“Sully Mansion a Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Our 3 night stay at the Sully Mansion B and B was one of the best get-away weekends we've had. The B and B is perfectly located in the heart of the Garden District, in a magnificent Sully designed home from the late 1800s, and has one of the most beautiful porches peacefully protected by a magnificent spreading oak. Nancy and Guy, the detail oriented proprietors, served delicious breakfasts and had spot on recommendations for restaurants, bike rentals, transportation options, and Jazz Fest must see musicians. We loved the vibe from the get go, enjoying the other clientele, sitting in the lovely side garden, and starting our days of New Orleans adventures well fed and rested.

I can't say enough about Sully B&B in New Orleans - delightful, knowledgable hosts/owners Nancy and Guy; delicious breakfasts; lovely rooms; and the perfect location in the Garden District, two blocks from St. Charles St. and the streetcar for easy access to Downtown or Uptown. Two of us stayed in the Royal Suite for five nights in mid-April for the French Quarter Music Fest, a wonderful, free festival of all genres of music. We rode the streetcar to the end of the line at Canal and Bourbon streets for easy access to the heart of all the festivities. We also loved walking all around the Garden District with its beautiful, stately old homes; dining at Commander's Palace, a short walk from the Sully; and walking along Magazine Street with its eclectic shops and wonderful little restaurants.

Our first trip to NOLA couldn't have been more memorable. We spent 4 nights in Nancy, Guy and dog Gracie's lovely Garden District B&B. We stayed in the spacious suite downstairs and even though it is next to the front door, it was quiet and comfy! Nancy and Guy are wonderful hosts, knowledgeable in all areas of visitation to NOLA & the Garden District; with tips on sites, tours and great restaurant recommendations (both in Garden District and French Quarter). We parked our car and either walked or took the St. Charles St. trolley everywhere (only 1 block away from B&B).
Special features included the honor bar for beer, wine, sodas; large ice machine for a B&B and jug of filtered water in the room daily. The breakfasts were delicious, with many extra baked goods, yogurt parfaits, fresh fruit and breads available to accompany the main dish.
Staying at the peaceful Sully Mansion is the best alternative to hotels in the hectic downtown area/ French Quarter. We plan to return to this wonderful home the next time we explore NOLA!! P. S. Miss you Gracie!! Dave and Janiece

Room Tip: Downstairs suite was quiet.

We stayed two days at the great B&B of Nancy and Guy in the Garden District of New-Orleans. We received a warm hospitality and the place is perfectly furnished and maintained. It's an old house with a soul, lovingly and warmly opened by their owners to their guests. Breakfast, with home made cakes and pastries, is simply fabulous, with plenty of friendly encounters and discussions around the table! The Sully Mansion is close to the heart of the city, which can be easily reached on the historic tramway and, at the end of the day, the comfortably porch and patio offer a heaven of peace to comfortably relax, chat, read and sip a glass of wine!

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!

Room Tip: The Royal Room is perfect for two friends traveling together for a fun week-end.

We are so glad the ladies enjoyed their stay and agree we are in the perfect location as a base for exploring the city. We are both from the east and have lived in New Orleans for eight years and call it our home and do our best to offer the best hospitality we can. We used to offer cookies in the afternoon but found guests tend to enjoy all our great restaurants all day long and they were not eating them, the price you pay for being such a food rich city!!!

We had a lovely time again at Sully Mansion. Our room was very comfortable. The front porch is divine and great place to watch things in the Garden District. Breakfast was most enjoyable with a great selection of tasty food and nice conversation with the Innkeepers and other guests.

This was my second stay with Nancy and Guy at the Sullly. It could not be in a more perfect location, as the St. Charles streetcar is a block away for going Uptown, to Audubon Park, or downtown to the French Quarter and Esplanade. At the Sully you are surrounded with beauty, in the restored old mansion itself, on the broad porch gazing at a magnificent huge old Live Oak, walking around the Garden District and enjoying gorgeous old historic mansions. Nancy and Guy are very gracious, knowledgeable, fun hosts, and they make great breakfasts.
