I can't say enough about this place. It's a true Bed & Breakfast, right down the the small & helpful staff. It's clear that this place is loved and cared for. Beautiful setting for a tropical and completely relaxing vacation off the beaten path, yet close to the Quarter. The courtyard with pool, hot tub and bar area are lushly landscaped and very well kept with a pond, fountains and several places to sit with a group or by yourself in peace. Each room is uniquely decorated with old world charm and the beds are VERY comfortable. Continental breakfast is just enough to start your day right with fresh fruit, hot & cold cereals, yogurt and all the right "mix-in's", toast, bagels & excellent coffee. If you prefer something a bit more stick to your ribs later, there is an excellent breakfast place literally steps away that offers a $1 cupcake with any entree purchase. This place is an oasis for the weary traveler or people who can truly appreciate all the love and care it takes to run a such a wonderful place. I will return again and again! Much love and gratitude to Ed, Ben & Jackie. ~Scooter~
This was a gem. Was recommended by a friend of a friend. I am so glad I stayed there for 3 nights. Ed the owner is so kind. Room was great. Wonderful location.
Breakfast was okay but there is a fabulous bakery across the street.
The pool is wonderful and I swam twice. The garden is gorgeous.
We stayed in bedroom C. The lobby was decorated nicely and the pool and hot tub were nice. The stairs to the rooms were steep so it would not be handicapped accessible but this was not an issue for us. The hallway was hot but inside the rooms, the air conditioning was AMAZING. The host helped carry our bags to our room and was very kind and informative! He also gave us a map to help us around town. For the location, service, place and price I definitely recommend this B&B!
My husband (NOLA native) and I checked in a few days before New Years during the storm-induced travel disaster period that grounded flights and made us late, and stayed through the new year. Ed waited up for us and stayed in contact as we made our way down to New Orleans. The property is beautiful and perfectly located near some of the best restaurants in the city. The room (Sun Room) was great, and we couldn’t be happier with our experience. The sun room is adjacent to the breakfast area, but we never got around to waking up early enough to partake - while he apologized for the commotion each morning, we didn’t find the noise to be a problem. I’d highly recommend this spot for anyone who’s interested in staying in the Marigny/Bywater and would enjoy walking around the city - we come back a lot and have stayed all over the city, and their spot on Chartres is my favorite.
We (Couple; 60 years (male), 47 yrs (female) stayed with the Lions Inn in may 2017. From our room (with shower/bathroom) we overlooked the Inn´s garden. It´s so beautiful! No, it is overwhelming (that's was Simone said)! Breakfast was great. The Landlord, Ed, offered everything a European stomach is longing for. He was very friendly and googled the internet several times to help us to enjoy our stay. Next to the Inn there's Silk Road House - a great place to stay and have seafood and a cold beer. We will come back to the Inn to experience Mardi Gras in 2019 .... I forgot: we've chosen the Inns because our main objective was to visit Frenchmen Street more than the the well known Bourbon Street. Implementing this idea, the Inn is a great place to stay. The walking distance to Frenchmen Street is about five minutes ....
