We brought our 16 year old son to New Orleans to enjoy good food & explore the WW2 museum. Normally with our four kids we can't do the B&B thing, but since the younger ones were at camp, we wanted to experience a unique venue. Maison is a great fit, with a great host, Don, who is friendly & knowledgeable. The location is excellent, as it's a very short walk to the French Quarter, yet quiet. We didn't realize that Nola was within walking distance on our first night, and spent needless time & $ trying to find parking in the French Quarter...big hassle. There are several room options. We chose suite 5, which can accommodate up to 5 people since it has two divided bedrooms, one with a day bed, and a nice roomy living area suite with a couch, table with two chairs, sink, and flat screen TV. The bathroom is small with no counter space, but features a jet tub. The inner courtyard and garden is a delight, with a whimsical décor. We ate our first breakfast outside. The continental breakfast is simple, with a variety of breads, cereal and fruit, plus a featured homemade coffeecake each day. Saturday also had Italian quiche, and Sunday featured homemade biscuits & strawberry jam. There is a fancy coffeemaker with a variety of coffees which other guests enjoyed. Parking is limited, and you must reserve a permit in advance. We walked to the WW2 museum and enjoyed our strolls through the French quarter for that and dinner our 2nd night (GW Fins, which has fantastic seafood). The price was very reasonable, and we slept well. We would stay here again.
