This was our first time visiting New Orleans and we couldnt have asked for a more wonderful experience! Jill and Charles made us feel so comfortable and at home with their generous hospitality and our stomachs were always filled with delicious fresh foods! Chimes was the most beautif and original bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at!

The Chimes is an oasis of charm and seclusion in the perhaps the craziest, busiest city in the world. Beautiful place and beautiful people! Some bed and breakfast hotels are actually in someone's house which can be a little too cozy for me. These rooms are in an L shaped configuration around a small courtyard which allows for lots of...

Not only is the staff welcoming and knowledgeable but the accommodations are calm and clean. Being in the same industry, I know what to look for and you find it ALL here. The rooms are comfortable, the grounds are kept, the area is gorgeous, the staff is like family, the breakfast is JUST enough. I will not stay anywhere else...

Finishing up my six night stay at The Chimes and highly recommend it. Jill and daughter Yasmine were outstanding hosts who make you feel welcome from the moment you ring their doorbell. Breakfasts are great, rooms spotless and full of character, info about happenings throughout New Orleans (and places to eat) detailed and accurate. A great place to stay... not...

Your contributions at the breakfast table are interesting and informed. Your comment about the interruption in the street car line is true. There is a patch where you will be bussed. Sorry for the delays you incurred. Hopefully, the repairs will be finished in November. Thank you for staying we us again!

This was our third stay at the Chimes. We stayed during our honeymoon, 5 year anniversary, and now the 10th. I'm sure there will be a future stay someday as well. Room A, off the garden, is our home away from home. We love the private entry and little touches that make it feel special. The bathroom is my favorite...

We stayed for one night on a business trip.

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.

Restaurants, coffee houses and shops are within walking distance of this unique, private spot. The owners are on site with a singular goal: to make you feel comfortable and at home in their city. Five private guest rooms open to a courtyard that is beautiful, quiet and speaks of historic New Orleans.
