“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2011

My wife and I spend 3 days in NoLa at Crescent City Guest House. To be honest, considering what we paid, this place is a great value. Matt and Lynn were attentive, but stayed out of our way and afforded us alot of privacy. We didn't have breakfast prepared for us, but the selection of cereals, bagels, etc and coffee was very satisfactory. The place is about a 10 minute walk to the beats and sounds of Bourbon Street and the French Quarter, and is a few blocks from Frenchman Street, where it's apparently a local Bourbon Street, so to say. We were able to find parking in front of the house with no problem and there is a hot tub that we didn't take advantage of. We will recommend this place to friends and family.

Cons: The internet connection was wireless, but spotty. I'm not sure if this was just a bad few days for there system or not.

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cresent City Guest House, the room was more than comfortable and being able to get our own breakfast or make snacks whenever we wanted was a real plus. the location is perfect to enjoy all New Orleans has to offer!

I just want to say that this is, far and away, the best guest house my girlfriend and I have ever stayed in. Even if we hadn't ended up enjoying New Orleans as much as we did, we would come back just to stay here again--which we will as soon as we're able.
In short: our room (suite 3) was spacious, comfortable and impeccably clean; our host (Matt) was wonderfully polite and helpful; the tidy common room was well stocked with food and travel guides, and the garden beautiful and relaxing; and every amenity we could imagine seemed somehow to be taken care of in advance.
The house is also in a GREAT area. It's only about five minutes' walk from the French Quarter if/when you want to go there, but the neighborhood immediately surrounding it (the Marigny) is much less touristy and has a lot of really cool spots to check out. The "action" in New Orleans is notorious, but it gets old quickly; and it was great to have somewhere this pleasant, relaxing and accessible as a home base.
Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We'll definitely be going back.

We've been to New Orleans many times. Big hotels, small hotels, B & B's.

This is a GREAT VALUE for the $$.

Clean and convenient and safe.

Within walking dastance to riverfront, FQ, restaurants

The other reviews cover it well, so I'll just point out a few things. We stayed three nights.

Matt and Lynn are very nice. You may not see them very much, since breakfast is DIY. You may see the other guests, though, depending on whether you or they hang out in the common room. Our dog was befriended by all the guests, and we were given dog treats upon arrival, which really made us feel welcome in bringing her.

The area right around the house is okay. We always felt safe to walk, but at night we always took the same road to and from the French Quarter or Frenchman St. I wouldn't just wander around and I would take a cab after midnight.

The room pictures I found online don't do the rooms justice (they looked old-fashioned online, but were cozy in person). Our room was really nice and comfortable. The bathroom was good, too. We only took showers, not baths, so I can't say whether the tub was good -- It's not my favorite thing to take a shower in a clawfoot tub.

Overall, though, you can't beat this place for value near the French Quarter.

What an experience, the rooms decorated and clean, the attention to your needs was top priority and the very accommodating common room. Matt and Lynn Could not ask for more quality people. What gracious hosts.

What a relaxing experience and a few blocks away the party kayos that is New Orleans. Best of both relaxing and partying

We have been staying here for years and it's better every time. Matt and Lynn are excellent hosts, friendly and there when you need them, but they also allow you your privacy. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and the garden gets more beautiful every year. The only time we stay elsewhere is when CCGH is booked. The place is extremely fun if you can get friends together and book all four rooms. It's like renting a vacation home with maid service. As long as they'll have us, CCGH is where we'll stay.
