It's always a delight to stay at Maison DuBois! It's a perfect location, convenient to all the action in the French Quarter yet a quiet haven when it's time to relax. The beautiful pool in the courtyard makes the perfect escape in the hot summer months and the spa is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine after an early dinner. The hosts are locals that know every square inch of their city. Ask Tom for a history lesson while enjoying your breakfast...fascinating! The rooms are large and elegant, beautifully decorated in classic New Orleans style. Choose the Orleans or the Esplanade rooms (pronounced "esplanAID in New Orleans) to gain your own access to the back veranda overlooking the courtyard. Enjoy your morning coffee then take the spiral stairs down to the saltwater pool...heavenly! The Plantation is the prettiest with a fabulous sleigh bed and huge gilded mirror over the fireplace. It also has the biggest bathroom. The Vieux Carre is the front room and is almost like having your own apartment with a large living area and quick access to the kitchen. The Dauphine Marigny is perfect for families with it's main entrance and two separate bedrooms with a shared bathroom between. One room has twin beds with lots of space in the center and the other room has a gorgeous tall four poster bed. All rooms have televisions, ironing boards, irons, blow dryers and plenty of towels. We have visited when the house is full but rarely see the other guests except at breakfast. It seems everyone is out exploring or keeps different hours...makes it feel like the house is all yours! I recommend this B&B to any of my friends planning a visit to New Orleans. It doesn't get any better than Maison DuBois.
