The mansion is a beautiful bed and breakfast. The bedroom was sparsely furnished, but the bed was very comfortable. There was the bed, of course, a large bureau, one nightstand and one chair to sit in. We had an adequate closet to hang clothes in. The mini bar area served as my dresser with mirror. This was enclosed in a double door closet. This closet had a mini fridge and cabinet with no shelf which made it a great spot for my shoes. There was a huge mirror and plenty of electrical plugs, as well as a coffee maker .The large bureau had the big screen tv over it. It would have been nice to have a small table and perhaps two chairs. My husband was there for a conference and brought his computer. It was difficult for him to use the computer without a table. In all fairness, the only other bed and breakfast I have stayed in, did not have a "work area" as well.
The best part of the room was the glorious, large marble bathroom, with a big walk in shower.
Breakfast was continental. I did not venture into the breakfast room, my husband got me some ok muffins and coffee. They provide you with maybe two bottled waters, which was not replaced each day.
The locations did not seem like a long walk to the French Quarter early in the day, but walking back late at night, felt much further.
