Historical Traveler Reviews McMurphy's New Orleans
Great experience, despite IVAN
We came to McMurhy's(Maggie) and we got the feeling that we would never want to leave again.
Than came IVAN and we wanted to leave, but could not leave and Maggie took very good care of us.
She incorporates all good things about hospitality, an absolute must for everyone traveling to New Orleans.
We want to come back one day, but in the mean time we tell all our friends about this place
Just the right level of everything
This was just a terrific place to stay. Just the right level of conversation, service, food, drink, hospitality; friendly but not into your business. Very nice people. Except for relatives and close friends homes this is the most "fitting" place we have stayed in NOLA in 20+ years and many visits.
" Only place to stay in New Orleans"
What a wonderful, relaxing place to stay! The hospitality was superb and Maggie made my stay extra special. Only place to stay. Baerbel Merrill
The ONLY place I will stay in New Orleans
No one is prepared for the pampering, relaxation and convenience that awaits you at McMurphy's. Maggie makes you feel as if you have your own mansion in New Orleans with a staff to take care of your every need. The beds are roomy and comfy like the Four Seasons, the decor beautiful, the porch is stunning, and something you want to bring back to reality when you get home to sip cocktails on or read. Simply said, if you want a slice of heaven, stay there!...We LOVE it.
Hospitality that comes from the heart
when you arrive at Maggies you know that you have come home.true hospitality can only come from the heart,and when you meet Maggie,you know thats where it comes from.
with Maggie there are no strangers ,just friends she hasnt yet met.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else!
It's like having family in New Orleans. The kitchen is the heart of the home and there is always something amazing awaiting you. If you're on a diet, the temptation to indulge in Maggie's baked goods would be too much for you--cookies, cakes, you name it. So skip the diet when you go! My husband is an early riser, and he loves having morning coffee in the kitchen with Maggie as she creates something wonderful for breakfast. As for me, I love to sleep late in the wonderful big bed, with the luxurious sheets. I first coaxed my husband to McMurphy's to see their beautiful porch. We were designing our dream house and I couldn't convince him to put a porch on the Italianate structure. Maggie steered us to other beautiful Southern homes in New Orleans, and we enjoyed our tour. After our visit, and seeing first hand how relaxing a front porch can be, Maggie and I turned him around. We can't wait to go back. It's more than a place to stay. It's a warm hug from a welcoming Southern Lady.
From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave Maggie will do everything possible to make your stay absolutely wonderful. Maggie and family make you feel like you're one of the family. Our stay consisted of wonderful evenings on the porch chatting about anything and everything to waking up with the smell of muffins from the kitchen to the absolutly terrific breakfasts Maggie whips up. The room was beautiful, comfortable and very clean. Maggie will even guide you to the hot spots in New Orleans.
When you get there, say hi to Maggie from Kurt & Joyce.
The place to stay in NOLA
Maggie and family are the best hosts we have ever had in our stays at B&Bs. During our first trip she ensured we went to and ate at the best places in NOLA. As we left, we felt like we were part of the family. On our second trip, we were truly treated as family ;) Once you've stayed at McMurphy's - you will not want to stay anywhere else. Oh yeah, the breakfasts are to die for as well!!! We love you, Maggie!!!
Home away from home
We could not have chosen a better place to stay on our short trip to New Orleans. McMurphy's was WONDERFUL. The owner, Maggie, made us feel so at home that we hated to leave. It felt as though we were leaving our family. And, the bed....well, I have already inquired as to how to replicate the comfy, cozy bed. Everything from the welcoming morning coffee to the evening cocktails on the fabulous front porch were just perfect. If you go to New Orleans and don't stay at McMurphy's, you are truly missing out on the real Southern hospitality. Aleisha G., Denver.
What a wonderful time
From the moment we stepped out of the cab, Maggie exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Oak Room. What a beautiful room. This was the first time we stayed in a Bed and Breakfast, and I believe that she has spoiled us. The room, breakfasts and hospitality was amazing. Sitting on her porch and having drinks with her was like being with an old friend.
If she makes her cookies you are in for a real treat.
We can't wait to go back and see Maggie and her family again.

... met some rather unsavoury characters, but it was quite exciting to be in a real police station. The desk sergeant thought it was hilarious that we had lost two pairs of glasses in as many weeks, and even funnier that the lost glasses were a replacement to the original lost pair. However, he did give us a recommendation for dinner and so we forgave his mirth and left the building!
... on the corner below us and it was just so perfect.
Played a quick round of golf at a private club, English Turn. I remembered playing this course back in the late 90's, a great layout Jack Nicklaus design. Neither one of us played stellar, but we enjoyed being on the course again. Sorry, no scores were recorded, we each had a few 'do-overs just to make it fun'.

If you have never been to New Orleans, I am telling you that you have to come here. This is one of the most exciting places I have ever been. Alan thinks there are more talented musicians per square foot in this city than anywhere else on earth!
We are on a home exchange and are staying in Marigny, which borders the French Quarter, but it feels like Surry Hills - Bohemian, trendy, great food and coffee. Our place is about 5 ...
... a lot like turkey…until it cools down a bit then it goes canny chewy haha. Lunch was lovely, and with full bellies we headed back onto the road and towards New Orleans. The traffic was absolutely hellish as we pulled into the metropolis that is Nawlins, especially as it was nearing rush hour. Laura did so well in navigating the maze-like roads, and people were driving like absolute nutcases, so I was very impressed with how she handled it; this is the ...
... out the city area we headed down along Bourbon street into the French Quarter. We came across a large park area with a lovely garden and a great looking church out the front with some musicians busking around it, we took some photos and checked out the area. There was an interesting building behind it that was a brewery called Jax. There was lots of horse and carts getting around the area as well. We went down onto the Mississippi and sat in front watching paddle boats go ...
