We have been to the Royal Street Courtyard B&B now two years in a row, and we are planning another trip for 2013 already. This place is the only place one should stay because your hosts, Phillip and David, ensure that every aspect of your trip is delightful. Phillip is an expert on New Orleans, and upon arrival, we received an awesome tutorial with the help of a guest map of all that the city has to offer. Additionally, Phillip consistently demonstrates that he has excellent taste in food and knows where one should go for every occasion. The rooms are spacious, cozy, and quaint with all the amenities one might need. The beds and pristine sheets are extremely comfortable (especially in room 10 with its balcony that overlooks the street) while the jacuzzi is relaxing and hot. Continental breakfast is served, and we usually partake of a cup of coffee and a seat in the back courtyard. The map that Phillip gave us was utilized every day in every shape and form. The location is ideal since it is in the Marigny, which is outside of the Quarter, but within in reasonable walking distance to everything, so it is not loud or filled with revelers still looking for a party on Bourbon Street. The area is safe, comfortable, and very Southern as well as down the street from coffee houses and the Cake Cafe. The experience from start to finish is amazing, and we long to return the moment we leave. Our hosts made it so ideal for rest and relaxation, and we are now very loyal patrons.
