My wife and I stayed in the Pelican Suite from 6/18 to 6/22. We lucked out in that we happened to be the only guests in the B&B during this time so had the hosts full attention, who were the best hosts one could hope for in my humble opinion. They clearly loved the city and were more than happy to offer their experiences and suggestions which made dining out and finding our way around TONS easier. Our mini-fridge was always stocked with water and other drinks they provided and there were new offerings of snacks every day upon our return from enjoying the city. The property itself is lovely and well maintained, not uptight or pretentious at all which is crucial to my wife and I when we visit any place. They even had free bikes for us to use!! There is no reason for anyone to feel the least bit nervous in this neighborhood. My wife and I biked all over the place and received nothing but kindness and hellos on all of our journeys. The breakfast was always a nice sampling of local wares and hit the spot nicely for us. We'll be back the next time we head down to New Orleans.
