Loved it
Have nothing but good things to say about this place. We really loved the pool and jacuzzi. A couple of minutes walk to Bourbon street. Parking was easy and free on the street. Would definately stay here again.

Very good 8.0
Very friendly staff and very helpful.
Staff was great. Very cool place to stay. Parking wasn’t the best. Beds were very uncomfortable. Walking distance from the French Quarter. Bourbon street was five blocks down. The only reason that I probably won’t stay again is because of the beds.
Adam, us3 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Amazing hospitality. I was afraid this was going to be an actual B&B where the rooms are close together but it was just somewhere to lay our heads for the night. Rathbone blew us out of the water! Only a 15 minute walk to the French Quarter, the staff was so friendly and put our backpack in the room when we were away, they emailed me check in instructions when we couldn’t check in before 3pm, and our room was not close to others which gave us a lot of privacy. I highly recommend and we will stay again in the future!

I'd stay again
My only issue with my stay is i booked a balcony and didn't get one and wasn't reimbursed for it, but everything else was good. Clean and close to everything.

I totally loved it. I had an after-hours check-in & check-out and they were very accomodating.

Mardi Gras
Our stay coincided with Mardi Gras to our enjoyment! Very close to everything and we were treated to a parade right down our street during out last day. Our room was huge and very nice. I definitely plan to return when the city is not completely crazy with party people. It would have been nice to do some sightseeing.

Would stay here again
We chose this hotel for its closeness to the French Quarter but it was also on the route for the Rock n Roll Marathon which was an added bonus. We checked in late and everything is digital so it was very easy. They had nice, simple breakfast options which were enough for us. There was also an In ground pool and hot tub. We liked that this hotel was an old converted house which had the original character of the house

NOLA Trip.
The mansion was a good place to stay while visiting NOLA. It was quite a few blocks to the main attractions. Probably a good 10 blocks to main French Quarter. Felt safe walking.
Regina, us2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Pleasant stay but could improve.
It was a neat, convenient place to stay! They want everyone checked in at the same time which is a little hectic. Although our room was clean, our mattress cover was worn out and wouldn't stay on our mattress. I would stay again because it was close to the French Quarter and seemed to be in a safe area.
