We stood at the Avenue Inn for our anniversary. The owners, Bebe and Joe, helped make our visit to the city all that we hoped it would be. Located in the quieter Garden District, the home is gorgeous. Beautifully furnished, comfortable and super clean - I felt as at ease as if staying with family or close friends. Bebe and Joe are awesome hosts! Their knowledge of New Orleans is unparalleled. They can answer questions, make recommendations and arrangements, or just chat with you about all that the city has to offer, both the typical and the offbeat. There is plenty to do and see within walking distance of the inn. With a streetcar stop right in front of the house, you can get anywhere else in the city with ease - it's just a short ride to the French Quarter, museums, and shopping. Transit passes cost only $3/day, are purchased on the streetcar, and are good for all streetcars and buses. It gets no more convenient than that! The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We slept peacefully each night in our air-conditioned room (individual thermostats!) with no noise intruding from outside. Evening walks are beautiful and relaxing, allowing you to see the fine architecture in the area. Or, you can sit on the front porch or patio and just watch the world go by. Breakfast each morning on the patio is a great way to start the day. The coffee is great and always fresh. The pastries are the best I've had, this side of Paris. Words cannot describe them. New Orleans food is amazing! Everywhere we ate was fantastic and there are great places to dine right near the inn. We drove to New Orleans and there is private, off-street parking behind the house. No worries about where to put your car or whether it will be secure. The complementary bottled water and snacks were also most appreciated at the end of a long day. Thank you, Bebe and Joe, for sharing your home with us! We look forward to our next trip to New Orleans and certainly know where we'll be staying!

As international students we needed a central B&B in New Orleans for the first few nights. The Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast is very clean, has good AC (important in the hot summer months) and the breakfast is really tasty. The point I liked the most was the kindness and helpfullness of the 2 owners. Whatever you need, they will fix it! I can just recommend the Avenue Inn, it is the best choice in New Orleans - even the StreetCat stops in front of the house, so you can get to important places quite easily.

Second visit to the Avenue Inn as a new Tulane Parent. Love the Hospitality, the location and value. I recommend to anyone going to NOLA, book with Joe and Bebe at the Avenue Inn B&B.

Really enjoyed the historic rooms and the great location. Very close to the streetcar or a short cab ride to anywhere! Free parking was a bonus as well as the breakfast. Would definitely recommend

Absolutely amazing!!! Everything and so much more than expected! The Inn and property were very charming and inviting. My wife and I stayed in room one, which opens to the beautiful front porch. The room was elegant and impressive, yet very comfortable! We had everything we needed to make for a wonderful stay. It was like a home away from home…but better! We actually had our wedding ceremony there. The innkeepers (Joe and BB) were exceptional and always made sure we had all that we needed. They even made recommendations of restaurants and local attractions that made for a much more pleasurable stay. Each day, our free breakfast consisted of an assortment of the best local bagels, pastries, breads, coffee cakes, fruits, homemade jams and jellies, fresh juice and coffee, and many other things. Nedra, the housekeeper, was delightful to converse with in the morning. She made sure we always had what we needed at breakfast and that our room was clean and stocked with anything we needed. There was always a huge selection of snacks and such available to us at anytime for no cost. After touring the entire area, we learned that this was the ideal location to stay in New Orleans. It is very clean, safe, and in walking distance to many wonderful restaurants and shoppes. There is also a street car stop directly across from the Inn, which makes for easy transportation to more distant destinations of the city. Don't worry about noise or distractions from within your room though. It is extremely quiet and private. Overall, it was a great experience! Whether we decide to have a renewal of vows, or simply escape for the weekend, we hope to stay at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast when we return to New Orleans! -Jonathan and Bianca Hannah

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!
