Five Continents Inn
Ranked #68 of 142 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 November 2010

We just got back from New Orleans (our first time) and the 5 Continents, it was awesome. Jess is a wonderful host - the rooms were clean, the food was fantastic and Jess really goes above and beyond to ensure your stay in New Orleans is special by providing advice and tips on the city.

The location is close to the French Quarter - we walked it every day and the cabs to and from are reasonable too.

I will stay here again next time I go to New Orleans and I have already recommended it to everyone I talk to!!!

Thanks Jess for the hospitality!!

This lovely house is positioned on a quiet road within easy reach of the river, the French Quarter, tourist attractions and good restaurants. Breakfast is outstanding and the owner is so knowledgable and helpful in advising on everything to make your stay in New Orleans perfect for you. Being able to leave our car safely behind gates for free as we didn't need to use it, was an added bonus. We had a most enjoyable two day stay.

This is a beautiful place and a value. Breakfasts were excellent, and the proprietor, Jess, was very helpful and knowledgable. The location is good but if you like to walk or have a car, but it is not central. Highly recommended.

If you are looking for an incredible B&B experience in New Orleans, stay at the Five Continents. You will be treated to exceptional service by the owner, Jess. He is truly the best Innkeeper we have ever met -- gracious and generous with his guests. He made us feel welcome in his beautiful home yet gave us the privacy we wanted on our visit to New Orleans. His breakfasts are fabulous -- and served at the time we selected. Jess also gave us great advice (make sure you try Cafe Degas!) and made our short weekend visit to New Orleans a highlight of our year. We will be back to stay at Five Continents again!

Everything I have to say has already been said by previous guests, but I'll reiterate the property is beautiful and conveniently situated, Jess is a fantastic host, the rooms comfortable and spacious, the food spectacular, the price extremely reasonable (quoted prices include all taxes and fees and refrigerator stocked with free non-alcoholic beverages). The off-street secure parking is a bonus.

Our stay couldn't have been better.

We chose to stay at the 5 Continents again instead of the conference hotel, and I'm so glad we did. It was a very quick trip to the business district every morning, and a great way to start the day. The breakfasts were amazing as before, and everything was still spic and span. This is our "go to" place for NOLA. The house is beautiful and comfortable, Jess is a wonderful host, the location is perfect, and the breakfasts are amazing, all for a reasonable price. Another wonderful stay, and not our last!

My wife and I stayed at 5 Continents for three nights when we first visited New Orleans this late July. The weather was stifling hot, not something we're used to, but Jess made us feel perfectly welcome with his excellent advice and local knowledge. That, and the free water and complimentary soft drinks in the handy fridge made the heat much less of a problem than it could have been. Our room - the North American Cottage - was both elegantly and practically furnished. We were particularly impressed by the bathroom, with a spacious and excellent shower.

Most of our activities during our stay were inspired by Jess's suggestions; we saw more of the city than we ever would have relying on our own wits alone. We whole-heartedly reccommend this B & B for anyone going to New Orleans, be it their first or 50th time!
