My husband and I were very happy with our stay at 1896 O'Malley House. When we first arrived we were welcomed from newly arriving guests and Brent. He was a wonderful host, gave us lots of information about the city and neighborhood and made sure he was available for any questions we might have. We were just down the street from the streetcars which took us directly into downtown New Orleans so we only needed to take our car once. The house was meticulous and the furnishings were breathtaking. My husband and I loved the snack and beverage area and the breakfast. Actually breakfast was my favorite part, I loved the blueberry bread pudding so much that Brent gave me the recipe. We met Larry the owner the next day at breakfast. I loved that he would join and talk with us and the other guests at breakfast, that made me feel really welcome. We also were able to talk to some of the neighbors who were nice as well. There were so many nice restaurants withing walking distance that we didn't always have to go to the city to eat. My close friend was in town as well and was staying at the Hyatt, We gave her a tour of the house and she loved it so much she made reservations for next year and so did we. Looking forward to our stay next year. All B&B's should follow their lead.
