Creole Gardens: New Orleans Bed & Breakfast

Our lush Banana Courtyard.

Our lush Banana Courtyard.

Welcome to our blog! A little bit about us-- Creole Gardens is a New Orleans Bed & Breakfast, located in the historic Lower Garden District. Our building itself is a historic landmark as well, originally constructed in the late 19th century as a residence for Benjamin Palmer and his family. We have 24 charming and eclectic rooms bursting with New Orleans character, as well as two suites across the street from the main property that are ideal for long-term stays! Our long list of amenities--or Lagniappe as we like to call them here!--includes free parking, a delicious, southern-style breakfast every morning, free WiFi, gated security, flat-screen TVs with 100+ channels, and the most pet friendly Pet Policy in the whole city!

So, that's Creole Gardens in a nutshell. But what are we going to be talking about on our blog, you say? Well, I’m so glad you asked! We’ll be keeping you up to date on any public events we may be hosting at our awesome event space, adjacent to the hotel, The Roadhouse! You can read more about the space here, and you can check out our public event calendar here! We’ll be hosting live music, DJs, serving drinks and New Orleans soul food on the regular.

 
The Roadhouse is filled to the brim with Caribbean ambiance, like this rusty Pelican named Pete.

We also rent out The Roadhouse for private events, including weddings! We will be using the blog to talk about the New Orleans wedding industry at large, and to help paint a picture of our beautiful space for any and all couples looking for a New Orleans venue for their special day! We’ll have some upcoming blog content on weddings at The Roadhouse, as well, so stay tuned!

Let us not forget, this is a New Orleans Bed & Breakfast! So much to do! We’ll be highlighting the best restaurants, or new restaurants, or just restaurants we’re currently digging! We’ll share our favorite coffee shops within walking distance of the hotel, maybe even further if the artisanal brew warrants the walk! Planning a NOLA shopping spree? We’ll let you know the can’t-miss shopping spots. Want to know what events around the city are coming up? We’ve got you covered. And of course, we’ll highlight where you can find some of the most beautiful, historic, views in the city-- starting with the Lower Garden District’s very own Coliseum Square Park. The park is just blocks from Creole Gardens, and perfect for pets as well! That being said, dogs seem to enjoy the park more than cats…

This is just a little sneak peek into what we’ll be sharing! Thank you for reading, and we hope you’ll enjoy our upcoming content as well! In the meantime, follow us on Facebook and Instagram for pictures of dogs, food, plants, happy guests, sights from our neighborhood, and much more.
