First off, we found the staff to be extremely nice and helpful during our stay. We had the upstairs room with balcony, facing the street. The first thing I could not help but notice was how dirty and worn the carpet was on the stairs, hall and in the room. In the few days we were there, it was obvious...

Patrick, Thank you for taking the time to write. We'll definitely take a look at these issues. Not normal complaints for us but a second and very similar one to the last. Thank you for sharing your observations.

Let me start off by saying I wanted to love this place. Beautiful architecture, Frenchmen Street which is a fun area, and booked a king with balcony. However, when we walked into the lobby, we were really disappointed with how unkempt the place was. I am not talking about the structure, as it is a very beautiful old New Orleans...

We stayed here for a second time during the Satchmo Festival and really had a nice time. The location can't be beat, right in the heart of so much great music! The pool was a treat in the evening, our room was cool and comfy, and the staff were super friendly. We'll be back!

My husband and I were looking for a nice place to stay, not spend so much, and stay somewhere near the quarter. We found this on Expedia and were not disappointed. Staff was friendly, and the location is right across from all the famous jazz venues and music venues on Frenchmen St. which is right by the Flea Market! This...

Generally a nice, charming place to stay, but I have one major issue -- the pool is heated in the summer!!!! Now, yes, a heated pool is a very nice thing on a cool or chilly spring or autumn day, but in a scorching and humid New Orleans summer you want a COLD pool!!!!

The hotel looks very different from the pictures. The rooms are tiny. I went for my anniversary and was embarrassed when I opened the door and showed my wife the room. It wasn't clean and there was a door connecting the room next door that was as thin as a closet door. We had to transfer rooms because the light...

Hello and thank you for writing. We apologize that your stay was below satisfactory as we strive to offer excellent accommodations in New Orleans's premier historic district. In renovating rooms for modern comfort we do as much as we can to preserve and maintain our building's historic integrity, and for this reason our petite queen rooms are petite. We greatly...

I wanted to love this place so much because of the location, character and cute courtyard/pool but the three live roaches we saw in our bathroom ruined it for me. Not to mention the smell of the rooms, uncomfortable beds and tiny bathroom. The parking was terrible and the hot tub was cold.

If you're looking for a hotel that looks like you would think New Orleans should look like then this is the place for you. The staff is fabulous. However we went during the second week of August and it was very very hot. Loved the hotel loved the pool the staff was fabulous.

hopessjh306, August is a rough month. That's why rooms run a little less expensive. One doesn't spend much time outside though usually. We couldn't be happier that you had a good experience with the hotel. Thank you writing to say so. Do come again when the weather might be more to your liking. chuc

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
