This hotel is quaint and has charm. The stay was very pleasant, the staff was very nice and gave us a bigger room than I had reserved for. It's in between the Garden District and the French Qtrs and with the streetcar, it's very convenient to get around to both of those places. The streetcar is right in front of...

I had previously stayed at this hotel a number of times when it was under previous ownership, and when I had a long business related trip to New Orleans, I opted to try the hotel under its current ownership. Lydia was a great host and our room was clean, convenient to our business in the convention center. We were three...

When I travel and go on vacations I like to stay in places that are either nicer than my own home or that are equivalent to my own home. Unfortunately the room we stayed in was far worse than any of my own homes. And let me go ahead and say that I have a great appreciation for Victorian style...

This is a great place to stay while in New Orleans. I can't say enough about how friendly and helpful Lydia and Ora were during our stay. It's a pretty hotel with a long, beautiful corridor that runs from the front of the house to the back. The room was clean and cozy. We had a corner room (room 16),...

Thank you Lydia, I felt at home! When I travel, I always try to stay with a local family from the area that I visit. My first stay at the Avenue Garden Hotel was just that, a home atmosphere with southern hospitality! The hotel host, Lydia, showed me to my room which was simple but nicely furnished, reminding me of...

The Avenue Garden Hotel is at a great location in NOLA. Positioned near the intersection of St. Charles and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, and on the St. Charles Street Car Line, the Hotel is easy to find. From this vantage point it is easy to get to all the major attractions in NOLA. There are also plenty restaurants (fast...

From the moment we entered the Avenue Garden Hotel, we were greeted and treated with great care! My sister's sudden death brought us to New Orleans. Lydia, the owner, assisted us in every way she could to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The rooms were nice and clean. The decor is absolutely "New Orleans"! The coffee was made fresh...

By far, worst experience of my trip to New Orleans. I know you get what you pay for and I don't expect a lot from a budget room. However, let me list the ways this place disappointed even me: 15 or so huge, Louisiana-size flies on the wall (probably due to the ill-fitting door), AC that never cooled the room,...

To the reviewer, and others who take the time to read these reviews... First of all, the room that the writer stayed in was one that we use very frequently. It is one of our smaller rooms, however, it's a very nice room. In fact, it has one of the nicer baths in the hotel, as well as a fridge,...

This motel was a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed it greatly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was convenient to Garden District and French Quarter. The motel was very clean and comfortable. Some have shown picures and said the motel was in poor condition. In my opinion, there were few imperfections. The few I saw were...
