My husband and I stayed here one night. It was the perfect spot. A block off Bourbon Street and. Block from Frenchman Street so it was nice to get back to our room away from the crazies. Our room was so sweet! We had a loft style room with the bed and bathroom up a spiral staircase. Jason, the manager...

My husband and I stayed here for our belated honeymoon. Most authentic local experience we could've asked for. Staff were helpful, friendly, and locals that had more knowledge than you could imagine. There are renovations being done to the courtyard and pool but these will be improvements that make our next stay that much better. Management lives close so any...

Jean Lafitte House was the perfect place to stay for a true authentic Nola feel. The history of the building, the guest rooms, the courtyard and pool are perfection. Rustic Shabby Chic feel with an amazing staff. I arrived at a very late check in and the staff waited on me. Everything was kept clean and in wonderful condition. The...

We had this hotel booked for our daughter and friends for VooDoo Fest weekend. By kids I mean 1 graduated 1 in final years of college and two young gentlemen that happen to be Navy pilots. Daughter gets email; not even a phone call, to tell her that their room had a broken "water pipe". They were all traveling in...

I simply adore this hotel. It was a last minute switch from our original hotel, but I'm so glad I decided to go with it. The hotel manager Jason was friendly and accommodating. He gave excellent recommendations for dining nearby.My family and I were only there for the weekend so that I could take my daughter to her first Fall...

Hotel is currently under renovation but you honestly couldn't tell because there was no noise giving it away. Stayed in a newly renovated room that was charming, comfortable and very clean. In a great historic building with some great character that is just outside of the French Quarter. Close enough to walk to many places but far enough that partiers...

We booked this place through our timeshare and we stayed in a one-bedroom on the second floor in the back overlooking the pool. The room was nice. It had just been updated and the distance to everything was perfect. We walked everywhere! Can't wait to go again. We will be returning this June with friends who are going for the...

We got the 2 bdrm suite which comfortably slept 6 of us. When we arrived(which was a bit early) I contacted the MGR as there was a posting advising of his number if we did arrive early or had any questions. He advised that he was currently at their other property but had the housekeeper available for us to check-in...

I stayed with Chris, who reviewed last. Hotel was clean and had So.Much.Character! I loved having two bathrooms, and all those stairs helped me walk off some of what I ate from the delicious nearby Ruby Slipper and Dat Dog. I was also a little frustrated about the hours the desk kept. I'd tried to call a few time to...

There were 5 of us staying in the 3rd floor suite. It was great because there was a bedroom upstairs with a pull out couch, two couches in the living area that were pull outs and another bedroom. There were also two bathrooms which was awesome with that many people. The kitchenette was clean and stocked fairly well too. There...

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.
