GPS took us straight down Canal street to the Algiers ferry, which was a whole zero dollars to Algiers, one dollar back. The B&B was two blocks from the ferry landing, in a very historic neighborhood. I was very glad to park the car in front for the whole stay, ride the ferry back and forth to New Orleans to the conference center and restaurants. Kevin and Wendy were very nice, too bad I did not get to spend much time with them. They gave many helpful suggestions for things to do or places to eat. If you like a good pub, the Crown and Anchor is just a couple of blocks away, as is a very decent restaurant (Dry Dock Cafe) and wine bar. Way better than the overpriced New Orleans hotels. If you stay in the king room, you should realize your private bathroom is down the hall.
