It felt like home....
I loved tis guesthouse!! A person can stay here and spend the same amount of money as a hotel, but have more room. I stayed on the 4th floor and it had a kitchen and a loft. It is also clean. The bathroom were a little outdated but that was the beauty of it.
Unique Quality: It had a beautiful balcony facing Royal Street on the 2nd floor.
Directions: French Quarter
A funky taste of the French Quarter
Yowza! I loved staying here! I was with 4 girlfriends and I think a couple of them thought they were getting a Holiday Inn before we arrived. Boy were they surprised!
If you want to feel like you're "in" New Orleans, specifically a part of the French Quarter and not in a nondescript hotel in any city, usa, this is the place for you. Blake was a gracious host and very helpful with suggestions and of course, alcohol.
Unique Quality: Very eclectic in decorating. Nothing much matched, which was great as far as I was concerned. We had a 3rd floor, 2 bedroom, balcony room which was just completely fabulous!
The maid service was kinda hit and miss, although with 5 women showering and getting ready for their day and evening, I gotta say there was no lacking in the hot water dept. 2 a/c's going day and night, so it was a nice refrigerated respite from the hot, muggy weather.
If you have a problem with rickety, narrow staircases though, request a ground floor room.
$95 a night French Quarter 2-Bedroom apartment!
When I walked into this place I said: “This is the place you go to write the great American novel.” It was ever so tacky in a good way. It had storm doors that lead out to the street. So you could be sitting in bed, and people just walk by you. It’s a bit naughty, and very cool. About one of the beds is this weird crown-with a mirror in it. That’s all I can say about that.
You cant beat the location: one block to the water, two blocks over to the Square, and two blocks up to Bourbon Street in the gay section. LOVE IT!
Blake, the manger, has several different types of rooms in this cute courtyard complex. He is a hoot too: I had a cold and was making all sorts of noise. He went in his office and came out with Sudafed and a Costco size (***ing huge) bottle of Bourbon and told me to take them together and it will knock it out of me. Whollyshit, that and maybe my last breath! They have cocktails in the courtyard every day at 5:00pm, included in the price. So he know I missed them and gave me the bottle!
Unique Quality: Unit 2 is a 2 bedroom unit, and fondly refered to as the "Vatican." The bedroom on the right has a four poster gilded king-sized bed complete with mirrored crown and red velvet drapes draping from the crown. The Pope himself would be proud to sleep here. The left bedroom has a four poster queen-sized bed with sheer drapes. The bedroom floors are hardwood parquet and the living area and kitchen are imported St. Louis clay tile.
This unit is on the ground floor, and is entered into the living room from the courtyard. Both bedrooms have french doors covered by shutters that can open onto the street.
Unit 2 also has a loft with a full-sized bed above the kitchen, and a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room.
The sleeper sofa has a Seely mattress,
that claims to be as comfortable as a
regular matress...no "bar in the middle
of the back" traditional sleeper!!
To the left, is the loft over the kitchen,
with the full size bed...fun place to sleep!
Directions: SMACK dab in the French Quarter!
Best Place for a Group
The Bed and Beverage is like a B&B, but the beds are in comfortable old-fashioned French Quarter apartments and the breakfast is really booze around 4:00 PM. We were given so much refreshment that we did not need to go to a liquor store the whole weekend. The host was very friendly and gave great advice about places to go.
Unique Quality: The doorways to the building were obviously designed for horses, but had modern conveniences such as an elevator. We had two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa living room. The kitchen was a bit small, but had a full size refrigerator. For five people this was a perfect set up. Our building had a pool in the courtyard, but it was too cold to go swimming.
It is comes out to about US$20 - US$40 per person per night.
