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!

I stole the title of my review from the website. After staying at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast, I discovered the feel of what it might be like living in New Orleans. Not just visiting. My husband and I fell in love with the Inn and New Orleans. Its a beautifully restored historical home. You feel at home and welcomed by Joe, the owner and staff. The Inn is in the beautiful Garden District. Trolley car is right out front. We parked in the front of the Inn every day. They have their own parking in the rear. At no cost which is a bargain in New Orleans because parking anywhere is expensive. Hotels in New Orleans can sometimes charge $25 and up to park in their hotel. The rooms are filled with beautiful antiques, quiet and friendly mornings with other guests which I looked forward to. We would have breakfast and share what we did the day before, where we were going that day, share where we lived, etc. Joe always had suggestions of where to go or eat. Take advantage of his experience of the area. All excellent suggestions. Can't wait to return!
Shared this with our staff and they were so pleased to see that this guest "got it with regards to our tag line about living New Orleans!

Five star experience at this lovely bed and breakfast in New Orleans. Wanted a special place to stay for our 45th anniversary and feel that we made a great choice. Our elegantly decorated room had a king bed, fireplace, dining area and private bath. It was nice to just park our car and ride the bus and trolley to the French Quarter. The bus stopped just across the street and we found it easy to get around. We would definitely stay again. Thank You Joe & Bebe
You are very welcome! Hope to see you again soon!

We stayed during Mardi Gras and watched some of the parades from the rockers on the front porch. Despite the noise outside our room in the front of the house was very quiet. The innkeepers, Joe and Bebe know how to add that personal touch which makes you feel right at home. We can't wait to go back.
Mardi Gras is the bomb! It should be on everyone's bucket list. And the bonus is that you can still get a good night's sleep after the parades pass the mansion.
