Used tripadviser reviews to find this hotel and so glad we did,all the excellent reviews are all fully justified.From the moment we arrived we were made to feel fully at home by Frank and his help and advise during our stay was priceless.Don,t worry about the location.its a 20 min walk to the French Quarter if you are half fit or a 10 dollar taxi ride,10 mins the other way there are some cracking little bars if you want a break from the Quarter.The pool and the hot tube are a god send after a long day sightseeing plus a 1,25 beer from the vending machine,perfect.Breakast is help yourself in a small kitchen and lasts all day and all night at no extra cost.Rooms are comfortable with most having direct access to the pool and gardens.To conclude if we ever visit New Orleans again we will stay at the greenhouse and would have no problems recommending this hotel to anyone,a special thank you to Frank the most helpful,frindly and knowledgeable innkeeper we have ever meet in 30 years of traveling kev and Karen visited 3 nights may 2014

We needed a place to stay while down for our daughter's graduation from Tulane, although we booked early there were not a lot of options. It is in an area that was still recovering from Katrina the last time through, but it has made a lot of progress since. The Inn itself is wonderful. Frank and Jesse are great hosts. The room was comfortable and well kept. We had a ground floor room only a few feet from the pool and hottub which are in a court yard that looks like it's in the middle of the tropics. The area is clothing optional which was new for us, but a very good experience, especially while swimming through the flower petals that had fallen into the pool. Quite an exotic experience.

It's within walking distance of the art galleries on Julia Street.

The only down side was that with a first floor room we were awakened by other people leaving early Sunday morning as they walked and rolled their luggage down the wooden floor in the hallway. The Inn has signs by the pool asking that noise be kept to a minimum between 10 p.m. and 10 a.m. The only change I would make is that they post a similar sign in that hallway! Otherwise, it was a great place to stay while in New Orleans.

I booked a room way back in January for my girlfriend and I to stay in May. The staff was very professional and accomodating with our check-in request. Upon arrival our minds were blown by the mesh of tropical oasis and southern charm, right in the heart of one of the world's most beautiful and exciting cities. The innkeepers were pleasant, especially Frank- go with his reccomendations, the man knows his city. The impressive tropical pools and garden provided the perfect back drop as I proposed to my lady. Needless to say she is now my Fiancé!! Thank you Green House Inn, we will be back for years to come.

Hi,

We stayed at the Green House Inn for 4 nights during our visit to Tulane U. We would have extended our stay for another 3 nights, but they were sold out for Jazzfest. This is a wonderful inn, very laid back and accomodating. We stayed in the Orchid Room -- we were 2 adults and a teenager. It had two bathrooms and was big enough that we weren't on top of each other. It was very easy to stay like this. Much nicer than staying in a hotel/motel. The pool area was fabulous and the hot tub was welcomed after walking around all day and we loved the visiting parrot that would spy on us (actually we were spying on him!). The gardens/flowers are just lovely. An oasis convenient to everything New Orleans. Walking to Magazine Street shops and the French Quarter is no big deal from here. Frank is a wonderful host and knows everything about anything you could possibly want to do in New Orleans. We hiked the bayou, went to restaurants, took tours. Everything that Frank and Jesse recommended was spot on. It is convenient by street car and there is gated parking at the Inn. We had a rental car because we are spoiled, but wouldn't have needed it at this location. Stay with Jesse and Frank --- you can't go wrong with this pick.

Hello CherylS,

Thank you for sharing your glowing review! It was our pleasure to have your family as guests! We are glad that y'all enjoyed your stay and our suggestions were helpful. April is always a popular month to visit New Orleans because of the milder weather and many festivals. We would love to have y'all stay with us again!

We had a great 4 night stay early April and would thoroughly recommend this B&B to anyone. As Frank and Jesse said, we could safely walk to/from the French quarter - 20 mins straight walk to canal St - or take the nearby tram. The room was excellent, and the house had a great old world charm. The pool area is a secluded oasis, beautifully set up and lit with greenish subdued lighting. It was great to come back from the busy French quarter to the quiet of the pool, and a couple of drinks before retiring. We loved the laid back vibes from Frank and Jesse, which set the tone of the whole place - Other than the bars/restaurants/music etc don't miss the World War II Museum just a 5 minute walk away.

The Greenhouse reminded us a lot of our favorite place in Key West, Marrero's Guest Mansion. Frank the innkeeper that checked us in was extremely helpful, one of the best we have ever had. He provided us with restaurant recommendations that were spot on, and great directions for how to navigate the trolley system. It is a bit of a walk to the French quarter, but completely doable. Bourbon Street is about 20 blocks or just over a mile walk. The rooms were nice with very comfortable beds, but the outdoor clothing optional pool was fantastic, however more clothed than not for our taste. There was another young newly nudist couple that was giving clothing optional a second go after staying at Marrero’s, but that was about it. The pool landscaping really made you feel like you were in the tropics. The pool is not heated but the Jacuzzi was more than hot enough. The pool is slightly shaded, but there are two sundecks to catch a tan, one good for the morning, one good for the afternoon. If you are a real sun worshiper you might want to get the Bird of Paradise room with its own sun deck. We had the Bougainvillea room which opened directly onto the pool which was a nice feature. The only issue is that it is right next to the lobby/dining room so it is not as private as some of the rooms. Breakfast is mostly a do your own carb fest with a waffle Iron if you want something hot. They did have hard boiled eggs which was nice for some protein. Considering the trend of lower carbs and gluten free, they may want to come up with a few more options than cereal, croissants, or muffins. Anything you do in an Inn or B&B is going to be tough considering you are in a City that is so known for its food. However, there are a few restaurant options close by, Seed for vegan friendly and The Irish House for gluten free. Our only other recommendation is that they add a few more beer or even whine options to the soda machine near the pool. Yet again, there is a great wine shop about 8 blocks away, Keife & Co that has a great selection of wine with a small selection of meat and cheese. We were more than happy with our stay, and will be making it our new home base in New Orleans.

Room Tip: The rooms that open directly to the pool are really convenient, if you are spending the day at the p...

Dear Beach Natural,

We thank you for providing such a thorough account of your time with us for prospective guests! It delights us to hear that the atmosphere we provided reminded you of tropical Key West, as this was the vision we modeled the inn after. We want our guests to have the pool and garden as a retreat in the middle of the city. Thank you for the suggestion concerning our breakfast options; we will look into providing more health conscious options for our guests.

Sincerely,
The Staff of the Green House Inn
