You have probably already read the many praises the other TA reviewers have written. Believe them. GREAT experience. Stayed in the Sister house...just as pretty as the main and not feeling like a "second class" citizen. Tom and Patricia wonderfully helpful. If you're there on a Friday or Saturday evening, Patricia's cheese selections from a local fromagerie are wonderful. We spent 3 nights after being in the French Quarter at a big grand dame business hotel, The Royal Sonesta...but that's a different review.
