This quirky hotel is right on the edge of the French Quarter. Our room (9) was very small, but comfortable and with leopard carpet! Our group took up about half of the hotel and each couple's room was unique. (All that we saw were a little larger than ours.) The shared courtyard is great. We utilized it as a meeting... More

This place is very cute and is a good value. The front desk is very helpful and friendly and it was nice to grab a bite before heading out. It is a bit of a walk into the Quarter but worth it. A hop on hop off bus stop is near by so we used it often. I wonder stay... More

What can I say? I was most impressed by this place. The rooms were clean, the reception area was very historic, and the staff was very friendly and made sure that my stay was comfortable. I will definitively return, and recommend it highly.

The rooms were filthy with termites in furniture no house keeping was done other than to put in new towels that were also dirty looking. The building requires major work with a bad odor. The last night we insisted on being moved after a huge cockroach like beetle ran up the wall. They did transfer us to their other property... More

We enjoyed our stay at this quaint, quirky, historic inn. It was exactly as we thought it would be. The front desk girls were very nice, friendly, and helpful. The outside breakfast area was very charming and well kept. The breakfast was very simple, but fine. Was within walking distant to shops, restaurants, french quarter, bourbon street, altho we did...

The New Orleans Guest House has always been a cute example of Capotesque southern charm. However now that the new owner has become entrenched what was once charm seems like neglect. What was once shabby chic just shabby (a lobby that smells like cat pee!?!?). For those who never visited when Ray an Alvin owned the B&B the the experience... More

Stayed one night, rooms were slightly dirty but the location made up for it, being a 5 minute walk from bourbon st. Staff was really friendly and the outdoor patio was a really nice touch. Would definitely come back if even in New Orleans again.

Went 10 years ago - this place is located other side of street from French Quarter, therefore less pricey (at that time). Parking has high gates, locked at night, to secure car. We rented 2 rooms on 2nd floor - plush carpet, vintage furniture, sinks, etc., but everything worked. Quaint outdoor porch where they served excellent breakfast (paper doilies, strawberries... More
