“Creole Gardens an excellent stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2006

Creole Gardens guesthouse and bed/breakfast is a wonderful place to stay with New Orlean's flare and fun. We stayed in the "cottages" each with a unique and comfortable decorated style. The staff were excellent and assisted us to make our stay comfortable. Creole Gardens also extended a sense of social responsibility in assisting us in our volunteer work at the Animal Rescue League of New Orleans. Visit them for a great stay in an open, friendly and excellent location!

We took a group of 14 of us down to New Orleans and had an incredibly hectic schedule from 8 am - midnight for 10 days. And the staff was simply fabulous. They were incredibly flexible with our needs (which were ridiculous), they provided us with all the extra space we needed, and made us feel both at home and at work in the common rooms. The food cooked by Ms. Girtley made us all that much more welcomed, and Uly, Maddie, and Ms. Girtley create such a warm home away from home. Even if I dont need a place to stay when I return, I'll still come by just to visit them!

If you're doing any long or short term work in New Orleans and need a solid base, this is absolutely the place to do it. Walking distance to anything you'd need (at least if its up and running in New Orleans), and everyone is friendly and wants to help you do the work you're doing. I cannot recommend this place higher - they even let us host a poetry workshop and some of the guests participated too! Amazing staff, amazing place (beautiful!), amazing breakfast, amazing place in a city that needs it. Full of love, care, and hospitality beyond belief.

Stayed here while attending a conference and really enjoyed our stay here within this whimsical collection of candy-colored buildings. Everytime we returned from meetings or exploring the city, it was such a welcome relief from the heat and stress to come in to our lovely yellow room with super-high ceilings and super-cool a/c. Stayed in the mansion, room 3, with large windows, nice wood floors, and a clawfoot tub in the bathroom. These are older buildings full of character, but no elevators - we'll pack lighter next time! Would definitely stay here again.

My fiancee and I went down to New Orleans to do volunteer work to help with the aftermath of the hurricane and the staff welcomed us with open arms! They made us feel so welcome and the place was so cozy and fun. There is a center plaza area that's really great to relax and meet people. We would definnitely go back next time in New Orleans.

New Orleans is very much alive! We just recently stayed at Creole Gardens for second weekend Jazz Fest post Katrina. It was so reassuring to see a great smile upon arriving to the Bed and Breakfast. The staff (that was more like family) made us feel right at home. Doing small things that big hotels would most defiantly charge for made the trip that much more personal and comfortable. Would stay again and will recommend to family and friends for future stays.

The staff at the Creole Gardens were fabulous, friendly and outgoing! The Bordello Room we stayed in was so beautiful! I had a great time there and would have liked to have stayed longer. I will definitely return to this B&B.
Thanks for everything and keep up the good work :o)

I just came back from the Jazz Fest in N.O. and stayed at the Creole Gardens Guesthouse while there. It was an absolutely lovely stay. The room was beautiful, clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The location was convenient to downtown, the French Quarter and Magazine Street, which was great. Even though the St. Charles streetcar isn't working, it didn't inconvenience us at all. I would absolutely recommend this B&B and would have no reservations about staying with them again, when I return to N.O!
