The hotel was in a convenient location, with everything I needed within walking distance. It was a safe area. Everyone that worked there was very friendly and helpful. It was easy to find and close to the French quarter. The room was a little small compared to modern buildings, but it was a great experience!

The neighborhood and vicinity to all the must experience areas of New Orleans is ideal. Everything is within a 20 minute walk. Silk Road, adjoining restaurant, is a nice bar and restaurant. Ganesh is a great and friendly chef. Overall we had a great experience. The house itself has a good classic feel to it, lots of character. If you're... More

For a great price we got everything we needed. The entire building had so much charm we didn't want to leave. The food at the restaurant below was amazing with a great staff that made sure you were taken care of. We walked to the French Quarter with no issues and took us around 20 minutes one way. There are... More

We had 16 family members to house for an intimate ceremony. We stumbled upon Balcony Guesthouse and immediately fell in love. The owners and staff were amazing, the beds are unbelievably comfortable, and the location was convenient for everywhere we had to be. It made coming home to the bayou an amazing experience! I would go back in a heartbeat!

Terrific value and location. Attentive owners and staff. If you're an independent and adventurous traveler and can roll w/the occasional bump and enjoy it, this is definitely a place for you. It's the real thing...just like NOLA itself.

I had the best time at Balcony Guest House and a big part was Michelle, The Owners and staff. The room was blissful and I enjoyed my stay, can't wait to visit again and recommend highly and I did too.

Great hotel. Friendly staff, super clean room and bathroom. The usual breakfast, which is what you'd expect at this price range. 15 walk from French Q./Frenchmen Street and located in Mariqny neighborhood. Neighborhood safe to walk in at night. Would stay here again

We arrived here on Wednesday to be greeted with a friendly welcome and a drink on the house. The guest house is a lovely old traditional building which is loved and nurtured by the owners. Our room wasn't huge but it was clean, fresh, a very comfy bed and quiet - what more can you ask for? There is a... More

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.
