I wish we had stayed longer! Our schedule was packed, so we didn't get to indulge in the wine and cheese socials or enjoy the pool and hot tub. I recommend this B&B for the following reasons: - As noted, the wine and cheese receptions. This is just classy, and we're sad to have missed out. - Breakfast is self-serve,...

If you expect a Marriott or a Sheraton for less than $100 a room, forget it. This is a fantastic B&B with outdoor pool, breakfast, 5pm wine and cheese. All free. It's not in the French Quarter, thank goodness. Who'd want to try to sleep in the middle of that glorious madness? But it is only four blocks from Frenchmen...

My brother and I visited New Orleans just for fun, and the Lion's Inn was a great part of it. Our 2-bed room (Room C) was spacious, comfortable, and filled with character. The breakfast every morning was fine and the internet worked great. We didn't get a chance to swim in the pool or enjoy the hot tub due to...

First and most importantly, the B&B is not 5 blocks from the French Quarter. Perhaps the outer edge but you will be walking 13 blocks each way to the action. Secondly, one of the owners was very condescending when I inquired about taking a bus to the airport instead of a taxi. I explained that I am a budget traveler....

We welcomed this guest to our B&B with her dog, that was allowed to stay free, in her single $50.00 per night economy room. However, this is one of the few times that the "needs" of the guest outstripped our ability to satisfy them. We did have to step in when her constant talk of her dog and of herself...

We have tried many hotels and B/Bs over the years in N.O. but always come back to Lions Inn. Owner, Mr. McLamb, and his excellent staff, simply cannot improve on the warm and exceptional services, accommodations, beauty and Old World European style of rooms and grounds. Back yard is our favorite oasis, with hot tub, cocktails and pool. And easy...

We were put in a condo on Dauphine st and were stuck without internet or phone or any sympathy.it wouldnt have been so bad if Ed hadnt denied that there was a problem. I thought the customer was always right. Watch out for the 40 dollar Cleaning fee attached.

I stayed in the Honeymoon cottage which is two doors down from the Lions Inn. The Lions Inn manages this property and I must say, does a fabulous job! The house was clean, well stocked, and I feel very sure if a problem popped up they would be there to take care of it. Fortunately, everything was awesome! The folks...

This has been the 3rd year we have come to the Lion's Inn B&B for the Thanksgiving Holiday, and once again it did not disappoint! Everything looks fresh and well maintained and we were welcomed all around. The Lion's Inn is the type of place where you don't just come and stay the night and have your breakfast, you become...

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.
