We stayed at the Banana Courtyard during the first week of October. Mary and Hugh and the staff were very helpful.
The rooms are quaint and the house if full of wall hangings, books, decorations etc. but yet there is not a speck of dust. How do they accomplish that?
This is an eclectic B&B that is cozy, and is a place to have breakfast and sleep after a long day sightseeing or at the jazz clubs. It is not a hotel with the lobby, restaurant and the other add-ons that are typical of hotels. But that was a positive, not a negative for us.
The only caveat is that the Banana Courtyard is not in the French Quarter - it is on the outer edge so you will either need to take a taxi or walk a long way to get to your destination.
We were happy with our choice but I would have liked to be a little closer to the action.More
