For Tulane and Loyola visitors and others staying far uptown, this late 1800s boardinghouse with St. Charles Avenue frontage (easy streetcar access) is a splendid choice. The park in view is verdant Audubon Park, which adds serenity and spaciousness to the large breakfast room and park-facing guest rooms (some with deep clawfoot tubs). Decor is Victoriana-meets-reproduction; smaller and non-view rooms can be cramped and/or dark. The Wi-Fi signal is stretched and may not reach rooms in the back, but the wide front porch is stellar for sitting a spell. The ample buffet breakfast also ranks high; daily cookies and afternoon wine add delightfulness.
