We stayed shy of a week at Maison DuBois. Entirely satisfied with our stay. It's wonderfully positioned just off Esplanade abutting both French Quarter and Frenchmen Street areas. Rooms are amply sized, some of which are huge with sitting areas. Our group stayed in the two largest suites, but the two rooms in the back really give you the serenity and deck views of the amazing courtyard w/swimming pool and hot tub. This space is quite the mini-Shangri La, very lush and romantically-lit. The house itself is a converted two-family, beautifully decorated and quite spacious in the common areas. Fellow travelers were a diverse and friendly group. Breakfast was simple but good--healthy cereals, fresh fruit, decent breads and such. Added plus was the convenience store two doors down. Most memorable was Tom, the innkeeper. Always available to provide suggestion for just about anything. He's funny and warm and is just as comfortable "settin a spell" to chat as he is taking a cue that you're breezing in and out and want to be left alone. This place is best suited for adults who want a a B&B to decompress in a safe, welcoming B&B.
