We chose NO for the chance to experience the culture, history & architecture of this unique area. Finding the MP was a stroke of luck! In one location we found all of this and so much more. As you see in the other reviews; staff and owners were fabulous. By the 2nd day we felt as though we had been transported to a wealthy relative that was very happy to have us as their guests.
The rooms were spacious and delightful to be in; though we kept quite busy, we did have down time that we were happy to spend around this lovely home full of art, antiques & quiet nooks to visit in.
The wine & cheese social time was wonderful. We met many of the other guests and shared restaurant recommendations, music and favorite tour information. It was wonderful to meet people from other parts of the country.
We were assisted by Tom & Patricia with reservations for meals and any questions we asked, they were more than helpful. Their staff was equally friendly and being local had lots of information about where the local gathering places were.
We found the community to be very kind. From the streetcar operators, to wait staff & everyone between; New Orleans seemed pleased to see us and very helpful.
I would recommend this B&B to anyone who wishes to have a more personal and relaxed vacation.
As to the people who experienced less than they wanted; I would suggest that they have been more forth coming with any concerns. Any that we had were addressed immediately and with kindness. Courtesy is returned when given & I'm sure there are visitors who wish a less intrusive stay and for the staff that could be difficult to gauge.
I cannot imagine that we would have nearly the time we did staying in a "chain" hotel, no matter their cost.
So as for cost and amenities; we could not have been more pleased. The Maison Perrier was all we had hoped for and more. We are sure to stay there in the future if we are fortunate enough to return to New Orleans.
