Positives: great Marigny/Bywater location, especially if you're into the local culture of New Orleans and not the ersatz venues of the French Quarter. Charming old houses put together into one guesthouse with a very nice courtyard with a hot tub and pool. (I was there in winter so I didn't go swimming, but if you're visiting while it's hot, I...

The place is run by Floyd and some nice folks who help do all the things needed in a well kept B&B. Every morning when you wake up, you can walk into the kitchen and Floyd has coffee, bagels, fruit, etc waiting for you. Floyd has a smart-alec attitude and is fun to chat with. Other guests may be already...

The Lions Inn is the only place we will stay when we come to NOLA. We have been here 4 times, and Floyd, the owner, knows us by name. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a lot of local flavor, and the continental breakfast in the morning is a money and time saver! You have to walk about a...

I spent the weekend at the Lion's Inn with my daughter. What an incredible weekend. This Inn is fabulous. Clean and Authentic! Floyd- The Inn Keeper is a unique host and you will have to learn and understand his "unique" sense of humor. Do not take anything personally. It is all edgy and fun. Floyd is generous and community minded....

My wife and I have never been to New Orleans and were looking forward to the sites and listening to quality jazz. We wanted to stay in a B & B, but wanted to be near the French Quarter as we were going to be without a car. Upon calling Lions Inn, they suggested that we stay in their 1...

Floyd is an outstanding host, and we always have a great time at the Lions Inn in New Orleans. The pool and garden make it so difficult to leave the premises, and in fact, much of our time is spent lounging poolside. The rooms are well-kept and comfortable, and Room #1 in particular opens up directly to the pool. It's...

I am truly sorry if you found me rude, but there had not been a complaint before or after your stay at lions Inn regarding the A/C system in your room. I assume you found me rude when I pointed out that the room door must be kept closed in order to cool the room, as the hall-way is not...

My partner and 6 year old daughter and I loved our stay at Lion's Inn. The guests were mixed--American and international, young and old, gay and straight, business and leisure. Every evening, guests were welcome to get together around the pool, share a glass of wine and get to know one another; however, the inn is quiet and very comfortable...

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood 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.
