About this property

The Laurel Bed And Breakfast

Adults-only New Orleans bed & breakfast in City Park, walk to City Park
The Laurel is a one-suite bed and breakfast with private bath and sunroom and private gated entry located in the heart of Mid-City. The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and the Endymion Mardi Gras Parade are both a 10-minute walk away. The French Quarter and Central Business District are just a 10-minute drive away. There is a bus stop and the street car (trolly) line within walking distance (5 minutes) which runs to both of these destinations. It is in a residential neighborhood and is only a 5-minute walk to City Park and The New Orleans Museum of Art.

We offer a continental breakfast of croissants, muffins, assorted pastries, orange juice, coffee/tea. Special requests for non-cooked items are welcomed (yogurt, cereal, etc).

Guests use the private entrance, which brings them directly into the sunroom portion of the guest suite.

Our rate is based on double occupancy. There is an additional charge of $30/person per night for more than 2 persons. The double size sleeper sofa in the sunroom is available for guest #3 & #4.

We do not allow smoking, candles, oil lamps, incense or any other flammable items in the house or on any of the porches.

There is plenty of on-street parking and off-street parking is available upon request.

The home is a beautiful 2-story stucco structure with a red Spanish tile roof. It is architecturally unique and interesting with its arched doorways and doors. The original structure is intact with very few changes to the original design. There are original wood floors and ceramic tiles which have been beautifully restored. The long center hallway serves as the perfect photo gallery for Eliot's photos.

The raised front porch and the front courtyard-style patio is wonderful and a great place to just sit and do nothing. The corner lot offers a beautiful view of the peaceful surroundings of the neighborhood.

Guests can enjoy City Park's Museum of Art, botanical gardens and new walking park.

5/5 Excellent

Location, Location, Location. I can’t say enough good things about this property. Our host was so knowledgeable about transportation, restaurants, music in the area. Laura was such a delight to talk to. She loves her city and it shows. The accommodations were far better than I was expecting. I loved our private sitting room off our bedroom. I’m almost afraid to say how good this was for fear of not finding availability next time we want to stay there. Can’t wait to come back.

5/5 Excellent
