Rathbone Mansions guest room

All guests are invited to enjoy a free continental breakfast served daily from 8:30 am - 10: 30 am at the innkeepers residence. Enjoy fresh fruit, bagels, cereals, assorted breads, instant oatmeal, instant grits, orange juice, milk, and a variety of hot teas and of course our delicious New Orleans Coffee.

Your Breakfast Host makes something special each morning for you to enjoy. Homemade muffins, breads, a coffee cake or even cheese grits are known to leave our kitchen. In New Orleans we call it lagniappe, ("a little something extra") you'll just call it delicious.

Your breakfast host as well as any of our staff will be happy to assist you in any way we can to make your stay more enjoyable. We can suggest restaurants, help you with directions, tell you about our favorite florist, or the best place to get French bread.

The office staff can help you with directions, maps, booking tours, taxis, and restaurant reservations; we can even print your boarding pass for you. Need Flowers in your room when you arrive? Perhaps a New Orleans welcome basket? Or Liquor for a refreshing cocktail. Let us know what you need and we will be happy to make all the arrangements for you. Office Hours are Monday - Saturday, 8:30 am - 3:00 pm CST & Sunday, 8:30 am - 12 noon CST.
