We booked this house to hold us and our wedding party for our wedding weekend. A very long story (a court order of sorts but who knows the real story) but the owner of the property canceled our reservation as we were picking up our luggage at the gate. I don't think the owner of this property understands the concept... More

It is easy to get caught up in the excitement of the French Quarter but if you stay in a place like Margaret Gardens you get to be blocks from the action but right near other attractions like the Lower Garden district and Uptown.

My girlfriend and I booked this inn based on the other reviews on this site, attributing the few negative statements to 1-time occurrences, and focusing on all the wonderful things other reviewers wrote about the property and the innkeeper, Eddy. We were so excited about staying here. Even paid extra for the Jacuzzi tub and larger room. Weird things started... More

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.
