Arrived refreshed from Nashville to our next B and B, 1896 O'Malleys. Beautiful old plantation home, decorated from the 1800's and right next to the trolley transport into Bourbon St. This could get messy! First things first though, washing our huge bag of dirty clothes and finding a gym. Clearly we have been too busy boot scooting in Nashville to …
... for this afternoon (getting too hot to walk far.) Also book for Swamp and Bayou tour tomorrow morning and Paddle Steamer cruise at night.
City tour well worth the effort. Toured the cemeteries - everyone buried above ground here (because of being below sea level). Families buy these mausoleums (above ground tombs) which are sold like real estate - prices vary from a few thousand $s for a very plain one up to $500000 for the fancy marble ones. They are set out like miniature cities ...
... brass instrument you could think of including a very large tuba. I haven't heard a tuba for ages. Ian got a bit bored so he went off to catch a couple of other acts, Royal Teeth and then the Jambalaya Cajun Band with special guest D. L. Menard. I watched Ms. Ruby Wilson's Tribute to Bessie Smith which was inspiring.
We had bought the official program for the weekend which contained some food vouchers which we hadn't used and so we decided to give them a go. Ian got ...
... had keys to a VW nailed to it. One had a book open on top of it; it looked really old and pretty cool and I thought probably would be meaningful to the person whom the tomb related to. However, when I peered over and could make out some of the words, it actually turned out to be one of the 'Twilight' books! Random! Laura had a great time taking photos of the interesting colours and shapes, and contrasting the cemetery with the backdrop of the city, despite the heat ...

The houses generally have a large front porch and a matching upstairs balcony.
Then we headed to the French Market, an open air, shopping pavilion. It reminded us all of the Pike Market in Seattle. There were a wide variety of vendors in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews 1896 O'Malley House Bed and Breakfast New Orleans
A Mid-City Marvel
If you want a B&B away from the madness of the
French Quarter, this is a gem. Brad & Larry have taken a diamond in the rough, cut and polished it into a sparkler. High 12 ft ceilings and a beautiful
center staircase lead to outstanding accommodations.
You guys helped overcome the humidity/rain with your great breakfasts, tour advice and above all,your dining tips. Christian's and Mandina's were outstanding, and within walking distance
Oh, if you still crave for the quarter, they are one
block off the Canal Streetcar Line. Ask about the
special streetcar pass, good anywhere in the city.
Great Place to Stay!
Very nice place to stay, Brad, Larry and Cody the dog were excellent hosts! Conveniently located from Bourbon Street, it is quiet at night. The cost was not much more than a 4 star hotel in the French Quater, and Larry and Brad are extremely helpful when it comes to what to do. Old World charm meets modern amnities best describes the house.
Accomodations were wonderful. Rooms are beautiful and you feel as if you are the only ones there. You can't hear anyone else. The convenience of the Street Car to see NO is great. The proprietors are the best. They go out of their way to make sure you have a perfect trip.
This B&B was awesome!
The 1896 O'Malley House is under new management. In 5 short weeks the current owners have completely redecorated the house. The beds slept wonderful! The newly opened Canal Street Trolley runs right past the B&B and makes getting around New Orleans so easy. You get a turn-down service at night with fresh dipped chocolate strawberries on your bed. They made some fabulous reservations for Sunday brunch. plus provided a wonderful breakfast: fresh fruit, muffins, cinnamon rolls, juices, coffees,etc. The service was great too. It was very relaxing and comfortable with the other guests. At about $100 per night, it was quite a treat in the Big Easy. We will definitely be returning and that will be our first place to call for a room.
Better than home away from home
This magnifcent house was a real home to us on our honemoon. Brad and Larry made us feel very much at home and cared for during our stay. We feel as if we've left great friends behind not just an address. The neighborhood is wonderful with a rich
Italian flavor, going back many generations. Don't miss Brocato's Ice Cream parlor.
Best B&B Ever!!
I can't say enough wonderful things about 1896 O'Malley House. We have stayed in many hotels/B&Bs in New Orleans over the years and this place beats them all hands down! Brad and Larry are great hosts, the accomodations are beautiful and the neighborhood is quaint and peaceful, not to mention well located. There is also a very freindly dog named Cody to make you feel right at home. We plan to make this our home base in New Orleans whenever possible.
Great stay at the omalley house
Our 3 night stay was amazing. The house was amazing and the owners were equally fabulous. They went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed. They also made everything easy with their book of suggested restaurants and maps of things to do around new orleans. I would highly recommend staying at the O'Malley House if you get the opportunity to go to New Orleans. If you go, please give their dog Cody some much needed attention.
1896 O'Malley House was outstanding!
My stay at the 1896 O'Malley House was fabulous! The house was absolutely beautiful! Brad and Larry were alot of fun and very helpful! I would recommend staying here to anyone! I can hardly wait to go back!!!
Experience a real neighborhood
We recently had a chance to be tourists in our own hometown and spent the night at the 1896 O'Malley House. It's absolutely gorgeous. So much detail in the woodwork, high ceilings, large guest rooms, etc. The new streetcar line (Canal St.) makes it easy to get to the Qtr too.
We love this place!
We have stayed at the O-Malley house three times and absolutely love it. It is beautifully restored and Kevin, one of the owners, provides great information about the history of the home. Speaking of Kevin, he is so friendly and helpful. He has GREAT recommendations for local restaurants in all price ranges. He goes out of his way to make sure your stay is perfect. We have stayed in 3 of the rooms and they all have 4 poster beds and many have jacuzzi bathtubs. The house is incredibly clean and well maintained and you won't find a better host in all of New Orleans.
