This was our first visit to New Orleans, so we chose the Green House Inn from information on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The 1840's house has lots of old world charm, and the garden and pool are a delightful oasis. Off street car parking was a bonus, so we were able to leave the car and walk to the St. Charles streetcar for convenient transport into the city. We set out on a New Orleans bus tour for a quick overview, then we could find our own way around and enjoy lots of local food in nearby restaurants. We explored the French Quarter and went for a steamboat ride on the Mississippi, plus we went out of town for a Swamp and Bayou tour, and the Oak Alley Plantation. Our hosts were gracious and hospitable and we loved New Orleans.
