Gorgeous Getaway

5 on November 10, 2014

Me and my friend were in New Orleans for the National Association of Realtors convention. Joe and Bebe made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to have an enjoyable and successful convention. Transportation was a breeze and there is a great place right down the block with awesome pomegranate mojitos! The house is gorgeous and clean and the beds slept very well. I will definitely make another trip to The Avenue Inn Bed & Breakfast!


Beautiful way to experience New Orleans

5 on October 27, 2014

This was an absolutely ideal location and Joe and Bebe make it feel like home. It is so very comfortable and peaceful and just a short street car ride to most of the places we wished to visit. We ate breakfast each morning on the front porch and enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere of St. Charles Ave. Joe was a great host and gave us first rate advice on the tourist scenes and restaurants and how to best enjoy the WWII Museum. I recommend the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast to anyone wishing to see and experience New Orleans.


Beautiful Inn!

4.4 on October 16, 2014

The Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast is not only charming but in a wonderful location. The trolley is directly across the street making it very convenient for those going to the French Quarter. The hosts Joe and Bebe and their lovely housekeeper could not be more knowledgeable and accommodating. The room was lovely and quiet and the front porch was a wonderful place to have coffee in the morning as well as a place to unwind after a hectic day. The complimentary breakfast was more that adequate with a variety of breads, pastries, cereal, coffee, tea etc. We look forward to returning in the future.


Excellent Experience

3.4 on October 15, 2014

Stayed for four nights and would definitely return in the future. Great location. Easy in/out of the city yet far enough away for peace and relaxation. Street car literally steps away. Joe & Bebe very gracious hosts and take really good care of you.


Wonderful value and great location!

5 on October 06, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Room was spacious and bed was very comfortable. Very quite and serene surroundings and especially enjoyed sitting outside enjoying a delicious continental breakfast. Joe, our host, was very helpful in directing us to great restaurants and even locating a church within walking distance. This is a wonderful place located in the Garden District. Great value!


Awesome stay at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast

5 on September 23, 2014

We stood at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast 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!


Awesome B&B

5 on August 20, 2014

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 Bed and Breakfast, 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.


Love it!

Second visit to the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast 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 Bed and Breakfast.


Excellent Stay

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


A lovely stay and wedding ceremony

5 on August 05, 2014

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
