My husband and I decided to stay in a Bed&Breakfast for our Elopement weekend in New Orleans. First I was not entirely sure if I liked the idea since I am not too much into the furnishing and style most B&B tend to have. However, when we found Auld Sweet Olive online, I immediately liked the place and we did not get disappointed. It is beautifully furnished and not over loaded set in a quiet street. Nancy is the most wonderful, helpful and sweetest inn keeper. On our wedding day the rain came down in sheets, but very early in the morning Nancy offered us her house for the ceremony and photo shoot and literally saved the day for us! She even prepared a wonderful several layer wedding cake for us! The B&B is very peaceful and quiet, we always got very good sleep and the breakfast that Nancy makes every morning is delicious as others noted as well. It comes with several different homemade treats like Blueberry Scones, Banana Bread or the wonderful Eggs in Baskets. I liked the privacy, but yet Nancy is always there if you have any questions, such as recommendations on restaurants or places to visit. It is a nice walk to the French Quarter, but we also explored the Marigny and Bywater which offered some great restaurants (e.g. Maurepas). The best stay we have had in New Orleans so far! Highly recommended! We will be back!
