“This Fit Fun crew LOVED it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I plan trips 3-4 times a year around Southeast for buddies and hikers/bikers who I meet in my work with Covenant Health and PBS (missy kane fit fun show)_ We love biking on silver comet/ cheif Ladiga trails in Ga and Alabama and saw that the Amtrak goes right out of that area. We drove to Cedartown Ga then biked to Anniston (40 miles) then stayed over at Victoria Inn (also nice place) and took Amtrak next day to New Orleans. Looked at some of the nice chains etc but stumbled on The Green House Inn (maybe thru Trip advisor?) So my friend said give the a call. Jesse owner very nice, helpful and we booked 8 rooms there a few weeks ago. IT was such a COOL place. Rooms pretty and beds soo comfy! The pool/gardens area with hot tub is just AMAZING and we loved the hot tub. Very relaxed feel there and Jesse told us perfect spots for dinner, walking, shopping etc Nice breakfast self serve (waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereal, fruit, yogurt etc) But the staff really goes out of their way to make your stay memorable. We didn't want to leave !!

Room Tip: Everything was great. Didn't have a fitness center but we enjoyed walking and working out by th...

We stayed at the Green House Inn for 5 nights. The Inn was fantastic! Great location on Magazine Street; easy to get to the Warehouse District and French Quarter. The Inn itself was charming and the host warm and attentive. Fantastic bed, great livingroom / dining room for breakfast and a small pool and hot tub (which we did not get to use, but will next time we visit)! Highly recommended.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I had three days alone in NOLA and needed somewhere quiet but with possibilities of socializing. The Green House turned out to be an excellent choice.

My room was big, clean and original, with windows towards the garden/pool area (wich is bigger than it appears on the pictures). It could have been noisy with other guests in the pool, but the whole place just oozed with tranquility and noise from the pool area was only a problem one of the nights (and not a big problem).

The host was relaxed and friendly, and generous with his time and advice.

Breakfast was... uh... American. Wich is not a good thing in the eyes of a Norwegian. Too much sugar and fat. But it was the best breakfast I got during my visit to the USA. And the fact that the guests of The Green House Inn are allowed to help themselves in the kitchen was really convenient.

Great place, that I wish I could have stayed at longer!

An Excellent location.with secure parking. 5-6 minutes by car to the French Quarter , 2 blocks from the highway but you would never know it. lovely accommodations. the bed was very comfortable, the hot tub and pool an absolute delight after a long day out in New Orleans. Highly recommend it.

This is a small hotel with a pool and hot tub (clothing optional) in an old house. Our room was at the back of the property, in the old servants' quarters, and it was very clean, comfortable and quiet. We had a king-size bed and our own bathroom with nice thick towels. Breakfast is a do-it-yourself affair with a selection of fruit, cereals, yogurt and a waffle iron. Snacks are available at any hour of the day or night. Frank called to find out the details of our arrival and followed up with information on travel from the airport, which was helpful. All the staff members we met were very friendly and welcoming. We are regular visitors to New Orleans and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front might be noisy because of the bar on Magazine Street.

Just got back from a nice trip to NOLA with my wife. We really enjoyed the hotel but both agreed a 4 for the rating.
The location is in an easy to get to location and very close to bus routes to and from downtown.
The only real knock on the place is the fact that it is an old building and could use a few basic up grades. One issue was that it was a real struggle to get anything more than luke warm water in the shower. Again, it is an old house so that makes some sense, but if you are like my wife and I a hot shower is a must.
That being said, the bed was super comfortable, the pool was very relaxing. I'd have no problem recommending this place to people if they were going to NOLA.

This was the last place that my wife and I stayed on a 24-night cross-country drive, and it was easily the best. The price was right, the check-in process was easy, the innkeepers were friendly and very accommodating, the property was nice and well-maintained, the parking was secure, the pool and hot tub were awesome, and the bed was comfy. The inn is located in a transitional area, but at no point did we feel unsafe. We walked to and from the French Quarter multiple times during our stay and never did we feel threatened in any way.

All around A+. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Awesome place for couples, but probably not very convenient for families with small children.
