Sully Mansion

2631 Prytania St., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70130, USA

Famous 19th-century architect Thomas Sully built this handsome, rambling Queen Anne–style house in 1890. In the foyer, light filters in through stunning stained-glass windows original to the home. Though not the only such accommodations in this neighborhood, this B&B stands out for its attentive service and lovely 1940s furnishings. The home is on a tree-lined street one block from the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line and close to Magazine Street shops and museums. Delicious breakfasts are made with local, farm-fresh ingredients, and include such delicacies as crab cakes with poached eggs and sourdough blueberry pancakes. Weather permitting, guests enjoy breakfast in the tropical courtyard.
