Wonderful NOLA Ambassadors

5 on June 27, 2012

The best definition for "southern hospitality"? B & W Courtyards! Our brief stay (4 days) could not have been more enjoyable. This was our first time in New Orleans, and our first time staying at a B&B. NOLA is an amazing city: the food, the colorful neighborhoods, the music, the friendly people. After a jam-packed day of experiencing the sights and sounds of NO, it was especially nice to take the short walk to the "home" that Rob and Kevin prepared for us. The room was immaculate. (Somehow, each morning as we enjoyed the spectacular breakfast, our bed was made, fresh linens appeared and a bucket of ice found its way to our room.) Rob is one of the funniest people we've ever met. His stories are wonderful and his suggestions are always helpful. Kevin's breakfasts, although delicious, are miniature works of art, and were almost too beautiful to eat (but we did!). We came here on a friend's recommendation, and now we happily recommend the B & W Courtyards to you. It will be one of the nicest things you've ever done for yourself. Enjoy! Joe & Sharon


A truly amazing place

5 on February 01, 2011

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights in this wonderful b&b. The detail in the rooms were perfect, along with the beautiful courtyards. The hot tub was a treat every night and even with other guests it was very private. To top if off, the hosts, Kevin and Rob really treat the guests special and take better care of them than any place I have ever stayed. The breakfasts are perfect and Kevin makes the most amazing pastries and unbelievable fruit plates. The location could not have been any better for a stay in New Orleans. Never had any problem parking and Frenchman St and the Quarter were in a short walking distance. We had an absolutely perfect weekend and we have already decided that we will visit B & W Courtyards at least once a year!


Great stay

5 on December 31, 2010

My wife and I spent a week over Christmas in the Barbados Room, which is very quiet and comfortable and close to the hot tub which is a blessing on a cool winter's night. As others have emphasized, Rob and Kevin are great hosts, Rob the entertainer distracting you at breakfast while Kevin quietly leaves of preparing an excellent breakfast to clean your rooms and make the beds. Can't imaging a better place to stay in NO, very close to Frenchmen's and its great bars and music and just a hop, step and jump to the Quarter. Do try one of Kevin's excellent and affordable massages, too.


A really nice place to stay

4.0 on October 22, 2010

The B&W is a very nice B&B with excellent hosts and a great location close to the French Quarter. The room we had was a bit on the small side but came with a nice bed and 21" TV. It was nicely decorated. One comment worth mentioning is that we could hear virtually everything being said through the adjoining wall so it would be a good idea to ask about that if you need absolute silence. Nonetheless our neighbors were very quiet after 11pm, so other than hearing their early evening "exercise" we had no trouble sleeping at all. The a/c works great and the courtyards are splendid. While local laws prohibit B&B's from serving a hot breakfast, Kevin really puts a nice flair with something different baked every day. The plates they use are especially beautiful and Rob is terrific about participating in morning conversations and giving tips and recommendations. That morning hour was one of the highlights of our stay. We learned a lot about New Orleans over the 4 days we were there from Rob. He's not shy at all about giving his opinions and is really delightful and appreciative of your business.


Colorful Characters; Colorful Establishment

5 on October 13, 2009

Rob and Kevin are the perfect hosts for New Orleans. They know the French Quarter intimately, and have a well founded opinion on every establishment. Their advice is the lagniappe which comes from staying at their establishment. No one should fail to visit New Orleans; no one who goes to New Orleans should fail to visit the French Quarter and Marigny, and no one who visits these Districts should fail to stay at B & W Courtyards. Casey and Amos


B&W Courtyards is a unique and charming place to stay.

5 on October 10, 2009

My husband and I loved our room at the B&W Courtyards with the comfortable many-pillowed bed and hand-painted scene on the walls and a big armoire to put our things. The bathroom had all the amenities. Outside our door was one of the several lush courtyards surrounding the house with beautiful old fountains and that soothing sound of water. The breakfast is delicious - lots of good coffee or tea, fruit, biscuits and homemade granola. Breakfast is served in a more formal room that reminded us that we were in a very French city. Rob and Kevin are so hospitable and have great ideas about where to go in New Orleans and especially important where to eat.


The Best Place in Town

5 on October 10, 2009

If you haven't tried a New Orleans bed and breakfast, have we got a place for you. It's a few minutes walk fron Jackson Square in the Quarter. It is over in Marigny on Chartres and it is just like you hoped New Orleans would be. Lovely clean rooms imbedded among water gardens. Friendly, helpful hosts - easy to find and convenient to come and go. This is the 6th year we have stayed there! John & Rosa Hall of Tuscaloosa


Excellent Bed & Breakfast Near French Quarter

5 on October 10, 2009

A totally service oriented bed and breakfast convenient to everything New Orleans has to offer. This is a class act from reservations, room quality and amenities. I would not hesitate to return to B&W Courtyards and would recommend it highly. Jimmie Washburn, Realtor, CRS


Loved it

5 on October 09, 2009

My husband and I stayed at this charming B&B in Sept 2009 and we loved it. The city was HOT but Rob and Kevin were COOL. They were helpful in guiding us to good food and music places in the city and we hit a home run each time. Our room was cozy and clean and very New Orleans (in all the good ways). We even met an ancient fish called Vera. We highly recommend this B&B.


a gem
