My wife and I stayed here in January for her birthday. We liked the location because it was at the end of Bourbon, so we could get to the French Quarter and Frenchmen St very easily. The bed was incredibly comfortable and we had a balcony that overlooked Bourbon St. John was a great host. The breakfasts that he made us were so delicious. John was quite the host, and we plan to stay with him when we can get back to NOLA.
We were looking for a place to stay that was centrally located but that offered some privacy and room to socialize with our own group: four couples traveling together. We could not have described a better scenario than La Maison Marigny.
We rented the entire house so each couple had their own comfortable room and bathroom. We shared the kitchen area and spent every morning enjoying coffee in the enchanting courtyard in the back of the house. We didn't cook very much because of all the amazing cafes and restaurants, but the kitchen was truly appreciated for making drinks, ice, etc. We were even able to do a quick load of laundry.
John was the perfect host. He was easy to communicate with in advance, greeted us when we arrived, and was available to answer questions any time. He gave us maps, supplied us with all the information we could use, and even had warm cookies waiting for us (not to mention some wine) when we arrived.
But truly the best thing about this house was the location. It is an easy walk to Frenchman Street and a quick stroll into the French Quarter. It was hard to believe that you could be dancing in the street to a brass band and then walk three blocks home and have absolute peace and quiet. But you can!
This was my third time staying at LaMaisonMarigny and and as usual the stay was perfect. Lovely quiet rooms just out of the noise of the quarter and Frenchman Street but close enough to walk everywhere. John is a great host and prepared great breakfasts every day. My only place to stay in NOLA.
It was in the perfect location for a bed and breakfast. Located on a rather quiet end of bourbon street. The rooms were great. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all I would definitely suggest a stay here
We stayed for our anniversary. The B&B is very nice and located on a quiet end of Bourbon st. Only one morning I was woke up by people yelling on the street. It's about 7 blocks to the action. The room was comfortable, and very clean. Breakfast was good every morning and John will go the extra mile if you have dietary needs that are different from the other travelers.
Otherwise, I dont think we will return to NOLA. It was a poorly chosen destination for a anniversary. There is little romantic about drunks urinating in the street- it's not lika a walk on the beach! Do take the cemetery tour and the swamp tour, those were highlights of our trip. The B&B was wonderful-everything you would want.
A short walk into the quarter, and about 2 blocks from Frenchman street, perfect location. John is a wonderful host, he really made us feel at home and his breakfasts were great! La Maison is our new home base whenever we are in New Orleans!
I chose this B&B because of the great reviews and the location, and the fact that it was more affordable than some of the smaller hotels near by. It did not disappoint. In fact it far exceeded expectation and was so much better than some of the near by hotels.
John (one of the owners) was the ultimate host!
I was worried at first, when he said he didn't live on the property. But he was there every morning to greet us with a wonderful breakfast, coffee; and every day something new to try! He was available by phone or email for anything else that came up. The rooms were lovely - really cool decor, rich tones in the bedding and window treatments; very New Orleans in style; the bed was super comfortable and the furniture also tastefully appointed.
The house has a really pretty courtyard with a nice, comfy seating area, complete with a fountain and pretty flowers.
I would/hope to go back soon!
