The Rathbone Mansions are my BnB of choice. I live here in NOLA and when I have friends or family in town, I always have them stay at the Rathbone. I love the Rathbone because it is true to the Mansions period. It is rare when one can stay in a 165 year old piece of the cities history. I celebrated a birthday at the amazing pool side enjoyed delicious BBQ and stayed in a beautifully appointed historic suite. The things that I would count on as a constant are; (1) great rooms kept clean and true to period, so you can enjoy the history. (2) a truly amazing one of a kind staff, led by Pat. (There is no better ambassador to this city then she.) (3) yummy food and a fair rate. (4) if there is ever an issue, bring it to Pat and company, no doubt they will make sure to resolve it and keep your stay an undeniable pleasure.
