Walk up to the porch, ring the bell, be greeted by a smiling face and prepare to be treated like family! This very elegant home was designed right from the start to be a bed and breakfast with a 2 story residence above. Mr. Don and Mrs. Rose Hubbard created an experience for a select few to enjoy, so book early! Stay in one of their lovely and personally designed suites, eat breakfast in the family style dining room and walk down memory lane full of New Orleans and Louisiana History. Meeting Mr. Hubbard is a special treat to relish. Expect to be in a home, not a hotel and don't come with your attitude or all wound up. Be ready to relax and enjoy!
This is my 2nd stay at the Hubbard Mansion after about 15 years. It has maintained its charm and beauty in all those years. Don Hubbard continues to be my favorite Innkeeper with his southern charm and wicked sense of humor. I stayed here with my partner to celebrate my 55th birthday in New Orleans. When planning my trip , the Hubbard Mansion was the only place I considered and was not disappointed. Kudos to Don & Sheila for keeping this jewel in tip top shape. I WILL BE BACK ‼️‼️
Excellent B&B. Numerous restaurants close by. Easy to get to and from with street car line across the street. Can get anywhere with public transportation. Very pleasant and helpful hosts, Easy people to talk to, I highly recommend Hubbard Mansion. Note, NOLA airport difficult to get to because of confusing road signs. Ask Hubbard folks for clear directions. Also, Google directions from the airport send you on city streets at night where street signs are difficult to see. Instead, Follow HY 10 to St Charles Street exit, turn right and you are only about a mile away from the mansion.
We had a room at the back so we were not disturbed by the tram running back and forth on the main road. The bedroom was big and clean a part for some dust. The bathroom was small. Overall it would benefit from small changes: a slightly bigger TV, remove the faulty cd player... The WiFi connection is really bad and this is a problem for people travelling from outside the USA. The breakfast could be better and had more variety rather than having a small portion of scramble eggs and few grapes served almost daily, it would be nice to have a couple of options to choose from. Yogurts out of date served daily despite informing the lady in the morning. There are several do and don'ts notes by the entrance and in the room that could be updated with a 'welcome leaflet' listing recommendations. (WiFi code, nearby restaurants, cost of the trolley for 24 .., as well as the house rules..so on). Overall the price per night was high, not value for money. The owner is incredibly fascinating and interesting to talk to. So much history! Few blocks away running parallel there is Magazine street, great for food, drinks and shopping. The trolley stop outside the BB is great to get to the French quarter.
Arrived at night and no one to check me in. Key left under door mat. No lights on inside the Carriage House unit. Most of the furniture was worn. Headboard on her had bolts hanging out. Never met owner until day 5. Found out key to unlock the outer door also unlocked both bedroom doors. Had come back and found they had moved others into the unit with us. Shower was small and slippery. No mat or safety strips.
If you are in NOLA and have never said in a Bed and Breakfast please let this be your Locale. The location is excellent but the hospitality that was given was Awesome! It was a special delight to actually meet and fellowship with Mr Hubbard and Sheila:-). Ms Sheila really make you feel at "Home". Having breakfast daily was a plus! The price is for the history, provisions, hospitality and most of all proud to say it's ##BLACK OWNED##
We rented out the Carriage House at the Hubbard Mansion. l contracted for the entire place. Two bedrooms with private bath, kitchen, small living room and half bath. My friend and I each took separate bedrooms. The place was filthy. The first day I tried to take a shower. I was unable to because there didn’t seem to be a way to turn the shower on. My friends shower was so slippery she slipped. Luckily she didn’t get hurt. We were told we were not invited to breakfast until Friday. Breakfast was ok. Eggs, bacon, toast, coffee tea juice and some cake. Cereal if you liked. My towels were soiled, the bedding was unacceptable. The mattress was not covered, no protection against bed bugs or other problematic issues. A unprofessional letter was placed on the kitchen counter. A lock on the front door was taped off. Unacceptable for AAA. The only key we had worked both bedrooms and the front door. The reason I am bringing that up is because the last night we were there our innkeeper texted me to let me know that we used both bedrooms, they wanted more money. While we were gone during the day, they moved all my belongings out of my room and moved them into my friends room. They rented my room to a couple and their baby. At this point there was no privacy, they had the same key as us. If they were dishonest, we could have lost my belongings. Our privacy was taken away from us. Everything in the Carriage House was old and warn. No hospitality from the innkeeper, who scolded us for using both bedrooms. The entire last 24 hours of our trip to New Orleans was destroyed. It was totally unprofessional. It was a true night mare.
I stayed at the Hubbard Mansion for the first time in November, 2018. I've passed it and admired it many times, but somehow never checked to see if it was a B&B. I was very pleasantly surprised. My room as large and furnished with lovely antiques. I had a very good bathroom with a spa tub and heated floor. Although right on St. Charles it was very quiet and restful in the property. I enjoyed the breakfast, and will definitely consider staying there in the future. It is right across from a streetcar stop, and near the Fresh Market and several restaurants.
I have been to NOLA on numerous occasions, and always stayed in hotels. Never really considered the bed and breakfast route for lodging. I was so pleasantly surprised, and instantly fell in love with the very beautiful Hubbard Mansion, its owner and staff. The rooms are large, elegantly decorated, and each has its own bath! I looked forward to sitting at the breakfast table each morning and having breakfast with the owner, other guests, and my friends. It is conveniently located on St. Charles avenue and there is no paying to park like at the hotels. The street car stops right in front of the mansion, which takes you straight down to Canal Street right up to the French Quarter. Just can't beat the value, and I will definitely stay at Hubbard Mansion anytime I visit NOLA!
It's hard to put into words the beauty of the antiques in this bed and breakfast. You have to see them for yourself. My girlfriends and I enjoy a wonderful extended weekend in NOLA. Besides all there is to do in NOLA, I have to say the best part was starting each morning with the pleasure of the owner's company. Mr. Hubbard and his staff are awesome. We indeed felt like we were most welcome. I loved the history lessons about the area. Traveling downtown was not an issue because we rode the street car each day. There is a stop right in from of the mansion. Awesome stay that I would recommend to anyone.
