Stayed here for Parent Visiting Weekend at Tulane. I had very mixed feelings about this place.
Cons: 1. Not that close to Tulane. Took at least 15 minutes to get there. I think would have been a better location if we wanted to spend more time downtown. 2. Weird slightly wasteland neighborhood. Although it says "Lower Garden District" it is actually quite close to the highway and looks pretty industrial. Nothing quaint about the actual street. 3. Noone was there to let us in for at least 30 minutes after we arrived due to confusion on their part about arrival time. We were let into the foyer by other guests but lost half an hour waiting to get into our room that could have been spent with our daughter. We got an apology but nothing else. 4. Breakfast was a disappointment - no homemade anything except make-your-own waffles. Just cold cereal, pre=wrapped croissants, granola bars and supermarket muffins. There was some fruit. (Maybe this is true of many southern B & Bs as I noticed this in another place I stayed in in NO).
Pros: 1. Inside the house was nice. Our room was a nice mix of old fashioned and modern amenities. 2. The pool area was truly lovely - like a tropical oasis.. We took someone's suggestions and got take-out mojitos from the bar across the street (a bit strong for my taste) and had them in the hot tub. Very romantic. 3. The people were very nice (though the lack of "compensation" for keeping us waiting strikes me as not the best customer service). 4. Close to lower Magazine Street and to parts of downtown. 5. Fruit and nuts were set out to snack on when needed.
