My friends and I stayed at the Royal Street Courtyard before and after our cruise out of New Orleans and I can't say enough good things about our stay. David and Phillip are the most wonderful hosts and they make you feel so welcome. Their home is charming but the best thing is that the beds are so comfortable that... More

We are always on the lookout for local character and charm in a hotel, B&B or inn. We found it here. Phillip and David made us feel very welcome and offered a charming guest room at a good price. Phillip excels at New Orleans information and touring advice obviously relishing in this duty. There is even a test when he... More

We read the amazing reviews, and wholeheartedly agree with them. Phillip is a great host, very personable and knowledgable about places to eat and visit. The house itself is beautiful and it's in a great location, right near music-filled Frenchmen St, and walkable to French Quarter and the cute coffeeshops and restaurants in Marigny and Bywater, as well as many...

I stayed with Phillip and David and their home and contributions enriched my stay. The welcome began with our first phone conversation, continued with our first meeting (during which Phillip spent half an hour showing me a map of New Orleans and making recommendations of things to eat, see, and do), and ended with a hug goodby on the porch....

There is little to add to all of the excellent reviews of this place. It's everything travelers said it is. Phillip did indeed give us our very own map of the city, marked up with all of his spot-on suggestions. The fact that he hand-writes his suggestions for everyone who stays there (all nine rooms!) boggles the mind; we couldn't... More

As many reviewers have stipulated before: great place, great location, and, above all, great hosts. Phillip and David go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home in their very charming house. The location is perfect in a nice residential area with several nice breakfast/lunch places minutes away and plenty of (free) parking, whilst Frenchmen Street... More

We've been to New Orleans a bunch of times, and usually stayed at hotels in the Quarter. Staying here instead proved not just less expensive, but also more fun. If you want to feel as though you're surrounded by something other than just tourists, but still close to the places you'll want to visit, the location is perfect. It's no... More

A cute place, and the couple that owns it is incredibly nice and extremely helpful. We had Room 9, which was spacious and pretty. It had a detached bathroom, but they provided robes to wear for our forays down the hall. The hot tub in the courtyard was a real treat, especially after a long day and night out on... More

Where do I start with the praises? Anyone owning a B&B anywhere in the world NEEDS to stay here to learn how it’s done. We’ve stayed in more elegant places. We’ve stayed in places with sinfully lavish breakfasts. We’ve stayed in places in cities small and large as well as lovely places in the country. Almost all of them have... More
