This place is cool. Pat is amazing. Breakfast really is delicious, you should go! The houses are giant, old and awesome. They're perfectly situated just a few blocks from the French Quarter and a straight shot to the fairgrounds for Jazz Fest. Cons: while I guess I can understand why you wouldn't invest a lot of money into updating a... More

Always a great stay at the Rathbone. Pat, Jaycee, and Tanya are the best!!! It's like coming home every time we visit. It's like we're part of the family. The rooms are great, always clean, and the pool and hot tub are perfect. It's a block away from the French Quarter and they are building a new trolley line that... More

Listed as a B&B in the historic district, has quite a bit of character . On the edge of the Treme. Trolley line is being extended on Rampart, just 2 blocks away. Mostly continental breakfast, serve yourself. We were there for a week, business and pleasure. Room was not serviced daily, depended on who was cleaning that day. Queen bed,... More

If you want to stay in a part of history, this is the place. Room was always cleaned and bed made everyday. Staff were friendly, caring and knowledgeable about the area. Made off two mansions. The 1244 Esplanade Ave mansion is the main office, breakfast, pool and hot tub are located. There are also rooms there which was once a... More

Our family received a gift certificate from a silent charity auction we attended for a two night stay at this B&B. We called to inquire about availability and we were met with suspicion and accusation. They managers did not remember donating any gift certificates and they were going to "investigate" the truth before letting us know of their availability. The... More

Rathbone Mansions has stolen my heart! I met up here with old school friends; in the last week of November 2015. I checked in to Rathbone and was looked after right from the get go!

This historic home is in a fantastic location within walking distance of the best NOLA has to offer! My only advice is that it caters to humble, fun-loving individuals and families.

Too hard to leave. The mansions were gorgeous and wonderful to stay in, and Pat, Tayna, Jack, Jason and Jacey displayed southern hospitality at it's finest. Thanks everyone, we love you guys!

Staying in Treme

Neighborhood Profile
Treme
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
