My partner and I thought a lot about where to stay in New Orleans and we finally decided on this very grand B&B. It looked great and when we got there we weren't disappointed. The architecture was fabulous. The room was big with a jacuzzi and loads of original features. The room we booked was over $150 per night. there are also late checkin fees of either $25 or $50 depending on what time you get there. We arrived at 19:45 and had to pay the $25 although i'm not sure why as the person who checked us in was in the office anyway.
At that price you would expect from a B&B a first class breakfast and a spotless room. The room was clean but the dust on the bed headboard was as old as the bed itself.
As for a first class breakfast if you wanted hot you had to order the night before (because actually they needed to get it out of the freezer). It was something called a Jimmy Dean I think with turned out to be something they microwaved and put on paper plates, also tea and coffee was in polystyrene cups, there were also pastries in packets, apples and bananas. Basically it was extremely poor. There is also lots of room for off street parking but you have to park on the road.
The host was helpful, arranging trips for us and giving directions and hints for places to eat.
