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.

We have stayed here twice while visiting Tulane and this is the only place we will stay when we come back. The home is beautiful and Joe and Bebe make you feel like you are an old friend coming back to visit. Each visit was wonderful and the home and neighborhood are very quiet and peaceful. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience the excitement and fun of New Orleans, but retreat to a quiet, peaceful room to sleep or for downtime. Thanks Joe and Bebe!

We stayed at Avenue Inn for our first trip to NOLA and our 10th anniversary. Our stay was exceptional. Upon arriving we were warmly greeted by the owners and instantly made to feel at home. When they found out it was our anniversary trip we were upgraded to bigger room! The house itself is charming and retains much of the original character, but with modern amenities. It’s very clean and well taken care of. We drove down and had safe off street parking, but didn’t use our car because getting in and around the city was a breeze since a street car stop was right outside the front door. Although breakfast was continental, it was very well done with a variety of different items to eat every morning. They have a beautiful front patio where we ate breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone.

Loved sitting on the veranda watching the trolley cars and all the people going by. The pastries and coffee cakes for breakfast were "melt in your mouth". Service when needed was immediate and the staff were kind and accommodating.
