Satisfied experience

4.6 on February 15, 2014

The staff was very kind and friendly. The room we booked was upgraded at no extra charge. We were told it was an outside room and we would be warmer inside the mansion because of the unusual cold weather. Everything was very clean and beautiful. The breakfast was casual eat at your own leisure. Options were yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal or breakfast sandwiches with a lot of choices for sweet breads. It was very comfortable to eat at your own convienence. It was a short walking distance to the trolley that made it nice as well.


Excellent place to stay,

Exceptional Experience

4.0 on January 17, 2013

Being our first visit to New Orleans I wasnt sure what to expect. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the Magnolia Mansion became a huge part of our journey. It was our home for 3 days. The house itself was sensational. Its authentisity, its character and appeal made our stay. We couldnt have hoped for anything better. Every morning we looked forward to our breakfast, it was simple easy and a great start to the day. Hollie is AMAZING. She went out of her way continuously to make sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. She was happy to share many tales of the Magnolias history with us, and had a thorough knowledge of New Orleans. Nothing was too much trouble for Hollie and her Staff. We would truly recommend the Magnolia Mansion to anyone who would love to re-live the past of the 'Old South'.
