This is truly and excellent B&B and we had a fabulous time here. The Garden District is a fair bit quieter than the French District, but that suited us. The tram runs from the end of the street and takes about 20mins to get into the main strip, although we enjoyed staying local anyway. Chimes was full of character and... More

Chimes is the perfect place to call home while visiting New Orleans. Charles and Jill are wonderful hosts who know their city.

The owners of this B and B are sincere in their desire to furnish their guests with the most comfortable stay possible. We have stayed here several times. The other guests have always been most interesting and breakfast here is not only delicious but comes with interesting conversation. Highly recommend!

This is the third time we stayed at the Chimes. I love that it is super close to the St. Charles street car line and all the fun on Magazine Street, and yet is located on a quiet, beautiful, and easily navigated street! Love the breakfasts and the great inside line the hostess provides regarding all the really great things... More

I stayed here for three nights in July 2016. I was in New Orleans for a family visit. Jill's hospitality and offer to help with everything was truly welcoming. My room was tastefully appointed, the breakfasts were quite good, and the sense of community at the breakfast table was lovely. This B&B has an excellent neighborhood location and the street...

This was our fourth visit to The Chimes. We were there for the first weekend of Jazz Fest. Our hosts Jill and Charles are so welcoming, so friendly, and so helpful. The accommodation is excellent. The breakfasts to die for, and Jill's knowledge of New Orlens and its music encyclopaedic. We can't imagine staying anywhere else and we'll be back... More

After many trips to New Orleans, we finally found our landing place - The Chimes! What a perfect place to stay - clean, comfortable, and charming. Despite the rainy weather we had, we still enjoyed the courtyard and our room. Jill and Charles were the ultimate host and hostess - and their breakfast and breakfast table banter so fun!

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
