Historical Traveller Reviews of Sully Mansion Bed and Breakfast Hotel

New Orleans with love. .

from JojoMiami
Sully Mansion, in New Orlean's lush Garden District, is a wonderful old Victorian mansion filled with antiques and modern art. We had a huge double Queen room on the second floor that was really fit for a queen, and Sully's innkeepers, Nancy & Guy Fournier think of everything to make your stay a real pleasure. We are early risers and invariably, they had gotten there before us and coffee was waiting on the table right outside our door.
Then there was breakfast. . Nancy cooks on the weekends and all the guests sit around the dining room table set with china, linens and napkins folded to look like fleur di lis!!! Sat. morning the menu was pecan French toast. . absolutely luscious. Sunday we were treated to crepes filled with ricotta cheese and topped with strawberry puree and whole huckleberries. Unbelievable. I only had room for two pieces of Nancy's blueberry crumb coffee cake and two cups of coffee after hat one.
Next time you are in New Orleans, don't miss this wonderful b&b. . the location is great (you're right down the street from Nicholas Cage and Susan Sarandon's houses!) and you can walk to Magazine Street with it's wonderful little boutiques.
We highly reccommend!

We have been to New Orleans many times and this is by far the best place that we have stayed in. Guy and Nancy are to be commended for opening a business in New Orleans after Katrina, but that is not the only reason to stay at the Sully Mansion. Stay there because it is a great place to stay, a beautiful home (with stained glass and art on the walls) in the beautiful Garden District, with so much nearby. The rooms are very comfortable with all the amenities of a hotel, plus the charm of a beautiful home. Guy and Nancy are full of suggstions for things to do and places to eat. All of this and a great breakfast too. We had an early flight and Nancy packed us a breakfast to eat on the plane!

No place like home

from JonFB
We travel to New Orleans about twice a year. After tiring of the pigeonholes, we decided to change our approach. Staying at this place was what we wanted.

Conveniently located between the Quarter and Audubon Park, we found traveling between the two rather easy. We were a couple of blocks away from Commander's Palace, which is even better when one can walk there and back. Two blocks away from St Charles, where transportation between the Quarter and back is easily available (cab, bus or car). Magazine Street, also two blocks, filled with shops, restaurants, etc.

The house is a New Orleans icon with a special history of all its own. It is a sense of privilege to come out and see people either taking a picture or drawing a picture of the house. The porch is an adventure all its own and deserves to be enjoyed, either sipping a cool drink or eating crawfish on newspaper.

The rooms are spacious, clean, quiet and authentic. There are all the 'normal' amenties as well. Coming home and walking up a staircase to our room, passing stained glass windows, and original art is something truly appreciated.

Guy and Nancy are 100%. They take their business seriously and wanted to make sure we felt welcome. Whether a bite to eat in the morning or breakfast at 'our' time, to giving advise and directions to all of what is New Orleans, they let one enjoy the good times and easy living the town deserves.

They also create a friendly atmosphere that encourages visitors to share amongst themselves. A nice way of sharing experiences and advice as well. Will stay there again next trip.

B - a must stay

from Teeka-7
My daughter and I came to visit New Orleans for a week. The Inn is in the Garden District, just a few blocks from Magazine Street and great antique shops and restaurants which we enjoyed exploring on foot. There is ample safe street parking.

From the moment we arrived, Nancy and Guy were so helpful and gracious. We stayed in two different rooms over our stay and they were lovely, quiet, roomy and contained all the amenities. If we needed something, all we had to do was ask.

Nancy gave us tips on great restaurants, music, sights not to miss every morning at breakfast (continental.) The day I left I had a very early flight - coffee was made and breakfast to go was ready!

It is just a block from St. Charles.... The trolley is not running yet so I was glad we had a car to get to downtown and the French Quarter

I will definitely stay at the Inn again and am recommending it to all my friends.

Just a note - I believe the other review was when the Inn was owned by the prior owners.

Gracious Hospitality

from AvondaleLady
Sully Mansion is a charming and welcoming B&B in the heart of the beautiful Garden District of New Orleans. The owners/hosts, Nancy & Guy, are delightful and interesting people who make sure your stay is trouble-free and comfortable. The home itself is well-furnished, and features interesting artwork from local artists. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished. A hallway chest of drawers holds any toiletry one might have forgotten, along with hair dryers, irons, etc. The honors bar is fully equipped - even including New Orleanians' favorite drink, Barq's Root Beer!

Mornings one is greeted with the smell of fresh-brewed coffee, and a hot carafe or two appears magically on a hall table for those of us who need that first-thing-in-the-morning cup. Breakfast on the three days we were there was bountiful -- juice, cereal, pastries, thick-sliced bacon, fresh fruit, with Nancy's delicious French Toast and Cajun Bread Pudding Breakfast Casserole making for hearty eating over the weekend. And, all of it served as my grandmother would have, on her finest china. Table conversation with other guests was lively and interesting.

We loved sitting on the front porch with a cup of coffee in the morning, and a glass of wine in the evening -- even being entertained one evening by a live band playing some great jazz as well as '50s-'70s music at a fund-raiser in the neighborhood! We were disappointed when the band quit playing around 10pm!

Nancy & Guy have obviously fallen in love with their adopted city. They know all the best places to eat, including those usually only frequented by "locals". They are within walking distance of Commander's Palace and a short distance to great shopping on Magazine Street.

Our room was comfortable and convenient and we had a delightful view of a beautiful downstairs garden. Although we had a little trouble with the water pressure in the shower, we were no less impressed with the Sully Mansion, and will definitely go back whenever we can. Having grown up in New Orleans, I was delighted to find this little jewel in the city I love. Bravo, Nancy & Guy, for supporting local artists and for embracing a true New Orleans lifestyle!

Sully Mansion: The Heart of New Orleans

from MinnesotaPoet
This is a wonderful place, a real haven in New Orleans. It's a beautiful old mansion that has been perfectly renovated. It's not fru fru at all, but many wonderful touches.

The hosts, Nancy and Guy (rhymes with "key") are wonderful. In four days we must have asked them more than 30 questions about places to visit, operating hours, restaurants, music venues, etc. They were totally wailling to help and each time were right on the money.

New Orleans is an incredible city to be in right now: so beautiful and still so broken...but on the mend.

Independent businesses, like the Sully Mansion, really need all the support they can get at this time, so do them--and yourselves--a favor: stay there!

Sweet Little Mansion

from crazeebeautyfl
We just returned from New Orleans, where I was looking into Tulane University. Tulane set us up with Sully Mansion, where we were treated like family. Our room at the Sully Mansion was beautiful and huge. We had an entire extension for a bathroom that was a hallway with a vanity and a wardrobe which had a gorgeous view of the backyard gardens and led to our cute private bathroom. Breakfast was a smorgasbord of delicious foods, fresh fruit, cereal, eggs, bacon, and king cake! Guy and Nancy knew exactly where to send us for music, shopping, and food! It was just a short walk to Magazine St. and an even shorter walk to St Charles where the Mardi Gras parades were! Of course, there is always the satisfaction fo being able to mention to one another in the streets, "lets head back to the mansion." ; ) Having decided to go to Tulane, we will definitely be renting more rooms at Sully Mansion in the future.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the New Sully Mansion from April 21 to 26. And to make a long story short: Now we know what it means to miss New Orleans. We had a romantic and great time. The facts:The Sully Mansion is located in the Garden District (safe area!), surrounded by huge oak trees an wonderful nice houses. The mansion itself is a perfect example of southern living: high ceilings, wooden floors, tastefully furnished rooms (incl. breakfast room and the huge hall) and a nice porch with a view. The house has a snug atmosphere and we felt home from the very first moment of our stay. The guestrooms are cosy as well, clean and quiet (just the "Esplanade" is al little dark). And the best: Nancy and Guy - the innkeepers - are simply wonderful ! Their service is excellent, they realy care for their guests and if you need any advice, they will surely help. So if you want to feel and breathe the big easy, stay at the Sully Mansion!

New Management

from Luv2SeeThings
Sully Mansion's a beautiful home, ...right in the garden district, away from the noise of Bourbon St and close enough to Magazine. Beautifully decorated, and a veranda in which to have a glass of wine outside if u choose to relax in the atmosphere. This is a GREAT choice in which to stay instead of a typical hotel. Gee & Nancy are excellent innkeepers ( so hospitable )......will stay there again indeed

B in NOLA!

We just returned from a wonderful week (6/29/05 - 7/6/05) at the charming Sully Mansion Bed & Breakfast in New Orleans. Sully is located in the Garden District section of New Orleans, just one block from St. Charles Street/trolley cars and 10 minutes from the French Quarter.

The Mansion from the outside looks like a regular home with a garden and a wrap-around porch. It could use some touching up on the outside, but the inside is a real delight - Victorian furniture and antiques fill the entire front parlor, dining and guest rooms.

Our room, the Prytania had a queen size 4-poster bed and a pull out sofa (about twin-sized). It had a television (w/video game capability), wireless internet if you have a laptop and a very large bathroom with a shower/bathtub. The room looks exactly as it does on their current website: ---------

The rates that we paid were $110/weeknight and $175/weekend night (Fri, Sat, Sun and during special events - we attended the Essence Festival). This rate was a little higher than some of the other hotels, but right in line with the rates of some of the finer establishments and B&B's. Included in the rate is continental buffet breakfast (coffee, juice, fruit, toast, danishes, muffins, yogurt, etc) served on beautiful china from 9-10am every morning.

The best part about staying at this best B&B to me was the personalized service that we received. Besides the usual "hotel-like" amenities (daily housekeeping included fresh fluffy white towels), we could ask all the questions we wanted about the city (restaurants, rolleys vs. cabs, things to do... etc.) Their were no lines to get this info; it was like having our own concierge service.

The final comments that I want to make is about reservations and check-in. I was able to view the room availability and rates, etc. online prior to committing to stay there. Also, our flight arrived in New Orleans about 9:30am on the day of check in. We expected to have to wait until afternoon (like at most hotels) to check in and rest, but by 10:30am, we were relaxing in our lovely room! Kudos to Chris & Heather Black, the proprietors at Sully Mansion.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans

You can't tell a book by its cover Alot of people get distracted by a pretty lobby or restaurant and accept the same block in a box. Look around, this town is dedicated to the tourist, so be a part of the city, not just a visitor. And being in the front row on Bourbon Street is like having the party in your house, so don't feel compelled to sit in front.

jaques-imo's great place for good food and great people

Court of Two Sisters The restaurant has the best Bread Pudding of any I've tried so far.
