Lovely and inviting rooms and backyard. Great conversation with host and fellow travellers around a generous breakfast table. Close to both bus and tram service. This is all all your B&B dreams come true!

My home away from home when in New Orleans visiting my Tulane student. Jill is a wonderful host, breakfast is always delicious and the carriage house accommodation is a particularly fun and unique experience. Location in the garden district is quiet yet close to lots of great Magazine Street eating and shopping, midway between French quarter and universities. If you...

What a fantastic trip from start to finish! Room 2 was lovely; especially when a vacation for me and my sweetie means relaxing- the amazingly comfy bed (8 pillows!) and stone floored shower were perfect! Breakfast was beautiful and Jill and Charles made us feel right at home with great stories and insight! Walking distance to so many shops and...

My husband and I stayed in guestroom #1 and could not have asked for a more pleasant stay. The room was perfect and roomy for two people, with a sitting room/tv watching area that made it comfortable to just stay in and relax. I also enjoyed the nice little courtyard for enjoying the evening breeze. If you're looking for a...

Your review offered some good points about safety in our neighborhood which is a question we answer often. This neighborhood has twenty-four hour security vehicles constantly traveling the streets with an available phone number to contact them. Thank you for posting such a detailed review. It was a pleasure hosting you.

This was our third stay at The Chimes over a 10 yr period. It was just as wonderful as we remembered. Each room has a unique character (we had the room with the loft and beautiful wooden stair). But the real bonus is having breakfast around a huge table with fascinating guests and Jill leading the conversation. We were able...

Always an enjoyable time at The Chimes. Very clean and comfortable rooms and the location is convenient to everything. Just a short walk to the St. Charles Ave. trolley line and to great shopping and restaurants on Magazine Street. Thanks, Jill, for another pleasant stay.

My daughter and I recently stayed at Chimes. This lovely and peaceful getaway in the Garden District is perfect - walking distance to the trolley, bus or neighborhood shopping and restaurants. Jill is a great source of referrals for almost anything you want to do, and has great suggestions regarding historic tours and other sites of interest. We will definitely...

Stayed at the Chimes on a mother/daughter getaway. Could not have chosen better. Jill is the perfect hostess, so willing to share her extensive knowledge of NOLA and accommodate our schedule. Breakfast was a treat in itself with the conversation around the table. We stayed in room 3 and loved having the private entrance, as well as an entrance onto...

For us, visiting NOLA without staying at the Chimes is like having a second line without a brass band. For this trip our family took over 4 of the 5 rooms. Half of the group had not been there before and all of us were charmed. We appreciate the comfortable rooms (our favorite is #2), the welcoming courtyard, the quick...

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
