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

Since my 1st review, I’ve been back 2 (it might be 3) times. I think my favorite room i remains #4, which I just departed this morning. One sad change: no more happy hour. Seems the City of New Orleans don’t want folks serving free alcohol. Killjoys. Same manager, same charm, same cute dog. Check em out.

The inn is located within walking distance of the French Quarter with the best bakery across the street. Ed has a great breakfast and the atmosphere is idyllic. This is the only place to stay in NOLA.

We spent 4 nights at the Lions Inn in the Marigny District and found it an excellent place to stay. We walked to the French Quarter and Frenchman St. When we needed to go farther, we walked 4 blocks to the Riverfront Streetcar, which came every 15 minutes most times of the day. Since we're seniors, it was only 40 cents a trip, with a transfer. What a deal. We selected the largest room, Room C, so we would have space. We loved it under the eaves, with a large bathroom and plenty of room. The breakfast, as advertised, was a continental breakfast, but with more than enough delicious food to choose from and fill you up. The grounds are gorgeous. Melody, who was there while the owner traveled, was friendly and helpful and accommodated our schedule. She even helped adjust our

I can't say enough about the hospitality, great room comfy bed. I have had some pretty shabby breakfasts served to me. Not so here, yummy things in a wide selection. The best part is you can sit and the dining room table or take your breakfast outside and sit in the award winning garden. its shady and serene, ask for directions anywhere and Ed can tell you how to get there . Two handy restaurants within easy walking distance. Good food. It's the Big Easy at its best. Property is immaculate. Great host ....What else could you want ? Don't wait around to book its very popular.
