Fodor's Expert Review Chimes Bed and Breakfast

1146 Constantinople St., New Orleans, Louisiana 70115, USA See on Map Fodor's Choice

Cameron Todd

In a roomy Victorian house on a quiet street in the Garden District, guests will discover charming, sophisticated guestrooms and a beautifully landscaped courtyard. The residential neighborhood is quiet, with shops and restaurants close by on Magazine Street.

Many parades pass by St. Charles Avenue in this neighborhood during Mardi Gras, and this area is a pleasant way to enjoy the festivities in a more local-feeling, family setting than the French Quarter.

room

Guest rooms are large and bright. Many have antique features like four poster beds and chandeliers. All rooms have sitting areas and private entrances that open out onto the courtyard.

bathroom

Large, tiled bathrooms have bathtub shower combinations or spacious walk-in showers.

dining

Breakfast in the sunny dining room includes eggs, pastries, fruit, coffee and tea.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The friendly innkeepers are happy to accommodate dietary needs if you let them know in advance of your stay.

drinking

The courtyard is a great place to relax with a cocktail after a long day exploring town. Purchase wine, beer, and spirits to bring back to the B&B from Martin's Wine Cellar (8-minute walk).

LOCATION

Getting Around

This area is easy to get around with a car, and the B&B provides free parking. The St. Charles streetcar line is about a 5-minute walk from here, and can take you further uptown or towards the French Quarter.

Restaurants

Nationally-renowned Shaya (6-minute walk) serves the best of Middle Eastern comfort food. La Petite Grocery (7-minute walk) has a classic Nouveau-French approach to food with excellent, hearty entrees to choose from.

Bars

Milan Lounge (4-minute walk) is a casual neighborhood dive bar, and The Delachaise (10-minute walk) brings romance and craft cocktails in a charming setting.

WHY WE LIKE IT

It has none of the kitschy or run-down qualities you might associate with a B&B; instead, this property is impeccably clean, bright, and spacious. The beautiful neighborhood is close enough to attractions, local shops, and award-winning restaurants.
