This was our second trip to NOLA but our first B&B experience ever, and I must say that we were enchanted with it. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable, but what really made it special was the innkeepers, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, who totally went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. I can't thank them enough!
We stayed in the 2 bedroom "sweet dreams" suite which had access to the rear balcony overlooking the lovely courtyard, and also had the most comfortable bed I ever slept in. Every morning coffee, tea, bagels & pastries were provided in the lobby, as well as computer access 24/7. We also brought a little netbook computer and were able to hook into their wireless broadband from our suite. There are a few small improvements that could be made, such as hooks on the bathroom door, a bed frame without footposts to make the king size bedroom feel roomier; but overall, it was much better than expected!
The location was great too...far enough away from Bourbon Street to be quiet, but close enough to walk to without tiring out. It was also close to the French Market and the streetcar station that will bring you to Canal Street or the Garden District for very little money.
One very important point to consider is that there were absolutely no mildew odors at the Creole Inn...a problem that plagues New Orleans since Katrina. In 2007 we stayed at the Hilton, which reeked of mildew then, and still does now!
The only drawback of a B&B vs. a hotel is that the walls are thin, so you have to be considerate of your neighbors by keeping volume levels down. If that is not a problem for you then I highly recommend that you give the Creole Inn a try on your next trip to NOLA!
