My boyfriend and I stayed at the Lion's Inn during this years JazzFest. It just so happend to be my birthday during my stay here, and I was greeted with a special birthday breakfast muffin that had a birthday candle in it! That was just the beginning of the most amazing vacation of my life. The Lions Inn lets you experience New Orleans to the fullest. Not only is it within very safe walking distance of the French Quarter, it is located in a wonderful area called the Fauberg Marigny, which is a friendly, and active, creative community within New Orleans. It was a magical experience - the owners and visitors at the Lions Inn made this trip truly amazing. Please take a look at the photos I have posted of the wonderful dog Bubba, the beautiful foliage, and fish pond. Thank you

Stuart & Floyd run this inn so that the warmth of their welcome stays with you for months afterwards. The 10 rooms are all clean and made individual with antique furniture. The semi-tropical garden with its swimming pool, hot tub and breakfast patio is the centre of the community that the owners create. This is all done effortlessly so that many guests leave convinced that happiness is running a bed and breakfast. The location in the Marigny means you are in a quieter district than the French Quarter but a short walk and you are in the excitement that the centre of New Orleans has to offer. The room rates will make this a good value holiday as well.

My boyfriend and I spent a week in the Lions Inn Bed and Breakfast, and it is now the only place we'll stay in New Orleans! The rooms were comfortable and well-kept, and the price was very reasonable. The service was absolutely phenomenal. The owners were quick to offer us help with anything we needed, such as breakfast in the morning and directions to places nearby. They were always extremely friendly and made our stay much more pleasant. There is a pool and a hot tub outside, both well-kept, that we were able to use at any time of the day. They also had a fridge filled with drinks for people of all ages to consume. I felt extremely safe there, and extremely welcome. I HIGHLY recommend this bed and breakfast for anyone traveling in New Orleans. It is about 5 blocks from the

Behind the gate of Lion's Inn, guests will find a lush tropical garden surrounding a giant swimming pool and jacuzzi. Typically Bubba will check out who is coming through the gate to make sure you "belong" there. He's quite a friendly dog, taking after his masters, Stuart and Floyd, the owners of the establishment. Their friendly smiles and graciousness give real meaning to the term "southern hospitality". Always ready to have the morning coffee ready for the earliest of risers and the evening wine and cheese party is simply a delight; mixing with other guests, the hosts and some of their friends. Whether it be the "hubbub" of the French Quarter or a restful time around the swimming pool you are seeking, the proximity of Lion's Inn to the French Quarter, and the

More like visitng family or friends than renting a room. The friendliness was fabulous, but hard to describe; it was hard to differentiate between the hosts, their extended family of friends, and the paying guests! My wife & I really liked the homey feel. Three dogs, too, including an ancient dachshund resembling a walking liverwurst. We were there in late Feb 2005, post-Mardi Gras. Every morning we'd breakfast on the patio, with whoever else was awake, then head to the French Quarter for the day. After dinner we'd return, chat with whomever was around, and eventually end up in the hot tub. Our last night we brough Po' Boys home, and ate them on the patio; a few others (a mix of guests & staff & friends) ordered out. Our host, Stuart, was incredibly accomodating
