The Balcony Guest House is a part of a remarkable complex in the heart of the Marigny. Besides some surprisingly nice rooms upstairs, Schiro's has a bar and restaurant downstairs that specializes in tasty Indian food and affordable New Orleans fare. Next to it is one of the few laundromats in the area. Back in the restaurant, there is a liquor and wine store with a fantastic range of great wines at competitive prices.
When you think about, you could theoretically live at Schiro's/Balcony forever and never have to leave.
But that would be a shame since you are in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in one of America's most exciting cities.
The one room we stayed in (with dog!) faced onto Royal, and we had access to the balcony through a door. Here you could sit and watch the fun on Royal while sampling some of the wine from downstairs. The rooms have been redone, with a lovely sitting area at the top of the stairs and beautifully refinished heart-of-pine floors. Our room was smallish, but comfortable. The breakfasts (served downstairs in the restaurant to guests only since the restaurant only opens for lunch) are great, especially on weekends when you can select from the brunch menu. Rates are inexpensive.
