My wife and I have stayed at several places during our visits to New Orleans. Michelle & Bob, the hosts at Elysian Fields made this our best visit so far. The Inn is a beautiful house just down the street from the music clubs on Frenchmen Street and a block away from the new street car line on Rampart / St Claude. Every morning we had a delicious breakfast and got a chance to talk about New Orleans with our hosts and other guests. We were joined by two friends that have never stayed at a B&B, and this trip showed them why we prefer to stay with locals over a hotel chain. When Michelle found out this trip was to celebrate my friend's birthday, she brought out a bottle of champagne which we enjoyed on the huge front porch. The rooms are very clean and well decorated. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting New Orleans.
We had our 2nd stay at Lion's Inn B & B and we enjoy the location, within walking distance from restaurants and nighttime entertainment. The pool area is clean and relaxing after a long day of attending festivals. I do recommend staying at Lion's Inn B & B when you are in the NOLA area.
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.
A former plantation house as a bed and breakfast. We stayed one night. After a cheese and wine reception with the owner followed a 3 course meal. Because of no other guest we had the house for us during the night. It was a great experience to live like a plantation house owner for one night.
My wife and I celebrated our second anniversary at La Belle Esplanade. It is a uniquely restore old home on Les Esplanade halfway between the French Quarter and spacious city park. The tree lined a esplanade was a great walk in either direction. Matthew and Melanie were gracious hosts with great ideas to make our stay unique and not the typical tourist trip. We have a new home when we go back to visit New Orleans.
Canal Street Inn exceeded my expectations. The pictures online don't give it justice. The room I stayed in was the Royal Street Room and it was beautiful. The staff was wonderful and breakfast was amazing. I slept good every night. There is nothing that I would change about the place. Thank you all for the wonderful service. Love Chardee.
Was our first time staying at B&B and everything was wonderful! Very relaxing weekend.....the breakfasts were AMAZING! Would def go back. Michelle and Bob recommended slot of things to do in the area and we enjoyed the ones we tried
My husband and I very much enjoyed outer stay at the La Dauphine bed and breakfast. It was the perfect distance to Frenchman Street (the best night life), and also walkable to the French Quarter and Bourbon. We would walk to the Quarter in the morning, walk back to Frenchman at night, and then back to our room after. The room was also very nice and we were even provided a map of the best streets to walk down when we arrived. Highly recommended.
3rd stay at Lanaux Mansion. Frenchman St and the French Market 2 blocks away in either direction. The room was so well appointed that I took photos. Ruth was such a kind and caring hostess. Highly recommended!
This is a lovely upscale B and B, with amazing breakfasts, all the tea and coffee and cookies and so on you could want, great decor, a pleasant patio and porch, and very comfortable sleeping and bathroom facilities. The Esplanade Ridge area is a great choice for a New Orleans visit, and there's ample parking and easy cabs and so on. Chatting with the Ashtons, who are know everything about the city, was one of the high points of our visit. We'll definitely stay there again.
This is my go-to place when I visit New Orleans! Philip and David are perfect hosts, and have wonderful suggestions on sights and restaurants. It's in the Marigny, just a short walk to Frenchmen Street and the Quarter, and a great place to come "home" to at the end of the day. I cannot recommend Royal Street Courtyard enough!
Matthew and Melanie create a super-friendly atmosphere in their cozy B&B. They are superlative hosts. Great conversations, great local guidance in a convenient location (15 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride to the French Quarter). The decor is pure NOLA. In a safe neighborhood, there are a couple clubs and restaurants nearby. We stayed 5 days and looked forward to our morning breakfasts which included interesting guests and Matthew's daily report on where he picked up the the fresh pastries riding his Vespa. Guests shared their NOLA adventures and plans for the day, which was great 'intel' for first time NOLA visitors. If you want a unique place to stay in this unique city, this is the place. Not 'fancy', just extremely well-done. All of it.
Had a great time at Ashton's. They think of all the little details that make a stay that much more enjoyable. Fantastic food! The Ashtons were great in giving us recommendations for each day on places to dine, places to visit and how to best get around town. We will definitely be back!
My wife and I have stayed at this place a few times and highly encourage you to choose this place. The rooms are beautiful, with hard wood floors, comfortable beds and tastefully decorated. When you walk in you can see the attention to detail that has been put into the house with regards to comfort, style and attention to detail all tailored to make you feel at home. The location is excellent for walking to the French Quarter or Frenchman St. which is a few blocks away. This is perfect to go experience the craziness of the Quarter and just far enough away to relax and get away from it when your done. As wonderful as this place is the best part of it is Michelle and Bob (the owners) by far. Their hospitality, cheerfulness and friendliness make you feel as if you'r old friends or relatives dropping by for a visit rather than just some client. So my question to you is this, why stay at another mundane hotel where you're simply the nameless faceless client in room 45 when you can be a welcomed guest of Elysian Fields where they will happily greet you at the door and make you feel like this is where you belong. Choose wisely my friends. Anthony Aleman
I have stayed at Lions Inn several times and I really love the place. It is a ten minute walk to the French Quarter and seven to Frenchman Street. The grounds are a tropical oasis and the rooms are well appointed and clean. Ed and Nipper the mascot are welcoming to all who enter Lions Inn. Breakfast in the morning is enough to get you going for the day. Lions Inn is a wonderful safe, welcoming environment in a wonderful historical city.
I stayed here for 5 nights for a conference and to visit my son at Tulane. The Abby Cottage is apparently a best kept secret, not pictured on their site. It has a small kitchen and was very quiet, separate from the rest of the home. While perhaps not as elegantly decorated as some of the other rooms, it was perfect. Tom and Patricia go out of their way to make everyone feel at home and are the perfect innkeepers. The best part of my stay was the breakfast. It's a very inviting, home cooking experience which encouraged engagement with other travelers (quite diverse, England, Australia, Arizona). A+ recommendation.
great everything, just one issue, all night long you can see the bright light in the hallway from underneath the door (a medium gap). its visible from the bed so with that taken care of i would totally recommend this place again. To the credit of the Fairchild, i was not able to check if that light was one that I could turn off since we always seemed to be coming and going from our patio door.
Spent 4 days with friends and couldn't be more satisfied. Bob and Michelle are the perfect hosts. They go out of their way to ensure you have a great time. Located within walking distance to the Quarter but in a quiet residential area. Outstanding breakfasts are icing on the cake.
Beautiful place to stay- it's all the special little touches that add to the experience. Luxury sheets, robes, beautiful patio area, gorgeous rooms. A breakfast specially prepared that's fit for a king! The proprietors are so friendly and helpful - make your stay truly exceptional!! Patrick and Karma ' you made our stay wonderful!

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!
My Daughter and myself were looking for accommodation in the heart of the old part of New Orleans rather than the main area with all the large hotels, and came across the Crescent City Guest House, after some exchange of emails we booked for 3 nights. Matt met us at the front gate and showed us around, you enter into a communal area where you can sit and relax and enjoy the self serves breakfast, the fridge was well stocked with bagels, fruit, juice’s, milk, with a assortment of cereals, which you could help yourself to 24 hours a day. Our room was a good size, very nicely decorated, with a good size bathroom with every extra you could thing of. Our room and the communal area were kept immaculately clean. The positioning of the B&B was perfect, a few streets away from Frenchman street, 10 minuets walk to Bourbon street, and the heart of the French quarter, but just far enough away for a peaceful nights sleep. Matt and Lynn were both on hand for anything you need; they booked us a taxi for 6.30am the day we left and were even up to see us off. The B&B may not look 5 star from the outside but inside is a completely different story, we would have no hesitation in staying hear again or highly recommending this B&B. Thank you both for a wonderful stay, Chris & Melissa
