I was misled by booking.com into believing this B&B was in the Garden District. It's not. It's a block east of the Garden District and the neighborhood is terrible and looked unsafe. The building across the street appeared to be condemned. I never actually saw the area after dark because we didn't stay long enough. The room was also not... More

The website is VERY deceiving with their pictures. It's not in a very good part of town, they don't have secure parking and you might have to park down the street in a shady area. The inn keeper is rude and doesn't really care if you are comfortable or not. I kept complaining to her because their "high speed" internet... More

The Mansion was beautiful. We got room #1 as reserved. Rome the hostess with the mostess...was wonderful. We loved the location, and Rome gave us great info on where to go and what to eat. The Mansion is putting in a nice restaurant, and we were told they would have a Steak House theme. We have to go back to... More

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!
