Just returned from our first visit to NO, and our stay at Nancy's lovely and peaceful home was the perfect counterpoint to the constant excitement of this amazing city. On a quiet residential street, the Auld Sweet Olive B&B was a perfect choice. As others have noted, Nancy's home cooked breakfasts are a treat. Great NO coffee, different baked goods each day and yummy egg dishes. The house is warm and homey, but not cutesy or frilly. High ceilings, wood floors, and nice antique furniture. We stayed in the Sweet Olive room with its huge bed and glass door to the front garden. There is a larger rear garden as well. Perfect location for walking to restaurants and clubs on Frenchman St, the Mississippi riverfront is not far, and the French Quarter, Canal Street and St. Charles trolley were longer but doable walks. We parked our car in the neighborhood and didn't use it again. Definitely will return to NO for another visit and will absolutely stay at Auld Sweet Olive again.
