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

My wife and I stayed at the Rathbone Mansion during Mardi Gras. It was the perfect distance away from the French Quarter to walk or a take cab and still get a quite nights sleep. If you can keep the ghosts quite that is! Yes this place is haunted! Search the web for ghostly details. Given the age of the... More

Booked in July 2014 for our anniversary. We got in late at night, so we had a note left for us by Pat and directions of how to get our keys and room. We were upgraded to the Saints Rooms. We loved it! Yes, the building is old, dust all around the corridors, balcony dilapidated but bubby still went outside... More

Miss Pat and her staff were very friendly and helpful. They had many good recommendations for us from food to sightseeing. We parked our car when we arrived and didn't move it till me left. We either walked or took a trolley to what ever we wanted. The room was fine and clean. The only complaint is the bed was... More
