And the bread pudding there is to die for. City Park is also close, and that's well worth a few hours of leisurely strolling.
That was my second time in New Orleans, the first for my wife. We had a fabulous anniversary 4 day weekend. We were lucky to have the French Quarter Festival going on while we were there, with outstanding food and music. I love the food in New Orleans, and couldn't get enough red beans and rice and jambalaya. If you get a chance, check out Cafe Reconcile, just north of the Garden District. It's helps out troubled youth and uses them as servers. The kids were quite friendly and the food was excellent. We are definitely returning to New Orleans and will certainly return to O'Malley House.
