Much More

4.6 on November 07, 2017

We came for the "European Attitude" pool and court area but we will come back for so much more. We couldn't wait to come down for breakfast each day just to mingle with other guests while our marvelous host, Jesse, held court on the attractions, culture and history of the city as well as engaging recollections on his colorful life. It never got old. If you're willing to walk, the GHI is ideally situated among the Garden and Warehouse Districts, the Superdome, the French Quarter and the Riverfront. If not, all are a short taxi or Uber ride away. Did i say that the GHI is only steps away from the incomparable WWII museum? In all, just a marvelous and memorable stay. We will return!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Like you, many of our guest are pleasantly surprised at our centralized location and the ease of reaching many of New Orlean's sights (including the WW II museum). We are looking forward to your next stay with us!

Relaxing In a Busy City

4.0 on October 19, 2017

Wife and I were in New Orleans for a big cycling event. We were able to ride from the Inn to the Superdome for the ride. Afterwards a soak in the hot tub was amazing. We spent a day and a half walking the Magazine Street and St. Charles Ave neighborhoods, finding many places to eat and some great shops. But chilling out in the clothing optional pool and hot tub was the most relaxing part of our trip.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for posting your review here on B& We are thrilled that y'all enjoyed your stay during the cycling event! As you noted, our saltwater jetted hot tub is the perfect way to unwind after a day exploring New Orleans. We would love to have y'all stay with us again!

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The location was fantastic. Our room was perfect and located right off of the pool and Jacuzzi. We met great people during our stay. We are very pleased that we were able to walk to bourbon street and all of the great restaurants. We will definitely be booking this hotel again.

We booked two nights here at the suggestion of friends who'd previously stayed on the property and who were meeting us in NO for the weekend. From my he moment we booked online, the experience was great!? We were contacted quickly after our reservation was made, and communications were efficient and prepared us well for our visit. We arrived a few hours early and were greeted with a smile. We were given maps of the city, directions to orient us to the area, keys and a tour of the property and it was like we were home. Our room was on the first floor by the door. Turned out to be a great spot as we had an extra sink and mirror in the room so my wife could do make up while I showered. The pool and hot tub were fantastic, and you'd never know all of that was hidden behind a wall of greenery from the street. Towels are provided for the pool as well as robes if desired. Our bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, and the coffee was fresh and hot! We will return for sure.

As good as it gets outside the French Quarter

Great Place to Stay in NOLA

3.8 on July 20, 2017

I strongly recommend this jewel of a bed and breakfast. It is a destination in itself but also close to the French Quarter in New Orleans so it's easy to get around to enjoy the city.

NOLA Trip with Friends

I'm not sure we could have found a more ideally located B&B from which to base our NOLA adventure. The Green House Inn was everything we could hope for. The proprietors treasure this oasis and it shows. We're already considering a return visit, once again basing our stay from the GHI.

Wonderful place to relax and "just be".

We always have the most amazing time when we visit the Green House Inn. This past time we met some of the other regular guests of the Inn and were delighted to spend time with them poolside. The Inn itself is a rare treasure. I highly recommend that visitors read the website completely and do ask questions about the pool. Jesse and Frank are both gracious and accommodating hosts. They are very knowledgeable about New Orleans and the Garden District and can direct guests to any type of wonderful restaurant bar or tourist venue. the Inn is for 18 and over guests, and is pet friendly. The pool is an oasis in the middle of New Orleans and the Inn is within walking distance of several tourist sites. I highly recommend this for a Romantic Get Away for couples.
