It’s always hard to leave the Chimes! We recently returned to New Orleans after several years away, and it was so comforting to find that Jill and Charles are still the most exceptional, warm and knowledgeable hosts we’ve met in our years of travels. They...More

We have richness in our lives because of the people who gather at our breakfast, like yourselves. It is you who bring the stories and experiences contributing to the morning "salon" that gathers over a meal. We thank your for remembering us and for returning...More
5 Stars? Only 5? The Chimes deserves at least 6!

Oh, my....I don't know who you are but this review touches the core of the Chimes...the heart of what we strive to be. It may not always be possible but when it is and it's recognized the harmony is heard. Many thanks to you.....
Chimes B&B was a wonderful place to stay. It was nice to live in what felt more like a home than a touristy hotel downtown or something. The hosts were wonderful, helpful, and excellent cooks! Rooms were very comfortable and charming, and the house has...More

We can only hope that every predicted hurricane will pass with little disruption as did "Nate". It turned out to be a warm night for the courtyard party that took place. Your adventurous spirit came through when you decided not to cancel. Thanks for taking...More

Thank you for reserving the Carriage House, Room #1, at the Chimes which now has two queen size beds. No longer are the stairs an issue for those who want a suite. You are a delight to have on our property and the breakfast table...More
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
