Excellent location for using St. Charles streetcar, or Magazine street bus a few blocks away. Fabulous front porch for coffee, reading the papers or a book, easy to do nothing and feel great about it. The staff, especially Miss Rome were all very friendly and helpful, this goes for the owner who we met a couple of times, warm and... More

We really enjoyed our recent stay here. The staff was outstanding! When we arrived at 7:30 at night there was a gentleman waiting for us to show us our room. The breakfast was fresh pastry, fruit, juice, coffee, yogurt etc. The rooms nice and the location is fabulous. Right off St Charles and street car and the Magazine bus. It's... More

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the B&B and it was a lovely place for a small ceremony. I'm writing this review to share a few things I wish I'd known in advance. 1. Book the penthouse room #2. It's the most modern of the 5 suites we had, has a shower stall and the best light for putting... More

We had two couples staying in two different parts of the mansion. Both rooms were lovely and just as advertised on the Mansions web site (Vampires Lair and Mardi Gras rooms) Breakfast was great they had fruit, bagels, yogurt, cold or hot cereal and pastry's. The Mansion is just one block from the trolley car line which made trips to... More

My husband and I returned from a trip to New Orleans and decided to stay in a Bed and Breakfast in the Garden District for a change (we have always stayed in the French Quarter in the past). I found the Magnolia Mansion when looking for B&Bs in the garden district. This looked like a lovely place (and was outwardly).... More

First off, let me say, my husband and I are ones who take reviews seriously on just about everything. Being that there weren't many options for Inns or other places to stay, we hoped the positive reviews would supercede the negative. The pics show what MM is on the outside a beautiful mansion with tall ceilings, rich colored rooms on... More

Our hostess, Rome, was so helpful and kind. She was full of good advice for enjoying New Orleans. Our room was a treat to stay in. Just around the corner from St. Charles Street car, so we were able to get around the city with ease!

We were a group of 8 and arrived in early February. We found the staff and owner to be very thoughtful and accommodating. The Mansion is in a perfect location to just about everything you would like to see and do in the city. Our beautiful rooms were well maintained and the perfect setting for those who wish to have...

The place is beautiful but unfortunately it is poorly run. They had a continental breakfast of cold cereals & packaged pastries. Even some low end chain motels will provide a hot breakfast included in their $60 something price. Here's the kicker-the milk was rotten both days! Imagine waking up to a crappy breakfast with spoiled milk each day. Stay somewhere... More

Wow, very surprised to read this review because I didn't get the impression that you were not pleased with the service here. When you pointed out that milk was spoiled I dumped it and the next day I put out more milk that was purchased that morning. The date marked on the milk was not expired so there was no... More
