There is nothing like Avenue Inn, just like there is nothing like New Orleans. For our family, we can't do one without the other. Our most recent visit during JazzFest in early May reminded us why we don't even bother looking for another place to stay. Where else can you have a charming room, on an historic street, with guests who are strangers who within the friendly atmosphere start talking like longtime friends. Proprietors like Bibi and Joe make sure every need is taken care of and have an answer to any question. We've been coming to New Orleans since 2006 when our youngest first attended Tulane -- he never left New Orleans. How lucky are we that Avenue Inn has become our home-away-from-home when we visit. If there ever was a 5-star inn, Avenue Inn is it.

i have been to new orleans over 20 times (sometimes for work, sometimes for pleasure, sometimes related to our daughter at tulane) and have stayed in a variety of places, mostly uptown. when we recently came to town to visit our daughter, i wanted to try a new place, so we chose the avenue inn, and we're glad we did. the host and hostess, joe and bebe, are charming and welcoming, and the room and the house overall were lovely. we particularly enjoyed having breakfast out on the patio and meeting the other guests. we like to mingle wherever we go, and the avenue inn was a great place for that. we also like the "quiet hour" policy. i don't think i've been to any other lodgings in new orleans where we were not disturbed at least once a night by loud partiers. here it was very calm and quiet. parking was never an issue for us. joe has parkig out back, but i always found a place in front of the inn righ on st-charles. the location is very convenient to tulane, the garden district, audubon park, and the quarter. the st-charles streetcar line runs right in front of the house, but you can also walk to restaurants like commander's palace, superior seafood, upperline (our favorite). also, the new orleans seafood and hamburger company is right next-door to the hotel. the breakfast was appetizing and varied. the housekeepers are efficient and friendly and low-profile. i would also like to add that joe and bebe accommodated our request for a cot, so our daughter could spend one night with us, without a hitch. we look forward to more return visits to the avenue inn.

Avenue Inn Bed & Breakfast is the perfect place to stay in New Orleans. Quite, cozy, convenient, clean, comfortable in a lovely neighborhood that's steeped in history. Joe, Bebe, and Nedra are all very knowledgeable about the city and had many recommendations for restaurants and tours. We could tell that Joe put a lot of thought into the things he told us about the place including but not limited to the room and front door keys, how to get in and out successfully, breakfast time and that you are encouraged to enjoy it in the garden. Right out the front door availability of taxi's, trolley, bus line and Joe knows the cost to ride all of these. Public transportation is a real plus for this location because we were able to get to The French Quarter, Loyola University, the riverfront and Canal Street lines all at the curb (Joe gave us a handy map to keep). Even the drug stores are a short few blocks away for purchase of all those things you can't take on the plane anymore. We highly recommend this beautiful home as the best place to sleep in New Orleans.

If you are hoping to find a conveniently located place to relax in the Big Easy, Avenue Inn fits the bill. Joe and Bebe are gracious hosts and the house is stunning! The beignets next door are some of the best in town. The streetcar stops directly across the street. And, Joe is always willing to provide valuable insight when deciding what to do or where to eat. You won't be sorry!
