My spouse and I have frequented the O'Malley House on at least four occasions and have done so because once one has found the BEST NOLA has to offer in terms of hospitality, one does not waiver. Larry Watts (proprietor) is by far one of the most gracious hosts. Over the past four years, Larry has made arrangements for us to have dinner, swamp tours, sent us to the best clubs on Frenchman's Street, made arrangements for us to get picked up after a few too many French 75s, and even recommended a great tailor who could fix my husband's suit on a Sunday. Often a B&B throws out some cold fruit and over cooked bacon and justifies this as the "B" of B&B...NOT at the 1896 O'Malley House. My husband and I have never even had breakfast outside of the O'Malley House in NOLA because the food is absolutely exquisite. We pride ourselves on eating only the best NOLA has to offer and the breakfast at 1896 is well worth the gastronomical tour. One of the greatest benefits of staying at 1896 is that the B&B is right on the trolley line but far enough away from the downtown party scene to suit those interested in the night life but also interested in a quiet sleep after last call. Another great geographical feature is that the B&B is literally right around the corner from Angelo Brocato's Italian bakery - DO NOT MISS! We usually go in February or March to run the Mardi Gras Marathon (usually the week after the actual Mardi Gras) and guess what??? The 1896 O'Malley House is just a few blocks from the finish line in City Park. Could things get any better? I guess I will just have to keep going back to the O'Malley House to see.
