We made a family vacation trip to New Orleans in March, and stayed at the 1870 Banana Courtyard B & B--we occupied most of the bedrooms in the main house. It could not have been better. Wonderful innkeepers and support staff, charming period decor, and an excellent Continental breakfast--which changed each day.
Many helpful suggestions were given to us; the convenient Quarter location made it easy to walk or cab to our destinations there. Its proximity to Marginy made that neighborhood an alternative to the Quarter for excellent meals and clubs.
We'd happily return to this B & B.
