First time at a B&B

4.6 on September 19, 2016

I usually avoided staying at a B&B because group breakfasts is not my cup of tea on vacation. I enjoy privacy and the freedom to "do my own thing" over meeting other guests and feeling obligated to make small talk. The Green House Inn was a nice mix of both; you could have a light breakfast with others, or take cereal, muffins, etc back to your room, or just do something else entirely. The rooms were nice, and the original details and construction of the house was charming. I found the shower to be a little small, but certainly adequate, and the water pressure was great. (This is not always the case when traveling) Our bed was comfy and the room was kept very clean. The pool area was lovely, and definitely relaxing when coming home from a long day walking around the streets of New Orleans. I did not find New Orleans to be a very clean city overall, but the Green House Inn was like a little oasis. The price was a great value compared to the larger hotels on Bourbon Street and we found it easy to get to everything either by walking, Uber, or the streetcar which is only three blocks away. At first, I was unsure about the idea of the "European Style" pool since I had never experienced it before, but there was no pressure or awkwardness regardless of your choice. There were couples who kept suits on and those who enjoyed the freedom, and either way there didn't seem to be any judgement. I would definitely recommend the Green House Inn and would stay here again if I'm ever back in New Orleans.


Relaxing and welcoming

4.6 on September 08, 2016

The Green House Inn is very relaxing. I loved the swimming pool and all the lush vegetation around. The owner is welcoming and very nice and has the friendliest dog. Rooms and house are very clean. It's within walking distance to the French Quaters, and River Walk, and all the fabulous mansions in the Garden District. There's a fabulous Cafe (the French Truck) next door for a morning croissant and coffee and a local brewery in the back for a nice glass of beer if you are in a mood for just in the back of the house. It's also 5 min away by foot from St Charles Ave where you can take the tram to almost everywhere... Enjoy!

Perfection! This was our second year to stay here and we are already booked for next year. We love to get away to New Orleans to decompress and there is nowhere else that we will stay than here. Do yourself a favor and give it a try....


Most relaxing spot in New Orleans

4.4 on August 26, 2016

My wife and I have stayed in quite a few hotels in New Orleans over the last 10 years. We have stayed at all the big name hotels near the French Quarters and we like every one of them. But the last time we came we were looking for some place more laid back and away from the noise and hustle of Canal St and the Quarters. So I went on line and that's when I found the Green House Inn. We have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before and at first I was a little skeptical a B&B. But the house and pool sounded very inviting so we book 2 nights. When we arrived, Frank was sitting outside by the front door and from the we got out of the car and introduced ourselves we knew we had made the right decision. Frank was warm and personable as he checked us in and gave us a tour of the house. Our bed was very comfortable and cozy. Fresh fruits and snacks in the dining room any time of day or night, and I can't say enough about the pool. After our 1st night my wife and I decided we would like to extend our stay one day longer luckily we were able to, and enjoyed every minuet of it. Funny thing, we wanted to spend some time in the Quarters but instead of parting like a rock star on Bourbon, we just hung out around the pool and ordered delivery food. It was awesome and no regrets at all. Needless to say this trip was the BEST trip to NOLA ever and I would highly recommend the Green House Inn as an escape from the noise hustle of the City. Thank You Frank and Jessie, We will see you for Halloween ! keep up the great work! B & L


Relaxing Get Away in NOLA

4.2 on August 22, 2016

This B&B is a unique NOLA experience. The location is very convenient and the gated parking was a real plus. It is a short walk to the convention center and the WWII museum. The renovation was well done - Room layouts were comfortable and sleeping was comfortable. Breakfast was self serve continental style in a dining area with china. The real highlight of this inn is the pool/hot tub area. The landscaping is lush semitropical. There is enough shade for a hot August afternoon. We were stayed there with friends and decided that we would just bring in some appetizers and enjoy the pool rather than going out one of the nights we were there. We would rate our overall experience at this B&B as 5 stars.

The most relaxing vacation

4.8 on August 20, 2016

Just stay. Relax. Just be. Such a fitting motto! My husband and I had a great vacation without kids and without the craziness of the world in this well hidden treasure in New Orleans. Great access to the trolley. Blocks from shopping and lots of restaurants. AND the pool and hot tub are amazing!
