My husband and I stayed at the Gentry House for the New Orleans stop on our honeymoon and had a lovely time. The room was cosy and comfortable (4* Orleans), but still big enough for us to spread out our suitcases with room to spare. The kitchenette was useful for breakfast and the bathroom was small, but who spends their... More

Gentry House is located perfectly a few blocks away from the lively heart of French Quarter. Though still in the Quarter, it is located just the right distance away of the bars so you can actually sleep at night. The owners live in the back house, while the 2 other houses around the cute patio are split in small flats... More

I am almost reluctant to review the Gentry House, since it's such a bargain. It's one of my favorite off-the-beaten-path places to stay. There are some things you should consider before booking, however! It's a few blocks from Bourbon Street (just a couple doors off Rampart). This can be a plus, or minus, depending on your preference. It's very safe... More

We appreciate the feedback … but can’t helping think it would have been even more useful if the guest mentioned it during the visit: we emphasize to all we’ll provide more orange juice, clean towels, linens, toilet paper, coffee, soft drinks and even light bulbs (can’t see how we missed that) to anyone who asks (we live across the courtyard,...

We love hearing when things go well ... but we probably learn more from hearing about things that didn't go well. During the guests' visit, New Orleans was going through a heat wave -- our fans and window units obviously didn't keep entirely up in our 1820's house. We are perplexed by the bedbug report: the unit was checked by... More

Our initial arrival was tentative. We had caught the airport shuttle and after everyone else had been dropped off at their luxurious looking hotels, we were delivered to our address. The street frontage was only a security gate with no sign to indicate we were at the right place and I was a bit taken aback - I would certainly... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Gentry House. We rented the Orleans room. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and felt right at home. It was like having our own little efficiency apartment. Our hosts, Brian and Charlotte were very knowledgeable and helpful. They recommended a great parking garage for us since there is really no parking to be had... More

Charlotte and Brian are great hosts (and so are their little dachshunds). We stayed the Toulouse room and it was amazingly spacious and as clean as you can find in NOLA. Kitchen fully functional and was stocked with the basics for dishes which was nice since the food in NOLA was more expensive than I predicted (nice to eat in... More

Four of us stayed in the St. Anne suite for a weekend. The suite has two bedrooms, a living room, full kitchen stocked with milk, juice, coffee,fruit and cereal, and a private bathroom. And of course, I have to mention the warm, delicious croissants that they deliver each morning. Very tasty! The beds were comfortable and the suite very cozy.... More

The Gentry House was a complete waste of money.. The bed had to be the worst bed I have ever slept in. My wife and I immediately "rolled" right to the middle of the bed. The couch was even worse than the bed (if that is possible). When I asked for new towels they were NOT provided. The only positives... More

We’re genuinely sorry the guests didn’t enjoy their stay with us. The bed, by the way, was a Serta Perfect Night purchased in 2009. And we make no claims for the couch; it’s provided only for overflow “emergencies.” It’s certainly possible that we forgot that they had asked for fresh towels; we initially stock the room with two full sets...
