My husband and I spent five days here earlier this month and really enjoyed our stay! The house is beautiful and also very homey. Joe was very welcoming and friendly, answering all our questions and proving to be a wealth of knowledge about New Orleans. Throughout the trip he gave us good recommendations for restaurants and activities. When we checked in we showed interest in the house, so before walking us to our room Joe took the time to show us around and talk about restoring the house and the history of some of the furniture. Our room was lovely and very comfortable. Also, the location is great! A quiet neighborhood uptown and right in front is the St. Charles street car which took us right to (or within a reasonable walk of) all the locations we wanted to visit. We did rent a car to drive out of town for excursions, but no problem because there is parking in the back and safe street parking in front of the house. The continental breakfast was a treat - besides the normal bagels, toast, and coffee, there were fresh-baked pastries every morning. We also had options of fresh fruit, cereals (both hot and cold), and a mini-fridge with yogurt and hard-boiled eggs. All this in a beautiful dining room. In addition, there is a corner that has bowls of snacks available 24-hours a day. When we'd come in from our daily activities, we'd always stop by and pick up some crackers, granola bars, or cookies to take back to our room. All in all we felt very welcome and comfortable. I would recommend the Avenue Inn to anyone who wants to visit New Orleans!
Beautiful house!! We stayed in the biggest room which felt very private and spacious. We loved the location since you get an actual impression of where people live instead of just being amongst tourists. We walked almost everything and otherwise cabs were cheap. Two less positive points as well though: We had expected a little more from breakfast, more variety/fresh/organic. It was quite cold and rainy when we were there and the room was supercold!! So we had to put on this sort of electric heater a lot, but it was a lot of noise and made the air very dry.
This is a very large 3 store mansion located 50 feet from the cable car. During our stay, we parked our car in the free but parking area and used the cable car for our entire stay. The B& B was very quiet. Did not know anyone else was there until breakfast. No street noise. Very safe, and convenient area. Joe knows the best excursions and restaurants. The continental breakfast was well stocked with excellent choices. There was always cake there. The cake was to die for. We found out on the last day that Joe makes the cakes. Joe is very personable and accommodating. I would most definitely return there.
I loved staying at the Lion's Inn! As a female traveler on my own for a few days in New Orleans I was worried about finding a place for the right price, close to everything but not in middle of it all--this place is it! Ed was a great host--I had charming little room w/ shared bath, and a continental breakfast set-up every morning. It was cold when I was here so I did not get to use the pool, but in the warm weather it would be an awesome perk. The Lion's Inn is a few blocks from Frenchman's street--so easy to get home at night if you like to go listen to live music, eat or go to the art market. The French Quarter is about a 10-15 minute walk--I loved being able to easily walk over, but be able to come "home" to quiet place. I would definitely stay here again, traveling with friends or on my own.
Years before Katrina, we found Avenue Inn as our favorite bed and breakfast of New Orleans. Whenever we visit the city, Avenue Inn is the only home which we will stay. Bebe and Joe are the most gracious hosts, personal, making you feel like you are at home. It is so convenient to a restaurant, coffee shop, and trolley to the French Quarter. The breakfast that is provided will motivate you to enjoy the features of N.O. Avenue Inn stay is a must. Jim P.
My wife and I recently stayed at the Green House Inn during an event at the Ernest Morial convention center. The location and price were the main factors in our choice to stay there. It was easy to find for out-of-towners, being bright green makes it easy to spot. Walking distance to everywhere we wanted to be, and only a few blocks from the trolly line if we wanted to ride. We were greeted by very charming hosts and had friendly staff during our stay. Snack items were available around the clock instead of only at breakfast time, nice considering Surrey's just down the street is the perfect breakfast destination, but a midnight snack really hits the spot. Secure, off street parking helped me sleep at night in a comfy bed with plenty of pillows. The bathroom was spacious and bright, hardwood floors throughout, and WiFi that actually worked made our time in the room relaxing. Hopefully our next stay will be during weather suitable to enjoy the pool or maybe the hot tub, they were beautiful but it was too cold out for us. We will definitely be returning to the Green House.
From the moment we arrived in NOLA everything was great! Balcony Guest House suited our trip perfectly. 10 women for a fun weekend getaway can be challenging when it comes to accommodations but Zak and his staff went above and beyond to make sure we were all 100% happy! The rooms were cozy and quaint, the staff was kind and knowledgable and the restaurant was delicious! PERFECT!
This was our first visit to NOLA and it was our honeymoon. The owners of the B & B were very hospitable and made arrangements for transportation from the airport. They gave us good recommendations on things to see & do. The breakfast system was a little quirky with having to call 30 minutes before to order coffee, then ring a bell before entering the dining room. Our bedroom was nice but sound from the neighboring room and street noise kept us awake at night. The owners did offer to move us into an upgraded balcony room the last night of our 4 night stay. Overall, we enjoyed this B & B and would stay there again.
My wife and I stayed for an extra-long weekend at the Avenue Inn recently for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. The stay was absolutely fantastic! Joe was very welcoming on our arrival. He gave us lots of great information that made our visit to New Orleans so much more special. It really felt like we were staying with family or friends. We took advantage of the ample and safe free parking and used the streetcar that runs right outside the door for our daily, and evening, outings. The abundant and wonderfully fresh continental breakfast was perfect and allowed us a chance to eat even though we had a packed schedule every day. The quick snacks available during the day were spot on! We had a very nice room on the third floor. Of course the walk up to the third floor was a bit of a hike, but not a problem. The entire staff was very nice and we are already trying to figure out when we can return.
Me and my husband were going on a fall cruise out of New Orleans and found this great B&B. They were very nice and the breakfast was so good!!! I would recommend staying here and I myself will stay again if we cruise out of New Orleans again.
Fairchild B&B is good value for money - only two blocks from the streetcar stop, it's a quick trip downtown, and rooms are fairly clean and comfortable. Breakfast is basic (there was something egg-based one of the two nights I was there, but otherwise it's toast, cereal, coffee, juice), and rooms are very old (slightly peeling paint, signs of water damage on the ceiling, ancient furniture). All in all, I would recommend this B&B to tourists on a budget.
The Fairchild House was a quiet, comfortable "home base" for exploring historic New Orleans and road trips into the surrounding environs. Beatrice and her mom were perfect hosts, pleasant and engaging without being the least bit intrusive. We'll be back!
Everything was great. Good food, great suggestions for things to do. We took a helicopter tour while we where there and you must do that. Also did the swamp tour, go to that spring summer or early fall to see alligators. About the Bed and breakfast. Do not hesitate to stay at this place. We will stay here again. Breakfast is awesome sitting around the bog table and being served while visiting with all the others staying here. It's funny talk to others about where you are from and telling stories of your day in new Orleans. This place is very quiet and seems to be in a safe part of town. You can hop on the tram and it's a 10-15 min ride to the French Quarter as we parked our car and never really needed to take it anywhere. We rode the tram with a day pass to just about anywhere you want to go. Call now and book your trip!! You won't regret it.
We were greeted by Nancy. She was very nice and showed us our room upstairs and asked if we had any plans. We obviously had none and she was very helpful in telling us where to go and where not to go when it came to tours, eateries, etc. She gave us a map that was a lifesaver. Breakfast was good. We were blessed with very nice guests keeping us company. However, even if guests weren't eating with us, Nancy and Guy were there to keep us company and ask what we had done and what our plans were for the day. Gracie is the house dog. She is very docile and quiet. The room we stayed in was awesome. It was the Bourbon suite. Very spacious and comfortable. I looked at some of the other rooms and they were nice too but this was the best I thought, especially since this room was on the second floor. The other large suite (not sure the name) was downstairs right by the front door so it would have been a little more in the midst of things. So luckily our room was a little more private in the sense that it was upstairs. Either way, I don't think you can go wrong by staying here. I read a lot of reviews on Yelp that said the owners were rude but I didn't see that outright. I can see how some people may feel that from them but people need to relax a bit, and I'm a huge conservative! I think people need to realize that they are in a city that is very diverse and liberal. That's a given. So accept that about New Orleans and the people that live there. Anyways, Sully's is in a perfect location. It's located in a quiet part of the Garden District which is inundated with shady trees and large historical homes. The mansion is a block away from catching the streetcars which take you directly to the French Quarter. The mansion is also conveniently a few walking blocks to Magazine Street which has numerous places to eat and shop. My wife and I give this B&B two thumbs up!
Cindee Quick's home is beautiful and comfortable, homey and elegant at the same time, with a lovely, inviting high front porch that is the perfect place to relax between adventures (mainly culinary!) in this interesting, diverse town. Cindee truly makes you feel part of her family and is so helpful with information and useful tips. Stay as long as you can!
The breakfast was lovely. It is continental only but truly excellent quality. The rooms were immaculate! Bed was comfy. The host(s) were absolutely great. They showed us every kindness. Highly recommended, especially for people who enjoy B & Bs.
What a wonderful B&B! Nancy is a great host, the breakfasts were wonderful, and the house is charming and very clean. We were in the Palmetto room with a separate entrance to the courtyard which was convenient. The location is great. We just parked the car in front (for free) for 3 days and explored NOLA on foot. Very close to Frenchman street with great dining and music choices and a short walk to the French Quarter and beyond.
Avenue was recommended by a family member, and I am so thankful we decided to stay there instead of one of the countless other B&Bs in New Orleans! The room was HUGE and beautifully furnished. Upon check-in, Joe provided us freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and gave us a tour of the house. Joe was super nice, and answered every question we had, as this was our first trip to NOLA. I loved it's central location and the ability to hop right on the street car outside. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend Avenue to all of our friends!
The four poster bed, high ceilings, claw footed bathtub/show communicated clearly that I was in New Orleans. The service was very friendly. Breakfast that was included in the price was not exciting but conversations with guests and hosts made up for it.
My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights, Lovely mansion, warm greeting. Made to feel right at home. Streetcar stop out front so very convient for seeing the sights. Host and staff very friendly and helpful. btw Joe, I like your humor..keep it up. Rooms are large, comfortable and clean. In the Garden district so great for shopping, sightseeing and food!
The thoughtfulness of the two owners and the location within a couple of blocks of the French quarter, make this guesthouse a real jewel. The kitchenette is replete with food and beverages, available all day long, not just for breakfast. The lovely patio in the back is a relaxing and private place to hang out. The price is more than reasonable, without any of the extra fees.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Belle Esplanade. Matthew and Melanie are incredibly nice and accommodating and give great recommendations. The rooms were lovely (and huge!) and the food for breakfast (from local bakeries and shops) was delicious. We'll definitely stay again! -Cristin & James
