“Perfect location and wonderful hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

As this was our first visit to New Orleans, the location of this B&B was perfect. Just a 10-15 minute walk to the bars of Bourbon St and a couple of streets away from Frenchman St too. As you are a bit further away from the bars, it's quite quiet here except for a bit of street traffic in the morning, so it was perfect for us.
Although the location is perfect, it is the hospitality that makes La Maison Marigny incomparable! John is a very welcoming and helpful host and provides you with a map of the town and helpful hints about where to eat/drink/go. We were greeted with warm cookies and a cold drink on arrival which was very welcome after a long flight from the UK. Breakfast is a real highlight at La Maison Marigny too - John cooks a different one every morning - including Nutella french toast, dirty rice and eggs, and white choc/raspberry pancakes - all of which tasted AMAZING and set us up perfectly for a day's exploring in New Orleans. Lots of coffee and juice and interesting chats at breakfast - a lovely way to start the day.
This is a really great base for exploring the city and its nightlife too and really is a home-from-home as you can use the internet/phone and help yourself to cold drinks and snacks whenever you like.
We had the Balcony Queen room at the front which was lovely - spacious and homely and great to have a balcony too.
Recommended for new visitors to New Orleans or returning travellers! 10/10. I want to go back now!

As first timers to New Orleans, we were a bit concerned that staying on Bourbon Street might turn into a frat party. I didn't take long to realize that this B&B is perfect. A quiet enclave, steps to Frenchman's street and the Quarter. This place shows off the best of New Orleans!

We had a great weekend at La Maison Marigny. My boyfriend and I stayed here 2 nights. We drove from Florida and arrived on a Saturday afternoon. The house is easy to find in a quite neighborhood. John was so accommodating and helpful from making the reservation, to the day of arrival, during our stay, etc. The house is in the perfect location to walk everywhere-straight up Bourbon, over to Frenchmen Street, down to the river. Our room was the Courtyard Queen which was lovely. Although the house gets warm upstairs, we opened the windows and the fresh air on the beautiful March morning made it perfect. John made Sunday morning breakfast as guests awoke and breakfast was blueberry pancakes, fruit salad, and breakfast sausage. The courtyard is a great place to sit with a cup of coffee and listen to the sounds of the morning. Staying at La Maison Marigny made this trip a wonderful weekend. We will definitely stay here when we visit New Orleans again!

My husband and I stayed three nights at La Maison Marigny and were particularly pleased with the location - on a quiet section of Bourbon Street just on the border of the Marigny. We were able to walk into the French Quarter each day and enjoy Frenchman Street just 2 blocks away at night. We thought the house was lovely and enjoyed the Owner's Suite which was honestly more space than we needed! We did find the temperature of the house to be overly chilly, which was probably because of the mugginess outside. We were quite cold in our room and wished there was a way to control the temperature and draft in our room. I suppose in the summer this would not be an issue.
One thing to note is that the owners do not live at the B&B. While John is always accessible by phone I felt that it was a little odd, in such a small B&B, for the guests to be left on their own at night.
I had emailed John previously to ask about lighter breakfast options. His breakfasts are delicious but quite heavy. He very kindly made fruit salad for us which I think other quests appreciated as well. There was some cereal to be had (though John mentioned we should check if it was stale) but only a small amount of milk in the fridge so if I had wanted any John would have had to go out and get more. This is not at all unusual for B&Bs, but I feel generally that lighter breakfast options should be offered to all guests as a regular thing. We are not fussy eaters by any means, and have no dietary restrictions, but we prefer to eat healthier, at least sometimes!
Let me reiterate that we very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this B&B to anyone. The minor points I mention are just to assist other guests with information we would have liked to have prior to our visit.

I would like to thank the guest for their positive review. We agree that our location is the best (!) and that the house is quite nice and are glad to see other share our opinion. In fact, just this week the Canadian daily newspaper Globe and Mail commented that our B&B was "perhaps the perfect B&B." Made us blush! It should be noted that the Owner's Suite is on a thermostat separate from the other rooms so it's relatively easy to adjust temperatures. Of course, during wicked cold snaps like we've had this week it's challenging to regulate the temps of these old Louisiana houses! And we're glad the guests enjoyed breakfast and are glad we could provide healthier options, even though 95% of our guests want to splurge a bit when traveling. While it's difficult for small B&Bs to honor multiple special meal requests, we'll always make sure no one goes hungry!

John was an amazing host! He made 2 New Orleans "first timers" feel very welcome and made certain that we were well informed .Wonderful breakfasts, served with lively conversation from our host, started our day off perfectly. This B&B is comfortable, convenient and attractive, located on the quiet, residential end of Bourbon Street with lovely private homes and friendly neighbors.We'll definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: We had the 2nd floor balcony room and were not disappointed! It was quiet, very comfortable and beau...

If you truely want the best of everything in or near the French Quarter, this is by far the best place to stay. We had a reunion with 3 other couples from High School, therefore , we had the whole B & B to ourselves. Had a blast. John , the Owner, Host and Chef, cold not have been more cordial and helpful ! We had some ideas and suggestions of places to see and do, but John gave us even more, and better insight on the best of everything. We were lucky enough to get the "Owner's Suite", but all of our friends enjoyed their rooms equally as well, they all chose their rooms before we even got their, and were very happy with their choices. Beautifully decorated rooms, we used the suite lounge are as our gathering place, as well as the kitchen /dining area, which was very comfortable. All 8 of had a place to sit during our wonderful and delicious breakfasts each morning. Only 1 1/2 blocks to the Quarter, and the other way to Frenchman St. , where there is more to do than you'll have time for. Once we parked our cars right in front of the B & B, we never used them again till we left ! John made us feel just like we lived there, and we had a ball. We will never consider using any other place to stay when we visit the French Quarter. Thank you John !

Thanks so much for your wonderful review. The guest in question was part of a group that rented the entire B&B and they were a hoot. It was a fun time for all, including me!

We have been to New Orleans five or six times, but this was our first time trying the Maison Marigny. What a find! Our stay here was absolutely a delight from beginning to end. We received a warm welcome from John Ramsay, one of the two owners who made us feel like family. The place is beautifully decorated, warm and inviting. Each morning we went down to a fabulous breakfast prepared by John himself, at which point we would chat about our plans for the day, getting tips on things we might not already know. Our bedroom (one of only four rooms in the Maison) was comfortable and cozy, with a full bathroom and fluffy towels. What more could you want? Oh, it’s also about a two minute walk away from Frenchman Street, with tons of music clubs, restaurants, etc. A perfect location at the end of the night! We would recommend Maison Marigny highly to anyone, if you can book a room – it fills up fast.

Room Tip: We had the balcony room, on the second floor, front of the house facing the street. We had a small b...

Thank you very much for such a lovely review. Thrilled you had a good time at the B&B and liked our rooms, breakfast offerings and overall service. We try very hard to be around when needed and not when guests want and need privacy, particularly in the afternoons when a nice little nap is just what the doctor ordered. (One needs a nap before hitting Frenchmen Street, I think...the music can go until way past my normal bedtime!) Please get out of that Boston cold next winter and come back to visit...if not before then!
