My girlfriend, the kids and I stayed two nights in two rooms in this gorgeous mansion. The storyville hotel sits within a five minute walk to the French quarter and I have to say.. the walk alone, with the local smells and creole architecture excites the senses, If you love to immerse yourself in your travel, this is the kind of place that screams to you. Each room has fresh beachy theme (at least ours did), which I found comfy(seeing how we are from pawleys island, sc). The courtyard or garden with a bridged lily pond, many palm trees, bamboo bar/lounge area is the perfect place to wind down after a day of letting the good times roll! Our hostesses, Barbara and Elizabeth went beyond the call of duty and accommodated us with discount passes for swamp tours, cemetery tours, ghost tours etc.. I CAN NOT WAIT to go back! I will never stay anywhere else. Merci beaucoup madamoiselles!!
