The owners were some of the most welcoming and most accommodating hosts I've met in my lifetime. They made sure my friends and I were enjoying our stay the entire time. The location is based not too far from the party of Frenchmen St/ French Quarters and a 20-minute walk from The Joint BBQ (really good brisket). The innkeeper was...

This house was a perfect spot for a large group...we were 14 girls in total, and had room to spare! The whole staff was amazing, helpful, and all around a pleasure to work with. Not to mention the delicious food downstairs :) The beautiful large balcony was an great feature as well, hence the property name. Location was great --...

I'll get this out of the way: if you travel to be waited on hand and foot, this is not the spot for you. And in fact, that is what I probably loved most about it. The experience is akin to staying with gracious friends for a few days; they give you the key and you come and go as...

Friendly Staff. Accommodating. Charming place. Close to major areas. Vibrant neighborhood with great little eateries. Quiet at night, but not so far away that you can't walk to French Quarter! Amazing for couples or groups, I went with 20 friends for my spouses 30th bday and it was awesome!!

I stayed at another property owned by this group. A beautiful house with excellent furnishings and superb location near the French Quarter. I walked to all locations from there. The walking tours especially the Vodoo one were very easy to get to.

I stayed in the Balcony Guest House for 2 nights in April. My friend lives nearby so it was a perfect location. The neighborhood is lovely -- quiet streets of colorful houses, great bars, cafes and restaurants, and not far from the French Quarter. My room was small, but clean and had a tv, fridge and microwave. There's a shared...

The location of this hotel is fantastic! It literally was only a 15-20 min walk to downtown. The hotel itself was fun and quirky. Beautiful greenery lining the sidewalk to the outside of the property. They also give you a complementary cocktail upon arrival which is super cool. We stayed in room 1. Although very clean, the room leans badly....

We went to New Orleans for four nights to enjoy some time alone before the chaos of the holidays. The Balcony Guesthouse provided the perfect setting for us to relax and enjoy one another's company and still be close to all the nightlife and excellent restaurants that New Orleans has to offer. Indeed the location can't beat - so close...

Experience a bit of home away from home. The French door balcony access was nice. A unique experience surrounded by antiques and history. Close to the French quarter. Great food at the restaurant and full service bar.

I wish we could give a better review but we can’t. Here’s why: 1. In spite of texting a question about extending our stay right after booking the night of 11/24, I never got a response. I finally resorted to searching (again) on Trip Advisor to ascertain that there were no rooms available the night of the 25th. 2. We...

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.
