Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else

4.6 on May 24, 2014

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.


excellent B&B on st-charles avenue

5 on May 14, 2014

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.


Best B&B

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.


Look no further

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!


Wonderful stay

Don't visit New Orleans, live it!

5 on April 01, 2014

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!

Innkeeper Response
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!


Perfect Choice

4.8 on March 28, 2014

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

Innkeeper Response
You are very welcome! Hope to see you again soon!


The Perfect Place

5 on March 22, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.


Stay with friends!

Joe and Bebe are truly great people to stay with. The house is in a great location. There are great restaurants nearby. There is abundant parking. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. They run a great place to stay and they do whatever they can to help you. This was a business and pleasure trip. They helped with both. We got reservations to the most popular restaurants. I could not get reservations at the Commanders Palace. One call from Joe and we got in immediately! They told us of the "must see" places and "must do" things. I even got good counsel on the business conditions and where New Orleans is going. Why would I stay anywhere else? We will be back! Mark and Jean

Innkeeper Response
Secret: Innkeepers have some great connections and we were glad that we could help these folks experience Commander's Palace!


Great place to stay
