Welcome to the Blue60 Guest House, in the center of the Faubourg Marigny district of New Orleans. We are surrounded by a wonderful selection of restaurants, small corner cafes with outdoor tables, live music venues, bars, and a world of charm that many tourists rarely get to experience. The house is located just a few blocks from the famous French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Frenchman Street, and half a block from the new North Rampart Streetcar line. Built in 1842, the Blue60 is rich with character. We have four large guest suites and one guest room, each with a private outdoor entrance, a private bathroom, 48" HD TV with cable, a mini fridge, microwave, CBTL coffee maker with complimentary coffee pods, in-room safes, and free WiFi throughout the property. After a long day exploring, make yourself at home on the back while patio relaxing in our hot tub and listening the rustle of the palm trees above. I share day to day operations with my manager Will Bennett who has lived in the city for over 30 years. We are a just half a block from the new North Rampart Streetcar stop and a 10 minute walk to the French Quarter & Bourbon Street, and 4 blocks from the hottest spots on Frenchman Street. The Marigny has a large selection of restaurants, renowned live music venues, bars, and a world of charm that most tourists rarely get to experience. It’s all within a 6 block radius. If you are visiting to celebrate Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras, Southern Decadence, or one of the cities frequent cultural offerings, the Blue60 Guest House provides a peaceful respite, yet is walking distance to most of the major attractions that give New Orleans such a unique flair for life! We welcome you to step into our world.

My husband and I traveled to New Orleans for a family wedding and stayed at the Blue60 Guest House. Our room had so many fun, quirky artwork pieces, and was truly a unique place to stay. The room was uber comfy..our huge bed was perfect for good sleeping and there was a place to lounge in the room on the day bed or easy chair. Everything we needed was there-it was so well equipped for a traveler! The outside area had so many nooks and crannies to curl up in-I spent part of an afternoon in a cushion lined porch swing, napping and reading. We saw Josh a couple of times while we stayed and he was so friendly and had great suggestions for places to eat and go! Staying at Blue60 made our stay in New Orleans extra special. Thanks Josh!

Property's Favorite Review
It is in the perfect location. Wonderful local supermarket right across the street. Convenient to everything - bars, restaurants, Frenchmen Street, the Bywater, the French Quarter and the streetcar. There is so much to do and see, and all within walking distance. The rooms and suites are lovely, roomy and clean. Coffee, tea and bottled water are provided. Plenty of shady outside space for relaxing and/or hanging out with other guests. Will and Josh are both awesome. Book the Blue60. You won't regret it.

Blue60 Guesthouse has become my favorite place to stay when I come to New Orleans, which is at least 2-3 times a year. Joshua and Will are the best hosts anyone could ask for. The rooms and grounds are lovely and the location couldn't be better. Walking distance to tons of restaurants and bars, a park, the streetcar, a Starbucks, Robert Fresh Market (which has homemade food and a walk in beer cooler!) and anything else you could possibly ask for. And, if you are not a walker, it is a short, inexpensive cab or Lyft ride to the Bywater, French Quarter, Central Business and Warehouse districts. There is plenty of quite, shady outside space and the rooms are comfy and inviting. I guarantee, you will not regret booking a room here. Will and Joshua will do everything possible to make your stay fantastic.

So I have been to New Orleans probably 40 times and this is the first place that I will try to stay at again. I have stayed at plenty of nice places, but love trying something new and love finding "a deal." Everything is great from the rooms (try to stay where your entrance is not facing the road) to the court yard with a hot tub to the owner/ manager to the neighborhood. Don't be a lame tourist and stay in the quarter. The marigney and bywater district is where you can hang out with locals. Oh yeah, the house cat is adorable and sooo friendly. Would stop by again if Blue60 was sold out just to say hi to the cat.

Thank you for such a wonderful and thoughtful review! I’m so glad you liked it here. You're always welcome to stop in to say hi to Colette! (the cat). She can't seem to get enough attention. I agree about booking a room that doesn't face the street (unless you like to people watch). My favorite room is the Porch Suite. Looking forward to seeing you again,

Everything from booking to checking in was a breeze. Joshua was incredibly helpful and made sure I had everything I needed when I arrived. I felt very taken care of!! You can tell from the room and outdoor patio "nooks" that a lot of thought and care went into this place. Not only is it gorgeous and cozy but all the little details truly made it a unique place to stay. Tons of stuff nearby and the quarter is only a 10-15 min walk. Def coming back again!
