First let me say that Phillip and David are the perfect hosts. This little B&B is the perfect distance from the French Quarter. It is a colourful walk down Frenchman Street to the Quarter and Phillip and David tell you all the local secrets to truly experience New Orleans.
I've stayed here twice, once during Mardi Gras, and again at Halloween. The neighborhood is quiet and the perfect place to rest after the party on Bourbon Street or sip chicory coffee on the balcony before going out for a day of shopping at the French Market.
The bedrooms are spacious and clean. I only had rooms with an attached bath and both the bathrooms were always clean and well maintained. I never had a problem with water pressure or not having hot water. The only downside to the bathroom is that the ones that only have a shower, the shower is really small.
I can't say enough good things about this B&B! The price is right, the coffee is great, but the best part is how by the end of a week, you will feel like a local!
