When my fiancé and I were planning our first trip to New Orleans, we knew that we wanted to enjoy what the city has to offer but without being in the middle of all the mayhem. Let me tell you...staying at the Rathbone gave us that and more!
The Rathbone is a gem along the beautiful Esplanade and from the start of our trip, Pat and her staff were very attentive to our needs. The first night, there was a rough thunderstorm (could there be a more movielike setup for a place that is rumored to be haunted?!) but the staff, though they were not staying onsite, was helpful in letting us know what to do and who to call if the lights went out. Once we made it through that somewhat shaky night, the rest of the trip was smooth sailing.
The location of the place is perfect -- walkable to the French Quarter in one direction and to the Marigny in the other. We are New Yorkers so 10-15 minute treks are not a problem for us.
Pat is extremely knowledgable and gave us lots of recommendations for restaurants, bars, and other points of interest - PLUS the daily grits and greens breakfast put the hospitality over the top!
We are planning to make another trip to NOLA soon and the Rathbone will definitely be our go-to place from now on.
