    This is my favorite place in New Orleans - comfortable, quaint and affordable.  The owners are very friendly and welcoming.

    If you stay here, book the room with the haunted bed in advance (I forget the name of the suite).  They dont make a big deal about it, but every night about 3AM the larger bed will violently shake.  

    The location is close enough to hop on a trolley to the FQ.

    The house is beautiful inside and out! There is a Walgreen's right across the street (gotta love convenience), a trolley stop between the Walgreen's and the house (even more convenient), and the Innkeepers are extremely friendly and hospitable. It is clean and elegant, but still welcoming and homey. The food is delicious, the towels are soft, the beds are comfortable, and the rooms are spacious. I will always stay here when I visit New Orleans!

    STUNNING! My girlfriend and I stayed here before we could move into our new apartment and it was such a great experience. We wished we could just live there. Definitely stay here if you're coming to the city to visit. It's in the heart of midtown which is perfect if you really want to experience the city. You'll feel safe here too, they have CCTV monitoring the street and Jason and Larry are always around if you need anything. Seriously give it a try (if you can even get a booking!) and you won't regret it.

    Need I say it? Fabulous.

    The O'Malley is beautiful! The restorations are traditional but in a very comfortable way. It feels like home- only elegant. The rooms are clean and welcoming, the beds comfortable, and the jacuzzi tubs perfect after a long day walking the city. The porches are perfect for a lazy cocktail before you catch the too-accessible street car.
    ...Oh yes, location. Stellar. In MidCity, at the Canal junction to either street car to the cemetaries, City Park or FQ. Theres a Walgreens, grocery and numerous small local eateries within blocks. Even better, is that even though your in the heart of the city, and so close to everything, you don't hear a bit of it. It's a quiet spot without so much as a buzz from the street cars.
    How can it get better? The hosts. Their friendly and knowledgable. They know more about the city and history as well as it's happenings go and finest restaurants. Not to mention, they make a killer breakfast! They're down to earth, and have the sweetest dogs ever. Rest assured- the dogs are well behaved and NEVER go upstairs. I wouldn't even be concerned with allergens- the place is so clean you barely even know they have pets!

    Last but not least!? The prices! Pricing is very fair, between $130-$200 a night (of course depending on the room, duration and demand). Excellent considering the hospitality, natural benefits and free breakfast!

    Well First of all the house is gorgeous. The rooms were amazing, and had an iPad that had app that gave you info on all of the places in New Orleans. It was nice to plan our trip from our bedroom. But if an iPad isnt your cup of tea then talk to the host. He knew everything to do. If you wanted to have a nice relaxing weekend or wanted to party Bourbon street style he knew all of the spots to hit. The breakfast was also AMAZING. His blueberry bread pudding was worth getting up at 9 am for. The house is less than a block away from the street car that takes you straight into the french quarters. So you get to experience NOLA without having to hear drunk 21 yr olds every five minutes. I highly recommend everything about this place.

    Great. Except for the location. It is a long walk to the French quarter. And the cable car is convenient but slow. The BnB itself is well appointed and maintained. If only it were closer to town it would be 5 stars - but location is (almost) everything.

    This is the place to stay when visiting New Orleans.  The house is beautiful and comfortable.  The Canal Street Street car is a block away and takes you right to the French Quarter.  City Park is walking distance,and there are several great restaurants within two blocks.    We had delicious homemade breakfast every day.  Larry is a very gracious host.  And let's not forget Cody and Porter, the house's lovable Golden Retrievers.

    They're #1 on TripAdvisor and it shows. The house itself is grand, pristine and really something to behold. The ceilings are soaring and I felt like more of an elf than I usually do, since everything was just so...big. Some might say ostentatious, but probably not since they're not sure what that word means. I do though, and I think this place was tastefully extravagant. Like Designing Women. Classy and southern. If you want to stay in party central, keep looking, this is not your place.
    I stayed in the O'Malley suite, at the top of the big staircase. I know people must have been getting in at all hours, but I didn't hear anything and slept soundly in that king bed. The room was very spacious and comfortable, and the jetted tub in the bathroom was an excellent touch. You know what my favorite part was though? The bath towels smelled good. Seriously. I've stayed at so many hotels and B&Bs, and the towels always smell like some gross industrial cleanser. These smelled like the beach. It seems like a trifling thing, I know, but it made such a huge difference.
    The streetcar that traverses Canal is right across the street, quite conveniently. It should be noted that the streetcar is quiet, so it's not like you're near the elevated portion of the subway in the Bronx. You can ride the streetcar into town and not have to worry about renting a car or dealing with the ridiculousness of driving/parking.
    Larry, the host, was extremely friendly and welcoming. Breakfasts were good, nice to not have to worry about where to go for breakfast, getting there, etc. Plus, we got to meet the other guests at the table. We met some Australians on holiday who were completely awesome. They left us a note and some Cadbury koalas when we checked out, how cool is that?
    Overall, I can't imagine a better place to stay in New Orleans. It's far enough from the Quarter to be comfortable and quiet enough, but not so far that getting there is a big hassle. Also, Mid-City has some cool spots, like Parkway, where you can get a great po' boy. You'll pay the same amount that you would at a big hotel, but get a completely different, and great, experience here.

    Genteel Southern hospitality. Larry welcomes guests into his lovingly cared for home. The reviews are well deserved.

    I recently stayed here for a week with a few coworkers while working at a conference in town, and so glad we did. The house is beautiful and comfortable. Each suite is tastefully decorated with big comfortable beds, ceiling fans, desks, power strips and all the amenities you need. (If you run low or forgot some person items, a large drugstore is within walking distance.) There's complimentary wifi for guests throughout the house (may be weaker in some rooms). The shower pressure is good. The entire house is kept at a good temperature (i.e., cooler than outdoors but not icy like the convention center).

    The owner and innkeeper were very friendly, caring and attentive without being intrusive. The daily coffee, fresh fruit and hot breakfast gave our team a great start to each busy workday. In the evenings, there were beers, wine and a lovely porch where we could unwind. Just a note: There are two dogs in the house. They're very well behaved, but the owners/innkeeper will keep them out of the common area if you're not a dog person.

    The location of the house is very convenient for getting to the convention center, parks, shopping, dining and other popular tourist destinations, but just far enough from the party scene, which is perfect IMO. I would stay here again when I return for business or pleasure.

    Literally not a negative word to be said about this B&B.  Very accommodating for our wedding needs, and were completely pleasant the entire time.  Breakfast was amazing, the staff was courteous, and we had an amazing wedding day thanks to this!

    Agree with all of the positive reviews.  The staff is very helpful - lots of great advice on how to get around the city.

    Our only issue was with the breakfasts.  Not surprisingly we did not want to get up early while in New Orleans.  The second day we came down around 9:30 (breakfast is served until 10) and were served meals that were "stale."  Clearly the eggs benedict had been made for those who ate at 8am and then kept warm for later arrivals.  The muffin was rock hard.  Whereas our first morning we were down at 8:30 and the breakfast was outstanding.  After that we came down earlier.

    Great, great stay. Larry and the innkeeper were wonderful and very accommodating. I had a late check in due to flight problems and they still met me at 10pm to show me around. The breakfasts were delicious (seriously - bourbon bread pudding?! Yum!), coffee was strong and good, and the room was adequate. As a single traveler, I got the most budget-conscious room (McNair), which perfectly met my needs. One comfy bed, couch/daybed, desk, closet, bathroom. There were also a high-end brand shampoos/body gels to use. My one complaint was that there was not a tub drain stopper. However I'm sure they would have given me one had I asked.

    Regarding the location, yeah it's not in the French quarter, or downtown NOLA. However, the streetcar stops literally 1/2 a block from the B&B and costs only $1.25 to ride. Very easy and cheap, and comes every 15 minutes or so. To get from O'Malley to Bourbon St took about 20 minutes on the streetcar. Honestly, I appreciated staying a bit away from the bustle of an urban center. It felt very safe!

    Definitely a B&B - the owners sit and chat while you eat your breakfast. They were pleasant and conversational, and informative to a first time NOLA traveler.

    Overall, would stay again!!!
