Reviewed May 21, 2012

Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast wins the trifecta when it comes to Great Accomodations, Great Service, and Great Location! Easy access to the St. Charles streetcar, the French Quarter, the Garden District and Magazine Street. The entire staff at GVB&B is great and the rooms are wonderful. We would highly recommend the Grand Victorian for any occassion.

Room Tip: The best room in the house is the Greenwood Room. Fronts on St. Charles with a private balcony, ver...

David, thank you so much for the positive feedback! I'm so pleased that you & Cindy had a GREAT Jazz Fest stay in my home. I also appreciated the tip about the Greenwood suite. I agree with you in that it is the best spot in the house! I hope you guys will come back again sometime soon & not wait another 10 years to celebrate your anniversary again.

We had a wonderful time in New Orleans staying at the Grand Victorian during Jazz Fest. The location was perfect, right on St. Charles and not far from the French Quarter. The house has been completely renovated so you have beautiful character with modern electricity and air conditioning. Our room was beautifully appointed including a decanter of sherry to sip on the private balcony. The breakfast was very good and always included a special hot item - pancakes or fresh croissants - as well as cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit. Bonnie is extremely knowledgeable about NO; the music, restaurants, clubs, transportation etc. and very generous about sharing her knowledge. She even had street car passes that we could buy. We loved our stay and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We were worried that the street car would be noisy but that was not an issue.

Thanks for the complimentary assessment of my home. I particularly appreciated your comments about our breakfasts. While officially B&Bs can only serve a continental breakfaast here in New Orleans, we try really hard to provide a nice & satisfactory assortment for our daily breakfasts. I'm glad that you enjoyed them!!

My boyfriend & I really enjoyed our stay at the Grand Vic. Beautiful neighborhood (a given, being the Garden District), the access to the streetcar was right out the front door (how easy is that?), but the access to all the Magazine street shops and restaurants was the real kicker, less than 5 blocks - just couldn't be beat. Also within walking distance to Lafette Cemetery #1, if your into that kinda thing. So location is fantastic, but the best part was Bonnie's suggestions (Bonnie is the owner, Rachel her assistant and really great too!), their helpfulness in printing out boarding passes, and little things like that - any place else it could have been a drag but Bonnie just took care of the little extra things so we were free to have a good time, now what else could you want in a place to stay?

Fantastic place. Super warm and welcoming without being bothersome.

My girlfriend and I are 27-year olds, and were looking for a place to splurge for a night. We LOVED it. And it is not far from the French Quarter. And the Garden District is wonderful.

We stayed here at the recommendations of another innkeeper in the area. The location, in the glorious Garden District, was optimal, as it was within easy walking distance to the Trolley as well as wonderful restaurants and shopping. Plus, we had a short walk to both Commander's Palace as well as to the independent bookstore, located in the "skating rink" in order to take a very informative and enjoyable walking tour of the Garden District.
Bonnie and Rachel were very nice hosts, The room was very comfortable and the nice continental breakfast--offered for several hours, allowed us the flexibility to eat when we wished so that we could go about our business at our pace. I recommend this beautiful establishment without reservation.

This Garden District property is such a pleasure. While breakfast is basic and not reflective of some experiences where the highlight is the owner's culinary artistry, the inn is beautiful, comfortable, well located (on the St. Charles Street Car line). Hostess Bonnie goes all out to do little extras for her guests (like having the street car day passes always available, complimentary beverages, morning coffee ready to start any hour). Only 1 1/2 blocks from famous Commander's Palace and just a few blocks from Magazine Street where great "locals" restaurants and shops continue to develop. Their customer service and follow up was impressive.

Room Tip: Some bathrooms are larger than others.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Grand Victorian B & B and hope to return soon. It was convenient to visit with our daughter at Tulane Law School. It was a lovely and well maintained mansion, with wonderful, conscientious oversight by Bonnie and Rachel. The rooms felt like home and the staff was first class. The free street parking, abundance and variety of breakfast foods, and the St. Charles Streetcar stop just steps off the front porch eliminated a lot of hassle in this great historic walking neighborhood. We are reluctant to recommend for fear that it will be full next time we try to stay.
