“Wonderful getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We chose the Avenue Inn based on its location and past reviews. What a great decision! We couldn't have done better! It was a great location, away from the noise of the French Quarter, yet right on the streetcar line for easy access to everything. Our room was beautiful, with 12 foot ceilings and filled with period furniture. Despite being right on the streetcar line, our room was very quiet.

The continental breakfast was quite extensive and there were always snacks available. The large front porch and courtyard area exuded southern charm. Our hosts Joe and Bebe were always there if we needed anything, but unobtrusive so that we felt "at home". We are already planning another trip and will definitely stay at Avenue Inn.

Glad they found the location to be convenient. We hear that often from folks who have stayed only in the French Quarter. Staying away just a bit has a nice advantage. Thanks for the wonderful comments about our mansion home.

The Avenue B&B is a lovely property in the Garden District, right on the St Charles streetcar line. Both my daughter and I had good sleeps in comfortable beds, despite the proximity of traffic. Joe & Bebe were very kind, giving us excellent recommendations for restaurants, making reservations, organizing taxi, tours etc. They really couldn't do enough for us.

Room Tip: I think any room in this establishment would provide a good night's sleep and a place to relax a...

I wanted to write a little review even though I didn't actually end up staying at the inn. I showed up after dark and realized that it was actually too far from the neighborhood where I needed to be (it's in the beautiful garden district, and I needed to be close to a friend staying in Bywater). Joe was extremely accomodating and actually helped me find another place. The inn, by the way, was grand and elegant, and I got a look at the bedrooms, which were quite nice.
I was very grateful for the help and generousity.

My husband and I stayed one night for a short anniversary getaway and this was the perfect place for it. It was close enough to the city but still very peaceful at night. The service was excellent and it was very clean. The location felt safe and the overall experience was exactly what we were looking for.

Excellent service and a beautiful historic home. The host and his wife were extremely helpful in getting around town and welcoming us to NOLA. The room was beautiful and felt like something out of a historic magazine, they were also very clean with beautiful fixtures. The breakfast wasn't too special but with so many places near by for great food, a light breakfast is all you need. We will most def. come back!

We love making birthdays special. So glad that this guest enjoyed the visit. Continental breakfast is what we advertise and offer. And just like they mentioned, so many world class places to eat and so little time....most of our guests are very happy with a light breakfast. Hope to see these folks back soon.

Myself and my daughter stayed two nights here in September since she was visiting Tulane. Well, the Inn exceeded our expectations - and that is hard to do! The continental breakfast was plentiful with many delicious and fresh options - coffee cake, scones, muffins, fruit, etc. The inn was a beautiful and historic home that is elegantly furnished yet welcoming. Quick trolley ride to the French Quarter and to Tulane area. Restaurants are within minutes away and Joe And Bebe are great hosts who are eager and knowledgeable at suggesting restaurants, and places to see. Whether my daughter attends Tulane or not...we will be back. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: We enjoyed Room #2 on the first floor.

Exceeding expectations is our goal and we are so happy that this guest felt that we had reached that mark. We predict that her daughter will be back for school and we look forward to having them here again. Thanks so much for the positive feedback.

Avenue Inn is on St. Charles Avenue in the Garden District. It is convenient to both universities, Tulane and Loyola, as well as the French Quarter. The inn keepers, Joe and Bebe, are sensitive to all your needs and make sure you have whatever you need to make your stay comfortable. Every morning breakfast is served in the dining room and not only is the food very good but it enables the guests to meet each other and discuss their plans for the day. Snacks are available all day long. The street car stops less than a block away from the Inn. There is no fitness center at the Inn but you can join many other joggers on the street car tracks, which is a wonderfull place to run.

Room Tip: We have stayed here four times and our favorite room is the front room which you enter from the fron...

These four time returning guests are so gracious and kind with their words and although they have choice of many places to stay, their repeat business is the highest compliment. Looking forward to another visit soon.
