Location is great. Bars and restaurants within walking distance. Staff was helpful and friendly. The buildings are as expected and advertised. Room was fine(size and style) but the bathroom was shabby - broken countertop and cabinet looked like it was sponge painted by a child. Tiny shower and no hot water the second night (after waiting for it to warm up for 10 minutes). Every flush in the building was heard. Very tall squishy bed. If you like that, it's great. On-site parking was across the street - not fun when you're carrying several heavy items.

Great place to stay with lots of NOLA character!
The Rathbone Mansions was authentic New Orleans and the room, pool, parlor, and overall property and staff were great. When we visit New Orleans again we will be staying there.

Loved it
Our stay at the Rathbone Mansion was one of the best experiences I had . Elizabeth was excellent in making sure we were taking care of, she even upgraded our room. The rooms were very clean and cool. Free parking and very close to The Quarter. Our stay was fantastic and I will definitely book again.

Old NOLA style
This hotel is an experience in true NOLA history. If you are looking for a shiny new upscale visit this is not the place for you BUT if you are looking for rich NOLA history with a comfy bed and great swimming pool stay at Rathbone. My suggestion is to request a lower room as the higher up you go the warmer the rooms tend to be and room 101 is just gorgeous!! As other posters have suggested sometimes our shower in room (202) ran hot and cold, but that was not a big deal! The breakfast was varied and quick and a walk to the trolley was just about two blocks.
