I like staying in small guest houses with the friendly hospitality offered by the owners. I stay at my friends, Fig House while in New Orleans. It is in the Carrollton area.
This is not a recommendation. Do not stay at St. Ann/Marie Antoinette in the French Quarter. We were charged for a king room overlooking the quiet courtyard, and were given a beat up room with double beds(both headboards broken off the frames)...it was not anything like promised.
The whole place was rather worn..small dirty pool, no views, rude desk clerks, no satisfaction when we complained (but nothing else available in area---football game that weekend)
I don't know the exact price, since I told Staffan the honeymoon was entirely his to plan and pay for (hey, I just planned the whole wedding almost completely by myself, I wanted a break!). I think it was very expensive, though. I know Staffan said we got some kind of discount or package deal, though.
The innkeepers, Dale and Roy (no, not Rogers), are wonderful! Breakfast was always something new for me to try, and always something with a bit of local flavor. The first morning was a quiche with a crawfish sauce that was excellent! The second morning I got to try grits...didn't do much for me, though. Our last morning there we had Mosquito Toast, which is the local version of French Toast. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the rooms are spacious and gorgeous! See the travelogue for all the pics (I learned how to use the camera by taking lots of pics here)!
