My husband and I recently stayed in New Orleans for three nights at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast. Once we decided on New Orleans as our travel destination, I Googled Bed and Breakfasts in the area and found that the Avenue Inn had very high ratings and these positive reviews did not disappoint!
Prior to our vacation, the Innkeepers, Joe and Bebe, sent us numerous emails including restaurant recommendations and suggestions for activities during our brief stay, and the information they provided was tremendously helpful. We booked the Jazzy Honeymoon Package (plus a plantation tour) and crammed these tours into just three days and also ate lunch and dinner at some amazing restaurants, and for our meals we relied very heavily on their recommendations.
The Inn itself is some 150 years old and had a lot of charm and character. Breakfast was served each morning in the home's dining room and the spread was more than enough to get the day started on the right foot. In addition, it was fun to dine with other guests to share ideas for activities and new restaurants. Our room, the Mardi Gras Room, was just off the porch and maintained the same antique quality seen in the dining and living areas of the home. And the Inn is conveniently located just steps from the streetcar, which was our primary mode of transportation while in town.
Based on reading reviews prior to booking our trip, the Avenue Inn was exactly what we expected. Our only two suggestions for improvement would be the spotty wi-fi service from the room and the short window of time for consistent hot water during back-to-back showers each morning. Otherwise, the Inn could not have been better!
