... I do not know, but they fought over them as if they were the finest food in the world. We had the opportunity to hold a young alligator if we liked; his snout was taped shut so we were safe enough. As I held him he started to actively squirm and crawl up my arm; I didn't want to drop him, so quickly passed him to another person who seemed to have a gift for holding--and calming--young alligators. So now I have worn a python, held an ...

Historical Traveler Reviews B&W Courtyards New Orleans
Been There Since the Get-Go
We have been staying with Rob and Kevin (hosts) almost since their opening--another B&B was sold out for a particular week-end, they suggested B&W, and we've been going back ever since AND recommending it to everyone we know traveling to NO. The location is fabulous, away from the hustle and bustle of the FQ, yet within walking distance and/or transportation to just about everything.
Rob and Kevin are extremely informed about restaurants, museums, sightseeing--and will go over and above to make sure their guests get the full NO experience.
Next trip I might just sit in the courtyard, sip some wine, read a book, and listen to all of the wonderful water fountains--why leave??!!
If your travel plans include NO, this is definately the place to stay.
THE place to stay in New Orleans
Five time repeat visitor - wouldn't stay anywhere else in New Orleans.
Great location - steps from the Quarter - plush rooms and tucked-away courtyards with dripping fountains. Over an elegant breakfast, catch the gossip and great recommendations on "off the beaten path" restaurants, shopping, and local hotspots from the hosts you'll just have to meet for yourself.
The B&W Courtyards captures the essence of this unique city - a real find.
Great place to stay
What a great place to stay. Lovely surroundings, attention to detail and quiet quarters. The owners seem to know everything about the city, so one does not waste time figuring out details: just let the owners assist you in arranging whatever your needs. I wouldn't think of staying any where else in the city.
What a jewel!
B&W Courtyards is a wonderful spot just far enough from the French Quarter to avoid the crowds and noise, but close enough to walk to everything. Our hosts were warm, friendly and extremely helpful. I stayed in the cozy and charming Back Carriage House with it's bright colors and oh-so-wonderfully comfortable king sized bed. The secluded courtyards with their lush gardens and babbling water fountains were beautifully maintained and a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the city. There was something beautiful to observe around every corner. My colleagues stayed in the suites located just next door, and the decor is just magnificent. I would recommend this oasis to anyone making a trip to New Orleans!
Definitely a Favourite!
Back here in the northland, folks are asking about my vacation, but I find myself dwelling as much on the virtues of this wonderful b&b as I do on the city itself! Rob and Kevin are incredibly gracious hosts, and their b&b felt like home--only better, since I don't eat breakfast in such a beautiful dining room, nor do I have the sounds of fountains floating through the window as I fall asleep. Rob's suggestions were always perfect (just thinking about lunch at Mr. B's makes me hungry) and Kevin is one of the sweetest people I've ever had the pleasure to meet. I'm already figuring out when I can go back, both to the Crescent City and to the B&W!
outstanding in everyway-----terrific folks---wonderful B and B--Both Rob and Kevin have a great sense for the wonderful things in life.

Nice place and great suggestions!!
My husband and I recently visited New Orleans for the first time. We stayed at B&W Courtyards in the Faubourg-Marigny area. Definitely do not be put off by its outward appearance!! It is a very cute and clean B&B located in a very residential neighborhood. Its proximity to the French Quarter was excellent which allowed us to walk pretty much everywhere. Our innkeeper Rob (Kevin was away on family business) was very helpful with eating and activity recommendations. Our favorite place for seafood is GW Fins! Fabulous!!! We also managed to have a dinner at Commander's Palace which was also wonderful. We'd both definitely recommend B&W Courtyards and the city of New Orleans to anyone...
We'll never stay anywhere else.
We have stayed at the B & W Courtyard two years in row and plan on going back. The owners, have always made our stay memorable and wonderful. Great for New Orleans newcomers! They gave us extremely helpful advice and recommendations that were never wrong! Highly recommended!
Cozy and Friendly
We recently had the pleasure of staying at B and W Courtyards. The atmosphere is utterly charming, as were our hosts. I highly recommend this B&B, the cozy environment made our trip so much more relaxing and enjoyable.
Our first visit to New Orleans
We recently stayed at B&W Coutryards in New Orleans. If your idea of heaven during a holiday is to go behind a private facade and see inside, this is the place for you.(Don't be fooled by the outside) When you get inside you will be astonished at the quaint courtyards with water features and the lush plants that are growing in abundance. The rooms scream individuality and are loaded with character. Your hosts will trip over themselves to make sure you are happy and breakfast is served in the elegant surroundings of their dining room, while breakfast is freshly prepared for you in the kitchen. We were newcomers to New Orleans (and only visited the USA once before) but the welcome and care and attention we received at B&W Courtyards made us feel like family.
