We had the good luck to be able to stay at this bed and breakfast this month. It is a beautiful, well kept house and the hosts could not be friendlier. There is a pool and two of the rooms have rooms with balconies overlooking the pool. The inn is just at the eastern border of the French Quarter, making it very convenient and close to Frenchmens' Street with lots of local music (we did not get there at the right time, but we are told it is great.) The breakfast was not a hot breakfast, but bagels, cereal, and pastries and coffee. It was perfect for us, since we had most of our meals already planned and wanted only something to start our day, before we got down to serious eating in the quarter. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck in the afternoons with a glass of wine after walking all morning in the French Quarter, before striking out for dinner. Because it is on the edge of the Quarter, it was also comparatively quiet, although the stray midnight reveler did pass by on occasion. The only complaints I had were that the bed was a bit hard for my back (the king balcony room) and there was a small conditioning shampoo, which with my long hair is not very helpful when I count on inns for those toiletries with all the travel restrictions. Still, I did not ask for more and am fairly convinced that they would have provided more with pleasure if I had but asked. (I simply bought my own allowing me to get my preferred brand).
