Prairieville, Louisiana11 contributions
Absolutely the best place I've stayed in New Orleans and I go there a lot! Few things I loved.. Wood floors, antiques, large room, comfy bed. Front and back porches to chill on as well as several garden/outdoor seating areas. They provide lotion in your room and more in the bathroom. Also a jar of Cotton balls and Qtips. The breakfast everyday was amazing. Staff, super nice. And tea! Great assortment of teabags. And they have signs everywhere "Quite between 9pm-9am" which I love because i like to sleep. It's walking distance to several great establishments like Mandina's restaurant and Finn McCools bar. I don't think you could find a better location. I stayed for five days and will stay there again. Highly, highly recommend.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this place. First, its super clean, the courtyards are beautiful and cozy and the breakfast in the morning is AMAZING. Free parking too. We stayed for two days. The first night we walked about 3 minutes down the street to an amazing hole in the wall restaurant, Mandina's. Super good and very large portions. We walked back to our place and hung out in the courtyard the rest of the evening. Even though a lot of people stay there, it never feels overloaded and busy. Breakfast is done in shifts and you pick your time when you arrive. You will eat with about 3 or 4 other couples, but everyone has their own table, so you don't have to visit and mingle with others if you do not want too. Their home is right on the trolley route and you can pick up the trolley right across the street. We will be back.

If my review is helpful, please give me a “thank you” vote. 1. Expectations / frame of reference for my remarks. While traveling for business in the U.S. I am required to stay at a chain such as Marriott (Courtyard or Marriott Residence Inn) or Hilton (Hilton Garden Inn or Hampton Inn). While traveling on vacation, I typically look for a unique, independent / ”boutique” small-medium size hotel or B&B that is comfortable and clean with a professional & helpful staff with good amenities/services but not anything opulent. This was my first time to stay at the Canal Street Inn. I am grateful for my decision; it exceeded all expectations and I would not consider staying anywhere else in New Orleans. 2. Date & details of my visit/trip. Friday 15 January to Monday 18 January 2021. I was on my way from Texas to North Carolina and stopped in New Orleans to visit the National World War II Museum. 3. Location. Check the hotel’s website for up-to-date information. I plugged the address into my iPhone’s navigation app and it took me directly there. 4. Cost. Check the hotel’s website. 5. Parking and access 5.a. Free parking is available on the street (Canal Street) in front of the home and there are approximately six parking spaces behind the inn. 5.b. Passenger vehicles. Easily accessible. Large trucks may have difficulty parking in the lot behind the house. 5.c. RVs. I would estimate that RVs cannot negotiate the parking lot behind the inn 6. Hotel grounds and aesthetics. The inn is situated in a quiet neighborhood; however, I was not there on a weekday. The neighborhood is comprised of similar Craftsman-style homes and B&Bs. The home and grounds are very-well maintained. There is seating available on the front porch and a very large pergola that accommodates approximately 20 persons. 7. Layout of house. I believe there are a total of 11 rooms on three floors. 7.a. 1st floor – walkout basement. Sitting area; approximately four rooms. 7.b. 2d floor: Formal sitting room, breakfast area, kitchen, ½ bathroom, approximately three rooms. 7.c. 3d floor: Sitting area, approximately four rooms. 8. Amenities. The innkeeper places snacks in the breakfast area on a daily basis (microwave popcorn, crackers, granola bars, etc). 9. Room. I stayed in room # 8 (Street Car room). It is on the second (main) floor immediately inside the entrance. It is very large with a queen size bed, closet, private bathroom, desk, flatscreen TV, Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator; there is no microwave in the room but visitors have access to one in the breakfast area. It faces Canal Street and has floor-to-ceiling windows. 10. Staff. Monica (the innkeeper/owner) contacted me when I booked the room and provided me with check-in procedures. She was present every morning for breakfast and was very courteous and accommodating. I cannot overstress how courteous and professional she was (without seeming ingratiating or fake). She was a tie for the #1 innkeepper I have ever encountered (with the Rosen House in Ft Worth, TX). 11. Other patrons. I enjoy staying at B&Bs since I there is an opportunity to interact with other patrons/visitors. Some of the other patrons included the following: 11.a. 20’s something visitors. In town for a wedding. 11.b. 20’s something visitors. Alumni of a local university in town for a football game. 12. Weather. I recommend checking weather conditions via Accuweather or another online source to ensure you pack accordingly. 13. Handicapped access. I am not handicapped but I realize knowledge of handicapped access is helpful. I believe the first floor rooms are handicap-accessible but I do not believe there is handicap access to the second floor (breakfast area). 14. Transportation / Getting Around 14.a. Walking. If you are in good shape, the downtown attractions are within 15 minute walk. 14.b. Streetcar. There is a streetcar stop immediately in front of the inn. I used it on several occasions in the daytime. 14.c. Uber. I used it several times (primarily in the evenings). 15. Clothing and equipment. I have included this information for those who may not be familiar with weather in coastal Louisiana. 15.a. Clothing. New Orleans has a very casual attitude and can be very hot and humid; pretty much any type of attire is acceptable but since I was there to visit the World War II museum, I recommend that that visitors to this attraction consider the appropriateness of their attire. 15.b. Equipment. While I was out & about, I carried a small backpack everywhere I went. It contained the following: backup battery charger for iPhone/camera; hydration system; water bottle(s); small travel towel (for sweat and after rainstorms); sunscreen; chapstick; sunglasses. I would also recommend a wide-brimmed straw hat if you intend on walking for any extended period of time. 15.c. Other equipment. I frequently purchase artwork while on vacation and routinely take a telescoping plastic tube (typically used for maps and blueprints). In this manner, I can carry them on my return plane ride/vehicle ride without the risk of damaging my artwork. For carrying flat art prints, I take two large pieces of heavy cardboard with me. If I purchase artwork, I can "sandwich" the artwork between the cardboard and place it in the bottom of my luggage. 16. Food. I highly encourage visitors to partake of Seafood Gumbo and Crayfish Etoufee while in New Orleans. 17. Nearby attractions – National World War II Museum. 17.a. This is a professionally-curated world-class museum that requires two days to fully enjoy all of the exhibits. I encourage you to purchase a ticket for the 4D movie “Beyond all Boundaries”. The major attractions are listed below. 17.b. The “Road to Berlin” exhibit(s) follows the European campaign from causes for Hitler’s conquest of Europe to the Allied victory. 17.c. The “Road to Tokyo” exhibit(s) follows the causes for Japan’s empirialism and invasions to the Japanese surrender. 17.d. The Boeing pavilion has six beautifully-restored aircraft suspended from the ceiling and two additional vehicles on the floor. I believe the vehicles rotate in & out; on my first visit five years ago, neither of these vehicles were there but there were other vehicles/tanks present. - U.S. Navy F-4 Corsair fighter. - U.S. Army P-51 Mustain fighter. - U.S. Navy SBD Dauntless dive bomber. - U.S. Navy TBM Avenger torpedo bomber. - U.S. Army B-25 Mitchell medium bomber. - U.S. Army B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bomber. - Ford GPA amphibious Jeep. - Willys Jeep with a 76mm recoilless rifle. 18 . Nearby attractions - USS Kidd (World War II destroyer). Baton Rouge, LA (80 mi (128 km) / 1 hr 30 min west). 18.a. This is a very good attraction for anyone interested in military/naval museums. See my review dated 23 December 2020. 18.b.The ship is well-restored. 18.c. The museum is a very nice memorial to Louisiana veterans. 19. Photos. I have not included any photos. The photos on the B&Bs website and TripAdvisor are accurate depictions.

 20. Conclusion. I will definitely stay here again when I return to the area and enthusiastically recommend it to anyone.

This is a wonderful place to stay! the hostess was amazing and made sure all of our needs were met. Room was comfortably furnished and we enjoyed our stay very much. If anything was an issue, it was parking. But then again, it was in town...what would you expect.:)
