A friend and I had a lovely stay at Magnolia Mansion for a week in October. Not only is it a beautiful place and area of NOLA, our host, Hollie, and her staff were more than helpful and full of great advice. We took the majority of said advice, and it was spot on.
The toilet handle broke and was fixed speedily. We had free reign to help ourselves to refreshments and a phone. It was clean and tidy. The restaurant and entertainment guide was great and regularly updated. Guests were encouraged to share their tips. Everything we could've needed was there, or on hand if asked. We needed an extra night due to Hurricane Sandy - shuffling was done and we were given a wonderful room. The WiFi connection excellent , and more useful than planned due to changes in travel plans. In essence, Hollie bent over backwards to make it a great stay. She even charged my phone when my cord died!
If I'm ever back in New Orleans this is where I'll stay. My friend would second that.
N.B. House rules are put forward in jest, but at the same time this is an austere building that a lot of work has gone into, and the experience for guests is meant to be a relaxing and opulent treat (for us) - quiet and romantic for a couple. If you want a party hotel full of randoms - stay in Bourbon Street (yuck) - with the exception of Fritzels Jazz Bar.
