If you truly want to experience Nola with authenticity stay the the B&W Courtyard!! My husband and I have stayed all over town and this property is a hidden gem! We were there again for the 4th of july as repeat guests and we love this property as it gives you the real deal in nola!The inn speaks for itself "the best''!!! You meander through courtyards with waterfalls in a private sanctuary that welcomes the senses! We stay on the second floor in the main house as it provides the best quiet room in the inn!! The inn keepers Rob and Kevin are awesome hosts and will make your trip worthwhile with there great tips on the city and awesome personalities! One more tip, up the street from the inn heading toward frenchmen street is the "friendly bar". Make sure and stop in for a drink or 2! Great bartender and patrons there! Enjoy!
