Gentry House
Ranked #66 of 141 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 4, 2006

My daughter and I stayed at Gentry House for Halloween and we loved it! Live like a local at this clean and comfy bed & breakfast. The property is very safe, close to everything but quiet and the owners are friendly and knowledgeable. Unbelieveably delicious croissants delivered to your door every morning and a charming courtyard to relax in. We will definitely stay there again.

My sister and I recently stayed at the Gentry House B&B in New Orleans. It is in a great, gated (secure) location in the french quarter right around the corner from Donna's Bar and Grill and 2 blocks from Bourbon. The owners are pleasant, helpful and well informed and deliver hot croissants to your door every morning!! The refrigerator is stocked with milk, cereal, fruit, coffee and tea and soda. The beds were comfortable and a lot of blankets and pillows.
I would highly recommend the Gentry House. Since I travel with my sister or adult friends it's not always easy to find B&B's that can accomodate "non-couples". Gentry House could accomodate us very well with a unit that held a queen bed and a very comfortable day bed in separate rooms.

All this and the price was fabulous! Give it a try.

Found this little gem of a guest house after reading the review in the Lonely Planet guide. For $89 a night (off season) I got myself a lovely room in a double shotgun cottage which had its own private entrance out into a beautiful quiet courtyard. My 'room' had its own seperate lounge area with couch, TV and a small kitchen (with all the necessary bits and pieces). The complimentary coffee, sugar etc were welcome after a long trip. The bedroom area had a comfortable bed to rival the Sheraton sweet sleepers! and loads of wardrobe space. The furnishings, were comfortable and charming more than modern and expensive, but hey who comes to Nola to sit in their room! Sadie, the owner, asked what time I wanted my breakfast delivered in the mornings and the following morning at 8am I woke up to find fresh hot croissants hanging from a bag outside my front door. The Gentry House has its own private courtyard with some lovely cats and is entered through a huge locked gate (no security worries for a single gal on her own there). The only downside was although the Gentry House is in the French Quarter on St Ann (next to the Creole House I believe) its also very close to N Rampart street and can be a very quiet area at night. A couple of nights I took a taxi back about 5 blocks from Royal/Bourbon because I didn't feel 100% about walking back on my own. On the other hand the Gentry House is only around the corner from Donnas bar and grill which puts on some great live jazz and music nights. On the plus side you get fantastic accomodation at a fantastic price...how she manages this I don't know. Please don't be put off by the fact that the Gentry House is on the outskirts of the F/Q, just be aware of your surroundings and take care, I wouldn't hesitate to go back, even as a single girl. I loved it.
