Our review is based on a stay in the Toulouse room: A stay at the Gentry house is akin to having a good friend invite you over to stay at their house in the quarter. Like a good friend, they leave orange juice, milk, water, soda, cereal and oatmeal. They make sure you have enough dinnerware and flatware to enjoy... More

My wife and I stayed at the Gentry house November 6-9, 2012. I am not sure of the name of the room we booked, but it was up two flights of stairs off the courtyard. Brian and Charlotte met us at the gate when we arrived and showed us to our suite for the week. Very charming couple and very... More

Well, we just stayed for the voodoo fest weekend. we stayed in the St ann room and it was very nice and clean. It was like if we were staying at home and just enjoyed the feel of it. We were 2 and half blocks from bourbon and within walking distance to Jackson square.. Brian and his wife were the... More

This place is clean, confidently located and offers the best way to start every morning. Don't expect hotel style amenities but do feel like you have come home to stay in mom and dad's guest house all stocked with juice, cereal, milk, soda and other morning delights. They even hand delivered fresh baked croissants for you to indulge in before... More

Me and 5 friends stayed at Gentry House from July 5-9 for the Essence Festival. Most hotels were sold out or too expensive at 300+ a night. Gentry house was $185 a night. The outside is a little questionable but the inside of the suites are okay. Outdated everything but cable tv and furniture was okay. We had the St... More

I recently traveled to New Orleans for my bachelor party with a few of my friends. My first impression of the gentry house from the outside was this place was going to be run down. But I was wrong, the inside was actually quite nice! The A/C worked great especially during those really hot days. We stayed in the St.... More

Our experience at this B&B was very positive. The hosts were very accommodating when our dates kept changing. Lovely hosts, spacious, clean and bright rooms, a wonderful location and reasonably priced. Agreed that the bathroom was a tight fit, the shower's water pressure a little on the weak side and the wireless router connection needed resetting on a regular basis... More

Just back from the long Memorial Day holiday. Though there were one/two 'off' areas, I'd do it all again. PRO: First off, GREAT couple, very helpful and morning croissants were AWESOME (two for each of us, one regular HUGE, and another fruit or chocolate filled). Location was average, 1/2 block off Rampart (eh) and the middle of the French Quarter... More

I recently stayed 4 nights and enjoyed my stay immensely. I usually stay at a favorite hotel but since the hotel increased their rates significantly (maybe because of graduation weekend) I decided to research B&B"s in the French Quarter. I decided to stay at this B&B and it was a pleasurable experience. The Innkeepers (owners) Brian and Charlotte are very... More

Booked this B and B after reading some of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and I must say; its the first time I should not have listened!!!!!! Let me start by saying that during our stay Brian was not here, so we had to deal entirely with Charlotte. Arrived at 4pm and our room was not ready; Messy bed,... More

GentryHouse, Owner at Gentry House, responded to this review

We’re very sorry that the guests’ experience wasn’t what they expected. Other guests have complemented the two of us on Gentry House’s friendly, positive, and helpful service … that’s what we’re accustomed to provide but it didn’t work for them. A few explanations might help put the comments in some perspective. The arrival date saw a complete guest turnover; when... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
