“Warm and welcoming stay at Maison Perrier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We spent 4 nights here and our stay could not have been better. Tom and Patricia, the hosts, are excellent at what they do. They've created a comfortable, warm atmosphere in a quiet, safe neighborhood in the Garden District of New Orleans. Tom was so welcoming when we arrived, after a long day of driving. They do have parking, either in a driveway, or on the street. And M.P. is located only 3 blocks from St. Charles Avenue, so it's an easy walk up there to catch the streetcar at Milan Street to head to the French Quarter. If you want to go back and forth during the day, or take other streetcar trips (Canal Street or Riverwalk streetcars) - you might be best off to buy an all day streetcar pass for $3/day. Otherwise, the trips are $1.25 each way. By the way, I think when we were last in New Orleans, 10 years ago, it was the same fare on the streetcar. Unbelievable - a bargain for transportation, we think.
Definitely take Tom and Patricia up on their recommendations for places to see, things to do, and where to eat in New Orleans. They have great suggestions, and are happy to call in dinner reservations for you, if need be. They also have a bookcase of attraction brochures and a huge notebook of restaurant menus available for guests to review in the sitting room.

The breakfasts were outstanding each morning, as well. Our first day was a crustless quiche/frittatta, then cinnamon french toast croissants, then another egg dish, and on our last day, scrumptious orange french toast with bacon. Prior to the hot breakfast (which is served 8:30-9:30) you can help yourself to fresh fruit, dry cereals, bagels, or yogurt. And, in addition to these gourmet breakfasts, late every afternoon, their were either cookies or brownies and pound cake out for afternoon/evening snacking/desserts. There is also an honor bar with wine, beer, soda, and water.
Our room was the Charlotte, and it was larger than I expected, and very comfortable. By the way, the photos of the rooms on the website for the inn don't do them justice - Tom can email you updated room photos if you want better views. The rooms are really lovely, and well maintained. We thought our mattress was very comfortable, and our room was quiet, as well.
We absolutely loved our stay at Maison Perrier, and would 100% stay here again, and would highly recommend it to others traveling to New Orleans, as well.
We felt that the rates were a great value, too. Note that the rates quoted include the full breakfast, and include taxes, as well, which most room rates do not.

Room Tip: Ask Tom to email you updated photos of rooms - current online pics don't do them justice!

This B and B is just right. It's in a quiet, almost bucolic neighborhood of tree line lined streets, stately oaks and some magnificent homes. Yet it's just two blocks from the historic St. Charles Street trolley or the #11 bus on Magazine Street, both just a twenty-minute ride from downtown or the French Quarter. Our room was big, airy, comfortable and beautifully appointed, with high ceilings, a balcony and a huge bathroom. Breakfasts are in keeping with NOLA's high culinary standards.

But what makes Maison Perrier special are its hosts (Tom and Patricia) and its staff. They could not be more welcoming, warm and attentive, recommending restaurants (all excellent choices), making reservations for us, suggesting itineraries and side trips, and calling cabs.

Maison Perrier is a bit pricey, but worth every penny we paid. Highly recommended!

I took my teenage son to New Orleans over spring break-because all the hotels around the quarter were booked, I ended up looking for a B&B and luckily found Maison Perrier. The room was a little more than I was looking to pay but it was a great place to stay on a quite neighborhood street. We certainly return there. We stayed in the Bea Room...the pictures on the website do not do this room justice. Tom told me on the initial call they had recently renovated the room--It is awesome. Large king size bed-very comfortable, the room was very large, a private deck and a little alcove that has a day bed. The bathroom was extra large and spacious as well. Tom and Patricia were both helpful and available but not in an obtrusive way. Tom had tons of suggestions about things to do and places to eat...even noting the actual street addresses for us on a map. The main house is warm and welcoming. They use the walls as a gallery for local artists, so there are tons of interesting paintings. They have lots of games available for use, an honor bar with a great wine selection, water and soda. Breakfast was excellent. Great stay and worth the money!

Room Tip: If you want to sleep in don't book a room near the kitchen. Bea has a private porch--

My husband and I visited New Orleans for the third time. We always stay at B&B's both in and around The French Quarter. This time we tried Maison Perrier. We were very happy with our experience there - from the moment we were greeted at the door to the day we were saying good bye. We stayed in The Dolly Room which was absolutely lovely. We had a very comfortable king bed and a semi private porch (which was really quite private). Our breakfasts were perfect - not too big and customized to our dietary needs. There were always home-baked treats in the home, and a self serve bar (including "pull your own" beer). The B&B is located on a very quiet road at the far edge of the Garden District - close to the streetcar and a few blocks walk away from Magazine Street. Thank you to the owners of this wonderful B&B for making our stay so enjoyable, relaxing and memorable.

Room Tip: The Dolly Room as a king bed and semi-private porch that opens from your bedroom - perfect!

Maison Perrier is a special place. We've stayed many times and each time is equally good. We can't say enough good about the Innkeepers, the staff, the breakfasts, the ambiance, the rooms.

If you are looking for a lovely, comfortable "home away from home" with knowledgeable innkeepers, full breakfast, wine and cheese, spacious rooms..... and you want to be Uptown New Orleans (near Magazine Street and not far off the St. Charles streetcar line), this is THE place to stay.

Wonderful! Can't wait to come back again next year.

I loved this B&B. The owners, Tom and Patricia, were incredibly gracious and exuded true Southern hospitality. My wife and I stayed at Maison Perrier for a weekend birthday getaway with 4 other couples that are good friends of ours. We stayed in Dolly. It was perfect. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was tasty with just the right portions. We enjoyed an early evening cocktail (beer or wine) with other guests in a comfortable den area every night.

The location was convenient to Magazine Street for shopping and the St. Charles streetcar for trips to the French Quarter. Tom had excellent recommendations for dining (including one of the best meals of my life at R'Evolution) and was quick to call for reservations or to get us a cab.

I'll be sure to stay here every time I can make it back to New Orleans.

This was our third visit staying in the lovely Maison Perrier and we can’t imagine staying any place else in New Orleans! Tom and Patricia, the hard working innkeepers, have created a warm and welcoming haven for those looking for a quiet, pampered stay in an otherwise, busy, bustling city.
Maison Perrier’s location, close to St. Charles St. in the Garden District, is perfect for getting further uptown or into the French Quarter while remaining safely tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. The porch and balcony offered a comfortable haven to read and relax each morning but the common rooms were equally inviting.
Tom’s warm welcome and helpful suggestions insured that we had a relaxing stay, while Patricia’s humor and generous breakfasts got us through each day with a satisfied appetites and smiles. These innkeepers clearly know their business, with attention to detail and the comfort of their guests at the top of their priority list.
The National Register house at 4117 Perrier Street is lovingly tended, keeping the feeling of the original grand lady yet handily meeting all the requirements of lodging guests in comfort and luxury. Over the last 5 years we have stayed in two different rooms, Claire and Lillian. Both rooms were quiet, comfortable and immaculately clean. We are fussy travelers who have stayed in many B+B’s and, in our opinion, Maison Perrier ranks with the best! We highly recommend Maison Perrier to anyone looking for a great value and memorable B+B experience in New Orleans.
