I was looking for a unique place to stay while visiting New Orleans for a long weekend. I'm not a traditional hotel person and the reviews of the hostels were horrible. This is the one place I found that was still affordable in the french quarter and clean. Unfortunately I was not able to meet Mary or Hugh, but they did much to make sure we were taken care of while visiting. In New Orleans B & B's are not allowed to serve prepared breakfast, so they do there best to get you fed with fruit, pastries, coffee, tea and juice. I also like the outside table and chairs in small corners, porch swing, and the hammock in the courtyard under the banana tree.
