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.

... to see the 10pm show of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (if you don't line early you don't get in)
WOW!! What an experience. Preservation Hall is a music venue founded in 1961 to "protect, preserve and perpetuate Traditional New Orleans Jazz". While there listening the the Jazz we honestly felt like we had stepped back in time enjoying the tunes and the crowd just as it would have been in 60s.
What a perfect way to spend our first night in New Orleans.
... I still had the migraine and it was the worse two and a half hours behind the steering wheel of my life. I thought I was going to die. We actually did have to stop so I could throw up because I was so nauseous :/ But shortly after I felt much better! After my shift was up I pretty much slept the rest of the ride.
Everyone had their shift, but last was Bryan... He would be the one to get pulled over in the first 5 mins behind the wheel. Luckily we ...
... just what is going on so I could check on what game was playing as well as other things like where to go to see the Katrina devastation and how to get there. The smartphone is truly a very useful gadget. The rest of the we checked out some places we have seen like St Louis Cathedral and around town as well as picking up souvenirs. We enjoyed super at Bubba Gump's which was fun. We took some time at PJ's Coffee house in the French Quarter just resting and headed back ...
... a bowl of Gumbo, a few beers and of course a Hand Grenade, New Orleans most powerful drink. They wouldn't tell us what was in it, all we could taste for sure was a watermelon flavor. But we loved the design of the glass, it has a long handle that is easy to hold on to and doesn't get the drink warm.
... crawfish cheesecake and some gumbo. A live band consisting of two guitars, a violin, and an accordion was playing, and they were singing French bayou stuff...pretty entertaining.
In the end, it took us around 14 hours to make it to the hotel in the heart of New Orleans. We finally konked out at 11 PM in the midst of heat and humidity.
Tomorrow we make the final journey home...cross those fingers for the car to make it!
