I've stayed at Royal Street Courtyard three times over three years. The most recent being March 2013 and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in New Orleans.
Phillip and David are great hosts. When you first arrive, Phillip will greet you and will be very happy to give you a quick run-down of things to do and places to eat in the local area. He can also provide some interesting background on New Orleans and the B&B, itself.
The location of the B&B is just perfect. The Marigny is a very friendly and safe part of town. There are loads of great places to eat in the local area and in the Bywater (about 15 minutes' walk). If you're in town for the nightlife then Frenchman Street and the start of the livelier French Quarter area is just four blocks away. I also recommend getting a 6-pack of Abita from Schiro's, tuning into WWOZ and sitting on the front porch (and waving at the friendly locals) or in the private courtyard at the back.
I've stayed in four of the rooms over my visits and found them all to be very comfortable. The rooms are all cleaned and restocked daily. A selection of breakfast cereals and bagels with great chicory coffee is provided every morning which is perfectly good but if you're looking for something more substantial then there are plenty of local places to get breakfast. I recommend Cake Cafe or Cafe Nero.
All in all, a fantastic place to stay. Thank you Phillip, David and Booboo. I can't wait to go back.
