I have stayed with Avenue Garden Hotel in the past - before Katrina. I was pleasantly surprised that the hotel is better than it was before the storm. It is an excellent location for families or groups of people wanting to get together. I found the hotel staff to be excellent and attentive at all times - especially the General... More

My wife had flight coupons that needed to be used before the expiration date. We wanted to go someplace we've never been for a long weekend. We chose New Orleans. Knowing very little about the city or the hotels, I chose to try to save money by using Orbitz.com. We took a shuttle from the airport to the city. We... More

I would definately stay here again. The rooms were nice and the atomosphere was that of a quaint bed and breakfast. The staff were accomodating, helpful and knowledgeable offering information on tours and restaurants. One of the best places we ate was Voo Doo BBQ which is right next door and Stop 9 which is just across the street. I... More

We went down to NOLA for a long weekend and picked this place after a little web searching. Our room was very comfortable and recently renovated. The staff was friendly and helpfull. Emeril's is a 2 block walk away. The Garden District has become a little more sketchy of a neighborhood post Katrina, but is still one of the nicer... More

This hotel was well located and the street car is right outside the door so its so easy to get in and out of the french quarter and bourbon st. The room was perfect for me as a solo traveller, the bed was huge and the decor had an old french feel about it. The staff were very helpful in... More

My husband and I stayed at the Avenue Garden during a slow period, much to our luck. The manager of the hotel, a wonderful and accomodating woman, asked if we'd like to be upgraded to their best room with a balcony overlooking St. Charles. She also asked if we'd like free use of their parking garage since it was available.... More

This place is amazing! My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and loved it. We booked on the website last minute and got a great rate. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. They offer off street parking for $10 a day, which is very affordable and recommended. The location was perfect ~ right on the trolley line.... More

The Avenue Garden Hotel is not for everyone but if you are comfortable with some compromises, it's a good value. We travel often and prefer off-beat, privately owned properties so the Avenue Garden was right up our alley. That said, there are both pros and cons. On the upside, the location in the Garden District is convenient to the street... More

I've stayed in this quaint hotel every time I've been home to visit New Orleans (since Katrina), and each time it gets better. Avenue Garden is now under new ownership, and the lovely Ms. Lydia is simply awesome. She's friendly, and she cares about her guests. She is updating/repairing the rooms, which has been a work in progress since Katrina,... More

This was our first trip to New Orleans so we were clueless as to where to stay and this place was GREAT! A new owner has just taken over and was working the check-in desk when we arrived. She was fabulous and helpful and directed us the the ACME Oyster House in the French Quarter for dinner, which was perfect.... More
