Welcome to the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast in New Orleans, Louisiana. Surrounded by 200-year old oaks on the renowned Saint Charles Avenue Streetcar line, this 1891 Thomas Sully mansion exudes turn-of-the-century charm to match its historic location. From the center of Uptown, guests can ride the streetcar to quickly reach the French Quarter, Central Business District, Morial Convention Center, Tulane and Loyola Universities, Riverwalk shopping, Lafayette Cemetery, the World War II Museum, Audubon Zoo, The Aquarium of the Americas, and the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

Your Innkeepers, Joe and Bebe, would love to have you visit their mansion home where life was more simple and relaxing in bygone years. Their personalized service will connect you with hard-to-get-into restaurants, arts and cultural events, museums, sightseeing, antique shops, and tours. Enjoy the excitement of Mardi Gras just steps from your room. All 18 Mardi Gras parades march down Saint Charles Avenue and pass just a few yards from the front door of the Inn!

We stood at the Avenue Inn during a trip to New Orleans for our anniversary. The proprietors, Bebe and Joe, helped make our visit to the city all that we dreamed it would be. Located in the less hectic Garden District, the home is gorgeous both inside and out. Beautifully furnished, it is comfortable and super clean - the only place I've ever been where I've felt as at ease as if staying with family or close friends. Bebe and Joe are awesome hosts! Their knowledge of New Orleans is unparalleled. They can answer questions, make recommendations and arrangements, or just chat with you about all that the city has to offer, both the typical and the offbeat. There is plenty to do and see within walking distance of the inn. With a streetcar stop right in front of the house, you can get anywhere else in the city with ease - it's just a short ride to the French Quarter, museums, and shopping. Transit passes cost only $3/day, are purchased on the streetcar, and are good for all streetcars and buses that operate 24 hours a day. It gets no more convenient than that! The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We slept peacefully each night in our air-conditioned room (individual thermostats!) with no noise intruding from outside (old houses are built well!). Evening walks are beautiful and relaxing, allowing you to see an abundance of fine architecture in the area. Or, you can sit on the front porch or patio and just watch the world go by. Breakfast each morning on the patio is a great way to start the day. The coffee is great and always fresh. The pastries are the best I've had, this side of Paris (France, not Texas). Words cannot describe them. New Orleans food is amazing! Everywhere we ate was fantastic and there are great places to dine right near the inn. We drove to New Orleans and there is private, off-street parking behind the house. No worries about where to put your car or whether it will be secure. The complementary bottled water and snacks were also most appreciated at the end of a long day. Thank you, Bebe and Joe, for sharing your home with us! We look forward to our next trip to New Orleans and certainly know where we'll be staying!

This is a wonderful B&B with incredible service from Joe & Bebe and their lovely staff. Rooms are beautiful and relaxing with lovely artwork and antiques. Free parking at the back adds to the 'chill-out factor' - you can leave the driving and take advantage of the streetcar which stops outside and drops you downtown for $1.25 (or $3.00 for a day ticket for the whole network). Or you can stay local and eat 5 minute's walk away at 'Superior Seafood' - a heavenly gastronomic experience. Continental breakfast here at 'Avenue Inn B&B' is abundant and tasty with loads of fresh options and an 'all day snack tower' to add to the excellent service. Take in the trips too - City Tour, Natchez Steamboat and the wonderful 'Cajun Experience' swamp tour. This was our first trip to America - we travelled from Detroit via Chicago and The Great River Road - an experience of a lifetime and our 5 day stay in New Orleans concluded our trip fabulously. We would love to visit again and if we do, it will be another stay at Avenue Inn for us!

Absolutely amazing!!! Everything and so much more than expected! The Inn and property were very charming and inviting. My wife and I stayed in room one, which opens to the beautiful front porch. The room was elegant and impressive, yet very comfortable! We had everything we needed to make for a wonderful stay. It was like a home away from home…but better! We actually had our wedding ceremony there. The innkeepers (Joe and BB) were exceptional and always made sure we had all that we needed. They even made recommendations of restaurants and local attractions that made for a much more pleasurable stay. Each day, our free breakfast consisted of an assortment of the best local bagels, pastries, breads, coffee cakes, fruits, homemade jams and jellies, fresh juice and coffee, and many other things. Nedra, the housekeeper, was delightful to converse with in the morning. She made sure we always had what we needed at breakfast and that our room was clean and stocked with anything we needed. There was always a huge selection of snacks and such available to us at anytime for no cost. After touring the entire area, we learned that this was the ideal location to stay in New Orleans. It is very clean, safe, and in walking distance to many wonderful restaurants and shoppes. There is also a street car stop directly across from the Inn, which makes for easy transportation to more distant destinations of the city. Don't worry about noise or distractions from within your room though. It is extremely quiet and private. Overall, it was a great experience! Whether we decide to have a renewal of vows, or simply escape for the weekend, we hope to stay at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast when we return to New Orleans! -Jonathan and Bianca Hannah

There is nothing like Avenue Inn, just like there is nothing like New Orleans. For our family, we can't do one without the other. Our most recent visit during JazzFest in early May reminded us why we don't even bother looking for another place to stay. Where else can you have a charming room, on an historic street, with guests who are strangers who within the friendly atmosphere start talking like longtime friends. Proprietors like Bibi and Joe make sure every need is taken care of and have an answer to any question. We've been coming to New Orleans since 2006 when our youngest first attended Tulane -- he never left New Orleans. How lucky are we that Avenue Inn has become our home-away-from-home when we visit. If there ever was a 5-star inn, Avenue Inn is it.

Avenue Inn Bed & Breakfast is the perfect place to stay in New Orleans. Quite, cozy, convenient, clean, comfortable in a lovely neighborhood that's steeped in history. Joe, Bebe, and Nedra are all very knowledgeable about the city and had many recommendations for restaurants and tours. We could tell that Joe put a lot of thought into the things he told us about the place including but not limited to the room and front door keys, how to get in and out successfully, breakfast time and that you are encouraged to enjoy it in the garden. Right out the front door availability of taxi's, trolley, bus line and Joe knows the cost to ride all of these. Public transportation is a real plus for this location because we were able to get to The French Quarter, Loyola University, the riverfront and Canal Street lines all at the curb (Joe gave us a handy map to keep). Even the drug stores are a short few blocks away for purchase of all those things you can't take on the plane anymore. We highly recommend this beautiful home as the best place to sleep in New Orleans.

This is a must stay Bed and Breakfast! I absolutely loved my stay at Avenue Inn B & B. The owners Joe & Bebe were very hospitable, knowledgeable, & very informative. Every place we asked them about whether it was places to see or restaurants, they knew where to go. They were wonderful and the room was so spacious & very well decorated! I would definitely recommend to everyone!

Five star experience at this lovely bed and breakfast in New Orleans. Wanted a special place to stay for our 45th anniversary and feel that we made a great choice. Our elegantly decorated room had a king bed, fireplace, dining area and private bath. It was nice to just park our car and ride the bus and trolley to the French Quarter. The bus stopped just across the street and we found it easy to get around. We would definitely stay again. Thank You Joe & Bebe

Joe and Bebe are truly great people to stay with. The house is in a great location. There are great restaurants nearby. There is abundant parking. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. They run a great place to stay and they do whatever they can to help you. This was a business and pleasure trip. They helped with both. We got reservations to the most popular restaurants. I could not get reservations at the Commanders Palace. One call from Joe and we got in immediately! They told us of the "must see" places and "must do" things. I even got good counsel on the business conditions and where New Orleans is going. Why would I stay anywhere else? We will be back! Mark and Jean
