The staff were very helpful and hospitable, they really took pride in looking after their guests. The rooms were both spacious and luxurious, and it is only a 10 minute walk from the French quarter. I would definitely recommend staying here.

I was so happy with my stay at the Rathbone. Me and best friend travel quite often, we call them adventures instead of vacations. It started with the check in process, was the first step and like a treasure hut, behind each lock box or door a bigger and better surprise. Yes the stair way up to our suite was... More

I was pleasantly surprised about the Rathbone Mansion. The ladies that run the place are super cool and very helpful. The location is in walking distance to the French Quarter (Bourbon, Royal), Frenchman, Canal Street... so much fun stuff close by.. 15 minutes walk to everywhere. I liked the fact that you could actually get a good nights sleep because... More

The staff is knowledgeable and fun. The quarters feel like the vacation home you've always wanted. Everything is within walking distance, but far enough from Bourbon Street that you will still get a god night's sleep (especially with how comfy the beds are!).

We got a small room, at a great price. Stayed 3 nights. Was surprised how quiet it was to sleep. The pool & hot tub was awesome! The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was good. Parking is $$extra in the locked gate, so I tried parking on the street...my car was fine.

The lovely ladies of Rathbone Mansions get a five star rating. We were here in early June, and we were pleasantly surprised. I only say surprised, because of some of the previous reviews. I completely agree with the previous reviewer who said if you want a Hilton, stay at a Hilton. It's an old house. Our room was nice and... More

I gave 5 to this B&B for their great customer service, specifically Pat who made us feel home. The shower in our room had some problems and Pat moved us to a better room. She let us keep keys from both rooms and move whenever we were ready. When we left, I forgot the package with some art pieces that... More

Decent location in french quarter and close to Frenchman street- within walking distance or short cab ride. Room was pretty small, musty and old. Bed in our room was also pretty bad. Pool and hot tub on site were nice. Did not take advantage much of breakfast which consisted of bagels, toast, or cereal. Staff was friendly but not overly... More

The owners were fantastic, so welcoming and helpful. The room was gorgeous and clean. The location was great, a little walk from the noise and crowds. My wife and I can't wait to go back to this B&B! Also breakfast was really good and the wi-fi was good!
