Two weeks ago we spent the Christmas holidays at this wonderful B&B. Before writing this review I read many of the current reviews (I didn't check TripAdvisor prior to booking) and I'm not sure I would have believed all of the glowing reviews... BELIEVE THEM! This old Victorian home is a great place to stay. As many of the reviews point out, the rooms are spotless, the value can't be beat, and the proprietors (Ray & Luis) are the nicest people you'll ever want to meet! Twice Luis personally took us Downtown instead of letting us wait for the bus (which stops right out front, costs the same as the Streetcar, and gets places quicker than the Streetcars).
If you're looking for thick wall-to-wall carpet, room service, and satellite TV, go to a Marriott or Sheraton - this is a 100+ year old house. Yes, it can be drafty, creaky, and you'll probably hear the next door neighbors... you're staying in a family neighborhood! The rooms are clean & comfortable, with heat/AC, and windows that open; the beds are comfortable and all linens are clean, with fresh towels daily. The complementary orange juice & milk in the frig, ground coffee & creamer, and cold cereal are all restocked daily. As 1 review suggests, you must try Ray's homemade blueberry muffins (a great assortment of pastries are provided every morning in the parlor), they are the best I've ever eaten.
You get the idea; read the other reviews... and believe them. I'll never stay in the French Quarter again. The Garden District is much quieter, very safe after dark, and easy & quick enough to get to that there's no reason to put up with the hassles of staying on Canal St. or in the Quarter.
One irritation: the shower (at least in the Rose room) is so small it's almost unusable. It's a shame the bathroom wall wasn't pushed another foot into the kitchen area to make for a more friendly bathroom.
