The location and price was great....but Hugh and Mary are phenomenal. The home was warm and welcoming with great flair and quite eclectic. I only had 48 hours in New Orleans and Hugh and Mary set an itinerary for me that gave us the true feel of the city while focusing on our interests. Highly recommended.

We were really looking forward to staying at The Banana Courtyard because of their website and the hugh amount of information that was given by Mary and Hugh. This was going to be a different experience than staying at a typical hotel. It was like staying at your grandparents' or great grandparents' house. There was a lot to take in... More

We stayed for five nights in this b&b and it was a great experience. Mary and Hugh were very accommodating (and Hugh even waited for us to arrive at 3am!) and their recommendations were a helpful local perspective to the French Quarter. We stayed in the Cannonball room which is located on the ground floor, the antiquarian bed is comfortable... More

We stayed at the Banana Courtyard in May 2014. A one word description of the property would have to be eclectic. Hugh and Mary were wonderful hosts and very happy to help out with info on where to go and what to do. You'll be within walking distance of the French Quarter and there is also a bus stop across...

We found the Banana Courtyard on the internet and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Hugh and Mary add to the experience of staying in an 1800's former bordello. We were there for a week and all the others staying here were our family for the week! A fun time in the French Quarter!!!

We stayed for six nights at The Banana Courtyard B&B (31th of May to 7th of June). It is a wonderful place! It's like coming home. The hosts, Mary and Hugh, are a lovely couple and they their suggestions on activities really were spot on and helped us to have a even more wonderful stay in NOLA on our honeymoon.... More

For our first visit to NOLA, we wanted as much of an authentic experience as possible. We generally love the homey feel of staying in bed and breakfasts when we travel, and we researched A LOT before landing on the Banana Courtyard. Upon arrival, Mary was standing outside waiting to welcome us (even though it was well after 10pm). She... More

The B&B looks like it dates back to the late 1800's and is filled with treasures the owners Mary and Hugh have collected over the years. Okay, not as far back as the 1800's but close. The rooms are comfortable and the prices are great. It's located on the edge of the famous French Quarter's and is within walking distance... More

We had a wonderful stay at Banana Courtyard whilst in New Orleans. Mary and Hugh are great hosts and we particularly want to mention Gerald, a fabulous member of their team and a top bloke! Would definitely return for a stay and recommend to our friends. Not your usual place perhaps but that's part of what made it so good... More

My husband and I have been to Banana Courtyard a number of times, and each time it only gets better and better. It feels like a home instead of a cookie cutter. It is different each time we go. The owners are the best they love their city and care about their guests. All the staff puts their heart into... More
