House of the Rising Sun and Algiers Point deliver the best in local style, with international flair. My husband took me to NOLA to celebrate a milestone birthday that I'll never forget, thanks in large part to the hospitality of our hosts Kevin and Wendy. They had excellent tips on food, music, and atmosphere at any number of places - on both sides of the river - where we enjoyed the company of locals. New Orleans is one of the friendliest cities ever, and this B&B is the ideal home base.
This trip was only a long weekend, but next time we'll be sure to allow more time to take the walking tour of the historic neighborhood of Algiers Point as outlined in the historical society's brochure, co-authored by Kevin.
Having a pint at the English pub with our hosts (not sure if Kevin or Boudin was more excited about going to the pub!), we truly felt welcome - Where else but in New Orleans?
