Your hosts are Joanne and Dennis Hilton. They are pioneers in this “Bed & Breakfast / Urban Inn” concept in New Orleans. Following a trip to London, more than twenty years ago, they devised a plan to spearhead the development of an area in New Orleans, similar to Russel Square in London, where visitors could walk from place to place to find available, reasonable B&B accommodations. Prytania Street, ¾ mile from the French Quarter, in the Lower Garden District was ideal – a convenient and picturesque area zoned for commercial but very residential in appearance. They bought the ST. CHARLES GUEST HOUSE at 1748 Prytania, an old Maritime boarding house which had been closed for a few years. They gussied it up, built a pool, and spread the word: B&B was alive & well in New Orleans. The message took hold. There are now about a dozen B&B’s in a six block radius, not to mention scores of others all around town.
