The owner and the staff bent over backwards to properly accommodate us . We were treated like family and I will definitely return to this majestic B&B. I can't thank them enough for making our trip so amazing!

We spent two nights in this fantastic place. Our bedroom was amazing, clean, comfortable and full of beautiful pieces of furniture and the public rooms were even more incredible. It was as if we'd been transported back in time!! The breakfast was complimentary and more than we could have asked for or expected. Our only gripe, and it was just... More

I found Magnola Mansion on the internet, although I only live about 30 minutes away. I have been searching for somewhere to get ready the day of my wedding and to book hours for photography. The mansion is absolutely beautiful on the inside and out but when I started the process of booking two nights stay there and a few... More

The list of atrocities that occurred at the Magnolia Mansion are so numerous I won't have enough space to list even a fraction. I should have heeded the advice of the other past reviews, but thought from the pictures it would still be a great place to hold a bridal shower. WRONG. The rude, arrogant middle-eastern who owns the house... More

The current manager/owner of Magnolia Mansion has very little knowledge of how to run a hotel or bed and breakfast. He blames Book It or BedandBreakfast.com for overbooking his hotel when in actuality he is either trying to get a higher rate or not blocking out rooms on those websites for sale. Either way, my wife and I arrived in... More

Decided to get married here... Nightmare from the time we got there until we left. The room we booked was not available anymore. The man that married us was in jeans and a t-shirt. When I asked about what happened here, I was told y'all are young and these things won't be as important as you get older.... Hmm... Customer... More

We booked a night at the 'mansion' through Expedia before our cruise. The price was high (nearly $300), but we justified spending the amount because it was close to Valentine's Day, and the rooms looked beautiful. We were pleased when we arrived early that the house attendant let us leave our bags and go eat lunch while we waited on... More

I do have a few nitpicks about Magnolia Mansion, which are the reason I'm writing a four-star instead of five-star review. But first, the good. The mansion is absolutely gorgeous. I'm so glad we chose to stay here instead of a big, impersonal, same-in-every-town hotel. It is quintessential New Orleans Garden District. We stayed in the Mardi Gras room which... More

The mansion is gorgeous! Fantastic location being close to the Garden District walking tours,bars, restaurants, St. Charles trolley line (you are 8 min away from French Quarter on trolley), safe and free street parking, Magazine st. The staff make you feel like family and the mansion brings you back in time (built in early 1800s) with gorgeous rooms and decor.... More

My wife and I fell in love with Magnolia Mansion the moment we set foot on the property-- and we LOVED the vampire room we stayed in for six nights. Everything about the house is beautiful and unique, so much so that you may find it difficult to believe that you're not only being allowed to stay there, but welcomed... More
