“Perfection In New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

The Green House Inn is the only place we will stay when we go to New Orleans. After years of going to NOLA and staying a various places in 2007 we found the Green House Inn and haven't looked back. We have stayed at the Green House Inn at least once a year and some years twice since 2007. It is beautiful and oh so relaxing, perfectly located, comfortable beds, nice rooms and the pool and garden area make you think you are in Costa Rica. Jesse, the owner and Frank, the Innkeeper go out of their way to ensure their guests have a perfect stay. They are friendly and they really know New Orleans. The secured onsite parking is great and the inn is perfectly located to provide easy access to the arts district, the French Quarter, and the Garden District.

The bed was great but the shower was awful, no water pressure. The other guests were wonderful to talk to in the pool but don't attempt to have a conversation at night because even though you are only speaking in a slightly louder volume in order to be heard over the waterfall you will be called down by the owner. By the way, it was 9:00 on a Saturday night. To us this place was nothing special. They will probably post a rebuttal to this review to make it appear our dissatisfaction is our own fault but I stand by my opinion.

This is a great oasis in the middle of New Orleans. We have stayed on 3 short visits and love the place. Jesse, Frank & Charlie are the perfect hosts. We love the free and secure parking. Since we drive in and are not tourists, we spend most of our time poolside either reading or drinking. Friday afternoons in the summer are usually great with several couples poolside and most taking full advantage of the clothing optional area. Saturday morning starts with good coffee and waffles leading to continued reading or swimming around the pool. Great location on the edge of the Garden District. We usually have such a good time in this area that we don't even get into the Quarter. Highly recommended.

The Green House Inn was a great find. The location was perfect and peaceful. Easy to get to the French quarter and the Garden District. Great whether or not you have a car. (We had one so the convenience of parking in the private lot was great.) The rooms were amazing. The most comfortable bed I have slept on and the most quiet air conditioner. The pool and landscaping behind the hotel was fabulous, like being in a lush tropical paradise. All of the staff - Charles who greeted us upon our arrival, Frank who was there to answer all of our questions in the morning before our adventures and Jesse, the owner, who we met on our last day, were all so welcoming and informative. We enjoyed our continental breakfast of waffles, cereal, fresh fruit and hard boiled eggs on the pool patio each morning. And last but not least the price was very reasonable for this most charming accommodation.

The Green House Inn gives you a true taste of New Orleans.

It is located close to downtown and very close to the business area of Magazine Street.
Close to all the good resturants, but not really walking distance to Bourbon Street, which is a plus for us.
We always took a taxi, and it was never more than $5.00 to anywhere we went.

We stayed in the Bird of Paradise room which was pretty quiet and had it's own little porch.
This was a nice area to work on your tan.

The pool is very nice, but don't expect to get much tan hanging around the pool.
It is very nicely landscaped, and as such well shaded.

Met lots of nice visitors just hanging around talking.

A big bonus is secure, gated, parking.
There is also the Bridge Lounge across the street.
It has the best Mohitos!
A really funky place that is nice and dark.

Only negative is they have all kinds of sweets downstairs, which I raided constantly......

Hello SunandSkiers,

Wow, thank you for your review! We are happy that y'all enjoyed your stay in the Bird of Paradise room (it is one of our most requested rooms). Most guests are pleasantly surprised how easy it is to get around on foot, by streetcar, and by cabs in New Orleans. We would love to have y'all stay with us again!

Again Thank You,

The staff of The Green House Inn

This was our first trip to New Orleans since Katrina, and our first time not staying in the French Quarter. The location of the Green House Inn was a wonderful change, and we don't plan on staying anywhere else in the future. Jesse, Frank and Charles were very gracious hosts and provided lots of suggestions for things to do and places to eat. The downtown areas are very accessible with a good pair of walking shoes, or the street car is just a couple of blocks away. The beautiful garden area of the Inn is like a tropical oasis, and we spent lots of time in the pool and tub. We also enjoyed the daily visits from Steuben and Rio. If you're looking for a beautiful and relaxing place to stay, you will be extremely happy here. The motto of the Inn is stay..........relax..........just be. It fits it to a T! Thanks Jesse, Frank and Charles for everything!

We've stayed at the Green House Inn twice for multiple-night stays and absolutely love it. There isn't another place like it in New Orleans. We've stayed in the Royal Porciana Suite and the Bird of Paradise room and both were great. Jesse, the innkeeper, and Frank, the assistant innkeeper, both go out of their way to make you feel at home. They always greet you with a smile and hello, and offer great recommendations on restaurants, bars, sites, cabs, etc. Jesse even insisted on dropping us off in Quarter on our last day, so we wouldn't have to take a cab.

My favorite attribute of the Green House is the pool/hot tub area. It's relaxing and nestled into a beautiful, tropical setting. There's nothing better than coming in from a day of walking New Orleans, grabbing a drink (grab a mojito from the Bridge Lounge across the street and take it to go), and sliding into the saltwater pool. The pool is clothing optional, and in our two stays it has been about 50/50 on those "optioning." I hope anyone considering the Green House doesn't let that aspect scare them away. Everyone is always respectful and gives others their space.

I can't recommend the Green House highly enough. We won't stay anywhere else in New Orleans.
