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.

... and before long we were right back on it, me more than most. We hit up a few cool bars and this time it was my turn to throw up all over. The rest is a blur of dancing, drinking and Bourbon street games. All a lot of fun. But boy would I pay for it the next day. The hangover that followed was a monster and myself and Cherry were both man down for most of Saturday. Eventually the girls got us up and we ...
... was running late. Ok, no problem. We will visit with some of the guys. That was fun, now time for lunch. NOT...... Lunch has now been moved to 12:45. Maybe we will get lunch today and maybe not. We shall see. We sat with Abby and Allen who both work for Delta Sigma Phi National Headquarters. Lunch was chicken picata, my favorite, and it was worth the wait. After lunch, we heard all about the plans they have for the next ten years and they made some awards ...
... at around 4:30 and got set up in our camp spot. We got a recommendation for dinner and headed to Charles Seafood. It is Cinco de Mayo, so they had margaritas on special. We passed and I had a couple of the local beers. They were a bargain at $2.45 a beer. Also on special were a dozen oysters, for $5.95. Since I like oysters, I figured that would be a good start. Cheryl is not an oyster fan, so I thought a dozen might be too many. Turns out, I was able ...

Wed.... A full day of walking in the French quarters. Kathy provided us with some historical landmarks and we took numerous " beverage" stops enroute.
The streets and homes are so ...
... so as long as everything up to your shoulders was under water you could stay warm, we raced each other around the pool had a swim for about 1 hour then headed back to the room to watch bones , Jake has become addicted to watching bones or crime shows, so we ordered a salad to the room for me and Jake ate gummy rings and fairy floss for dinner. That when the news came on and we heard that people were getting robbed and stabbed 30 times right near where we ...
