This was our first time visiting New Orleans and we couldnt have asked for a more wonderful experience! Jill and Charles made us feel so comfortable and at home with their generous hospitality and our stomachs were always filled with delicious fresh foods! Chimes was the most beautif and original bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at!

The Chimes is an oasis of charm and seclusion in the perhaps the craziest, busiest city in the world. Beautiful place and beautiful people! Some bed and breakfast hotels are actually in someone's house which can be a little too cozy for me. These rooms are in an L shaped configuration around a small courtyard which allows for lots of...

Not only is the staff welcoming and knowledgeable but the accommodations are calm and clean. Being in the same industry, I know what to look for and you find it ALL here. The rooms are comfortable, the grounds are kept, the area is gorgeous, the staff is like family, the breakfast is JUST enough. I will not stay anywhere else... More

Our favorite place to stay in NOLA. Jill & Charles are great hosts. Conversations at breakfast are always entertaining.The coffee, juices, fruits, cheeses, breads & sweet breads are all top notch. The location is perfect... in the beautiful Garden District on a quiet street, walking distance to St, Charles Street street cars, shopping on Magazine Street and, of course, good... More

Finishing up my six night stay at The Chimes and highly recommend it. Jill and daughter Yasmine were outstanding hosts who make you feel welcome from the moment you ring their doorbell. Breakfasts are great, rooms spotless and full of character, info about happenings throughout New Orleans (and places to eat) detailed and accurate. A great place to stay... not... More

Your contributions at the breakfast table are interesting and informed. Your comment about the interruption in the street car line is true. There is a patch where you will be bussed. Sorry for the delays you incurred. Hopefully, the repairs will be finished in November. Thank you for staying we us again! More

This was our third stay at the Chimes. We stayed during our honeymoon, 5 year anniversary, and now the 10th. I'm sure there will be a future stay someday as well. Room A, off the garden, is our home away from home. We love the private entry and little touches that make it feel special. The bathroom is my favorite... More

We stayed for one night on a business trip. Jill could not have been more accommodating regarding our check in time or making sure that we had something to eat for breakfast even though we had to leave before 8am. Our room was spacious and comfortable. My favorite feature is the refrigerator stocked with beer and wine which is paid... More

We stayed 2 nights mid week as part of a graduation/family vacation. It was perfect for my husband, myself, and our 2 teenagers. We stayed in the carriage house. We had the upstairs bed/loft and the kids had a bed and a trundle bed on the ground floor. What I particularly liked was the private entrance to our room, the... More

We visited over Memorial weekend. I had never stayed in a B & B before, so didn't know what to expect. Jill and Charles couldn't have been nicer. It started with advice and phone numbers on getting there from the airport. Then being greeted by Jill, who gave us a tour, loaned us guide books and maps. Then every morning... More
