This is a great B&B, recently renovated and with a new inn keeper, Nancy Gunn, who is a charming hostess as well as a wonderful pastry cook.
We this is our second visit here, most recently in November 2013, and I have so say that I have never had such good breakfast faire. See the attached photos.
The house is vintage New Orleans and has to be seen to be believed. Keep in mind that this is an old house, and that's part of its charm. If you want a five star experience in the concrete box of a hotel suite with all mod con, this may not be the place for you.
There is a nice patio too, for warmer days, and the location couldn't be better: a nice walk to Frenchman's St. or the French Quarter; convenient to bus and trolley lines if you want to get to Canal St. or the Garden District. That said, there is plenty to see and do in Marigny and Bywater--just ask Nancy.
