    Talk about luck! Our first visit to New Orleans, and we found the best bargain in town. The Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast has it all: location, beauty, comfort, excellent professional standards, outstanding service, all for an affordable price. We came to New Orleans because our granddaughter had been accepted to Tulane University and needed to visit the school before making a decision. Finding the Avenue Inn on the Tulane University website, I chose it because it was close to the school and reasonably priced. What a lovely surprise! Bebe and Joe welcome you into their elegant home with genuine Southern hospitality and tell you that their first rule is that you have a great time in New Orleans. Well, they certainly succeeded with us. Each day as we explored New Orleans, we were delighted to return to the lovely tranquility of the Avenue Inn and the architectural beauty of the Garden District, remarking over and over how thankful we were not to be staying at an impersonal hotel in the French Quarter. Getting around was easy with the streetcar right outside the front door, and Joe and Bebe were so helpful with suggestions of things to see and do, places to eat. You don’t need a guidebook at the Avenue Inn! Thanks to them, we had a wide variety of experiences during our four-day visit. We hope that our granddaughter does choose Tulane so that we can return often, and it will be to the Avenue Inn.
