After four nights at a corporate hotel in NOLA my girl friend and I wanted something smaller and more personal. From Tripadvisor reviews we chose The Antebellum for a really delightful stay with our hosts Keith and Art. Keith takes the antebellum theme to heart wearing period clothes within his immaculately maintained 19th century home that is in easy walking distance from the French Quarter but removed enough to be quiet at night. We stayed in the charming Rococco Room which, although the smallest, was extremely comfortable. The breakfasts of coffee, fresh fruit, pastry and a different egg dish each morning were delicious and beautifully prepared. Keith is very welcoming, sharing his knowledge of New Orleans history as well as his expertise in the concoction of vintage cocktails, love of old music boxes and a myriad of other topics. I really don't know how our experience could have been better and look forward to a return visit.
