For two 70 year old travelers this B&B was an amazing find, reasonably priced (excellent value for the $), well run, clean and quiet (there was occasional construction nearby; and there is a train that comes through fairly frequently whistling. If you are a really light sleeper you might be awakened; we were not). The owner, Ed, is very unobtrusive...

This was a great placer for our first time exploring New Orleans. We stayed in room number 1, which looks out on the pool and garden, and we were quite comfortable. It's not a huge room, but how much room do you need? The location was great -- only five or six blocks from Frenchmen Street and maybe eight blocks...

This place has it all: convenient location to French Quarter and Frenchmen Street, variety of room options, a very kind and hospitable host, and a tropical paradise in the backyard for relaxing. Plus there are a variety of breakfast options to choose from before you go on your adventure, with daily wine and cheese hour. We stayed in Room C...

This place was fantastic and I would definitely stay here again. Our room was beautiful and the garden/pool area was stunning. We drove and never had any problems with street parking. We did a lot of walking too with no problems. Just a warning that the Sun Room is close to the outdoor table for breakfast. We only had an...

My husband and I stayed here for a family wedding and found the accommodations comfortable and hospitable for a very reasonable price. We regretted we didn't have more time to sit outside in the peaceful oasis, and we really appreciated their willingness to adjust to some weird scheduling things on our part. I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here 1st of October. Couldn't be any better, the location, the property, the staff and the pool. Everything is beyond what you would expect in a B & B. They have a well stocked kitchen with whatever you want for breakfast as well as wine and cheese in the evening. I would recommend this place to anyone who is...

Amazing experience!!!!! Doug the manager was extremely friendly and accommodating! The room was very clean, quiet, and lovely. The backyard was a mini paradise of a fish pond, jacuzzi, and a perfectly heated pool. The free bike rental saved my boyfriend and I a lot of money as the rates around the area in the bike shops were ~$20/day. The...

Great B&B, clean rooms, nice breakfast. The gem of this place is the beautiful pool and grounds. Palm trees, flowers, fountain, a cute little waterfall, all make it seem miles away from the quarter, but you are only blocks.

I stayed at the Lion's Inn on my first visit to New Orleans a few weeks ago, and it's definitely a part of the trip I remember fondly. It was also my first B&B experience - one I entered into somewhat warily. I always imagined B&B's to be a bit creepy - sharing breakfast with a bunch of strangers, old...

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.
