Burgundy Bed & Breakfast in New Orleans
Posted Sep 26, 2011 on Hotels
The best things about the Burgundy Bed and Breakfast Inn are its nearness to the French Quarter and to Frenchment Street's music bars, and its owner, Carl. Carl is a native of New Orleans or has lived there a long time, and he knows many good places to see or to hear music, and he is willing to make reservations. He also knows the history of the place, and visits with his guests. The Inn is really a converted two unit side-by-side house in a funky but safe part of town. It is within walking distance of the French Quarter and downtown, and once downtown one can take a trolley to other sections of the City.
At the time Carl was having trouble with his housekeeper, so our room was not cleaned or the bed remade when we were out. However, I understand that this was a exception to his usual practice.
We also liked the breakfasts, which were served buffet style. They included hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, dry cereal, pastries and muffins with various jams and jellies, and yogurt. It was a welcome change from many of the cheese and meat-laden breakfasts we had at other b&b's on our trip.
Overall, the place grew on us, and we would recommend it to others.
