Avenue Garden Hotel New Orleans Reviews

A true diamond in the rough. Oct 30, 2010
In my book, cleanliness and service trumps most other categories in a hotel. This diamond in the rough tops both of those categories in my book. It's certainly not the fanciest hotel you'll very stay in, and if you're in to upscale chic, this isn't the place for you. But if you like good clean accomidations with a staff that is ready and willing to provide you with unmatched service, don't look any further. I chose to visit New Orleans on a last minute whim at a time when, unknown to me, when there were three major things happening at the same time in the Big Easy on that particular weekend. Honestly, I chose the Avenue Garden Hotel for only one reason...it was the only place evenly remotely close to where I wanted to be that had accomodations available for the time I wanted to visit...lucky for me. How can I say that a hotel costing $149 per night is an average price to pay? Answer: When the only other available choices are two to five times higher, there really is no other choice.

The trolly stop is right at the front door, there are many good local places to eat within walking distance, cab rides for three of us to almost anywhere in the city were $10 to $15, the staff had an immediate answer to any question we had, I could go on and on. The Avenue Garden is an old, family owned, boutique hotel near the edge of the Garden District, bordering the Warehouse District, then the French Quarter. It's decor is date and a little rough, but we prefer quaint and nostalgic. It's kind of like stepping back in time a few decades.

We're one day in to a three day stay and I could go on and on, but I'll stop for now. If my opinion changes, I'll update this review, but frankly, I don't think that will happen. I chose the Avenue Garden out of necessity this time, it will be my choice for all my future trips to his lovely city.

Ok, there is one small negative, secure off street parking is $20 per day, but if you've stayed in major cities around the country, you'll agree that's pretty much a bargain as well.
