This was the first visit to New Orleans for my husband and I. We loved this historic beauty. Alison is an excellent innkeeper and provides helpful suggestions for restaurants, tours and directions. We felt right at home from the start. It was a great location-close enough to walk to the French Quarter yet far enough to provide quiet retreat. Breakfast...

The courtyard suite is a very spacious and private. The breakfasts were always tasty! The B&B is a short walk from the Quarter, and...

If a quiet retreat to wind down after a full day in the Big Easy is what you seek you'll find it here. My wife and I spent a two day holiday at this amazing B&B. The pleasant scent of the Sweet Olive trees, that surround the garden like setting, only added to the welcome from Allison the inn's keeper....

We spent three nights at Auld Sweet Olive. Our room was comfortable and breakfasts were served buffet style. We really enjoyed the other guests, who enlivened our stay. Our hostess was very knowledgeable about New Orleans and was extremely helpful, providing us with maps and recommendations. The Marigny neighborhood was interesting and safe and there were nearby dinning options. The...

My wife and I chose the Sweet Olive to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary along with friends of ours from Albuquergue. Behind a wrought iron fence, we found the perfect bed and breakfast. The Sweet Olive was as sweet as its name. From the greeting by ever helpful innkeeper Alison to the final goodbye by owner Nancy, this B&B lived...

Took my husband away for a few days for his birthday. I decided to try a BNB for the 1st-time, hoping it would make the trip memorable. So glad we stayed here!

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.
