As this was our first visit to New Orleans, the location of this B&B was perfect. Just a 10-15 minute walk to the bars of Bourbon St and a couple of streets away from Frenchman St too. As you are a bit further away from the bars, it's quite quiet here except for a bit of street traffic in the morning, so it was perfect for us.
Although the location is perfect, it is the hospitality that makes La Maison Marigny incomparable! John is a very welcoming and helpful host and provides you with a map of the town and helpful hints about where to eat/drink/go. We were greeted with warm cookies and a cold drink on arrival which was very welcome after a long flight from the UK. Breakfast is a real highlight at La Maison Marigny too - John cooks a different one every morning - including Nutella french toast, dirty rice and eggs, and white choc/raspberry pancakes - all of which tasted AMAZING and set us up perfectly for a day's exploring in New Orleans. Lots of coffee and juice and interesting chats at breakfast - a lovely way to start the day.
This is a really great base for exploring the city and its nightlife too and really is a home-from-home as you can use the internet/phone and help yourself to cold drinks and snacks whenever you like.
We had the Balcony Queen room at the front which was lovely - spacious and homely and great to have a balcony too.
Recommended for new visitors to New Orleans or returning travellers! 10/10. I want to go back now!
