We absolutely loved our room! So spacious, with everything we could want. The common area was comfortable, the fridge and cupboards were well stocked. Matt and Lynn were great, giving us some suggestions on routes to take to get in and out of the neighborhood, and were available to meet our needs. The guest house was within easy walking distance...

The guest book and online comments bulge with compliments for this Guest House, and with reason. My friend Malcolm and I stayed there for 10 nights in early October. Matt and Lynn were welcoming and helpful hosts. Our rooms had character but also everything one could need. The service was unobtrusive and efficient. The Aunt Pearl notices told guests all... More

We stayed at the Crescent City Guest House for 5 nights. It is honestly the best place to stay in NOLA. It is within easy walling distance to Frenchman Street and the night life but far enough away to get a good sleep. The garden is a nice place to relax in the evening before heading out and the air...

I'm at the b&b now. We have been staying here for several years now and Ive resisted writing a review only because I don't like it when it gets full on a bite when we want to stay here. I will say this: if you like staying in the quiet Marigny with every comforting detail taken care of and a... More

The Crescent City Guest House has a comfortable cottage like feel to it. The rooms were absolutely spotless and well decorated. Each room was unique and all had thoughtful extras which made the rooms special. For instance, Lynn and Mattt put out St. Patrick's Day beads for us to wear. It is those thoughtful touches, that made it a memorable... More

We came back to this guest house almost two years after our first stay, and it was just as nice, quiet and comfortable as last time. Heard music on nearby Frenchman Street every night, and this time had a chance to explore the charming Marigny neighborhood. There's continental breakfast food provided, but if you want a delicious cooked brunch, Cake... More

October of this year was our third visit all the way from Australia to the fabulous New Orleans, and both times we resided in lovely but relatively sterile hotels, so we thought it was time to stay somewhere that had a little more New Orleans "culture" to it. Crescent City Guest House certainly didn't disappoint. Situated just outside the French... More

My husband and I just got back from a week in New Orleans at the Crescent City Guest House and what a lovely stay we had! First, let me say that the hosts Matt & Lynn are so welcoming, resourceful and the house is stocked as if you were at home! The house is in a quiet neighborhood a few... More

We spent 5 days in NOLA recently and stayed in this very pleasant Guest House. Located very close to the Frenchman street, the key corner if you are interested in music (Jazz of course). However, it was not within the area affected by too much noise of traffic. A gentle 3 blocks from the action was a very good distance... More

A nice place to stay in a scenic neighbourhood. Clean and well equipped. Breakfast is 24/7 and good to start the day or when you need a bite. A lot of interesting places to visit on walking distance like French Market (5min), Bourbonstr (10-15min), etc. Owners are hospitable and act as perfect tourism information "guide" by sharing their knowledge of...

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.
