How to Choose a Room at the Grand Victorian Bed and Breakfast in New Orleans

Once you’ve decided to forgo the sterile hotel for the interesting B&B, how do you choose among the variety of rooms to meet your special needs? The Innkeepers in New Orleans proclaim there are “Two Hundred Rooms; No Two Alike.” We may be biased, but we believe the Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast is the best place to stay in New Orleans. Our New Orleans bed and breakfast in the Garden District offers eight unique rooms, all named after local plantation homes.  Here are some suggestions from the Grand Victorian staff on finding just the right room for you.

The Magnolia Guest Room at the Grand Victorian Bed and Breakfast - New Orleans - #22a


The Magnolia Guest Room

If you are planning a romantic getaway, then the Greenwood Suite is for you. Greenwood is known as our honeymoon suite and is popular for weddings and elopements in New Orleans.   If you prefer one of our deluxe rooms, the deep hues and bay windows of the Shadows Room are also a favorite with couples.

If you are traveling with a third person or would like to sleep separately please note, all rooms have only one bed. We have several rooms that are large enough for a rollaway cot:  Oak Alley, Greenwood, Magnolia, Evergreen. 

End your day with a long hot bath in one of our suites. If you are a vintage buff,  try the old cast iron tubs in Shadows or Destrehan.

We have two rooms on the first floor:  Rosedown and Oak Alley, plus a ramp that leads to the front door.  Rosedown houses our “Princess and the Pea” bed because it is high and requires bed stairs to climb in. Oak Alley is ADA compliant with an accessible bathroom and low queen-size bed. 

Are you a tall traveler (over 6 feet)?  Then choose one of these rooms without a high footboard on the antique beds: Rosedown, Greenwood, Magnolia, Shadows, Destrehan.

Girlfriends traveling together would appreciate the roomy bathroom of the Magnolia room or the expansive window bench in the Evergreen Room, good for sitting, reading, talking, or spreading out your stuff. 

For taking in the street scene, choose one of the suites with private balconies.  The Greenwood Suite overlooks the streetcars along St. Charles Avenue and is a great people-watching spot!

The Evergreen Guest Room

What is a “plantation-sized bed you ask? Because our furniture is all from the turn of two centuries ago, there were no “standard” bed sizes. These beds are all unique in length and width, however, for your comfort, seven guestrooms have been updated to receive a queen mattress and the Greenwood Suite has a king. 

Lastly, if you are traveling with a group of friends or family members, we have three great hangout spots available.  You can talk and view the street car in the parlor, have a glass of wine on the Porte Cochere balcony, or play cards in the dining room.

You might just get inspired by your room or the carved painting of its namesake plantation home.  If so, several of the plantations are still open for tours:  Oak Alley, Evergreen, Destrehan, and Nottoway.

Wherever you sleep in the Grand Victorian, you are sure to have a wonderful experience and great memories of the Garden District of New Orleans.  Call or email us today if you have any special needs and would like help choosing the perfect room for the perfect New Orleans vacation at the Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast.
