This guest house is run with great generosity of spirit. More towels and toiletries than you could possibly need and an enormous range of juices, breads, cereals etc for breakfast. When we arrived for Mardi Gras our bed was festooned with Mardi Gras beads and and the definitive Mardi Gras guide was provided for every room. The bedroom and common sitting room were very comfortable. The rooms are not sound proof and you might have a problem if other guests were noisy but during our visit all the other guests were quiet and charming. The Marigny Bywater area is full of attractive cafes, restaurants and clubs and includes Frenchman Street which is particularly good for music and food.
I cannot think of a better place to stay in New Orleans and we will return but the arrangements were not entirely perfect. As requested we had advised the owners of our arrival time. In practice, we arrived on-time, in pouring rain, on a freezing cold day, with one small umbrella, to find no one to meet us and a note asking us to phone one of the owners. Our UK mobile didn't work and we had to wait for a passer-by who kindly agreed to call the number on our behalf. By the time the owner arrived we and our cases were soaked and frozen. If you decide to stay here make better arrangements to be met on arrival. We also arrived to find that the WiFi wasn't working which was a huge inconvenience. It later worked intermittently for our first 24 hours and then was fine.
