As for the room, sparse was the theme. It had very little in the way of decoration and did not have a particularly ‘warm’ feel. But it was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. The layout consisted of two levels (one for the living room and another for the bathroom and bedroom). The living room area had a couch, several chairs, a bar (minus the alcohol) and a TV. Note: the TV did not have any cable channels. The bathroom was small but modern (plenty of hot water) and a little out of place in that the rest of the room felt a lot older. The bedroom was spacious but as plain as it could possibly be. It had an armoire with a mirror (which would not stay up so it was pretty much useless) but lacked any other even meager attempt at decoration. No big deal, but it took a couple of minutes of getting used to. The bed was very comfortable, very large (king size) and had lots of pillow.
It happened to be unseasonably cold in New Orleans at the time of the trip, so the window heating and air conditioning units were necessary to warm the rooms. One minor glitch, the knob on one of the units was broken and I had to remove the cover and do some improvising to turn the knob to heat.
There wasn’t much breakfast in the b&b. As far as I could tell, it consisted of muffins, juice and coffee. It was setup in the entrance room on a little table and I don’t think many guests took advantage of it...I ate at different restaurants both mornings.
