“Lots of Local Charm, Great Location, and Southern Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

First of all, on a hot New Orleans day (pretty much every day) you can't beat sitting in the beautiful courtyard under the big banana trees for staying cool - and you can even check your email at the same time! The location was also great - a short bus ride or walk to the French Quarter, but in the charming lower Garden District. The buildings and rooms exude a real local flavor, and perhaps because of that, the other guests we met were an eclectic assortment of artists/musicians, professionals and Europeans. To top it off, Creole Gardens serves a terrific free N’awlins-style breakfast –made-to-order eggs, grits, monkey cake, sausage, cereal, orange juice, coffee. We’d never find that combination of local color and amenities at the Sheraton or a private house

We had trouble finding B&Bs in New Orleans that didn't specifically say "no kids," and Creole Gardens not only allowed our two toddlers, but Chris and all the staff were so welcoming and kind to them. Our room didn't overlook the courtyard, but we were still able to use a baby monitor to have some post-bedtime hangout time to ourselves. I loved the quirky look of the place, and the kids enjoyed exploring the courtyard. Proximity to the streetcar and bus was perfect. Breakfast was probably the only thing we didn't love, but it wasn't a dealbreaker for us. We would definitely stay here again.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Creole Gardens B&B for an entire week. I was lucky enough to stay in Mansion 3... It was a beautiful room with large windows and tall ceilings. The property is loved and taken care of, with the vintage New Orleans feel. Breakfast was yummy and the staff was very southern sweet. The property host was very helpful in pointing out excellent places to visit outside the French quarter tourist beaten path. If your a hotel snob, this might not be the place for you... Go check-in at the Sheraton on Canal St... New Orleans is an old place people, and places are generally small. If you like people, smiling, great food, and adventure you should enjoy your stay at The Creole Gardens B&B!!!

Had a short notice trip to New Orleans and was luck enough to get a room at Creole Gardens. Truly enjoyed the Staff and other guests during our stay. If you are looking for the Ritz, read no further, but if you are looking for comfortable accomodations in a superb location to everything downtown and a cast of characters on staff and in residence then you should really give them a try. These guys are not put on....true New Orleans. We'll be back
