We stayed at the Grand Victorian just before Christmas to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Making our reservation was easily done online and the arrangements to arrive and check in were accomplished perfectly. The innkeeper Hoyt was genial and well informed and we enjoyed our conversations with him. He was well versed in the history of the Grand Victorian and we enjoyed learning about this stately mansion. Our room was very well appointed and comfortable. The bed was like a cloud and the bedding was luxurious. The bath area was large and well equipped with linen and soaps. We made good use of the downstairs sitting room which afforded a great view of Saint Charles Avenue. The Grand Victorian sits in a perfect location for dining, shopping and of course the streetcar. Our stay was a complete and total delight and the included breakfast every morning was a joy and a wonderful way to start the day. Stay here, you won't regret it.

We stayed in the Greenwood Suite. Supposedly it was a king bed but felt more like a queen. Mattress lumpy and very uncomfortable even though on line it says beds have luxury toppers. Pillows hard and lumpy. Sheets had stains on them. TV the WORST EVER - a tiny desk top computer size - even chain motels have larger TV's! Also the small TV was placed on an end table on one side of the bed so the person on the other side of the bed could not even see it. An uncomfortable settee across the room and no other comfortable chair to sit in even though one ENTIRE corner of the room was empty (not shown in on line room photos). Large bathroom with soaking jetted tub with a beautiful Mardi Gras stained glass window. On line description said there was a private balcony but I had to ask the host and he showed us the floor to ceiling window that opened to a small balcony looking out onto St. Charles Street. A dirty table and chair there and there was no OPEN railing so if you sat down all you could see was the back of shingles. There was a large communal balcony off the upper hallway with four sets of tables and chairs which looked out onto St. Charles Street.- a nice place to have coffee, wine or breakfast (if you took your breakfast up from the dining room by yourself). Breakfast was in the dining room, buffet style over a two hour period with tea, coffee, cocoa, milk, two juices, yogurt, cold and hot cereal, mini danish, mini muffins ,fruit cups, cheese, fresh fruit, and hard cooked eggs. We stayed three days and it was on the second morning when a kitchen helper was in the dining room when I came to get coffee, and asked if I wanted a quiche and the third day asked if I wanted a croissant sandwich. Don't know what we missed on the first morning hot dish wise as this option was not mentioned in the inn orientation. Lovely Victorian parlor looking out St.Charles Street. Books available but no signs of puzzles, games, DVD's etc. Excellent array of NOLA brochures. St Charles street car stop across the street to go into downtown and it lets you off just a few steps from the inn front door on the way back. No on site parking - need to park whatever you can find on St. Charles, which with the heavy car, bus and streetcar traffic puts your vehicle in danger. Inn is on a corner and side street parking is even worse. Hoyt, the host, was pleasant but was new to his job here even though he operated a b and b in South Carolina. For the price I was disappointed in this venue. Number one perk would be to get some large TV's!! Decanter of port or sherry and glasses in room. Mini frig in upper hallway which was empty and badly needed defrosting as it was not cool at all. At the room price I felt it should have been stocked with water and sodas and maybe a small coffee maker in each room rather than having to go downstairs for coffee. Many stairs to climb to upstairs rooms - no elevator. Would not stay here again.

Musty, Dusty and Overpriced! Our group booked the entire Grand Victorian B & B 14 years ago and again this past weekend. Time has not served this old inn well.....well, because the innkeeper has not continued to maintain the old property properly and to keep it in the pristine shape that it once was. It desperately needs tender loving care. The exterior needs some paint. The overgrown landscaping needs attention and less weeds. Inside, each and every room was dirty and dusty. The soft goods (bedspreads, etc) were musty and worn and had not been washed for many months or years. The mattress we had was honestly the very worst mattress that we have ever slept on....lumpy and old! The pillows, old and disgusting. the shutters had thick visible dust. Three light fixtures with some ripped lamp shades had minimum wattage making the rooms dark and seemingly even more dinghy. Two rooms had previous occupants belongings left behind. Breakfast? They offered microwave waffle and seemingly a 1/3rd size portion scrambled eggs and sausage almost like they split contents among a few people. They also had hard boiled eggs, muffins and fruit cup, cereal and toast! We did not expect a TV in the room, but there was one.. a tiny 15 inch with about six channels. Such a disappointment overall!

My husband and I visited NOLA for the first time and had an incredible experience! Our stay at the Grand Victorian served to enhance our vacation. Bonnie, the innkeeper and staff welcomed us warmly and put out breakfasts with fresh fruit, tasty hot entrees and an assortment of yogurts and cereals. We stayed in the beautiful Shadows room with its Old World charm. The high ceiling room is beautifully decorated, and the bed quite comfortable. After a full day discovering NOLA my husband and I would spend tranquil evenings at the upstairs balcony with a view to St. Charles Street. The location is terrific. The streetcar line to the French Quarter is literally right across the street! And the return on the streetcar leaves you right in front of the Grand Victorian! It cannot get more convenient than that!. Bonnie helped us with streetcar passes, restaurants, sightseeing, and a wealth of useful information. On our last evening in NOLA Bonnie recommended we eat at Muriel’s by the St. Louis church (another must see recommended by Bonnie) and was pleasantly surprised at how great the food was! If you eat there you have to visit the Séance Rooms upstairs! The Grand Victorian is highly recommended!

I would definitely stay here again! Bonnie and her staff were very accommodating. The room (the whole place, really) was just gorgeous. It's right on the streetcar line, and very convenient for getting to the French Quarter and downtown. Bonnie helped us with streetcar passes, Jazz Fest tickets, and a wealth of useful information. Highly recommended!
