Don’t Pass Up Our New Orleans Bed and Breakfast

…Just Minutes from the French Quarter


If you are looking for something different from a hotel experience where all of their rooms are the same, then you should try our New Orleans Garden District bed and breakfast without fear of losing all the contemporary amenities you’ve come to expect. Nestled among the centuries-old oaks on the famed St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line, this 1891 Thomas Sully mansion offers turn-of-the-century charm to match its historic location. Yet, we offer all of the important services and features of your favorite hotel. We are technologically up to date with free Wi-Fi, voice mail, and business center services.

And location? Just perfect! From the heart of the Uptown/Garden District, our guests need only minutes to reach the New Orleans French Quarter, Central Business District, Morial Convention Center, Tulane and Loyola Universities, Riverwalk shopping, St. Louis and Lafayette Cemeteries, the World War II Museum, Audubon Zoo, the Aquarium of the Americas, the Insectarium, and the Louisiana Superdome; all located in New Orleans, LA. Access to these destinations is easy via the streetcar that stops at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast’s front door.

From our New Orleans bed and breakfast, take a casual stroll to antique shopping on Magazine Street, where you also will find specialty boutiques, fine bistros, and lively nightspots. Notable restaurants in our immediate area include Commander’s Palace, Emeril Lagasse’s Delmonico, Upperline, Pascal Manale’s, Lilette, La Petite Grocery, Gautreau’s, Zea’s, Superior Seafood and Oyster Bar, and New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood (located next door to the Inn).

Enjoy the excitement of the New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration just steps from your room when you reserve at this convenient New Orleans lodging venue. All twenty-six Mardi Gras parades roll down St. Charles Avenue during “Carnival,” passing in front of our New Orleans inn! A once-in-a-lifetime thrill or an annual tradition for the entire family.

The Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast New Orleans lodging experience features original high ceilings, hardwood floors, and period furnishings throughout. All of our rooms are unique and have been lovingly decorated by the owners. Our focus is a great night’s rest, quality service, and value. Amenities include private baths, irons, hair dryers, free Wi-Fi, voice mail, and cable TV. A delicious complimentary continental breakfast is offered in the dining room or on the Creole-style veranda (weather permitting) each morning to start your day. You’ll also love our snack tower, which is open 24/7 providing munchies, treats, fresh and preserved fruit, and bottled water. All of this is included in your room rate. Need to park your vehicle? That’s free too!

Your innkeepers invite you to drift back to the splendor of the past during your visit to New Orleans, LA, without sacrificing modern conveniences. Our personalized service will put you in touch with “hard to get into” restaurants, arts and cultural events, museums, sightseeing, antique shops, and tours. We invite you to get away from the standard “hotel” experience and learn what real New Orleans bed and breakfast hospitality is all about. Don’t just visit New Orleans, live it!
