Travelers' Choice
GreenLeaders Bronze level
B&W Courtyards is an 1854 Creole compound consisting of three historic cottages connected by lush tropical courtyards. An architectural award winner, B&W Courtyards is just 3 blocks from the music clubs on Frenchmen Street and 4 blocks from the French Market - close to the action but in a quiet neighborhood for when it's time to relax. Featured in Travel & Leisure magazine. A/C, wifi, private baths. Hosts are known for their knowledge of New Orleans' diverse cultural scene: jazz, rhythm & blues and funk music; parades and events, Mardi Gras, food and restaurants as well as museums and tours. They are happy to share their expertise with you. All of our rooms have en suite bathrooms - no walking down the hall or sharing with other guests. All but one of our five rooms feature a king size bed. The rooms are individually decorated with antiques and fine reproductions - no cookie cutter corporate decor here. Much of the artwork is by local painters and photographers. Breakfast service is currently on hold as we explore alternate offerings due to COVID-19.

The property is beautiful and secure. Everything was contactless, but we had quick communication. Loved all the thoughtful, decorative touches in both the room and the courtyard. We stayed in the Rear Carriage House. The rain shower head and the jetted tub were perfect after a long day. The citrus bath gel was luxurious. Wifi worked great. Neighborhood is walkable and friendly also. My husband and I liked staying in a neighborhood outside the French Quarter that was still close to everything. This is our new favorite spot in New Orleans!

Property's Favorite Review
What a lovely surprise it was to find this adorable Bed and breakfast, and what a breakfast it was . This charming well decorated and clean establishment is the ideal location. It is well run, we stayed 5 nights and got fresh towels daily. They even got milk for us when I explained we like to drink tea. The thoughtful touches of beer for nominal fee in the front fridge, and nothing was too much trouble. Our hosts Dana and Tom made us feel so very welcome.

Thank you thank you for your great review. It was a pleasure to host you and your friends. Dana & I are delighted that you enjoyed your visit with us. You picked a great weekend for your trip - we had three early Mardi Gras parades in the neighborhood - so you had the opportunity to get a sense of what carnival season is all about. The Krewe du Vieux parade is one of the most popular of the neighborhood parades, probably due to its scandalous themes. We do our best to accommodate our guests needs and preferences - like the milk for your evening tea. Dana & I hope we'll see you on another visit to New Orleans. And, if you want, you can follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with what's happening in New Orleans and B&W Courtyards

We stayed in the front carriage room with the purple cieling! Good bed, nice linens GREAT towels. We were there for our first NOLA Mardi Gras and Dana and Cindy helped us so much with figuring out how to participate and where to eat. We went to the WWII museum and she suggested eating at Cochon, which was divine. The gumbo and greens were perfect comfort food on a cold day.

The location can’t be beat! On a quiet street a couple of blocks from Frenchmen Street and the French Quarter. Tom is an excellent host, very knowledgeable and the breakfast he serves are oh so delicious. We stayed in the back carriage room which had a spa tub. I utilized the spa tub almost every day of my stay to relax after a days walk around town. Our room was immaculate when we arrived. The B&B had a beautiful courtyard filled with greenery and fountains. Would definitely come and stay again next time in town!
