We booked six nights at the Chimes given its very outstanding reviews. Its location is excellent, in a beautiful part of the Garden DIstrict and it is midway between St. Charles Avenue and the lively Magazine street.
We were however disappointed with other aspects of our stay. Our accomodations were small and not particularly charming. Our room tended to be on the stuffy side with an unpredictable ventilation system. The breakfasts did not compare with other B&B's where we have stayed. There were no hot servings on any of the days.
Jill, the co-owner was very welcoming and helpful in the early part of our stay and we loved New Orleans. We would however not stay again at the Chimes in the future. Other visitors may have loved it but it was not our cup of tea!
