Looked at alot of places in New Orleans. Many were in the French Quarter and looked good from the outside, but the inside was run down, dirty, and in some cases unsanitary. I even encountered innkeepers who acted like they were doing me a favour by letting me check them out. I was staying for a week following Mardi Gras so the accomidations were important to me
I came accross Maison Macarty and checked it out. A few blocks away and you are in the French Quarter. A nice walk, or $7.00 by cab.
The house is bright and chearful from the outside with front porch, upper balconies plus a beautiful backyard with pool and an area that is perfect for weddings.
Inside the decor is beautiful. Very elegant and definetly upscale with fantastic attention to detail. I arrived early in the week when it was quiet so I got a tour. All rooms were clean, large, and very nicely decorated.
Since it was happy hour, Kurt, the innkeeper treated me to a cocktail and gave me an orienration to the area He was prepared with maps and recommendations for restaurants, cab companies, day trip info, etc.
The next morning the chef Curtis made a fantastic hot breakfast, eggs, sausage, and the best pancakes I have ever had! He even accomodated another guests food allergies.
Bottom line, this B and B far exceeded my expectations in every area plus had the advantage of a charming, caring, organized owner effectively managing the business.
