Lots of reasons to stay at RBGH, but you should go there just because of the innkeeper Kelly and her adorable poodle Sweet. She made us feel like we were visiting with family. When we got there she sat on the stoop with us, had a beer and went over places to eat and things to do. She did not steer us wrong. We had red bean, rice and smoked sausages at Coops. She also recommended Port of Call for hamburgers - the best hamburger I have ever had served with a baked potato side. If you go to Port of Call be sure to have a Neptune's Monsoon in a go cup. She also said to skip Bourbon St (unless you are a frat boy and then it is your scene) and go to Frenchman St. Around the corner from RBGH is Cafe Envie - go there for breakfast. We also went to the neighborhood bar called the Golden Lantern. The bartender and other people at the bar made us northerners feel very welcome. During our stay there was a water problem and you had to boil your water before drinking it. Kelly called us to make sure we knew and there was bottled water in our room when we returned. The location was perfect for us because we didn't want to rent a car. There are plenty of things to do in walking distance. We stayed in the Suite. It was tastefully and functionally decorated. It was clean and the bed was comfy. The only reason I did not give them 5 stars is because of the noise level. There is no soundproofing between the rooms; just a wall. The people in the room next door sounded like they were in our room. They woke us up during the night when they got back to the room and then when they went to sleep the man snored like a chain saw. We will go to New Orleans again and we will stay at RBGH.
