Stayed here this year as part of my first trip to New Orleans for Jazz Fest and was not disappointed a bit! Lynn and Matt have great place and treat their guests very well. The 24/7 breakfast is perfect after staggering in from a night on the town. The Marigny neighborhood in spring was fantastic as well. From the time... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the CCGH. Matt was unavailable that weekend, but Lynn was extremely friendly and accommodating. We stayed in Room 1 and the bathroom was bigger than any hotel we've ever stayed in! Plus, it had nice water pressure :) The bedroom was a nice size too and came with a mini fridge, a desk, and...

Set apart from the noise and congestion of the French Quarter but only two blocks from Frenchman's Street, this B&B is situated perfectly. After a last minute decision to get away from the cold of New York, we were able to catch a room at this splendid B&B. Although the Breakfast was not like the usual B&B experience, there was... More

This guest house is run with great generosity of spirit. More towels and toiletries than you could possibly need and an enormous range of juices, breads, cereals etc for breakfast. When we arrived for Mardi Gras our bed was festooned with Mardi Gras beads and and the definitive Mardi Gras guide was provided for every room. The bedroom and common... More

As a denizen of the Faubourg Marigny, I have stayed at several of the B&Bs there. The Crescent City is right at the top of comfort, quietude and value. The rooms are not only beautifully decorated, but have many extra appointments and amenities. The location is nearly ideal for tourists wanting to be near, but not too close, to Frenchmen... More

This place is cozy and located in the artsy neighborhood of Fauborg-Marigny. It's just 2 blocks away from Frenchman St (which has a lot of good jazz clubs) and a short distance from the French Market and Bourbon St. The owners, Matt and Lynn, are awesome. The fridge was always stocked (help yourself) and I was even asked if I... More

This is a great place to stay if you want something off the beaten track but convenient to all the clubs on Frenchmen Street, and an easy walk to the French Quarter. Matt and Lynn are very hospitable and have put a lot of TLC into the house, as well as the verdant and colorful garden with its pretty water... More

The Marigny is a great neighborhood from which to get to know old New Orleans (NOLA is my hometown) and what could be better than a traditional shotgun house? This is a perfect place to stay for those looking for comfortable independence. The hosts are friendly and helpful but mostly off working leaving you with a well-stocked kitchen and the... More

This B&B was absolutely perfect. Great hosts, extremely large rooms, totally affordable and perfect location! My boyfriend and I wanted a laissez faire approach to our vacation in New Orleans and the comfort of Matt and Lynns B&B couldn't have gotten any better... Would never even consider looking at other places to stay. STAY HERE! Only four rooms so don't... More
