Having never tried a Bed and Breakfast opportunity in the United States, I was unsure of what to expect. When my girl friend and I arrived, we were greeted by Jim and assisted into our room. The accommodations were very comfortable, clean, and exceeded my expectations. Leigh is a wealth of information about New Orleans and guided us to restaurants and activities..all within walking distance of the Inn. She is a delightful, vibrant conversationist and provided excellent breakfast choices. We have already made plans for future trips to New Orleans and are looking forward to staying again at Elysian FIelds Inn.
We stayed there in July. The caretakers are the nicest people you want to meet. They were very informative about the area. You have no need for a car. you are in the middle of everything.. Me and my family will stay nowhere else.
My husband and I stayed at the Fairchild bed and breakfast and we had a wonderful stay. The staff are very helpful and welcoming and kind. We had never been to New Orleans before and they were polite and very helpful in answering my husband and my questions about where to go and what to do. Out of our 4 day stay we only ate the breakfast there 1 time because we were so busy but it was good. Not only was this place cute and clean it was like a home away from home. We will definitely be back here and would definitely recommend this place to others!!!
My husband and I stayed at the Royal Street Courtyard earlier this month and we were very pleased with our stay. The house was very nice and the owners were amazing. We were met at the door upon our arrival and given a quick rundown on everything in the area with directions on how to get there. Our room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. We loved the area the house was located in too. Frenchman street was very neat with lots of restaurants and live music and the walk to the French Quarter and Bourban was not bad at all. We will definitely stay here next time we return.
The house was old, but clean and welcoming. The people that greeted us both evening and morning were wonderfully kind and genuine. The location is superb. I think this was a tremendous bargain and we enjoyed our stay very much.
This hidden getaway was an experience that will not be forgotten. Easy access, owners/staff were so inviting and caters to your specific needs! Definitely did not want to leave so soon. And definitely would much rather reside here than hotel accommodations! Look forward to revisiting to see and stay in the other rooms available in the near future!!
The Green House Inn is truly an Oasis in the middle of an amazing culinary mecca... NEW ORLEANS! The pool is the feature of this B & B... the area is small, but the water is just right for the heat of the city. The tropical oasis is just, well "cool"... and most bare it all to get a full tan in between the palm leaves. My wife and I loved it. The location is a 15 minute safe walk to the convention center, 25 minutes to the French Quarter and 10 minutes to really fantastic restaurants. Take a left on Magazine out the door and walk 5 minutes to the best shrimp and grits (Surry's) in the world. REALLY! We actually skipped most of the Green House's Breakfasts, which are more of the "Super 8" variety and ate there. Walk to the right on Magazine and in 10 minutes just past the WWII Museum, you are at Tommy's or Couchon Butcher. The Green House Inn is a delight... best advise, get naked! Oh... and bring some lotion that has some bug repellent to avoid a few mosquito bites.
The Lanaux Mansion provided a charming haven for a rendezvous with old friends in New Orleans. The proprietress was so very accommodating with our schedule--pleasant, informative, and indefatigable--even with an injured foot climbing steep stairways to make sure we had everything we needed! The house is gorgeous and resplendent with period detail, fitting seamlessly into the Quarter and yet providing a private world away from the clamor of contemporary Quarter life. The interior courtyard is a lovely place to gather for cocktails, as is the formal parlor of the Johnson Suite, where we served champagne and cheese before heading out Uptown for a fabulous meal at Clancy's. Such gracious hospitality combined with beautiful historic period detail, ease and convenience (a private gate for guest entrances and exits) is difficult to find at this value. I would highly recommend Ms. Ruth and the Lanaux Mansion for brief and longer stays. Former New Orleanean now in Seattle
Overall not a bad place and the location is not bad if you are able to walk several blocks to get into the french quarter. Here was our issue. We booked this maybe 2 weeks in advance. Clearly we were confirmed to have a room with balconey over looking the pool. Well 3 days before we are to arrive we get an email saying thee was a mistake and that room was previously booked but we could have the largest room on the property for the same price. At this point we accepted because we did not want to try and find another room this late. As you may know New Orleans always has a festival going on and this was Tale of the Cocktail weekend. Upon arrival Tom showed us to our room. It was a very big room and very nice, however it was very dark as the shutters on the windows were closed and not much light could get in. Also it was located right off the kitchen in the middle of the house. Now I can't know for certain but my insight tells me this may be a tatic that Tom uses to get all the rooms occupied. I say this because he told me he had been doing this for 14 years and with only 4 rooms and I find it hard to believe he did know the balcony room overlooking the pool was already reserved. I believe it was repeat customers as well. Then upon checking out he did not want to take the B&B gift certificate we had. Said he no longer accepts these as they take 20% but yet he is still listed here. He did finally take the certificate but not without some discussion. So overall it was a nice place with a nice little private pool. Just be careful if he says the balcony room(s) over looking the pool is available.
Our room was warm and inviting, our hosts were helpful with suggestions on places to see and restaurants, and we felt like we were part of the community. This was by far one of the best vacations we have ever had, and Phillip and David helped to make that happen by creating a cozy and friendly environment. Thanks guys!
My husband and I stayed at Five Continents for several nights while visiting New Orleans for Jazz Fest. It was walking distance to the fair grounds. We stayed in the cottage. The room was very spacious, more like a mini apartment. Peter was wonderfully hospitable and personable and his homemade breakfasts were delicious. A million times better than staying in a hotel.
The first time I came to Madewood was on 26 September 1989. Now I wanted to introduce my son to this Plantation House. Together we appreciated the comfort and hospitality of Madewood and also we both noted that Madewood had very much conserved its character as an original Plantation House.
Matthew & Melanie are asolutely lovely hosts of this super-nice B&B in Tremé. We loved staying in the Clio Suite, wished we could have stayed there a few more days. Wifi worked lite it should, comfy bed, good AC, nice beverages and great breakfast with locally sourced food. Only negative thing is that it is a bit far from most places you wanna go but the bus stop is right outside and cabs are quite cheap.
My husband and I wanted to see New Orleans. For our twentieth wedding anniversary we stayed at The Green House Inn. We started staying at Bed and Breakfasts on our honeymoon and have preferred the experience to hotels whenever it is available. Frank and Jesse the Innkeepers were welcoming and helpful from the start. Our only plans for the trip were our airline tickets and our bed and breakfast. We explored New Orleans each morning, and came back to the wonderful pool and lush gardens during the heat of the day. What an amazing retreat Jesse has made. One evening we ordered in, because we did not want to leave poolside. Other nights we were assisted making reservations or finding musical adventures. The extra touches, gracious hosts, and beautiful setting made the inn itself a stand out destination in a city of wonders. I would highly recommend it as a getaway for individuals or couples looking for an exciting trip, or a relaxing recharge. We had both.
We have been trying to stay at Balcony Guesthouse for a while and were so excited it finally worked out. Immediately upon arrival, we felt like we were with family. From the staff to the other guests, everyone knew our names and took care of us. Anytime we needed anything, Zach (owner) was always there to help with a smile on his face- even after hours! I recommend this to anyone who wants a local New Orleans experience and something that has a relaxed atmosphere. We will return!!
My lovely wife and I stayed for just two nights for a short weekend getaway to New Orleans a few weeks ago. Our experience was nothing short of fantastic. From the moment we arrived Matthew and Melanie were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Our room was the Saints suite, which has two large rooms, an antique canopy bed and a wonderful balcony with a cool vertically sliding window to get out to it. The place is in the Treme area, which is full of beautiful, very old homes. We spent quite a bit of time walking around the area checking them out. There's a cool older cemetery about 15 minutes up the street, and a little farther past that is City Park. There are some wonderful cafes and local restaurants that Matthew recommended, which were fantastic. We always felt safe, even walking around at night. Breakfast is not your typical B&B fare, but the best of local breads, pastries, cheeses, fruits and other wonderful foods. One morning Melanie served us the best crab cakes I've ever had, the previous morning we enjoyed a variety of delicious, locally made sausage. There was a Vietnamese pastry that was one of the tastiest things I've ever had. The coffee with chicory had me going for a second and third cup - and I gave up coffee three years ago! If you're looking to party all night in the French Quarter and stagger back to your room this is probably not the best place for you. If you're looking to experience the local culture, see some things off the beaten path and do the non-touristy things, but still be close to everything, you'll love it. The location is equal walking distance to the Quarter and some of the cool local places in the Treme area (Lil Dizzy's, Willie Mae's Scotch House). It takes about a half hour to walk to Bourboun street, and about that far to City Park. Our two days there were only enough to get a taste of the area but we'll definitely be back, and will be staying here again without question.
My husband and I made our first trip to New Orleans and Mary and Hugh at Banana Courtyard made us feel at home immediately. We stayed in the Madame Steamboat room and found it beautiful and comfortable. It was easily within walking distance of everything in the French Quarter. We plan on recommending Banana Courtyard to our friends that plan on making trips to New Orleans in the future. We can't wait to go back next year!
I stayed at Elysian Fields about 10 years ago and just returned this summer for another stay there. Different owners, but another excellent stay. Rooms are clean, well kept, and the owners were wonderful. Helpful, informative, gracious. Breakfasts were outstanding. Coffee was fantastic. I will return there as often as I can.
I was more than pleased with my stay at Crescent. The environment was welcoming and the owners were so helpful and courteous. The complimentary breakfast, including juice, bagels, and English muffins was bountiful. The rooms were always serviced and included bathrooms for each unit. The nicest perk was the backyard garden and proximity to Frenchman and Bourbon Street. It was the best choice I've made on a vacation in a while!
The entire stay, from start to finish, was top notch! Jesse, Frank, Felicita and I can't remember the name of the other Assistant, were extremely friendly, nice, and accommodating. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Greenhouse Inn when visiting New Orleans. It's convenient enough to all attractions. And there's the added bonus of Rio, the Macaw, and Stuben, the guard dog. It was just like being at home. I loved it! Judy
My mom and I spent 5 days at this Bed and Breakfast. We were greeted by the owner upon arrival, she took us to our room and gave us a tour. This is a beautiful home that is over 100 years old. Despite that there is no musky smell, AC in all rooms, each room has a private bath and it is clean! The location is great, it took less than 10 minutes to walk to the French Quarter so we were close enough to enjoy the action but able to get a good nights sleep. The neighbourhood is extremely safe and we walked back and forth day or night. The food is prepared on site by the owner, it included yogurt, juice, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, cereal, numerous types of baking and always a hot dish(keish, peach oatmeal and granola, eggs). We had a wonderful stay and would absolutely go back. The only thing you might need to know is there is NO TV, however, there are tons of book to borrow and a lovely, fenced in outdoor sitting area.
Stayed at Fairchild for 7 nights..d room was nothing great yet me n my colleague had a wonderful stay..the breakfast lounge saw people mingling and sharing tales of their stay..Beatrice the b&b owner was extremely helpful and guided us with the touristy and culinary destinations..she even helped us book cab and tour reservations..the location was close to the morial convention center and dat helped us as we were there for a convention..will stay here again if visiting NOLA to get the true taste of southern hospitality..:-)
The hospitality and service were great. The landscaping and pool area were my top features of the B&B. It's also only a short walking distance to Decatur Street and the French Market. I would definitely stay here again.
The Lions Inn is my favorite place to stay in New Orleans and I have always enjoyed my time there. My only complaint about this stay this time is that I was relentlessly attacked by mosquitoes while in the lovely backyard. They bit my head, my face, my fingers, just EVERY WHERE!!! I had a bad reaction to the bites and had to see my doctor when I returned home. This is the first time that I have ever experienced such a situation. I had put on repellent but it did not appear to work very well against these creatures!!! With the pool and the pond, I guess they have multiplied. It made my stay difficult. The bites became inflamed and swollen. I just never had such an experience!!!! I had been in NO for a week prior to coming to the Lions Inn and had not been bitten once. I thnk they should do some sort of spraying to take care of the problem or I won't be able to return:-(.
Myself and 3 others road our bikes to New Orleans for the essences festival from Chicago thus place was nice and cozy. The breakfast was ok was looking for that real southern breakfast in the am but it made due. It was awesome enjoyed the stay, Nancy(Mrs. Hollywood) was very awesome.
