Travel Blogs from New Orleans
Just emerged from five days of luxury in the beautiful Southern city of New Orleans. The highlight of my stay was probably where I stayed - a gorgeous old American mansion in the historic Garden District with stained glass windows and a wide verandah (pronounced 'porch' in the US). Apart from the peace and tranquility of Sully Mansion, New Orleans …
... and back into her wheelchair as the other admitting attendee held back the woman’s dog from biting the other. It took a third staff member to finally get her in her chair before we could start the admission process. At about 2:00a we were in the ER waiting to see a doctor. The hallways were lined with homeless drunks who the police told to come to the hospital since it was in the 30s and they had no where else to go. Seemed like an abuse of ...
... we had to spend 4 days in was a bit of a **** hole. The bed was a tiny double that buckled in the middle, the tv was tiny and had only a few channels, the room was tiny with no where to hang clothes, the bathroom was terrible with a blocked sink, no toilet lid, shower head spraying almost 1 single jet of water, it was one of the worst hotels we've stayed in on the trip and it was one of the most expensive, I guess you just pay for the area. Once we got settled in ...

After dinner we thought we might check out Glen David Andrews at dba. But it was too early and there was a brass band performing outside (maybe Young Fellaz Brass Band?). They were really good so we contented ourselves watching them for a bit then realized we were tired and ended our night early.

It’s a huge building, with 48 steps leading up to the front door – each step has the name of a state and when they were admitted to the United States. At the time of building, Alaska and Hawaii wasn’t part of the US, so they were added later to the top step. The building has a viewing platform that is many stories high – one of the highest ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sully Mansion Bed and Breakfast New Orleans
My fiance and I had the Sully Mansion experience during this Fourth of July Holiday Weekend (July 1st - 3rd 2005). Given its price ($175/night) we thought we would have a grand experience. We were WRONG. Upon entering the gates, we noticed the front porch, which could definately have used a cleaning. White shows dirt very well and dirty chairs, walls, etc were prevalent. Entering the house, the parlor was quite nice and inviting. However, that is where nice and inviting ended. There was no one to help bring our bags up the stairs (and no elevator for disabled folks). Entering the room, we found ourselves in a big room full of nothing. It was HOT in the house and the owners did not have the air conditioner on, so that we were entering a cool environment (important for New Orleans heat). The door to our room had a crack in it! We could see the other side of the door through the crack! Not acceptable. The decor -- while historic -- was mismatched, creating a jumbled look and feel. The plumbing was AWEFUL -- the shower ran hot, then cold, then hot -- with very little pressure coming from the shower head. The closet doors were not hinged properly --- not closing well. The refrigerator room had a light that was out. And the bathroom tub was AWEFUL (full of caulk and dingyness). I was disgusted, especially since we had to prepay for the Special Event clause. Otherwise, I would have left the facility. The hosts were not hosts. The owner did not give us a tour of the house -- nor identify where breakfast was to be served. She just gave us 2 sheets of paper and said "let her know if we needed anything else." And last but not least, the breakfast was NOT lavish (as it claims on the website). While this facility is in a lovely area, it is not in a "lovely enough condition." to warrant its prices. Try Elesyian Fields Inn instead -- the couple traveling with us stayed there and I envied them all weekend.
I am a frequent business traveller, who normally stays in hotels. I stayed here in March 2005 when I attended the CTIA Wireless show in downtown New Orleans. It was great - clean, comfortable, super breakfast, and above all, welcoming and good fun. The owners have paid attention to quite a few of the "little things" that make all the difference in a place like this.
Very, very nice. I highly recommend it and will stay there on my next visit to New Orleans. The hosts know the city well and have some great suggestions on where to go.
Best Location in New Orleans
The Sully Mansion is a great find. In a historic neighborhood surrounded by beautiful homes. I really enjoyed staying here. I found my hosts to be most accommodating. Their recommendations for restaurants and activities were right on. They even went as far to book all my reservations for me. I needed something pressed and they not only found a dry cleaner who could get it done last minute, but they took it for me and picked it up.
This is a place you want to stay for the service as well as ambience.
A must stay in New Orleans
This is a great place for group gatherings as well as individuals. Great location that can't be beat. A charming and endearing house that makes you feel right at home. We visit New Orleans often and plan on staying at the Sully Mansion everytime we do.
What a great place!
This B&B is fantastic. We wanted to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter so we chose the Garden District. It was perfect! Easy to get places and the hosts were so helpful. They gave us great recommendations for both restaurants and just things to do in general.
Our room was beautifully decorated and the front porch is a great place to just relax. We will definitely stay again when we go back to New Orleans!
An absolutely amazing house that is in relatively good condition. We stayed in the front bedroom, second floor facing Prytania; a large and well-fitted bedroom (huge, soft bed) and large bathroom. The first few nights it was cool enough to sleep with the windows open... and the street noises were soothing. The top floor is not yet centrally air-conditioned, but there is a large window unit in the room.. although it was a tad loud.
A great place to stay
The Sully Mansion is a great find in the midst of the Garden District.
We had an incredible time while we stayed there. The rooms and house are beautiful, with just the right mix of old and new. And you get to stay in one of those big Southern Mansions that you see in New Orleans.
Our hosts we incredible. They are generous and nice and provided us with great recommendations of things to do and places to eat.
We would highly recommend it for anyone who wants the charm of old New Orleans and friendly, well informed owners.
Stayed there in the second floor front room. (facing Prytania). The room was huge and decorated with beautiful antique furniture but not very clean at all. (Example: socks that fell out of a suitcase onto the area rug were soon covered in spider legs! Eeww!) The bathroom wasn't that great even though it was very large. The plumbing was pretty bad (but somewhat to be expected in an old home) since it took five minutes to get hot water through the taps and the toilet hardly flushed. The tub though was absolutely FILTHY!! There was terrible mold in the drain and it was dingy beyond words! Now that there is no excuse for. I can give it a pass on being cold and drafty (there was only a window unit heater and 3 very high ceilinged rooms to heat) but I can't overlook not cleaning a bathroom up. In fairness, I've heard nothing but good things about the place from others. But I don't know how recently they stayed there or if it was just the room we were in that was less than great. (especially for the price) It's under new ownership though and they said it was slow going renovating things because they wanted to keep as much as possible original. Well- good for them. I can overlook the falling plaster and gas fireplace that doesn't work but clean your bathroom and vacuum up. Good luck to them- they seem like nice people.
Sully Mansion a MUST!!
If you want the charm of the Garden District at your doorstep, the Sully Mansion is a must! Enjoy the old New Orleans charm of this magnificent home with the party atmosphere of the French Quarter a short street car ride away!
