    Congratulations to Roger! I did find the correct hotel online and saw the weekday rate for the Tessitore Suite to be $175 and wondered where the $250 published rate was? http://www.1896omalleyhouse.com/book-now/ Not contesting at all (lol), just wondering so I can do better in the future!

    • Hi Nancy,

      Thanks for pointing out our mistake! The room pictured was the Tessitore Suite, not the Broyard Suite. We’ve updated the post. However, the maximum nightly rates for those suites are the same.

      We were looking for the maximum nightly price of the room, and that includes weekends. We found weekend rates for that room as high as $250 per night on select days (April 15, for example). Also, the maximum nightly price of $250 is posted on the Rates page on the O’Malley House Web site: http://www.1896omalleyhouse.com/bed_and_breakfast_rates_in_new_orleans/

      I hope that helps! Thanks for playing.
