“21st Century Charmer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

The 1822 Bougainvillea House is truly the best B&B travel experience I can remember. It has a New Orleans French Quarter location within walking distance of the renowned French Market and Bourbon Street too. Pared with its urban locale, there is a quiet ambiance, making for restful nights in this peaceful neighborhood.
One added amenity is the quality of the fine porcelain breakfast place settings and the hot and delicious servings. For this, the expression “bon-appetite” is elevated from an overused phrase into a mealtime benediction. I enjoyed breakfast immensely.
On the occasion of my stay, I found the staff’s dedication to perfection evidenced in the meticulous cleanliness of the rooms and bath. I spied all new appliances and dishwasher in the main house.
The facility boasts secure atrium parking which coexists in a serene inner park-like courtyard, providing 21st century, state-of-the-art security features. While cars and guests are safe, safe, safe - the flowers and bonsai garden flourish.
I heartily recommend this warm and inviting place to stay – its French Quarter proprietors are grand hosts.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

I stayed here for three nights for a girl’s weekend; it was a busy weekend and most of the French Quarter hotels were sold out (or available for more than $300/night). The location is excellent--in the quarter, but not on Bourbon. The facility is excellent, and includes parking in a courtyard, which is a very nice perk. However, the room we stayed in (the paddlewheeler suite) is dated and could use some new linens.

When we stayed, the rates were $200/night for 4 people, which was a pretty good deal. Since then, the rates have gone up to $300/night for 4 people.

Our hostess was very nice and helpful, and check in and check out were pretty easy.

We did not expect luxury, but rather a comfortable room in a convenient location. This is exactly what we received.
