Wonderful Folks at the Green House

3.8 on January 28, 2017

We stayed at the Greenhouse while visiting a relative in New Orleans and chose it because of its central location. It was right on the mark as we walked to many restaurants and museums, the French Quarter and in to the Upper Garden District. Jesse was very helpful with local knowledge and Frank was about the nicest person anyone could ever want to deal with. Whereas there are undoubtedly more luxurious inns in hipper neighborhoods, the Green House value was exceptional.

Unique tropical oasis in NOLA

2.8 on December 31, 2016

This is a very unique oasis next to the arts district in NOLA. It is operated by a gay couple and the swimming pool area is clothes optional. So, if you are offended by natural states of being, in all phases, might want to look elsewhere. Because it was Christmas, we were pretty much the only guest there. A few rooms were rented out for a night or two, but we were the only ones there for most of our week stay. We enjoyed the hot tub and the beautiful tropical patio area...even the occasional recorded parrot calls. The bed was too soft for our taste and left both myself and my wife hurting with soar backs. The sofa in the room probably would have been turned down by Goodwill, which I found a bit offensive for the price of the stay. Overall, a very great place to disappear into in NOLA.

Love this place!

Beautiful rooms and pool area. Wonderfully landscaped, a tropical oasis!

An excellent B&B choice!

We stayed a few night over thanksgiving and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's a beautiful old house with plenty of charm. The backyard and pool/spa area is definitely the cherry on top. We'll definitely stay there again soon!

Bed yes breakfast no

Adequate rooms, continental breakfast only, would not call this a bed and breakfast more like bed and cereal.

Oct. vacation

4.0 on November 06, 2016

This is our second trip to the Green House Inn and both Jesse and Frank made us feel like family. The location is great with the trolley and the hop in/hop off bus near by. Would recommend this inn to others for their New Orleans stay.

Innkeeper Response
Hello, It was great to have y'all stay with us again! As you noted, we are very centrally located. Only 3 blocks away from the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line and 3 blocks away form the Hop On/Hop Off tour bus stop (located outside of the World War II museum). Thanks again for leaving us your review here! Sincerely, The staff of The Green House Inn

Pleasantly surprised

4.2 on November 03, 2016

Located in a very convenient part of town to great restaurants, the garden district and the convention center. Owner and staff were very hospitable and helpful. Pool and jacuzzi a plus for relaxing. However, the European rule of bathing took us by surprise and made us uncomfortable. Though we were able to enjoy the pool the first few days, it limited our using it the rest of the stay - :(.

Innkeeper Response
Hello, Thank you for leaving us your review here on Bed&! I apologize that you were surprised by our clothing optional pool policy. We try to make sure every guest is informed of this policy well before the check in date. We would love to have you stay with us again! Humbly, The staff of The Green House Inn

Best in NOLA

5 on October 17, 2016

This is the only place we will stay in NOLA. Located in Lower Garden District, it is a short walk to CBC, Warehouse, and French Quarter. The surrounding area has plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops. The vibe at the inn is completely laid back and Jessie, Frank, and Alan are friendly and knowledgeable. The pool area is shaded by the tropical paradise, the neighbor even has a parrot that you will see from time to time! The rooms are comfortable, the bathrooms modern, and the bedding soft and cozy.

Innkeeper Response
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, here at The Green House Inn! We agree that Rio, our neighbor's Blue MaCaw parrot, adds to our tropical ambience, too. Thank you for your review! Many Thanks, The staff of The Green House Inn

Lovely Spot
