The Chimes was beyond our greatest expectations. Jill and Charles Abbyad and their son's spirited interaction and genuine interest in us and our experience in New Orleans made us feel engaged, grounded and at home. Their restful and immaculate place is decorated in fascinating, whimsical local historical artwork... a treat to the eye. Breakfast is a delicious selection of fresh fruits, breads and pastries from a local bakery. Your day begins with lively morning discussions not only about where to go and what to do (all unique suggestions) but about the culture and history of the diverse "little Europe" of New Orleans. It is no wonder a prominent news organization chose this place as their headquarters during and after Katrina! This is simply a "must stay" if you are going to New Orleans. Oh, and they recommend a wonderful cab driver to bring you from the airport...so many special touches.
