wonderful place

4.2 on January 21, 2014

This place was wonderful. Quiet yet so close to all the action. The neighborhood restaurants were very good. Walking around the area shops was so fun and relaxing. Close to the trolley car to downtown for fun filled adventures yet very comfortable to relax if just wanted to absorb the New Orleans life and climate


Ideal way to take in New Orleans

Gracious hosts and gorgeous accommodations. Excellent location to magazine street and to the trolley cars. Beautiful neighborhood and parking was no trouble. Love this place!


mémorable

4.4 on August 25, 2012

The chimes est très bien situé, à qq pas du charmant tram pr aller en ville (20min).Quartier calme pr se reposer et flaner entre les magnifiques maisons. Jill est tres chaleureuse et à l'écoute, elle prépare le meilleur petit-déjeuner que je n'ai jamais connu avec des fruits frais, des pains speciaux et des croissants excellents! Son mari parle français , ce qui est un atout (en famille, les anciens et les jeunes ne maitrisaient pas la langue). Les chambres d'hôtes sont séparées de la maison principale et ont bcp de charme. Je recommande vivement, vous ne regretterez pas son prix qui reste raisonnable par rapport aux autres logements, le charme, l'accueil et le goût en plus!


Staying at the Chimes is like coming home

I grew up in New Orleans and miss it terribly. I miss the food, the architecture, the people, then entire vibe. From the architecture, the decor, the gardens and the friendly hosts, the Chimes is the quintessential New Orleans experience. The location is outstanding. The Chimes is in a quiet, uptown neighborhood yet is within a few blocks of the Magazine Street shops and dining as well as the St. Charles Avenue streetcar. Breakfast is outstanding. Fresh cheeses, fresh fruit, artisan breads and pastries and Community Coffee (the best there is). Jill always makes sure there is plenty of conversation and you find that you come as a guest and leave as a friend.


The Chimes was perfect.

My sister and I have stayed at New Orleans bed-and-breakfasts before with our mother, who died last year; we made this trip to remember her, and Jill made our stay at The Chimes wonderful. She's the consummate hostess and The Chimes is beautiful, charming, and perfectly located (near both Magazine Street and the St. Charles streetcar). We loved it!
