You're greeted with stately columns and regal galleries. Inside, the charm of antebellum New Orleans surrounds you. This grand Greek Revival house of the 1850's exudes both the elegance and decadence of old Creole Louisiana. With soaring 14-foot ceilings and intricate, hand-crafted cypress trim, your room is a respite from the bustle of the street. Some feature 4-poster king beds, others queen and full sized beds. All have private baths. An intimate courtyard invites you to relax in our soothing spa surrounded by tropical greenery and yet you're close to the action. Just six blocks from the French Quarter, a 15 minute stroll to the non-stop energy of Bourbon Street. Fine restaurants, famous jazz clubs and sidewalk cafes are literally a short walk from our front door. Royal Street Courtyard, where you're at home in New Orleans.

We stayed at this B&B in January 2010. We had the chance to stay there again in March 2014. Phillip and David are the best. They know what to see as a tourist and directions to get there. Also they know the best places to eat and what to order. Oh yeah the B&B is good too. About 6 blocks from the French Quarter so it a quiet neighborhood. An easy walk to the quarter with lots of entertainment along the way.

This is a great place to stay while in New Orleans. Phillip is very accommodating and the location is great. I plan on staying here again next time I visit New Orleans!

Phillip and David are excellent hosts, and generously shared their insider local knowledge with us. The inn is beautiful and obviously well loved, rooms are very comfortable, and the front porch is the perfect place to enjoy the neighborhood. Great quiet location, walking distance from the "happening" areas.

The hosts were very nice and personable, and extremely helpful. This is a nicely restored 1830 home, and very welcoming and comfortable.

Second visit to New Orleans and second stay at the Royal Street Courtyard. I can't imagine staying anywhere else! Phillip and David ARE New Orleans to me...friendly, helpful, and fun! This time we had the upstairs front balcony room and it was FANTASTIC! It is now my favorite room, so I will have to remember it for future. A friend of mine had the other balcony room across the hall, so we shared the balcony and it was perfect! We even enjoyed some beautiful weather, so cocktails on the veranda were just lovely. Everything about the Royal Street Courtyard is OUTSTANDING to me, but I appreciate the relaxed atmosphere, friendliness and NOLA tips more than anything. Granted, the breakfast items are not gourmet, but being in New Orleans I am not looking to stay at the B&B for meals. Coffee and a quick nosh in the morning gets us out the door and into some wonderful neighborhood restaurants (Cake Café or Who Dat Coffee Café) for something more substantial...and Phillip's restaurant tips are the best! For that reason the dining is also OUTSTANDING. They are the best hosts ever and I recommend them to all of my friends. One of these days I'm going to get several of my friends there at the same time and we are going to reserve all of the rooms at once! A girl can dream, can't she?! You won't be sorry if you choose this B&B when you are next in NOLA. ENJOY! :)
New Orleans, LA (MSY) 18 miles
Directions from New Orleans International Airport: Take I-10 East into New Orleans. Stay in the left most lane and continue onto I-610 East to Slidell. Take exit 3, and turn right onto Elysian Fields. Continue for approximately 2 miles and turn left onto Dauphine Street. Go three blocks to the first stop sign and take a right onto Spain Street. Proceed one block to Royal Street where we are on the corner of Royal and Spain Streets. Parking is free and plentiful and on-street! (Unbelievably, half the taxi drivers at the airport do not know the streets of the French Quarter-- even with a million tourists a month heading there. So be prepared to direct them.) I suggest calling a New Orleans based cab company, United Cab. They sit at a cab stand across the street from the Airport. Call them at (504) 522-9771 and they will drive around and pick you up relatively quickly. They will know the way...
