Our 'Run Away' Weekend
We arrived Thursday April 15th at about 6 PM and were shown to a cottage room. The room was spacious and spotless as well as having one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The service from the staff was excellent especially considering they were in the final stages of completing an entire new wing to their accomodations. We were given assistance in finding any place we requested, including maps and explicit directions. Rob was very helpful with any problems we had such as a remote quitting in the middle of the night and towels etc. Andy and Karen were very helpful also. Nicole prepared fantastic "Southern Style" breakfast with sausage, bacon, eggs, and grits as well as pastry for those interested in Continental Style food. Josh, the engineer for the complex was friendly and on our last night provided with the help of Rob, a "crawfish supper" for those of us remaining. The quiet courtyard with its fountain was one of my favorite spots because I was interested more in rest than sightseeing. The inn was close enough to the French Quarter to be there in 20 minutes or so and far enough out to be quiet and restful. All-in-all a wonderful experience we plan to repeat soon.
Love at first sight
Seen this bed and breakfast on the internet and fell in love. When we arrived we were checked in without any pain or lots of unnecessary paperwork. Offered help with our bags and getting settled in the room and breakfast on the spot. Breakfast was out of this world fantastic, like no other continental breakfast we have ever had before so get stale doughnuts and days old coffee out of your mind when you come here because it is nothing of the sort. Friendly atmosphere and very comfortable. I slept better than at my own home. Very close to everything Nawlins has to offer. Courteous staff, clean rooms, beautifully decorated and very quiet. Andy and the guys worked really hard to make sure the remodeling did not bother anyone anymore than necessary. When completed every inch of this place is going to be gorgous. It is a work in progress though but just sit down a few moments and watch take form. Nice place to be able to come home to after a long day of sightseeing, shopping and tours. We not only made friends but became part of the family. If you are looking for a place to feel at home while away from your own then come here.Each rooom has its own charm and decor. You can see that hearts were put into this project. We are already planning our return to New Orleans in a few monthes and we will stay no where else but here.
Good for the price and location but a few things to be aware of...
Stayed at the Creole Gardens this past weekend and have mixed feelings about it. Positive points: the location is fantastic and the price is great and the neighborhood is safe and it's just one block to the streetcar. Not-so-positive points: We called a month in advance and made reservations for a specific room in the house but our reservation got lost and we were assigned to one of their new (not-yet-finished) cottages. Although the room was clean and **beautifully** decorated our stay was not very pleasant because construction happened daily (including the weekend) and the noise was almost unbearable at times.
In all fairness I must say that Karen and Robert were VERY nice during our stay and offered suggestions on places to eat and even located an iron and ironing board for us when we really needed one. This place has LOTS of charm and will be GREAT once it is all finished but if you are sensitive to construction noise, be sure to ask if construction is finished before deciding to stay. On the other hand, if daytime construction doesn't bother you and you're looking for a cool place to stay at a great price, then this is it. One more thing to note -- breakfast was continental and not done very well so if you're expecting a nice breakfast, you might want to keep this in mind. :-) I hope this was a fair review -- I tried to be as honest as possible. Thanks!
Creole Gardens Guesthouse is Fun!!!
On a last minute trip to New Orleans, my friend and I stayed in a cottage room at the Creole Gardens. The room was very nice and had the comfiest bed! The bathroom was huge with lots of big, fluffy towels.
The room had so much character and you can tell that Miss Karen puts her heart and soul into every inch of the living space. The rooms are VERY reasonable and it's just a fun place to stay. The neighborhood is quiet but it's only a block to the streetcar. I just made a reservation to go again with a small group and Ron and Miss Karen worked with me to get the best possible arrangements for us. Thanks guys!
The Creole gardens was a lovely place to stay. No complaints at all.
Room was nice and big, A/C worked fine (thank goodness;) Andy, Ron, Miss Karen, and that other young lad (we can't remember your name, sorry!) were helpful without being nosey, it was great to have ppl to to hang out with and talk to, the noisse from the construction in other parts of the building was not too annoying...it was fun to see old buildings getting revitalized. We had to walk up to the Castle Inn for brekkie, a nice walk through the Garden distirct, the food was good fresh, cold milk, if we ever needed anything, there was no problem finding staff to help us. we did also have a ghostly experience at the Gardens, i think nearly everywhere in NOLA has a least one ghost. We can't wait to come back to New Orleans and see the great folks at Castle Inn/Creole Gardens again!!
Loved the Creole Gardens Guesthouse
My wife and I recently spent out honeymoom in New Orleans and stayed at the Crole Gardens Guesthouse. It was a delight! It is in easy walking distance of the Garden District and a street car ride from the French Quarter. Karen has done a wonderful job of decorating this old bordello. Andy has and is doing some amazing work in restoring this old beauty. Both have lots of stories about the history of this special location, and are terrific hosts.

Blast From the Past
We would like to say that we had a most wonderful time during out stay at the 1415 Creole Gardens Guesthouse. The rooms were absolutely lovely and were furnished with all the ammenities that we could possibly desire. The service was impeccable. The location is in close proximity to all the must-see-attractions. We would highly recommend staying there and are looking forward to future stays there on our upcoming vacatons.
A true New Orleans Experience
If you want a true old world New Orleans experience The Prytania Inn is my vote. Walking into the old southern architectured buildings that make up the hotel Prytania is like walking back in time to the sultry New Orleans that most of us only get to see in movies such as A Streetcar named Desire. It may not have all the creature comforts of most hotels and some might even call a night at Prytania roughing it, but what you do get is the true old world flavor with all the New Orleans steam and color you could want. If you want to be surrounded with luxury and modern comforts then go to the Holiday Inn but if you want to really submerge yourself in the rhythmic atmosphere that can only be found in this city, head to The Prytania Inn.
Not the highest point of my stay
I travelled to N.O. on business, but being on a tight budget and wanting to save some cash for sightseeing, i found this place on the web. Big mistake. The pictures on their site probably show the nicer rooms in the house, but they have this shack built out back which is where the other rooms are. Cramped, stuffy and hastily cleaned, the place was definately a dump. The quality of service was pitiful, with a lady banging on the doors each morning, demanding (!) to know whether you wanted clean towels or not. I was lucky enough to find a vacant room in a B&B run by a sweet old lady, and left as soon as possible. Dont try and save a buck by going to this place. You'll regret it.

... of icing sugar on top of them and a coffee and ate outside as we would have been waiting ages for a table. These are easily the best donuts I have ever had... The coffee, not so much but hey, it's America and they probably thought it tasted good! We found a place for a "proper" breakfast and I ordered eggs - something that I am missing way too much. I showed Cass the river, we did some food shopping for the train and then headed back to the hostel ready to leave on our first Amtrak. ...
Austin to New Orleans was another big mile driving day, but the drive was definitely worth it. We were staying just outside the French Quarter which is the old part of the city where all the music and partying is. Within minutes of checking into our room we could hear the distant sound of a marching brass band getting closer as a dancing wedding party quickstepped ...
... the driver could not fit another single soul on board, he allowed a dozen or more on. It was standing room only, and very cramped. So, it's good if you can position yourself (sitting or standing) next to someone who has had a bath, because it can be a VERY long ride back to the French Quarter.
That evening, I met up with Andy and his conference people for a historical walking tour around the French Quarter. We learned so much about New ...
We slept till 10am… couldn’t believe it!! We went in search of the number 5 bus to take us to the river side of the French Quarter but the road it was supposed to go on was closed for roadworks! After a bit of research and a lot of luck, we found it going in the opposite direction. The wonderfully helpful driver said jump on, she was going to the endpoint a few blocks down the road ...
... just what is going on so I could check on what game was playing as well as other things like where to go to see the Katrina devastation and how to get there. The smartphone is truly a very useful gadget. The rest of the we checked out some places we have seen like St Louis Cathedral and around town as well as picking up souvenirs. We enjoyed super at Bubba Gump's which was fun. We took some time at PJ's Coffee house in the French Quarter just resting and headed back ...
