We loved this place. It is extremely beautiful and it is a remarkable value for a hotel this attractive in New Orleans. The neighborhood is also quirky and fascinating and although just out of the Quarter, not at all inconvenient. Our impression was that Cleo, the owner-manager, is an extremely nice and very interesting person. She is, however, more than a little absent-minded, which, I think, is part of her charm to some of her guests and an annoyance to others. We never saw her be rude to anyone, but I suppose it is possible that if people get angry at her, conflicts could develop. She was gracious and sweet to us the whole time. And the people she hires make sure that the rooms and grounds are immaculate.
