We stayed in the Bates room; main floor, front of house. The room was spacious, clean and very well kept. It is nicely appointed with a chest of drawers, wardrobe for hanging cloths, sitting chair with end table and large end table between two full size beds. Lighting included one overhead, two lamp stands and one lamp for the large end table; the room also has three large windows for natural light. The room also includes its own bath with fresh towels daily, an overhead fan and air conditioning.
The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable; we were continuously asked how our day was join and what did we think of the places we visited. The staff also had great local knowledge of neighborhood restaurants.
The breakfasts were nearly perfect. A large variety of fruits was available every day. The surprise each day was the kind of baked goods that were available; cobblers, breads, coffee cakes and more were delicious.
The house has a very relaxing atmosphere with a spacious sitting room on the main floor and a hot tub (kept cool during the day) in the back yard. An outdoor sauna is also available. Plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy breakfast or just find a little quiet space later in the day.
To top things off, the location is two blocks from the wharf and very close to local restaurants and of course, Duval Street.
