As many others have said the HOTRS is a great b&b. Kevin and Wendy are so welcoming and helpful (esp on where to eat and suggested music venues), the fruity breakfast is a great start to the day, and our room was lovely (and very comfortable bed). The bit though that we hadn't expected was the location being so good. Let's face it N.O. is noisy - great, great fun but boy is it noisy. The 5-minute (free) ferry ride across to Algiers Point takes you out of the hustle and bustle and into a quiet and lovely nighbourhood. We used that ferry at least twice a day for 5 days and got to really enjoy that as a serene start to each day's adventure, and a pretty (looking back at the city and the bridge) end to each evening. The best recommendation is that if we ever get the chance to go back to N'Awlins this is where we'd stay.
Oh and the hidden gem of the city is the sculpture garden at the Museum Of Art. Just fabulous. Do not miss it.
