Everything was perfect

Went there for my fiance's 41st birthday with 2 friends. They stayed at the O' Malley Suite and we stayed at the Colonel Parker Suite. We were greeted by Brent who walked us through the house and the rules as well as all the accommodations we were welcome to enjoy. Also gave us a brief background on the house and introduced us to the cutest residents of the house Parker and Jackson, the friendly furry friends. We loved staying there and using the street car to get to the French Quarter. I loved walking around the old house and enjoying the art, architecture and impeccable decor. We felt so at home as if we were guests at a friend's beautiful home. We got along wonderfully with the other guests and both Larry and Brent had alll the recommendations we needed to have a great time our first time in New Orleans. The breakfast was divine as well, and it was the only place I found that included a full breakfast. Everything was clean and comfortable. I have absolutely no complaints. Thank you guys giving us a memorable first bed and breakfast experience and New Orleans experience. And to end the trip on such an amazing note, Brent made my fiancé BIRTHDAY CUPCAKES on our final morning! You can't get that kind of awesomeness everywhere. We cannot wait to go back!

Awesome place to stay. New years eve 2014-15

Everything was great. Good food, great suggestions for things to do. We took a helicopter tour while we where there and you must do that. Also did the swamp tour, go to that spring summer or early fall to see alligators. About the Bed and breakfast. Do not hesitate to stay at this place. We will stay here again. Breakfast is awesome sitting around the bog table and being served while visiting with all the others staying here. It's funny talk to others about where you are from and telling stories of your day in new Orleans. This place is very quiet and seems to be in a safe part of town. You can hop on the tram and it's a 10-15 min ride to the French Quarter as we parked our car and never really needed to take it anywhere. We rode the tram with a day pass to just about anywhere you want to go. Call now and book your trip!! You won't regret it.

Everything about this B and B is perfect! We loved our comfortable room complete with a jacuzzi tub. We slept very well because the house is in a quiet location. The breakfasts were superb each morning with a different hot entree served each day. The staff are friendly and helpful and always willing to suggest a good restaurant or give directions. The location cannot be beat as it is a very short walk to the Canal Street streetcar. We look forward to staying here again and will recommend it to our friends and families.

wonderful stay!

Everything exceeded my expectations. Larry has a wealth of knowledge about the area and helped us get the most sightseeing in during our stay!

Fantastic Food, Hosts, and Location

The O'Malley House is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. The breakfasts , which included fruit each day, were unique and well plated. There is a guest refrigerator which is always stocked with wine, beer, and soda. The hosts are very personable and reccomended great places to eat as well as information about the area. They make the guests feel at home. They are located within walking distance from the Canal Street Trolley Line, which can take you where ever you need, so you can park your car for your stay. This was our second stay at the O'Malley House and we plan to stay again.

My husband, daughter, and I really enjoyed staying at the O"Malley House. The house is beautiful and the hosts are fun, casual, and hospitable. I would stay there again if I go back to NOLA. The location was perfect as a base for us to go anywhere we wanted to go. I highly recommend the 1896 O'Malley House.

The O'Malley house is perfect for couples who want the French Quarter close by, but want to get some quiet time as well. Larry is a wonderful host, the accomodations are super comfortable, the area is close to many great local restaurants, and it's a short cheap taxi ride to the Quarter. You can't go wrong here unless you want to be in the loud chaotic rush of Bourbon Street, then this isn't your place.

1896 O'Malley House was a wonderful suprise. The rooms were spacious and quiet. Larry our host was fantastic and really made us feel at home. The location in Mid-City is perfect. You could walk to local restaurants or hop on the street car across the street for a quick trip to downtown.
