My recent stay at Audubon Cottages was very good! It is truly a hidden treasure near the Bourbon St. area and when you stay there, you do not feel like you are in New Orleans, or atleast I didn't. It was a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of Bourbon, which is only a few steps away. The private pool at the cottages is ideal for anyone who would like a bit more privacy, although I didn't get to enjoy the pool since it was cool while I was there. There is always a lovely courtyard that is ideal for socializing and relaxing or sitting outside on a lovely day to do some work if you are there on business.
When checking in, you have to go down the street. It's not at the cottages themselves, which was a bit confusing for those who are arriving for the first time, but it all worked out.
The decor was beautiful in our cottage and felt very welcoming and cozy. The linens were very comfortable and I felt like I was sleeping at home in my own bed rather than a hotel bed.
Everything overall was wonderful and I would absolutely return! The only 2 things I was not happy about were: 1. When we checked in it was going to be a bit before they got our bags to our room, so we told them we would go walk around for about 30 minutes or so. When we got to our cottage, we did not have to use our key to get in because the door was unlocked. We were not happy about this because our computers and other personal belongings were in there. 2. Each morning they brought their complimentary breakfast to our room. It was a nice selection and nice to have it brought to us. The day we were checking out, we expected breakfast delivered once again. We had called the night before to tell them what time we wanted it delivered to our room (like we were instructed to do) and that morning, our breakfast never showed up. We had to call to inquire about it and they said our butler was not there so we would have to come down to the main area for breakfast. This was a bit annoying since it was the day we were leaving and out of all days it was going to be more convenient to have our breakfast delivered rather than having to walk down to the office area to get it ourselves. But again, it worked out and the area where the breakfast was had everything set out very nicely!
But other than those 2 things, everything was wonderful and I look forward to returning to Audubon Cottages in the near future!
