We recently stayed here on our first visit to New Orleans. The room was wonderful, the pool even better and the staff was the best. Pat, Tina and Tanya couldn't have been more awesome. Loved it! The location was very convenient as everything was in walking distance.

Potentially haunted mansion, a few blocks from Bourbon St, but far enough you can sleep at night? - Yes, please! Oh? Pool and heated hot tub? He'yeah! The outdoor, heated tub was amazing and made it very hard to drag my butt to the French Quarter every evening (which is only about 10 minutes away). Keep in mind the pool... More

What can I say about New Orleans... my first time and I am definitely going back. But, this review is not about the Jazz music in the background, the lines at Café Du Monde, nor the awesome food, it's about the place my wife and I stayed. Rathbone Mansions... just the name makes my hair stand up thinking that is... More

The Rathbone mansion sits on the edge of the French Quarter and just a few streets into the Treme, know to local jazz musicians as home. Surrounded by 1800"s mansions and darling New Orleans shot guns this is a great affordable place to stay. The support crew is great but I would recommend a room on the second floor. We... More

First off, the characters who manage this place are simply awesome people. Very kind and generous and truly convey the NOLA spirit. My single girl friend and I (also single girl) stayed at the Rathbone Mansions for Mardi Gras - and from the first moment we walked in we found they had upgraded our room to the patio balcony, and...

The Rathbone mansion was one of the best places I have ever stayed at. Pat & her crew are top notch, I loved being with them all they make you feel very welcomed like you've known them forever. Pat who runs the place makes sure you're well taken care of she goes above & beyond what I ever expected. The... More

The people running this place were very nice during our stay and it is in reasonable walking distance to the Quarter, those are about the only positives. Their website says "We offer complimentary parking to our guests on a first come first serve basis." But nowhere does it mention the need to book parking. I thought it would be on... More

Rathbone Mansions are the best place to stay while in New Orleans. Close to the French Quarter so you can walk it or grab a cab at a reasonable price. Quaint rooms, very clean and well maintained. Balconies so you can watch the people in costumes heading to parades. Ms Tanya makes the best breakfast in the morning! The staff... More
