We received a warm and friendly welcome from Joe and Bebe during our three night holiday in New Orleans. Despite the fact that it poured with rain during continuous thunderstorms, our stay was warm and cozy, thanks to their hospitality. The Avenue Inn is charming: the house was built in 1891 and our Innkeepers have tastefully decorated it with beautiful antiques.
A continental breakfast is served each morning in the dining room, though when the weather is fair, one could sit on the pleasant verandah or the pretty patio.

Our bathroom was not large, but we had every convenience and the pleasure of excellent water pressure, with lots of hot water. We had a large, quiet, queen room. Our bed was very comfortable, with exceptionally clean linen.

The location of the Avenue Inn could not be more convenient. As other reviewers have noted, the street car runs right in front. There are many great restaurants nearby including Commander's Palace, Superior Seafood, and Jacques-Imo's. Free off-street parking is available to guests, which was much appreciated. Prospective guests should note that there is no elevator--just in case negotiating stairs is an issue. Perhaps in that case, one might wish to reserve a room on the ground floor.

Thank you for your hospitality, Joe and Bebe!

When you stay in a B&B you are staying is someone's home and it is the innkeeper who really makes is a great experience or not. Joe and Bebe are the best. They are very friendly and professional. I appreciated the small touches, snacks, bottle water, ice were provided at no charge and were really appreciated. Breakfast was light and just what you need to get up and go. They were great with recomendations on things to do and places to eat. If you are looking for a B&B in NOLA this is the one.

Awesome stay at the Avenue Inn! Joe and Bebe are wonderful hosts, starting with the warmest welcome and orientation, then recommendations on places to eat and see, all given our personal time constraints. Our room was amazing! Delightfully charming Victorian style, the most comfortable bed ever, lovely (environmentally friendly) bathroom amenities, instantly hot water with great water pressure in the shower, clean and comfortable throughout. Breakfast was plentiful, and the generous selection of snacks and bottled water available around the clock was a much appreciated bonus. The location couldn't be better - a beautiful neighborhood for walking, right on the streetcar line, great location. Loved being in this old, beautiful mansion, and Joe and Bebe truly treated us as guests in their home. I'll definitely be returning to NO, and this is the only place I'd consider staying!

If you have not been to New Orleans, this is the place you want to stay because Joe knows everything you need to know about this city. The B&B is totally charming with high ceilings and but the bathrooms are right up to date. Also the location is right on the Streetcar line and they have free parking. What is not to like?

As two discerning New York City natives, the Avenue B&B was one of the highlights of our recent trip to NOLA. After a few days on a business trip closer to the French Quarter, coming uptown to this quintessentially charming, Victorian-adorned B&B was a breath of fresh air.

The moment we arrived, Joe and BeBe welcomed us and immediately made us feel like family. Completely knowledgable about the Uptown / Garden District, as well as Quarter and Marigny, they provided personalized tips about restaurants and attractions. And not the, "I hear it's good" kind of crap you get from most hotel concierges. They personally know many of the local restaurant owners and are fixtures in the neighborhood. They promptly made reservations on our behalf, and helped us rejigger our schedules to fit in one of their local favorites. They pointed us toward fun dive bars, as well as fine dining spots.

Joe upgraded our room to a lovely one bedroom with a scenic view of St. Charles St. Our bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was equipped with everything you'd expect in a good hotel. They advised us on an awesome running route in order to see the Audobon Park. Breakfast was simple, continental variety (try the special cinnamon raisin bread) that's what you really want if you'll be loading up on beignets, fried oysters and Sazeracs later, anyway!

Located a few miles outside of the French Quarter, the Avenue is on the very same street as the charming NOLA streetcar, and is easily accessible via cabs or bikes. The prices were also quite reasonable, and I was pleased that there was no three-night minimum stay (something required by many of the other nearby B&Bs).

My only regret re: our stay at the Avenue B&B is that it wasn't longer. Joe and BeBe are definitely making it on my holiday card mailing list, and the Avenue B&B should make it on your "must-visit" list if you're staying in Crescent City!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms require a few flights of stairs but have a great view of St. Charles St.
