The property is absolutely beautiful with lovely architecture, and a great location. Within walking distance to tons of great restaurants and live music venues in the Vieux Carre, Marigny, and Bywater neighborhoods. Room was comfortable. Pool was awesome. Everything was great!

It is a small place with only 23 rooms. It is just off the border of the French Quarter and right down the street from Frenchman Street. We checked in with Kenny and he was wonderful. He offered us a glass of wine and we went over restaurants he would recommend based off of what our tastes were. He took... More

Overall experience was lovely. Staff seemed cool and responsive. We got the Rose room with a view of the pool, very nice marble bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and the pool does not close. It's a very chill relaxing spot.

Just not what its made out to be. Wish someone would wake up the owners. Airconditioning breakdowns, Hour long check-ins, Rude staff (except maybe Brian), Negligible housekeeping, imaginary breakfasts etc etc. Its as if the front desk does you a favour by letting you stay here. They could do so much with this property, but......

OK, maybe not quite in the Marigny, but on the border of this cool part of town and the French Quarter, which is OK too, if you stay off Bourbon Street. We had a standard room and the small fridge was nice along with a great bathroom. Ceiling fan and A/C, so you had your choice to deal with the... More

We are currently staying here. Let me say the room is gorgeous, the bar (buffa's) next door has delicious burgers, and Mallory at the front desk is wonderful. The hotel is in a sketchy area and there's been numerous panhandlers around the hotel including our front door step. Not comfortable for 4 women out of town.The security here is not... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere at the hotel, it was very nice. We were not happy with the mattress in the bed and think the breakfast was a bit simpel. The parking was expensive for one night.Good location.

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.
