As so many other's have said, this is a wonderful B&B in a perfect location! We loved being able to easily get to the French Quarters (you can walk there in around 30 min. or ride the street car found right around the corner) but we found we especially loved the restaurants and relaxed "vibe" in the Garden District (Magazine St.) right in the neighborhood. Nancy and Guy knows their restaurants & food and headed us toward several amazing places (thanks!!!). The breakfast each day greeted us with some wonderful homemade pastries & goodies which gave us energy for hours of walking. For those of you looking for the "southern hospitality"; although they are wonderful host and hostess, Nancy has a little more of a "east coast hospitality" charm instead. Her upfront manner is what I think people have felt in old reviews but she is quite nice and helpful. The only thing I missed...cookies in the afternoon after hours of walking. Hey, what can I say, homemade cookies at a B&B are my favorite! Would we stay here again? In a heart beat!
