“Funky, warm and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

When I couldn't get a room at the traditional hotel where my conference was held, I looked for the next closest place. While the Creole Gardnes was still a mile away, I enjoyed the morning walks, but don't recommend walking back at night. It is convenient to the St. Charles Streetcar, so I rode that a couple of days. The accommodations in the cottage rooms are aptly described as 'funky'. In addition to a small set of bongo drums, my room had bunk beds and a very small bathroom, but I knew I would only be there to sleep. For the difference in price, it was definitely worth it. It was nice to have a quiet sit down, cooked to order breakfast without the usual hassles of long waits in big hotels with everyone you know sitting in the same dining room. The staff was very friendly and I felt right at home.

Room Tip: No elevator, so limit your luggage to the cottage rooms. Convenient to the streetcar. Good locatio...

Location was great of this b&b. Just southwest of downtown made walking a nice 15 min walk or trolley ride one block away. $1.25 per person on St Charles. Stayed in mansion 2 and was very nice. Clean sheets and towels. Small Frig and small tv. Nice big four post bed with two sitting chairs in front of it. Wife loved the claw foot bathtub for soaking in. Stand up shower was ok, but needed shower head replaced. Breakfast was good and staff was great. Did not go away hungry but breakfast was nothing fancy like at other b&b. House has great history with woodworking not seen now days. I would love to stay back there again.

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend getaway to relax and enjoy the city. I am from New Orleans and know most of the really great quaint and hidden secrets of the city. My dad mentioned this place and we tried it. It was one of the most ecclectic and wonderful places I have ever stayed. Great rooms, awesome staff and a delicioius breakfast fit perfectly with our New Orleans trip. I would reccomend this place to anyone visiting New Orleans....

I stayed here for a work retreat. I loved the atmostphere! Each room has a different theme which makes it a unique experience. The courtyard is beautiful, the breakfast is yummy, and it's in walking distance to different restaurants. I'm really glad I stayed here and highly recommend it for others!
