    We stayed here over Christmas 2010, we wanted to stay somewhere more homey and personal which we got at Park View.  The rooms were very nice, the breakfasts were good, and the location is wonderful next to the Audubon park.  
    The house construction is also very nice, considering the house was almost full we did not hear our neighbors and the house was surprisingly quiet.
    In the evenings they provide wine and cookies which is a nice touch.  The front desk staff were very helpful in making dinner reservations for us on short notice.  The new owners are very nice as well.

    We are repeat customers and couldn't imagine a better, more welcoming, comfortable place to stay. We have a little one, and room 7 is the place for us. Having the park and the ZOO right off the side porch is perfect for the little one and the kid in us. And the streetcar stop convenience is perfect. All the staff treats us like family. Don't bother looking at other b&b's.

    I'm surprised to find myself writing the first review of Park View Guest House, a charming bed and breakfast overlooking Audubon Park.

    I stayed in Room 19, which is probably the best room for a single or double occupancy. Located on the third floor in the front of the house, Room 19 includes a huge private balcony overlooking the streetcars on St. Charles, Audubon Park, and the lovely live oak trees. Two sets of original French doors open onto the balcony. The decor was refined, with a clean white bed and European details like a sitting area and antique wardrobe. The bathroom is clean and has a large clawfoot bathtub. Being near Tulane/Loyola and the Garden District, Park View Guest House truly feels like a New Orleans home.

    The staff was friendly and generous with information about local sights and events. They have complimentary freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies, popcorn, and wine all day and set out a brandy decanter every evening for a night cap. The breakfast is good and includes hot waffles, fresh fruit, biscuits and gravy, the typical baked goods and cereals, as well as coffee and tea. Again, the sense that you're in a home and not a hotel is a feature here.

    Of all the sights and experiences in my first trip to the Big Easy, I can say that staying at the Guest House was the most memorable. The hospitality is what makes me want to return there.

    The first time I ever came to New Orleans- in order to find living accommodations, and quick!- I stayed at the Park View Guest House.
    I can't believe that I haven't thought to write a shining new review of it since then!

    This charming place overlooks Audubon Park and sits on the corner very regally. It is just beautiful, inside and out. As you walk in you are welcomed into a lovely sitting area with locally written books all about New Orleans. The smell of chocolate chip cookies baking will draw you back to the dining room. Each table has a beautiful flower and is elegantly set. Breakfast in the morning includes almost anything you could ever want- including different types of juices, different types of coffees, a waffle machine, fresh fruit, fresh breads, etc. Every afternoon one of Park View's workers makes freshly baked cookies and there is wine, tea, etc. laid out for an afternoon snack.

    The rooms were gorgeous! Our bed was huge and comfortable. The decorating was impeccable- my own Grammy would've approved. I felt so lucky to have stayed here for my first time to the city!

    What really made a difference, to me, was the spirit of the staff and the owners. We stopped the staff every day to talk about where to look for an apartment, if they had heard of anyone looking to rent a place, and for suggestions for restaurants. The owner of the Park View actually called a few of her own personal contacts, gave me her personal number, and took time out of her schedule every day to check-in and see how we are doing. That is customer service. They really take care of you here. I would suggest that anyone visiting the Crescent City stay here and enjoy themselves.

    Let the warm and welcoming attitude of the staff and the luxurious accommodations help you enjoy your stay in New Orleans.

    Home away from home when parents are visiting cherubs at Tulane or Loyola. The location is anchored just off Audubon Park and has a convenient stop for the St Charles Streetcar.

    Life simply doesn't get much better.
