I stayed at the historic Rathbone Mansion with my husband and my mother recently and had a very pleasant experience. We had a room with two queen beds, tv, microwave, and refrigerator, The room was plenty large enough for us and was decorated to period of style, If you are looking to stay somewhere high end, this will not be the place for you. However, if you are looking to stay at a nice, yet modest and affordable place this will be for you, There is a nice patio outside with a salt water pool and hot tub, The owner Pat was very friendly and accommodating and she even hosted a crawfish boil on a saturday evening. She invited everyone that was staying there and did not charge anyone for what seemed like and endless amount of food. That was a very nice thing for her to do. We also enjoyed wonderful home cooked breakfasts each morning prepared by Tonya. Tonya was also very helpful with giving advise on restaurants and attractions. She was especially helpful with giving the best walking directions to our destinations. We felt very welcomed and at home there the entire time as all of the employees were very friendly and helpful. This place is within a short walking distance to all of the action in the French Quarter. The day that we were leaving, we were expected to check out by noon, but since we had a late afternoon flight, Pat let us check out later and did not charge us extra. I chose to stay at the Rathbone Mansion because it was more affordable than most of the other places in the French Quarter and fit my budget. I can overlook the little expected imperfections because the people there made my experience great!
