We found the HH Whitney House met all our needs when we visited NOLA for Jazz Fest. When we made the reservation, Glen was prompt with communications about our stay, getting tickets at a discount, our food allergies and more. He let us ship our bag chairs ahead of time and gave us tips for public transportation, cabs, etc. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly. This B&B is the perfect location, about halfway between the Fairgrounds and the French Quarter - both within easy walking distance. Esplanade is a wide boulevard with lots of lovely old homes, a treat to stroll. Honestly, we didn't spend a lot of time at the B&B, but breakfast every morning was superb - both Randy and Glenn, the innkeepers, make a wonderful breakfast. The backyard is fantastic - patio, hot tub, pool and all the lush greenery that is typical of the South, The Southern hospitality was showered on us, We met some interesting and cool people at the B&B as well. We had a great time.
We've stayed at the Lions Inn for several years now, during Jazz Fest and the French Quarter Fest. We enjoy the hospitality, the magnificent courtyard, the refreshing pool and spa, and the eclectic neighborhood. You have the option to explore notable attractions nearby, or spend a quiet day by the pool. We look forward to our stay each year.
I kind of hope this place stays a secret because it's such a hidden gem! From the moment we were shown our room right up until check out, Kim and Charlie were exceedingly helpful with recommendations of where to eat and drink. The most amazing fried chicken is less than 5 minutes from the inn and is 2 pieces for 1 dollar. Crazy amazing and I'm not talking about the price;) This place suited our needs perfectly and we will definitely be back. We have already referred friends and family:)
This was a peaceful and convenient location with easy access to the St. Charles line...5 minutes to te French Quarter and a 5 minute walk to the Convention Center. I loved the homey feel and that I could have a bowl of cereal at 3 am in the kitchen in my robe just like I was at home. The bed was very comfortable, the room clean and large with very nice bathrooms. Loved that there was a hallway entrance to the room but also a room door to the lush semitropical courtyard with gorgeous pool amd hot tub. As a nudist I loved how comfortable I felt being at poolside sans fabrics! The owner Jesse and staff Frank were very helpful and nice. I will definitely stay here again. I actually enjoyed just spending time in the pool area versus being out in the Quarter when I was back from the conference as I have been to NOLA many times. What a special find!!! -- Ron, Houston, TX
Stayed in New Orleans for 5 days for a conference. The room was very clean and had a very old style decoration which I really liked. The cleaning ladies where changing our towels every day as well as cleaning the room. The service was exceptional and everyone was very helpful. The breakfast doesn't have many options but everything is very yummy and looked homemade. I ours definitely recommend this place!! Also the area is safe and just 2 minutes walking to the closest street car stop.
First, I should explain that we were not able to spend a lot of time here. Some travel plans were goofed and we didn't arrive until about 5:30 pm and had to leave the next morning at 7 to catch our flight, despite trying to change it to a later time. I give the benefit of the doubt that things would have been different if we had more time. That being said, I felt as if we were looked down upon that we were only able to spend a brief period of time. I worked hard to get a bed and breakfast reservation for one night (which was our very first wedding anniversary). I felt as if the staff could have been a bit more accommodating, as we woke up and left without coffee or breakfast after being told that coffee was put out at 7, so we "might" be able to get some. It was a bit frustrating, but all in all I am glad we still chose to stay here. The room was very comfortable and we were able to open the windows for fresh air, which never would have happened in a hotel.
Sully Mansion is everything you would expect a B&B to be. Lovely lovely old home in a great area. Convenient to shops and restaurants and only a block away from the Street Car which takes you all over the city. Our room was charming and the breakfasts were delicious. Guy and Nancy are great hosts who can help you with almost every aspect of your visit. And their dog, Gracie is an added bonus! We would definitely stay here again.
This is our 3rd year staying at the burGUNdy while we attend French Quarter Fest. An easy walk to Frenchmen St and the Quarter. I continue to love the funkiness of the neighborhood and appreciate staying in this double shotgun. I consider innkeeper Carl Smith a friend and always enjoy talking with him over breakfast. It has always been quiet and comfortable in our room and the place has a nice laid back vibe.
It doesn't get any better. Nancy is a warm and welcoming host, very willing to help make the most of your stay in New Orleans. The B & B itself is tastefully decorated and our room was very comfortable with lots of little extras- hot tub, doorway to the patio, kitchen- that we really appreciated. Location was ideal for our needs, close to the French Quarter but also to other neighborhoods we wanted to explore. We met and enjoyed guests from all over the world. All in all a most wonderful stay which we are eager to repeat soon!
Had a wonderful stay in New Orleans at the Avenue Inn B&B, Joe and Bebe are wonderful Innkeepers and this lovely home! I have been to N.O. many times and really enjoyed the quiet stress free feel of this location. Would stay again and again at this Inn.
Not only are the individual rooms charming but the parlour and dining space, both inside and outside, make for cozy lounging areas for stimulating conversation. The breakfast selection was amazing and so delicious. Southern hospitality all around!
Green House is an oasis of calm and beauty! Frank and owner, Jessie exuded the southern charm one would expect in NOLA. The rooms are spacious and decorated beautifully. We always love staying at Green House Inn when we're in town.
The Banana Courtyard is a great place to stay. The staff is very friendly and were waiting in the rain to open the gate when we arrived the first day. Everyone is knowledgeable of the area and can offer great advice on restaurants, tours and things to do around New Orleans. Everything in the French quarter is just a short walk which makes it easier to get around! The B&B has a lot of character too with all the pics and furniture! I love it!
We truly enjoyed our stay. Our room was quite comfortable--bigger than most rooms in older hotels, nice bed, and nice bath. The back courtyard (which is c/o) is gorgeous and nicely private and has a pool and hot tub. Breakfast is continental style and self-serve with cereals, pastries, fruit, yogurt, coffee, etc. The staff was super friendly and helpful when we needed help. The location is great. It's 3 blocks from the Charles St. streetcar, 25 min walk to the Quarter. A coffee shop, a bar, and a micro-brewery are all right there next to the Inn. We will definitely be back!
This was our first visit to New Orleans. A friend we met in Jamaica recommended The Green House Inn to stay at. It was easy to find, close to great places to eat, drink or just socialize at. We love the European style pool setting as well. The staff are very friendly and helpful, as well as knowledge of the sites to see for first timers to the area. We definitely would stay here again.
We very much enjoyed our stay from our late arrival and greeting by Roland to our late departure. Beatrice who ran the place felt like an old friend by the time we left. She was so friendly and gave us great pointers about the area, about the close restaurants and the best way to use the street cars. She was very accommadating. We were there during the French Quarter Festival. We will be staying here again.
Bob and Michelle were absolutely wonderful. Breakfast every morning was different and delicious. Wifi worked great. Just a flew blocks from Frenchmen St, but far enough away that it's quiet (I was in 204 and never heard a peep from the street). I was unfortunately quite sick when I arrived and Bob/Michelle recommended an urgent care that saw me almost immediately, ensured I could enjoy the rest of my vacation. They also gave us info about how to get discounted Lyft rides since we didn't have a car. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in NOLA! They're lucky I didn't steal their adorable dog Beck either ;) You won't regret staying here!
Excellent value and in a great location. Faubourg Marigny is close enough to walk anywhere in the French Quarter, but there was so much to do and see and eat and drink in the Marigny that this was our best NOLA experience so far. Kim was a big help as we got checked in and she provided a lot of information about the neighborhood.
Great price for a very quaint and very clean BNB. The service was great with very friendly staff. Location is amazing - short trolley ride to Bourbon St. Would recommend and would stay here again. Very pleased overall.
