1896 O'Malley House Review

Best suitable for those seeking a less touristy New Orleans experience, this elegant bed-and-breakfast is near the intersection of Canal Street and North Carrollton Avenue, an area that has seen multiple new restaurants open in the last several years. (It's also a good base for Jazz Fest.) The rooms are furnished with beautiful antiques, heavy cypress doors, hardwood floors, granite bathroom counters, and oversize windows with plush draperies. Some rooms include Jacuzzis. Take the nearby Canal Street streetcar for a quick ride downtown, or hop in a cab and take Carrollton to its intersection with the river for a streetcar ride down St. Charles Avenue.

    1896 O'Malley House Review

    Our stay at 1896 O'Malley House was lovely. The breakfast was delicious and extensive. Our room on the top floor was well appointed, clean and more modern than the house itself. Close to a streetcar, however, not the St Charles line. So, not as convenient as some of the other Garden District hotels listed on Fodor's.

    Lives up to its rep

    My son and I had a perfect time here. The house is beautiful, the hosts warm and funny and helpful. It is in a quiet spot but near to great transpo. And it is walking distance to Angelo Brocato's the best gelato in the states.

    Perfect in every way

    Fodor's review pretty much says it all - but must emphasize the great service and relaxed feeling to the place. Not at all stiff or stuffy like some B&B's. It's very evident that Larry, the innkeeper, loves this house and his guests. Also, everyone should have a dog as sweet and good as Cody!
