The house very beautiful and very clean. Sometimes in older homes you find that it is not very clean or updated but that is not the case with this B&B. The Breakfast was also very delicious. The owners were very nice and informative. Thanks for the experience.
Found this bed and breakfast last minute for a stay in July. Think we ended up with smallest and basic room. It did the job, we needed somewhere to stay and shower, free parking, quiet neighborhood. We were surprised at the very small tv, but we really didn't need it that much. Bathroom was small, shower was even smaller but seemed fairly clean for the most part. We didn't eat breakfast here, so can't comment on that, but we were shown were to go if we desired.
What a lovely bed and breakfast. The room was wonderful and the breakfast was extraordinary. Nancy gave us great suggestions on places to visit, restaurants to try, and the best walking route to the French Quarter. We would love to return to New Orleans someday and we will make sure to stay at Auld Sweet Olive again!
Right outside of frenc quarter. Small but clean rooms. Very friendly staff. Suggested a poboy from little grocery next store. Had a shrimp poboy there for only $6.00 that was wonderful. Ate all over New Orleans so it was great for a night staying in.
Charming accommodations, delectable breakfasts, and a delightful hostess . . . one fabulous get-away weekend in New Orleans! My husband and I stayed at the Southern Comfort Bed and Breakfast over Labor Day weekend. The inn is located on a quiet street in the Garden District and within a short walk to the St. Charles Avenue streetcars. We thoroughly enjoyed the Plantation Room – large, clean and comfortable, with a side parlor. The hostess, Cindee Quick, is not only a great chef, but she is also very knowledgeable on New Orleans: best restaurants, best sites to visit, and best way to get there from the B&B. We look forward to another visit to Cindee’s inn, and we highly recommend it to anyone who is seeking a relaxing place away from the city’s hustle and bustle.
Our weekend stay for our first anniversary was amazing. We loved the southern charm and the bananas foster waffles one morning were amazing. Ashton's is within walking distance to many tourist attractions, city park, the French quarter, etc. Karma and Patrick make you feel right at home! We'll definitely be back!
I had a very enjoyable stay. This B&B is fairly centrally located, making it easy to walk or take the street cars to most of the New Orleans attractions. I particularly liked the secured parking. I parked my car Sunday and did not move it until I left on Wednesday. My room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water for a shower. That works for me.
Safe, quiet, convenient location. Loved having breakfast in the charming dining room every morning. Beatriz and Rita make you feel like you are a part of their family. I would definitely stay here again.
As soon as we walked in the door the owner made us feel more than welcome. It was like we were just staying with an old friend. She sat down with us and asked us what our plans were and then helped us map out some things to do and even made suggestions of who to see and where to eat. She also took care of making a special dinner reservation for us. She was always friendly and asked about our day in the mornings and took the opportunity each morning to help us rehash a plan of attack on the city. The house was also super close to the street car which made everything easy-breezy. The one thing I absolutely must rant about is the food! This lady can cook!!! I still dream about her breakfasts!!! All in all, we had a wonderful time. And it was definitely all because of Southern Comfort B&B!
If there was a 6th star that would be my rating. If you miss the opportunity to stay and enjoy this Great plantation it will be a great loss for you, The rooms and food are excellent. The staff are professional in every respect. This is what the old South stood for in respect to hospitality. It was my wife's 70th birthday and boy was she happy. We will go back!!!! Jeff & Glenda
Four blocks to the French Quarter ,the open market or the trolley station. Everything was clean,nothing needed repair. Back yard has a garden ,pool and hot tub , just like the pictures.Free breakfast , For the money , it's as good as it gets.
This place is authentic New Orleans. If you're looking for a cookie-cutter, sterile hotel room or a cutesy b&b, this is not it. The rooms and lounge are decorated with stately antique furnishings. Our room opened out on to the balcony that wraps the building where we could have our coffee. The bed was very comfortable. We hope to be back!
My husband & I stayed for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. I booked the wrong dates (totally my fault) but Mary & Hugh could not have been more gracious - gave us another room to stay in and were just fabulous even though they were not expecting us for another couple of days. The room was very clean and breakfast was great. I also enjoyed the drinks available at all hours - New Orleans in August is very hot - and cold beverages are always welcome! We used the parking lot and it was very secure. We walked everywhere the entire time and never felt unsafe or like we were too far away from anything. We really enjoyed Mary's suggestions on different places to try as well. The only complaint my husband had was that we have never stayed there before - we will definately stay again!
I stayed at the Lions Inn for a birthday trip I took to New Orleans. The Inn was absolutely gorgeous, had a great location, and was really tucked away, even though it was in the heart of the city. My room got upgraded, which speaks towards the customer service. Ed remembered how my dog was uncomfortable in front of other dogs and was sensitive about that...incredible!!
Stayed in the cottage for two nights. So clean and cozy. The morning breakfast was so delicious. Will definitely be coming back. Such nice hospitality. Thanks guys. :)
I have waited a month to let some time settle the bad taste Banana Courtyard left in my mouth. If you are a "fix-it" or maybe "fly by the seat of your pants" traveler, this B&B might be for you. My boyfriend and I found things lacking in the Mardi Gras room and the service..odd. The rooms were very clean. I think certain things missed the mark. For instance - there was some delicious smelling New Orleans coffee in the room, with powdered creamer and coffee mugs. But - no spoon or stir sticks to be found anywhere. There were loads of fast food napkins crammed into one of the drawers. I had been hoping to have that coffee while we waited for the kitchen to have the required 30 minutes heads up that we were coming down for breakfast. But - nope. They just didn't quite have their act together. But that leads me to the weirdest thing. They request you put in a 30 minutes notice before coming down to the kitchen. I really dont get why they needed 30 minutes to heat up a croissant. That's what it was both mornings. I was really thinking it would be worth the wait and was told that the baked goodies provided in the morning were from a "local bakery". I asked the guy where they came from and he named a local grocery store. Well sheesh. It was really awkward waiting on the guy to run out a croissant for each of us - scorching hot and inedible for 10 minutes. They said there would be fresh fruit too, but I think all they had was apples - like, grab an apple and leave. It wasn't homey at all. If you're not going to provide a comfortable setting for the guests in a timely manner, or have them wait 30 minutes after waking up to eat, why have the "breakfast" in your title at all? Like I said, it was bizarre and I couldn't help feeling like I was staying at a finicky grandparents house instead of a warm, homey b&b that provided an array of non-cooked breakfast items (New Orleans law).
The neighborhood is great, right next to the french quarter with a lot of nice restaurants and cafés. The room was very comfortable, the bathroom very clean with towels. The pool and garden was very charming. Delicious breakfast every morning. And the owner was very welcoming. We'd definitely go back there.
My wife and I spent four days with Cindi in August. Coming from the Northeast culture, we found the hospitality to be a treat. The house was beautiful and our room comfortable. The diversity of the menu exceeded our expectations, and the service was outstanding. If we ever return to New Orleans we will definitely make reservations at the Southern Comfort Inn.
I absolutely LOVED staying at Banana Courtyard. Great location, fantastic hosts, and the place itself is almost indescribable. The antiques and decorations were unreal - you could stay there for a year and not see everything that they had to look at. My room was very clean, and breakfast was great (I was in the Cannonball room with that massive old bed). I have stayed at other b&b's and this one is at the top of my list. If you like 5 star brand new hotels with generic everything, you'll hate this place. If you like eclectic places and antiques and can appreciate older historic homes, you'll love it. I will definitely be staying here on my next trip!
We booked our stay on the mansion based on the white room alone. This was our 9 year anniversary trip and our first trip to New Orleans so we wanted it to be special and memorable. The mansion itself is unique in all the right ways. On our first night the only problem we had was that the bed was uncomfortable. As we shared this with the owners Jim & Lauren they went above and beyond to make sure that our trip was excellent. They were amazing and our stay that evening was flawless. Jim & Lauren are wonderful people that will go out of their way to make sure your trip to New Orleans is all that is should be. I highly recommend the Fleur De Lis Mansion to you, you will not be disappointed in any way.
As international students we needed a central B&B in New Orleans for the first few nights. The Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast is very clean, has good AC (important in the hot summer months) and the breakfast is really tasty. The point I liked the most was the kindness and helpfullness of the 2 owners. Whatever you need, they will fix it! I can just recommend the Avenue Inn, it is the best choice in New Orleans - even the StreetCat stops in front of the house, so you can get to important places quite easily.
My fiance' and I stayed at The Green House Inn for our first trip to New Orleans. We wanted to do something different than just another hotel room and it was completely worth it! The room we had was extremely nice with its own nice sized bathroom and private entrance to the pool/hot tub. What made the trip truly remarkable was the staff. Every time we ever had a question about where to go to eat certain kinds of food they always had an answer for us. They recommended some of the best restaurants to go to and the best tours to do while your there. They went above and beyond for us one day when they saw we were having a hard time finding a certain creole sauce and they went out of their way to find it for us! We had such an amazing time staying there and it really does feel like your own personally get away especially when your hanging out by the pool. The commute to the trolley is not far at all, maybe a 10 minute walk which was really nice and saved us a fortune on cabs. The staff did such an amazing job showing us where everything was on the map and we wouldve been lost if it hadnt been for their help. If your looking for a nice romantic getaway in the Big Easy then this is the place to go! I know we cant wait to go back!!
As B&B owners ourselves, we definitely enjoyed meeting Monica and her husband, discussing the details of the business. The mansion, the grounds, common areas, as well as the suites were immaculately clean and impeccably designed. Breakfast was plentiful, delicious, and beautifully presented. The owners did a fantastic job transforming this historic mansion into a comfortable and relaxing place for the guests without detracting from its historic ambiance. The location is perfect to visit New Orleans as well as plantation homes such as “Laura’s plantation, “Oak Allie “, “St. Joseph” , and many other gorgeous antebellum homes in the area. We most certainly recommend “the Canal Street Inn” to anyone visiting New Orleans and the surrounding area!!!
