House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 142 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 April 2012

I cannot say enough about this B&B. Everything (the atmosphere, room, food and owners) was absolutely wonderful!

Kevin & Wendy, thanks so much for making us feel at home (more like family, actually) instantly, for creating a clean & quiet respite after hot crazy days in the city, with front and back porches inviting us to relax and slow down awhile. Thanks for preparing a perfect, light breakfast to start the day with croissants and fruit (gotta save some appetite for all those wonderful restaurants!). Was that coffee really chickory? ;) Thanks for leaving water bottles in our room each day, too. Much better than chocolate on our pillows, for sure!

We got to know Algiers quite well by week's end, and found it to be charming, quiet, friendly, neighborly. It has a good positive vibe to it. Loved the guitar store around the corner, Toute de Suite cafe, and of course the neighborhood bars where we enjoyed good beer with great friends.

We can't wait to come back. We know what it means to miss New Orleans and our new Algiers family. Give Boudin a hug for us.

Kevin and Wendy have a great little place there in Algiers Point. The room rate was incredibly reasonable and the accommodations ideal. My husband and I had never been to Algiers but are glad we discovered it. The neighboring restaurants and bars were welcoming and the locals are a lot of fun! Its a nice quiet neighborhood to stay in after a busy and hectic day touring through New Orleans... We will be back!

The Rising Sun is steps away from the free ferry to downtown NOLA in the charming, historic, quiet and lovely neighborhood of Algiers Point. Kevin and Wendy are ideal B&B hosts. Their home, in a comfortably remodeled 19th century vernacular architecture, offers a comfortable public space and two porches, and is furnished with a comprehensive library. There are affordable eating options within three blocks if you want a break from the city's restaurants. Unique and excellent.

Room Tip: The front room is lit by a street light and is thirty feet from its private bath.

The casual hospitality of the neighborhood surrounding the Rising Sun gets top marks as does this terrific little b & b. A pleasantly marked contrast to my accommodations earlier in the week at a large Soul Sucking conference hotel whose name rhymes with Riot. Our weekend retreat in Algiers Point at the Rising Sun was the perfect antidote!

As many others have said the HOTRS is a great b&b. Kevin and Wendy are so welcoming and helpful (esp on where to eat and suggested music venues), the fruity breakfast is a great start to the day, and our room was lovely (and very comfortable bed). The bit though that we hadn't expected was the location being so good. Let's face it N.O. is noisy - great, great fun but boy is it noisy. The 5-minute (free) ferry ride across to Algiers Point takes you out of the hustle and bustle and into a quiet and lovely nighbourhood. We used that ferry at least twice a day for 5 days and got to really enjoy that as a serene start to each day's adventure, and a pretty (looking back at the city and the bridge) end to each evening. The best recommendation is that if we ever get the chance to go back to N'Awlins this is where we'd stay.

Oh and the hidden gem of the city is the sculpture garden at the Museum Of Art. Just fabulous. Do not miss it.
