Joe was extremely helpful in our day-trip planning. Continental breakfast is fantastic, with fresh pastries, fruit, juices, yogurt, cereal, A+ coffee and more. Streetcar stop right out the front door really made our visit perfect, giving us easy access to the city.

Nestled along the tree lined St. Charles Avenue, the Avenue Inn welcomes travelers from all over the world. Your first views of the Inn will be the grand, white historic home and its wrap around porch overlooking a beautiful garden. Joe and Bebe, the Inn Keepers, will greet you personally with chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven. As you sit with them in the living room you cannot help but feel as if you have gone back in time. Everything is so well appointed and classic from the antique furniture to the wallpaper and draperies. The atmosphere and its owners are so inviting you feel as if you have come “home.” Joe and Bebe will give you recommendations on things to do, places to eat and the best ways to get there. They are local experts. They also genuinely care about their guests and take the time to know them so they can ensure you have a wonderful time. Breakfast is “over-the-top” with fresh pastry, warm bagels, cereal, and a warm and inviting table where you can meet other guests and share your day’s plans and yesterday’s adventures. The Avenue Inn is sure to enhance your stay in New Orleans. Enjoy!

My daughter and I stayed at the Avenue Inn B&B for 3 nights. We had a wonderful experience. We stayed in one of their smaller rooms but it was definitely not small. Joe and Bebe go out of their way to help. We had to leave our luggage there for 5 hours after check out and it wasn't an issue. There are always water bottles and many types of snacks available. The Inn is very clean and I love a place with great water pressure for my shower :-) It sits directly on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line and there is a stop right in front....very convenient. I highly recommend the Avenue Inn B&B.

We stayed at the Avenue for 2 nights while visiting Loyola University. We had a lovely stay. The Inn is charming and the hosts provide a breakfast each morning. If you are looking for old world charm - this is the place. The thing I liked the most was that they had "Library Hours" - which meant if you came home after 10PM - you needed to be respectful of other guests. Basically, it means - don't be too loud when coming home after hours! I would stay again!

My daughters and I stayed at the Avenue Inn while we were visiting Tulane. Joe and Bebe could not be more accommodating and welcoming. They made us feel us at home and helped us navigate the city and neighborhood. The house was super special. We will be sure to return. John G - Reading, MA

Joe and Bebe made us feel very welcome with freshly bake cookies ( also vegan cookies for our daughter) as soon as we arrived. The location is very convenient for families visiting Tulane and Loyola Universities. The St. Charles Street car stop is few paces away. The next door seafood and burger restaurant and coffee shop is a blessing for tired guests. Joe and Bebe creates a home-like ambience. We met guest from different states at breakfast. We look forward to visiting Joe and Bebe soon.

When traveling, we prefer staying at bed and breakfast establishments, and have for quite some time. We enjoy staying in places that reflect the locale and provide opportunity for interaction. Avenue Inn presents the best of these considerations, elevated by the attentiveness and helpfulness of Joe and Bebe, the proprietors. They are generous with their insights to the city, are happy to assist with arrangements when possible, and are just darned friendly all the while. The check in welcome ritual is well presented, an obvious result of lots of experience. There is high regard for the guests and their comfort. The property itself is a stunning example of grand New Orleans tradition, and the way it has been treated to accommodate use as a B&B honors its heritage. There are so many reviews already here that, with good reason, rave on the location and the breakfast offered, and all we'll do is agree. Our two cents is mainly about how Avenue Inn is a great example of why we seek out B&Bs, as Joe and Bebe take care and pride in providing a place that is happily steeped in the richness of New Orleans.

We had a great stay at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast! We stayed there from Sunday, September 18th through Thursday morning, September 22nd. Joe and Bebe were great hosts answering all our questions about where to eat, what to do and the best deals on Bourbon Street. We didn’t miss a morning breakfast because there was so much to choose from!! Having the trolley across the street to take us to the French Quarter meant that we didn’t use our rental car except to get to the Inn and to go back to the airport. I highly recommend the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast in the Garden District for your next stay in NOLA!

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while in New Orleans. The Avenue was a stop on the St Charles street car! We parked our car once and never moved it until we checked out 4 days later. We had such fun riding the street cars everywhere! Out first floor room my was immaculate and quiet and comfortable. The breakfasts were all delicious, and Joe and Bebe helped guide us to where we wanted to go. We highly recommend the Avenue and wouldn't stay anywhere else.
