We stayed at the B&W Courtyards this past October. This little B&B has the best of everything, the best location, the best rooms, the best breakfasts and the best hosts. We absolutely loved the location, just outside of the quarter in the Marigny section of New Orleans. It was an easy walk to the quarter, to transportation and to the best local music on Frenchman Street. As an added bonus there is a little restaurant called the Cake Cafe, right across the street. Make sure you stop in there for a cupcake, biscuits and coffee. We stayed in the Courtyard Room, which is advertised as having a very small bathroom. I was a little worried about this, but soon found that while small, it is certainly big enough and caused us no inconvenience. The room was beautiful. The bed was as comfy as our bed at home. I slept like a lamb there. We also loved the sound of the fountains outside the window, which were soothing and restful. The breakfasts were delicious and very filling. Sweet potato pancakes, bread pudding, homemade granola and heavenly Cafe du Monde coffee. We stayed at the B&B during the changeover from hosts Kevin and Rob to Dana and Tom. Both hosts were ready with information about restaurants and activities, and willing to accommodate our every need. On our last day we were able to check out, leave our bags in an empty room and go out shopping until our flight left at 6pm. Every day after breakfast we went back to our tidied room and found a freshly made bed, fresh ice and clean linens. The best part for me was feeling that I was home there, not in a hotel. Can't say enough. Definitely the best place to stay while vacationing in NOLA.
