“Old World Charm with Charming Host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2007

A rehabilitated mansion situated between my two favorite parts of town - The Garden District (best restaurants & shops) and The Warehouse District (best music venues). I have stayed at Margaret Gardens at least 7 times over the years, for Jazz Fest, New Years and Mardi Gras. The house is simply gorgeous and the host Eddy Rovelo obviously loves the property and his role as host which is why he's great at it! The courtyard is just really something and a beautiful place to have breakfast or evening cocktails. I can't say enough about the place - you really can't go wrong staying there!

Stayed April 2005

Upon arriving at historical Margaret Gardens, you immediately get swept away by the intimate courtyard setting with shady trees, brilliant flowers and flowing fountains. The guestrooms have balconies that overlook the courtyard exhibiting large ferns and grand view of the Inn's Carriage House. It is the perfect spot for an impromptu gathering for a crawfish feast or for a quiet morning coffee and croissant breakfast served by host Edy Rovelo.

We have stayed there on two occasions, New Year's Eve and for Jazz Festival in April. The accommodations were quite comfortable and affordable. The rooms are spacious with modern bathroom fixtures and our room had a Jacuzzi. The unique furnishings and decor show that there was painstaking attention to detail to recreate the authenticity of the 19th Century.

The high rating for Margaret Gardens is based on a spectacular experience in New Orleans with the help of a friendly host, great restaurants and an "anything but ordinary" guesthouse retreat.

We stayed in the Margaret Master Suite, and enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub and the two balconies (one facing Prytania Street in the master bedroom and the other in the adjacent sitting room overlooking the courtyard.)

We relaxed in the elegant Magnolia Room parlor after touring the nearby WWII museum.

In the beautiful courtyard, we read the morning paper and enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast and the good service and attention to detail that we received from the Innkeeper, Edy Rovelo.

Thank God, NOLA will live on! We will be back!!!
