My stay at Ashton's Bed & Breakfast was actually a gift from my grandparents and what an awesome gift it was! We stayed in the 'Creole Queen' bc the room was painted red (my favorite color) and the description stated it was for couples looking for a romantic getaway (we were:). We were really impressed. The entire B&B is gorgeous, but the Creole Queen was especially aesthetically pleasing. It's tucked away in the back part of the house on the second story, so you feel like you have some privacy. We actually didn't have to walk through the main house as we went to and from the city. The room was clean and the A/C was in full effect (important when in NOLA during Hurricane season). It was definitely worth the extra money to have the shower and jacuzzi tub. The food is totally out of this world: Patrick says he has no formal training, but this man is a true self-made chef. One morning we had sweet potato french toast and the other morning we had poached eggs in a puff pastry with creole sauce...I literally almost licked the plate. John is a fantastic server. There are refreshments/snacks available for the rest of the day. The location is another part of what makes this place superb: it's a $10 cab fare to the French Quarter. Esplanade truly is an ideal location for access to the city. I would recommend taking a cab everywhere bc you'll pay at least $20 to self-park, so it's not worth the headache when cabs make it too easy. I can honestly say that we will be back. If you think about it, you pay just about what you would pay for a hotel and yet you get a 5-star breakfast instead of a continental breakfast of stale toast and cold cereal. You are also surrounded by history, cajun culture, and architectural beauty instead of cookie-cutter corporate buildings, which is why most visit New Orleans anyway, right? Karma made great recommendations on where to go/what to do. Patrick & Karma were incredibly accomodating when arrived late. They even give you a keyless clicker to park in the back! We were incredibly pleased and you will be, too!
