“Best French quarter getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We have been fans of the Audubon Cottages for a decade. We have seen the good times and the struggles. We were so delighted to hear of the renovation and wanted to see it. We were so pleased with all they have done... It totally exceeded our expectations. Our cottage was beautiful and we were able to view the other cottages, as well, and all were fabulous!! The pool has been upgraded, the landscaping gorgeous, and the service delightful. Our French quarter butler, Roderick Bernel and his staff were so attentive and all our needs were met with such professionalism and warmth. All things considered, we would not change anything about our stay and we look forward to the next time spent at the place we feel stands alone as a French quarter destination! Highly recommend it!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful but 2 and 4 were special

It's often the little things that make a stay memorable.The new ownership tastefully and completely renovated the cottages. More impressive is that they hired a first class staff that went out their way to make sure we were completely comfortable. I mentioned the pillows were a bit too firm and that night both rooms had all new pillows. I've been staying here for years in the same suite and honestly the place had great bones but was getting run down. I expected a lot more this time because the rates doubled. I'm happy to say the place exceeded expectations and we'll be back.

We have stayed at these cottages for years and loved them. The renovation has only made these cottages more charming. The decor and furniture stayed true to it's original looks with well placed amenities such as a double drawer refrigerator placed within a stately furniture piece. I love the feel when you walk through the gates and see the beautiful garden and pool area. Then you walk into your own courtyard. You wake up in the morning to look out to an incredible breakfast placed in your courtyard. The staff is absolutely wonderful and the manager is hands on and a joy to be around. The Audubon cottages is a great place to stay with family, friends or a romantic get away.
Thank you Roderick for such great service. We'll be back soon!

I stayed with my family in the same cottage (#1) that we stayed in last year. The new decor, bathrooms, pool renovation, and landscaping are beautiful. It now feels like a 5 star experience. We were looked after very well by Roderick (our butler) and breakfast was delivered to our courtyard each morning. The noisy pump next to the pool has been removed. I've always liked staying at the Cottages, but now it feels more special and worth the price. Everything that needed more attention and improvement has been addressed. The only unusual thing was the fake flowers in our room. If they can't be fresh, I'd rather have none at all. We LOVED having the freezer drawer in our room - great for keeping frozen margaritas!

Room Tip: Cottage #1 was Audobon's own cottage, with his studio across the courtyard.

It's worth paying a little to have a secluded, beautifully maintained oasis in the French Quarter. A lovely saltwater pool, friendly staff, the feeling that you're a million miles from the bustle of the Quarter. The cottages themselves are wonderfully refurbished, and have complimentary coffee, breakfast and wifi. Hard to think of a more relaxing, comfortable, luxurious, secluded and well-located spot than this. Can't say enough good things.
