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,

Really enjoyed staying at this beautiful mansion! Our host Hollie was very helpful and friendly. We didn't have alot of time but we found the walking tours she suggested very interesting and informative and also enjoyed visiting the French Quarter.Thanks for making our stay, one we well remember!

Thank you Hollie and staff for an wonderful 50th Birthday, turly an weekend we will treasue for ever


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'.

Magnolia Mansion was truly an amazing place. Hollie, the owner, was so knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely recommend this B&B.


Stunning in fantasy level majestic beauty and delightfully relaxing.

I loved my stay in this glorious mansion. Owner Holly Vest has done a wonderful job creating just the right mix of Old Southern class with comfort. I was greeted at the gate by the charming front desk gentleman (Henry?) who gave me a lovely tour of the mansion before showing me my room, which was upgraded by Holly, prior to my arriving. I had the privilege of meeting the lovely Ms.Vest who took time to chat on a personal level. and make me feel right at home. The location is ideally situated near St. Charles St to one side and Magazine to the other with easy access to the Quarter. I have already recommended Magnolia Mansion to all my NOLA loving friends and will definitely stay here on my next trip.


A great stay

4.4 on December 17, 2012

Staying at Magnolia Mansion made our visit in New Orleans very special. We actually stayed an extra night and got the opportunity so sleep in two of the beautiful rooms. The service was excellent and we felt as we were guests in someones home! We will tell our friends about Magnolia Mansion and we sure hope we will return some day!

Large theatrical rooms; great location; lovely management

3.6 on December 17, 2012

Very much enjoyed the quirky theatrical nature of Magnolia Mansion. The bones of the building are lovely and it's in a great location - close to the action but quiet. Large, comfortablr rooms but you have to be able to enjoy or simply go with the flow of the theatrical style, which may not suit those intent on formal elegance. Nice residential area for a walk to view the southern style homes. Your hostess Hollie is lovely and very, very helpful. As a solo travelling female, she organised me everyday, which I really appreciated. I couldnt get my head around the breakfast: plastic cups and paper plates. I can't do that in the morning and suggest you go out for breakfast. Plastic cups are the norm though in New Orleans which does take some getting used to. Two good coffe houses within walking distance if you're an Aussie or European in desperate need for what we'd term "good" coffee (often difficult to find in the US). Tram virtually at door - it was being refurbished when I was there, so better check if you intend to rely on it. Would visit again.
