My husband & I recently spent the weekend at Ashton's BNB for our anniversary & it was fabulous. I cant remember the last time I slept so well & every morning breakfast was just phenomenal. Great hosts & wonderful hospitality. Looking forward to a return trip someday soon
Was met with champagne and a warm smile. The house was breath taking. I remember walking in and be overwhelmed with how elegant the house was. Beautifully decorated, it had personality and class. Michelle (the owner) gave us a run down of everything which included breakfast, local recommendations, and even safety precautions for the quarter. Friendly and knowledgeable. Bob (the owner) made us the most fantastic shrimp and grits I have ever had. It was amazing. They were kind, professional, and fun people. Their house is exactly what you want in a bed and breakfast. Fancy yet comfortable. Stylish yet affordable. Professional yet laid back. Will definitely be returning.
I'm not sure we could have found a more ideally located B&B from which to base our NOLA adventure. The Green House Inn was everything we could hope for. The proprietors treasure this oasis and it shows. We're already considering a return visit, once again basing our stay from the GHI.
What a find! One of the many unexpected blessings on our recent trip. And with a reduced rate when we decided to stay an extra night. Hosts were helpful, friendly, and stayed on their own except when needed. Good location, near French Quarter and trolley line. Spend some time in the garden--a special place with it's flowers and fountains. Highly recommended!
Ashton's is a beautiful inn with very comfortable rooms and WONDERFUL breakfasts. Patrick's cooking and restaurant recommendations went a long way to making making this a truly memorable trip. If we're ever in New Orleans again, we will definitely stay here again.
This is a wonderful little B&B. The neighborhood is amazing. There is a food co-op across the street and a food court like place a block away that has awesome food. The neighborhood itself is very quiet, although walking distance to the French Quarter. Plenty of free parking nearby. There is a nice little garden to sit in as well as quiet places to sit indoors. And it is good value for the money. We will definitely be back.
We were so glad to get rooms here for our last visit. Everything was perfect, from the room (Palm) to the hospitality of Nancy and the new inn keeper, to the breakfast. Nancy found our family member another B&B room for a night due to our late reservation, and that was much appreciated as no rooms were available in Faubourg/Marigny without her help. Such a convenient location, far enough from the commotion of the quarter, but near enough to walk or take a bus or cab. The new St. Roch food building on St. Claude is just a block away and offers a dozen or more food vendors, serving everything from hamburgers (why?) to gumbo..
While the Banana Courtyard is a bit eclectic, the location is excellent, and the room we had was well kept, comfortable and clean. We didn't have breakfast while we were there mostly because of the hours we kept. What made this an excellent choice was the welcoming feeling we had from the minute we walked in, and the care the staff had for our comfort and enjoyment. Miss Mady and Miss Paula took a personal interest in our stay, and any question or request was immediately taken care of. We bought the flowers, champagne and strawberries package and they were delivered as requested and they do the strawberries themselves - and yummy! I would definitely go back on another visit!
This was the most amazing place to stay! The room (Pelican) was private, lovely, spacious, fun, and just so beautifully cozy. The whole inn is lovingly decorated in oddities and wonders from New Orleans and beyond. Honestly, though, the real icing on the cake of this inn are the two amazing innkeepers. Breakfast is the perfect way to start the day as they tell where all the delicacies came from around the city and offer as many recommendations for ANY possible request you could imagine in the wondrous city of New Orleans. I 100% can't wait to bring my mom and anyone else here to continue my exploration of this amazing town. Thank you so so so so so much for such an adventurous and delightful stay. Until the next time!
So glad we found this place. It's been fully updated and remodeled inside, has a great location convenient both to the French Quarter and to museums and the Garden District. Hosts are very helpful with insider/local information and provide a fresh, eclectic breakfast selection each morning. Highly recommended.
My husband and I were looking for a place to stay to be able to walk to Frenchman St. We found this Inn and it was the best trip to New Orleans we have ever had. The hosts are very friendly, knowledgeable and know when to chat and when to let folks get out the door to experience New Orleans! We will be back for sure!
Perfectly located, spacious well appointed rooms, and you couldn't ask for a better host. Mathew and Melanie are excellent company and made our stay at their wonderful establishment a complete delight. Breakfast was always amazing and my advise is that if they suggest you go somewhere or try something, that you do it. They are a fountain of information and so obviously love their wonderful city, as they should. It's a wonderful place to visit and we definitely will be going back.
Loved La Belle Esplanade. We were there for a few days last weekend. Wife and I had the La France Room and my mother was in Les Fleurs on the first floor. We loved the inn. It was so charming and the rooms (2-room suites, actually) were spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. I love the Esplanade Ridge area and Matthew and Melanie were such great hosts. They are so knowledgeable about New Orleans in general and the Esplanade Ridge area in particular. They don't send you to the touristy spots, but rather the hidden gems and the places locals most enjoy. They make you feel very much at home while you're there. Looking forward to going back again.
Our stay at La Belle Esplanade was outstanding. Both Matthew and Melanie extremely helpful as well as fun. We loved our suite with balcony and the happy decor. The breakfast each morning was a highlight. Yumm. Different each day and delicious ,thoughtful and fresh. Best meals we had in New Orleans and by far best breakfasts in the past five weeks of our holiday. Ideal location, perfect for an enjoyable walk to either The French Quarter or gardens. Thankyou Matthew and Melanie.
We loved our recent stay at La Dauphine. Ray and Kim were incredibly gracious hosts and were around several times when we returned from dinner, always willing to chat. The location of La Dauphine is perfect; in a quiet neighborhood but only a short walk to Frenchmen St. or the French Quarter. The room was very clean with fresh towels and soaps. My wife and I agreed that we would absolutely stay here again when we return to New Orleans. Thank you very much Ray and Kim!!! -Mike and Gab.
Matthew and Melonie are exceptional hosts at a very charming B&B in NOLA! They are witty, friendly, and happy to share all their favorite ideas about how to have the best time possible in New Orleans! The buildings are brightly colored, and the rooms filled with antiques...we'll be back!
My daughters and I stayed at the Avenue Inn while we were visiting Tulane. Joe and Bebe could not be more accommodating and welcoming. They made us feel us at home and helped us navigate the city and neighborhood. The house was super special. We will be sure to return. John G - Reading, MA
Great location, near the St. Charles trolley and the CBD. We come for the courtyard and pool area. There is even a huge macaw, Rio,who hangs out on the fence and who likes to interact with guests. Great rooms and service. The soda machine even has local beer. Because you're in New Orleans, you don't need a big breakfast. By the time you get out of bed, its already time for brunch at some fabulous nearby restaurant. Or just grab a muffin or piece of fruit to get by until lunch. Heck, I had leftovers from dinner the night before as my breakfast twice. IMHO, the onsite dining works just fine. Another advantage of Green House is that there are never any kids. Probably because they can't take advantage of the pool area, which is for ages 18 and above. Let's just say the dress code around the pool is very relaxed. I would have rated the property higher, but the website would not let me select the OUTSTANDING button.
Without doubt the best B&B we've stayed in. Anywhere. Well located away from the hustle and bustle, but a pleasant walk into town through a charming area. Jessica, our hostess, was superb: pleasant, helpful and knowledgable, without being obtrusive. Breakfast was different every day and had everything you could wish for. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in New Orleans.
We have stayed at this property two times now and just love it. The home is gorgeous and the location is ideal. We enjoy taking the streetcar around to where ever we want to go and being away from the French Quarter. The location on St. Charles is peaceful and so pretty. We just love it.
Enjoyed staying at Lanaux mansion. Great location near Frenchman & river street car. Well taken care of by Karin and Iris. Only disappointment was intermittent wifi in Weiland Room and the room had no natural light. But courtyard outside lovely quiet place to relax. One comment though, communication before stay was poor.
