Chimes Bed and Breakfast


Cancellation Policy

The Chimes Bed and Breakfast is an exclusive family-owned property where every guest reservation is both important and special to us. Some of the policies have been altered to accommodate the post-Covid environment. 

The full amount of your stay is due and will be charged to your credit card, on the cancellation date, fifteen (15) days prior to arrival. A sixty (60) day cancellation notice is required for special events that include Mardi Gras, Jazz Festival, Super Bowl, Final Four, Essence Festival, Voodoo Festival, Sugar Bowl, university events and some conventions. Special events and all room rentals (one group) require a one night (1), non-refundable, deposit with a balance due sixty (60) days prior to arrival at the Chimes B&B.

Rooms reserved with less than a fifteen/sixty (15 or 60) day window will be charged in full 24 hours after the reservation is made. We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover, checks (in advance) and debit cards.

In the event that you must cancel or shorten your stay with less than fifteen/sixty (15 or 60) day notice and the specific dates are re-booked at the same rate, a full or partial refund will be made, less a $30. fee. We recommend purchasing travel insurance to cover any unexpected events.
