We knew that we wanted to stay outside of New Orleans, but remain close enough to Frenchmen Street in one direction and Uptown in the other so as to take advantage of the music scene in both areas. The Maison Perrier offered both as it is just three blocks from the St Charles Streetcar line, and the street car will either take you to the French Quarter or to Uptown.
Tom and Patricia are the perfect hosts. Tom spent time to help us map out music venues and find who was playing during the four days we would stay. Patricia steered us to the best spots for a po' boy and other eating establishments. What more would a visitor to New Orleans need?
The breakfast is great. You will get enough to set your morning off right. Tom and Patricia also offer an 'honor bar' complete with beer, wine and soft drinks, but on Friday and Saturday evenings. they serve up a happy hour. That offers guests a chance to meet.
Our room was clean, quiet, and very comfortable. The room was furnished with a CD player/radio and cable television - but we did not have the time to use either as there were too many things to do outside of the house.
Using the Maison Perrier website to book was convenient, and Tom called to confirm the reservation, and a few days before arrival he called again to confirm the arrival time to ensure everything would be ready. Also, because we left late in the afternoon, after checkout, Tom and Patricia allowed us to leave our bags so we could go out and enjoy our last day, then return to change and freshen up (it is a bit warm in New Orleans in July) before taking a cab to the airport.
This is the first place we will look to book when we return to New Orleans.
