A very interesting property - a pool in NOLA!

4.4 on April 17, 2017

Really enjoyed our stay. Loved the pool and hot tub. Perfect for after a day or evening of exploring and partying. Nice people, just wished there was a chance to meet everyone such as a wine sipping at 5 p.m. Will definitely consider it next visit! Also the hosts were just exceptional. Wonderful. :)

Best Inn stay yet!

We stayed at The Green House Inn over St. Patrick's Day weekend 2017, and it was our first stay with Jesse and Frank, but will definitely NOT be our last! We had an absolutely phenomenal visit; The Green House is a beautiful, very special space within the already amazing city of New Orleans. Jesse and Frank have created a welcoming, relaxing place to meet other people (or not if you choose!), and are some of the more most gracious hosts we've ever encountered in our many years of visiting B&B's and Inns. The pool area, in particular, is stunning: it's a tropical oasis in the middle of the city. We actually ended up spending more time relaxing in the pool and hot tub, meeting other guests and talking until the wee hours of the morning, than we had planned and skipped some of the sight-seeing we had scheduled in order to do so. I cannot recommend The Green House highly enough! Scott & Chris Curtis

The Green House Inn is a truly special space!

We had the pleasure of staying with Jesse and Frank over the St. Patrick's Day holiday weekend this year, and all I can say is that they pictures don't even begin to convey how special a place they have created! We made friends that we believe will be lifelong; we were able to relax in a way that we have never relaxed anywhere else. It actually made us sad to have to leave, and that was a first for us. This place and the way it brings people together is exceptional... We will be back!

Tropical oasis in NOLA

5 on March 09, 2017

We have been coming back to the Greenhouse for almost seven year and it is the only place we will stay in NOLA. This last year were there for Voodoo Fest and then back the first weekend in March. As soon as we leave, we start looking for when we can come back again. The location is prefect, four blocks from the World War 2 Museum and Emeril's Delmonico. You can walk to the French Quarter or avoid the tourists by walking down Magazine to explore the Lower Garden District. You are 4 blocks away from Saint Charles Street where you can catch the trolley or walk 5 blocks down Magazine to some of the best shopping and dining in NOLA. Frank the manager is an truly an amazing gem. He remembers you and gives you an update and recommendations on what to try that is new, and will make sure the hot tub is ready when you come back down from putting you clothes away. One year we were there for our anniversary, and my girlfriend call to see if they could arrange for champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Frank couldn't find any so he made them himself. They were better than Shari's Berries. You can tell that for Jesse, the owner, the Inn is a labor of love as well. He will always ask you if there is anything you need, and since he is a native he can give you recommendations for places only the locals know. The neighborhood keeps getting better and better. The "Barrel House" across the street specializes in dark liqueurs and the cocktails are creative and tasty. You have to try bars pop up kitchen food, the beef frits were outstanding. The "French Truck" coffee shop and roaster on the corner is also a nice option, if you need something more involved than the Greenhouse coffee for breakfast. The "Courtyard Brewery" is right behind the hotel and has some really good local beers and brings in different food trucks to keep it interesting. We are planning our next trip there.

Great choice

4.0 on February 20, 2017

Very nice & clean place, very friendly owner. Several coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance. Only 15 min to the New Orleans Convention Center, but also only a 25 min walk from the French Quarter. I would stay there again. (The score for Onsite Dining is meaningless because the inn has no restaurant. It should be Not Applicable but that option is not available.)

Wonderful Folks at the Green House

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!

4.2 on December 13, 2016

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.
