In the unlikely event that we ever had the opportunity to open our own B&B, Jill and The Chimes would be our inspiration and the standard we would aspire to.
The whole experience - Jill's friendly welcome, her helpful tips and suggestions, our fabulous room, the peaceful and relaxing courtyard, the main house and it's location, the outstanding breakfast and the banter with fellow guests across the breakfast table (I could go on) - made our stay in New Orleans a very memorable one.
I'm not easily impressed or usually one for giving out gushing praise but, very occasionally, an experience comes along that simply deserves it - The Chimes was one such experience.
I'm struggling to think of a downside to balance things up. The only thing I can think of is that we've been spoiled and from now on all future B&Bs will be judged against the very high standards set by The Chimes.
Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a stay at The Chimes - you won't be disappointed.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Where you stay in New Orleans, matters. The Chimes is a hidden gem just off St. Charles Avenue in the residential Garden District/Uptown neighborhood. Restaurants, coffee houses and shops are within walking distance of this unique, private spot. The owners are on site with a singular goal: to make you feel comfortable and at home in their city. Five private guest rooms open to a courtyard that is beautiful, quiet and speaks of historic New Orleans. Queen size beds, shiny hard wood floors, private bathrooms, full breakfast, no stairs, French doors, stocked refrigerator and oh, so much more. New Orleans has cachet and when you stay at the Chimes Bed and Breakfast, you will feel it. ... more less
