The Chimes is located in a residential neighborhood four blacks from St. Charles street, which has a trolley line and bus service, and three blocks from Magazine street, which has lots of restaurants. Our room was clean, roomy, quiet and well decorated. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was good - with lots of fresh fruit cut up, also pastries...

A charming, comfortable B&B in a beautiful part of town, walkable to the streetcar and to excellent restaurants, a short hop from the French Quarter. The owners are warm and welcoming with fascinating conversation over a convivial breakfast. The Chimes made our stay in the Big Easy!

Stayed here recently over a very busy holiday weekend. Owners were most cordial and helpful. Our room was quiet and clean with very comfy bed. Nice location in a quiet neighborhood that is only a short walk to transportation and restaurants/shops.One word of warning...transportation on NBA Allstar weekend is most difficult so plan your stay for another time !

I was travelling across the USA by train by myself and wanted to find somewhere at a reasonable price in a safe area of NO.

Comfortable spacious room, welcoming hosts, pretty...

The Chimes is a wonderful place to stay. Jill & Charles have cracked the code on hospitality. Beautiful place, great location, fabulous hosts. You can't go wrong with The Chimes. Tripadvisor is being a pain in the butt requiring 200 characters so I added this last sentence.

I am reluctant to share this gem because I want it available whenever I go to NOLA in the future. I can't give enough praise to Jill and Charles; they treated us like family. Jill gave us all kinds of tips about transportation, fantastic restaurants and nightlife that can only come from an insider. The breakfast was delicious every day....

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
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.
