“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!

We loved staying at Creole Gardens. It was a very convenient location to the streetcar. The staff was very accomodating. We highly recommend it to anyone visiting New Orleans.

This charming B&B is located on the border of the French Quarter and the Garden District, right off the St. Charles street car line--just a short trolley ride into the French Quarter and an even shorter ride into the heart of the Garden District. There are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance (including an excellent BBQ joint and one of Emeril's restaurants), if you're too hungry or lazy to brave the public transit system.

We stayed in a 'bordello' room, complete with lace curtains around the bed (and complimentary Mardi Gras beads on the pillows). It was a bit chilly at times (not unexpected in January), but the space heater eventually made things more comfortable, and the bed was plenty warm. The bathroom was huge, and while there was no tub, there was great water pressure in the shower (and plenty of hot water to shake off those winter chills).

Breakfast--bacon, eggs, and grits/banana pancakes, depending on the day--was excellent, and eating at the B&B saved us that much more money--and it was already significantly cheaper than the hotels we were considering. All in all, it was a very cost-effective and convenient way to see the Big Easy, and we had a great time.

Room Tip: The Willie K 'bordello' room is lovely (though chilly in the winter)--but the windows open r...

We absolutely loved Creole Gardens! Great location, beautiful rooms, friendly staff, and pet-friendly, too. You can walk one block to St Charles and enjoy the great restaurants and bars -- or take the streetcar to downtown or the French Quarter. There's a beautiful park a few blocks away to walk your dog (or yourself). Magazine St has amazing one-of-a-kind shops, cafes and restaurants. Creole Gardens is close to everything, but far enough away from the hullabaloo in the French Quarter to make you feel like you are living in New Orleans for a few days, rather than just being a tourist. We couldn't ask for more.
