This is the best place to stay in New Orleans. Yes it's noisy, but in the best possible way. My room was clean, comfy, and very cool, the bar is great, the location is perfect, and the staff is helpful and friendly.

Love this place! The rooms are as nice as the photos in their website, with tons of character to boot. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The bar is a great neighborhood place. Couldn't think of anywhere else I'd want to stay in New Orleans.

Perfectly situated about 6 blocks away from the bustling of the French Quarter. The rooms are quirky and fun. As noted in other reviews, you receive 2 drink tokens for each person staying in the room upon arrival. They can only be used on certain drinks. However, the selection is pretty wide. I used both my tokens on Guinness. We... More

I travel to New Orleans at least once a year. This is the first time I've had a chance to stay at the Inn. Since it only has five rooms, it's tricky to find just the right dates. I'm so glad I finally got the chance! Wonderful location, gorgeous space, friendly people.

Stayed for the weekend & this is our new favorite spot. You're a couple of blocks away from Frenchman or Bourbon plus the French Market is a short walk. The bar staff is very friendly with an easy check in/out process. Horn's around the corner is a great place for breakfast/brunch or dinner. The only downfall about the Royal Street... More

This is a really nice New Orleans bar in a traditional French Quarter building. It is away from the “douche bags” on Bourbon Street and towards the nicer area around Frenchmen Street. A great jukebox, friendly bar staff and Abita beers, with plenty of interesting characters hanging out in the outside smoking area (the street).

My buddy and I have been staying in the Mississippi Suite for about 4 days now - the moment we arrived I knew this place was something special. Great rooms, cheap drinks and friendly locals. Treat them with respect and you'll make a new friend or two.

We ate here (did not stay here tho) with 7 family members and they were very accomodating seating us all. The food was very good and the atmosphere was busy, but fun! The waiters were also very attentive and we had great service.

We stayed in the La Sirena suite in the loft space of the R Bar. It is open plan, a gorgeously furnished space with a super comfortable bed. You do have to climb the 3 sets of stairs but that is part of the adventure. Some people may be put off by the shower/bathroom area being part of the open... More

This is by far my favorite place to stay when I visit New Orleans. I'm 38/female and this place is safe. I felt perfectly comfortable staying here by myself the first night. I stayed in the Storyville Suite upstairs. It's at the far end of the house, opposite the bar. I never heard a thing from the bar while inside... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood 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.
