My wife and I had the chance for a weekend getaway without the kids and were looking for a romantic place to visit and stay. It was my wife's first trip to NOLA, and I wanted it to be special. After scouring Trip Advisor and seeing the outrageous parking rates downtown, began to look further out, and stumbled across some bed and breakfasts. We had never done that before, but after reading the reviews we decided to give it a shot.
After a great deal of research, we settled on the Sully Mansion, and could not have been happier with our stay. We will definitely look into bed and breakfasts in other cities after our experience here. Guy, Nancy and their dog Gracie were excellent hosts for us - available without being intrusive. The food was wonderful, and the location was fantastic.
The Garden District is often overlooked, but a wonderful part of New Orleans. The restaurants and shops on Magazine Street are perfect for strolling, window shopping and eating. Do not miss Joey K's or Sucré.
There is plenty of parking, and you can either walk, or take the street car during the rest of your stay. It's just a few mi used downtown and into the Quarter. This is a beautiful place, so if you're looking for a romantic getaway, or just a leisurely stay, try the Sully Mansion! We will happily return to stay again in the future.
