The Creole Gardens Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast comprises two historic nineteenth century mansions and a two story servants quarters, surrounding a lovely, quiet banana courtyard. We are tucked on Prytania Street between Thalia and Melpomene Streets, one short block off of the hustle and bustle of St. Charles Avenue and its streetcars (which can take you to the French Quarter in less than ten minutes). We are also only a few blocks away from Magazine Street and its hip coffee and antique shops. A few blocks away are the Garden District, Lafayette Cemetery and the world inhabited by author Anne Rice's characters. We have 26 individually decorated rooms. Seven rooms are located in the Bordello Annex -- decorated in over-the-top Storyville style. These rooms boast thirteen foot ceilings, mantle pieces, and hardwood flooring. Four rooms are located in the main mansion. These rooms are huge and rich with original details. The remaining rooms are in the main mansion's original servant's quarters, overlooking the banana courtyard. We finished our complete renovation in 2004. Besides new wiring and plumbing, our rooms are equipped with new custom made king and queen sized beds, state of the art telephone system, cable TV, ceiling fans and free high speed 10/100 internet connection. The feel of our place is quiet comfort, splendor, fun and tradition -- all rolled into one. Many of our guests come back year after year. We hope you will too.
Quaint outside...Inside rooms immaculate. Family friendly staff.
Needs some paint on the outside.
The hot breakfast was delicious! The room was cozy and comfortable. The staff was great! Everyone made you feel at home. The B&B is also pet friendly. The king size bed was comfy and sheets were soft. We will stay there again!
Nothing negative to say.
Friendly staff. Quick walk to St. Charles Street Trolley.
The room was a bit small. Not much space for suitcases, etc.
Creole Garden has an authentic, homey feel, consequence of the staff's genuine desire to serve guests, and the dated charm of the facility itself. There's a pleasant garden courtyard, Friday evening 'speakeasy' with 'Queen Ann' spinning 45's next door.
I was attending a conference at Convention Center. You need to BC ready to walk a few blocks, or accept a $6 cab fare... Just an unavoidable consequence of location.
Comfortable, convenient location close to streetcar, well-maintained, great breakfast
The history of the property was very interesting, and the furniture, art and food were great. it was interesting to find out that we slept slept in the former slaves' quarters.
It could stand a little bit of upkeep. The door in our room was very hard to open and close.
Great Location,very friendly and helpful staff. Room was beautiful.
The breakfast was included and delicious. The décor was unique. Very close to the trolley line, restaurants, and sightseeing.
My room door was extremely hard to open but minor detail I guess.
No complaints! Free parking, good breakfast, nice room. I'll stay there again.
