My husband and traveled from Florida to New Orleans to celebrate our ten year wedding anniversary and Halloween. We arrived in New Orleans a few days before Halloween weekend and spent 6 nights at Royal Street Courtyard. We were greeted by Phillip, who was extremely helpful in taking the time to recommend the best places to eat as well as sights of the area. As long as we dined at the places he recommended, the food was amazing! We strayed once - lesson learned, the food was terrible... so we stayed with his recommendations the remainder of the trip.
We absolutely loved the house and our room (room 10) was beautiful and cozy. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed having access to the upstairs balcony from our room. Our private bathroom was small and across the hall from our room, but more than adequate for our needs. We enjoyed using the jacuzzi out back one evening - so very relaxing. Breakfast was just enough to get us started for the day and hold us over until brunch or lunch (I loved the coffee!).
My husband and I loved the Artsy-Bohemian feel of Marigny and felt safe and comfortable walking through the neighborhood at all hours. Halloween weekend/night was a blast and we are so glad we were there to experience it!
Phillip and David were very pleasant, helpful hosts without being too invasive. My husband and I fell in love with the city of New Orleans and definitely want to make a trip back next year. When we do return, we will most definitely stay at Royal Street Courtyard again!
