Another awesome stay at CCGH!

4.6 on June 30, 2015

This was my 2nd trip to CCGH. It was fabulous yet again. Matt and Lynn are so accommodating and go out of their way to work with you on check in! The guesthouse is just adorable and feels like home. They keep an amazing choice of breakfast items on hand that are available anytime of day! The courtyard is gorgeous and one day I hope to come much longer than 4 nights. We packed in such a full itinerary that we left no down time for having coffee or a glass of wine in the courtyard. The location? Couldn't be better! You are 2.5 blocks from the best music in the city on Frenchmen St(some of the best food nearby too!). We took our bikes and had a blast riding the Marigny, Bywater and Quarter. We will definitely be returning!

I try other b&b's on occassion and always return here!

So many details taken care of that I can't even begin to list them. We've been staying here for 5 years now. Things I love about it: Matt & Lynn- the friendly owners, super clean, so many decorative details & things ready for you that you may have forgotten, the garden, the help yourself kitchen so you can sleep in after late music night, the fact that there's only 4 rooms, the quiet street, the walking distance to frenchmen st., the walkability of surrounding neighborhoods, the books, the shared room, no noisy bachelor parties, the videos, the snacks, fruit and tea when you need a boost and of course the affordability. It also attracts a certain type of independant traveler so it's nice to meet people in the common room & share experiences. Every now & then, we have to stay someplace else because they're booked and it never compares.

Terrific NOLA Visit

This place is great! Conveniently located in the Marigny and accessible to the Quarter and the Bywater for breakfast at Elizabeth's. Clean, quiet at night and very affordable with a nice backyard to lounge in the evening. The owners, Matt and Lynn, couldn't be nicer and stock the kitchen with plenty of goodies for breakfast. The next time we're in NOLA, this is where we'll stay once again.

Exactly what we were looking for

Communication was great, location was great, Room was great (and quiet). We were looking for someplace close to the French Quarter so we could easily walk around and enjoy just being there.Cresent City Guest House was just perfect for this.

Great, comfy cozy B&B to stay at!

I've stayed here in the past with my family and with friends and have looooved my stay! Matt and Lynn are the sweetest, most courteous and respectful hostesses. The house is private and the location is within walking distance to everything! Definitely recommend!!!

Great, great, great!!!!!!!!

We had a great stay! Having self made breakfast (at any time!) was really practically. Lynn was so nice and both owners thought of everything - umbrellas, charge cables as we forgot our adapter, lots of information brochures and so on... You only have a five minutes walk to Frenchmen Street - much more nicer than Bourbon Street.. The neighbourhood is cosy, quiet and safe.WOW!!! Do it! Stay there!!

FQ fest

Great time staying at the Crescent City Guest House

4.4 on April 13, 2015

My wife and I were extremely please with our stay at the Crescent City Guest House. It was the 10th anniversary of our first trip to New Orleans with each other.Lynn was awesome in arranging our stay and then waiting up for us as our delayed plane meant that our arrival was near 3 Am. Everything was clean and very welcoming. We slept great every night and only saw one set of other guests a few times. It is only a few blocks away from Frenchmen St so extremely convenient while being calm and quiet. There are also some really cool restaurants nearby in the Marigny. All in all, it was an awesome trip full of great food sights, music and drinks. We can't wait to return. Thanks!

Excellent Location

This was our second stay at the Crescent City Guest House. Lynn and Matt have been extremely accommodating. They have their guests' interests in mind as they provide a a variety of items that make a stay in N. O. more enjoyable. Right next to the outside door, they provide umbrellas, sunscreen, a small first aid kit, paper maps of the Quarter and the Marigny, just to name a few. My wife and I appreciate its closeness (two blocks) to Frenchmen St., our favorite locale for listening to live music. Additionally, the CCGH is close to several neighborhood restaurants. We also appreciate the 24-hour access to the continental breakfast food items, juices, water, and coffee. The two rooms we have stayed in are spacious and the bathrooms for both are huge.

Our recent stay

5 on March 31, 2015

Having stayed here before we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. Everything was wonderful with every little detail thought of at the guest house and the easy 5 minute walk to the French Quarter was perfect. The back yard is richly landscaped including water features which makes it the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a day if sight seeing. Matt Herring recommended dining at Adolfo's on Frenchmen Street (a three minute walk away on a street with many clubs and restaurants) and it was the best meal we had in New Orleans at a price that was fantastic. The breakfast is self-serve, continental style with many types of breads, fruits, and cereals which are also available anytime during the day or evening for a snack.
