The area is still pretty rough - bad potholes, run down area with too many stores and shops closed. Too many homes in disrepair - still has a long way to go. Too bad, because the proximity to the French Quarter - excellent. But not worth stating there - or spending much time seeing it.

Over 3 years ago also. We stayed at a bed and breakfast for 3 nights then moved to a hotel for the remainder of our 10 day stay. We were with a convention. We walked everywhere from the Bed and Breakfast. Awesome part of New Orleans

I just returned from a 3 day stay at The Lamothe House Hotel. This was one of my most favorite trips and this neighborhood is the best in the city!

This is an interesting suburb, a little way beyond the usual tourist areas. It has a mixture of shabby but interesting architecture, flamboyantly renovated shotgun houses and the gorgeous St Roch cemetery. We wandered round on a Sunday afternoon, but we made sure we were back in the French Quarter before dark.

Our venture into the Faubourg Marigny was great fun. Went to the Spotted Cat, Apple Barrel, and a arts/craft area on a Sunday night. Walked pass several other clubs with great music pouring out.

Great trendy area. Great food and good Music. A fun area and not as noisy as the French Quarter. At night, I would not walk alone.

The Marigny has finally come into its own. There are vacation days that we don't even bother going to the Quarter; great eats and entertainment are just a short stroll away.

Just walk along this street and you will find many clubs to drop into and enjoy the wonderful musicians of New Orleans. Jazz, swing, brass and some great voices like Big Willie and Walter (Wolfman) Washington make this a "don't miss" experience.

I have not been here for some time but what I recall is that I really wanted more time. We did not get here till late in the day after a long flight from California so we were tired. But it deserves another visit and a lot more time. The music is amazing and people are all just walking and... More

My visits to New Orleans had only included one brief walk to this area about a year ago. It was early afternoon and not a lot was going on. This year I visited and got to explore both in the afternoon and late evening. There are restaurants galore and music on every block in the evening. The architecture is beautiful.... More
