We went to New Orleans to celebrate my birthday, and we decided to stay at the Grand Victorian. We wanted to stay out of the French quarter and be somewhere more relaxed, and the Grand Victorian was it. We stayed in the Greenwood room, which is very spacious and nicely appointed. The A/C in the room and in the rest of the house was very comfortable.
On my birthday the staff brought out a muffin with a candle in it and sang Happy Birthday to me. Bonnie and her staff are very friendly and helped us decide where to go to dinner on our first night there, and they also suggested some sites to see. Bonnie recommended the Superior Seafood Company, which is very easy to get to by the Street car, and the food, drinks and service were excellent. A must try for sure!!!!
We had a great time, and we will be back for sure to stay at the Grand Victorian and experience all that New Orleans has to offer.
