I surprised my husband for his 50th birthday with a trip to New Orleans. First time for both of us. Auld Sweet Olive was perfect. I chose this place because I wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle but close enough that we could walk. This gave us a nice local experience because we had to walk through the old Marigny section to get to Frenchman Street and the French Quarter. (And if you want a local experience, stop into Marie's Bar around the corner...awesome Bloody Mary's) We stayed in the Sweet Olive room which I chose because it had its own private entrance. Although the bathroom was small, it served its purpose. Nancy is a wonderful hostess and cook. The breakfast was beyond expectations and I always left stuffed in the morning because I wanted to try everything. Nancy was also very helpful leading up to the trip with suggestions on activities and restaurants. We couldn't do them all but the ones she recommended were wonderful. I highly recommend to have a complete NOLA experience!
