A group of us were in town for a tennis tournament and wanted to stay in a place together. There are a number of choices/prices for rooms. We chose to stay in the mansion rooms, while our friends opted for the smaller rooms. A hot breakfast is served every morning and there is a cute courtyard if you choose to eat outdoors or enjoy your afternoon cocktail outside. The rooms in the mansion are very large and clean. The staff is very attentive, and friendly. The beds were very comfortable and I always appreciate the option to have a king-size bed. We also enjoyed the front porch.

Room Tip: Many of the rooms require a climb up stairs. We had no problem, but if you have heavy bags or diffi...

The team at Creole Gardens epitomizes what New Orleans knows best, southern hospitality! Kudos to both Bryan and Chris for the way they invited me into their B&B. Kris was a joy and never short on stories about the city or recommendations for a great time. The Bordello Mansion provided cozy, Victorian styled rooms with modern amenities (cable, wi-fi) in a secluded, relaxing setting. The Garden District location of the property is ideal, as it sits one block off St. Charles Ave, which is always bustling with activity from local restaurants and taverns. The property is within easy walking distance to downtown New Orleans, and the surrounding area is pleasant. I recommend Creole Gardens to anyone looking to stay in a place with a bit of original character. Go Cats!

We stayed in the "bordello annex". Smaller room, but still comfortable. The mansion rooms are larger and more elegant, if that's important to you. The staff was always friendly and helpful. We felt very much "at home". If you drive in, this location is great. We could walk around the Garden District and were just 2 blocks from the trolly to the Quarter. We could also jump in the car and hit some superb neighborhood restaurants. Really felt like we were living local in N.O. for 4 days. They're not fancy here. The place has a ton of funky, Nawlins charm and that's exactly what we wanted. We will stay here again.

I was skeptical of finding a place to stay in New Orleans during the Final Four, especially since I didn't know I was going until Wednesday before the Saturday Semi's. Thought I would surely have to stay miles away, until B&B was mentioned and we stumbled onto the Creole Gardens. We were not in the mansion part, but we weren't looking for a mansion, just a clean place to rest after games and sightseeing. The people there were the epitome of Southern hospitality. I am satisfied that those who paid twice as much in nearby hotels did not get the attention to detail and personal help offered by those at Creole Gardens. Example: After giving us a walking route to the Super Dome, they reviewed it and decided we were being sent down a questionable street - they called our cell and re-routed us a better way. What hotel clerk w/hundreds of guests would've done that - and breakfast was included and was a full southern breakfast, not just a continental 'wanna be' breakfast. There were other examples of their unique hospitality as well and I would definitely consider Creole Gardens again. We parked right outside on Friday night and were in comfortable walking distance to WW II memorial, Super Dome, Street Car to French Quarter - couldn't have been happier - to not have to move the car again until Tuesday a.m.

We loved having you stay with us for Final Four and thank you for your kind comments! We love it when people stumble upon us and discover how much fun it can be to stay at a smaller unique inn like the Creole Gardens! Come back soon! We're having French Quarter Fest this weekend and Jazzfest in 2 weeks and there's always something fun going on in our town and our place! See you soon again, we hope!

We stayed at Creole Gardens Bed and Breakfast for the Final Four 2012. We did not book our trip until the week before and were so grateful to find a place to stay in the city. Our room was in the Bordello Mansion. It was very quiet and we had a beautiful view of the courtyard. We walked in the area and found some nice bars/restaurants just down the street. Staying here gave us a different view of the city, less commercialized, more locals. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely consider staying here again when we visit New Orleans.

We are so happy you got to try our little inn and enjoyed your time with us! The room you were in was one of the few with a full size bed....we hope next time to be able to offer you one of our larger rooms with a queen or king bed. It was a pleasure having you both and are so happy to have you as part of the every growing Creole Gardens extended family! See you again soon, we all hope!
