The Chimes Bed and Breakfast is an exclusive family-owned property where every guest reservation is both important and special to us.

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 some university events and some conventions. Payment for special events can be made in two increments on request.
