Since it was the night before Christmas Eve,the parlor glowed with light from the tree and gas fireplace. Across the center hall the heirloom buffet and sideboard were set with delicate china and silver for the next morning's breakfast.
Our spacious suite, The Plantation Room, was furnished with a queen-sized Belmont Plantation bed and the over-sized antique armoire, faux fireplace with original mantle and oak dresser and vanity added to the authentic detail of the room. A separate adjoining room, with a double trundle bed, can be used as a sitting room or extra sleeping space.
The private bath proved to be an unexpected delight! Cindee Quick designed a space that captured the aura of a bygone era yet provided all the comforts and amenities desired by road-weary travelers. The crowning touch was the Battenburg lace shower curtain!
Southern Comfort has several other rooms available that have been restored with the same loving attention to detail. Each is equipped with a private bath and while not quite as spacious as the Plantation Room suite, are equally as enticing.
Host Cindee baked fresh pastries and served a superb Continental breakfast in the formal dining room. She used the leisurely breakfast time to help us plan our itinerary. With just a few phone calls she can arrange a full schedule, complete with every detail!
The central location of Southern Comfort is just a streetcar hop away from all parts of the city. You can easily visit the French Quarter, Garden District,Magazine Street or the Convention Center.
