“Fantastic !!!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

The hosts Tom & Dana were the best. Very giving of there experiences in N.O. and recommendations on what to see and where to eat! Tom's breakfasts were like artwork, another highlight of our stay. We stayed in the Front Carriage House and found it to be very comfortable, with plenty of space for all wife's luggage! Parking was never a problem and this B&B is a short walk to the French Quarter. Loved it and will be back!

Looking for a great B&B - look no further. This is an excellent place in the Marigny neighborhood! We had a great time staying here, always found parking for our car. We stayed with the old owners a couple times and this was our first time with the new owners. They are interesting, accommodating and very nice. Rooms are still very cool and well maintained, they have done a lot of updating. This is within walking distance to French Quarter -but we like to explore the Marigny and the Bywater- so much happening in those areas. Breakfast is delicious and the fridge in the courtyard is stocked with giant waters, local craft beers and local sodas. One bonus is that this place is located across from The Cake Bakery & Café - one of the best place in NOLA!

Room Tip: They have an excellent website that shows the various rooms.

My wife and I were in New Orleans for a wedding and wanted to stay somewhere out of the Quarter but close enough so that we could walk. Tom and Dana's little hideaway in Marigny is in the perfect spot. Just a short walk to the French Quarter, the French market, the street car, Elysian Fields, Esplanade, The Bywater. The rooms were very comfortable and cozy. The honor system drink fridge was an excellent touch. The breakfast was always delicious to eat and beautiful to look at. They had excellent recommendations for places to eat. The Cake Cafe, Three Muses on Frenchmen, Euclid Records, Allways Cafe, Siberria, the list goes on and on. Orange Couch coffee was conveniently located to the B&W. We just can't say enough good things about our experience and we hope to go back someday soon! Thanks Tom & Dana! One note about Taxi service to the B&W from the airport. Apparently depending on the route you take to the airport your cabbie may try to charge you two separate fares for going through two areas. As a tourist its hard to know what you should or shouldn't be paying. IN short the fare should be $33 plus tip but on our way out of town our cabbie hit us for $33 plus a separate $10 fare for driving outside this zone. Keep that in mind.

Room Tip: We stayed in the front carriage house and it was very comfortable.

This property is in a quiet area that is very close to Frenchmen Street and easy walking distance to the Quarter. The hosts Tom and Dana do a great job with breakfast and making you feel welcome, and have much advice of how to get around and what to see and do. The breakfasts are awesome!

From the initial phone call through the checkout to go home Dana and Tom were fabulous. There is so much more to say than what i can write. Very knowledgeable and friendly, courteous and professional. In love with B and W courtyards and the fine city of New Orleans. The location is perfect as you are walking distance to anything in the Quarter. Listening to Tom as where to go and what to see in the city turned a good trip into a fantastic trip. The accommodations were cozy and tidy, the atmosphere was peaceful and laid back. You will never find better people than Mr and Mrs Tom Stoner. Looking forward to staying there on my return trip.

I had to book a last minute trip as I needed to drive from Texas to Alabama, then turn around and come right back. I wanted to stay in New Orleans over night on my way back and didn't realize it was going to be Memorial Day weekend. I looked everywhere for a hotel room or VRBO but found nothing or everything was a 2 night minimum. I found this place and saw that they had 1 night available and contacted the owner (Tom) he told me that he would let me rent the room he had available for 1 night (which was the Courtyard room). I'm so glad it worked out as this place was very close to the French Quarter so we just hopped on the trolley at the French Market and rode it down to Harrah's Casino then made our way back as far as we could, then took a taxi ride from about Ursaline back to room and I think that cost us $5.50. It was a great location. Tom & Dana were fabulous and treat you like they've known you forever. Breakfast was great, koi pond was cool, Very easy to get in and out, parking wasn't really an issue but could be depending on when you go. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept on in a while. I would not recommend the Courtyard room for any large people as the shower and toilet were built into old closets and are quite small, they do disclose this on their site but, for us it was perfect. I will be back for sure! I would say this place is more for couples or people with older children.

Room Tip: The Courtyard room is towards the front and is right next to the breakfast area.

B&W Courtyards was a really fantastic place to stay for our quick trip to NOLA to see our niece graduate from Tulane. It was so convenient to the French Quarter and the music clubs on Frenchman's St (easy 10 min walk). The breakfast was very nice and our hosts were delightful. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to the Big Easy.
