My wife and I spent 6 nights at the Avenue Garden Hotel starting the day after Mardi Gras and the staff could not have been more helpful or accomodating. The streetcar stops right in front of the hotel whichever direction you want to go, whether heading towards the end of the line up Carrolton for some nice restaurants along the... More

Great location to watch Mardi Gras parades. Staff was friendly and motivated to ensure guests enjoyed themselves. A great continental breakfast was provided as well as snacks and coffee all day. Only drawback was the price to park - a bit more than the average N.O. hotel. We will definitely stay at the hotel again.

This hotel is run by the nicest people in the world! If you are unfamiliar with New Orleans this is the place to stay. The staff is incredibly helpful in helping you find where you need to go and making recommendations for things to do. The hotel itself is located right along the path of one of New Orleans best...

My friend and I stayed at this cute little hotel for a weekend, and we absolutely LOVED it. The staff were fantastic (Manfread even bought us special cream cheese for our bagels in the morning!) - they were helpful, nice, accomodating, and friendly. The location was great - right on historic St. Charles Ave, where you can take a streetcar... More

The staff at this hotel were professional, warm and extremely friendly. In fact in all my travels I have not come across a more "down-to-earth" bunch. Interaction with them was excellent.

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
