“Great stay in our favorite city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Our two night stay at the Chimes was the perfect weekend get-away. Our room was cozy and the hospitality was second to none. This B&B is a safe 3-block walk to the St. Charles streetcar line and the quaint shops and restaurants on Magazine Street. The inn was clean and very well decorated. Kudos to Jill! We will definitely stay again on our next trip to wonderful New Orleans.

Spent 3 nights staying with Jill and Charles in their wonderful garden courtyard rooms. The bedroom was beautiful, the hosts generous and full of excellent advice about places to go and things to see. Loved the family-style breakfasts each morning (especially the almond croissants) and it felt like we were being welcomed into our own New Orleans home from home. Lots of lovely thoughtful touches (candy in the rooms, a drinks fridge in the courtyard, Jill's warm welcome and loan of a map and guidebook...) make this place very special. Highly recommended.

This was actually my second stay at Chimes and it was another lovely visit. After more than a decade of living in New Orleans, I moved abroad, but come back to visit every couple of years. It's a whirlwind of running around to meet people, so I prefer to stay in a hotel instead of bothering friends with my late comings and goings.

Chimes reminds me of my old apartment and it actually feels like staying in a friend's fabulous guestroom instead of a somewhat impersonal hotel experience. The location is great and the prices are even better.

I'll definitely be looking them up the next time that I visit NOLA.

We loved our room. It was clean and cozy. The location is good and there are a lot of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Plus public transport is available. The breakfast were excellent and included fresh baked breads, fresh fruit and cheeses. We highly recommend this place and looking forward to staying there again.

My daughter and I stayed three nights, I could not have wished for a better place. We stayed in the room inside the house, and we felt like we were right at home only with all the amenities that were included. The owner and staff were so helpful and pleasant. I am so glad that we stayed in this charming neighborhood and experience the city from this point of view. I recommend the Chimes without exception!

Room Tip: Any room would be a. Good choice, for my daughter and I the room next to the kitchen was perfect.

This is the perfect place to stay in NOLA if you want to experience the city like a local, but have a respite from the hustle and bustle. It's conveniently located; no need to a car, you can walk or take the streetcar just about anywhere. Jill makes really great suggestions, whether it's restaurants or tours. Seriously, it's almost like you're home when you're there, but you're still treated like a guest! I really love this place and will stay there anytime I go to the Big Easy.

Last week I stayed at The Chimes B&B in New Orleans. A co-worker stays there frequently and she recommended it. This was such a nice treat for someone used to staying in generic business hotels at higher prices! It was perfect for our quick trip. Each of the three rooms we occupied was decorated beautifully and was very comfortable. Jill is the perfect hostess and had great recommendations for dinner and drinks. I can't wait to go back with my husband or a group of friends! The courtyard looks like the perfect place to have a glass of wine at the end of the day. I'm looking forward to doing that on my next trip!
