We stayed 5 great days at the sweet olive inn. Really warm and freindly people who work threre, and they were all very helpful and happy to recommend restaurants and such. Really liked the organic shampoo and conditioner and the green thinking in general, with the breakfast and recycling of bottles. The location is the best possible, close to a...

As a native of New Orleans, I had high expectations for our stay, and Sweet Olive exceeded them! The home was beautiful; the owner, Nancy and staff Jim and Robbie were incredibly kind and engaging. The neighborhood is delightful and the walk to and from the Quarter was perfect for burning all the calories we ate and drink in the...

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Sweet Olive. It's located walking distance to frenchman's street and the French quarter. We stayed in the cypress room and the owners were friendly. I can't really say much about the breakfast because we didn't wake up in time for it.

There were 4 in our group and we booked the adjoining rooms. We had the best time while in New Orleans. Allison made us feel at ease and as though we were vising with a long time friend. All the rooms were clean and comfortable.The breakfasts were outstanding. Who would have thought our hostess Allison was also an excellent baker...

The room we stayed in was quite nice as it had its own separate entrance with a very comfortable bed. However there was some dust on the ceiling which was probably hard to get to as the ceilings were high. The B&B was in a very nice location in a quaint neighborhood which was walkable to the French Quarter. Some...

Very relaxed friendly atmosphere. Well run and maintained. Nice location away from the hustle of the French Quarter, but still within walking distance. 1 small block from St Rochs market. Best breakfast :-)

This was the first visit to New Orleans for my husband and I. We loved this historic beauty. Alison is an excellent innkeeper and provides helpful suggestions for restaurants, tours and directions. We felt right at home from the start. It was a great location-close enough to walk to the French Quarter yet far enough to provide quiet retreat. Breakfast...

We stayed at the Sweet Olive over Halloween Weekend. Alison, the Innkeeper was amazing. She made us feel at home from the moment we walked in. She was always there to answer any questions we had. The courtyard suite is a very spacious and private. The breakfasts were always tasty! The B&B is a short walk from the Quarter, and...

If a quiet retreat to wind down after a full day in the Big Easy is what you seek you'll find it here. My wife and I spent a two day holiday at this amazing B&B. The pleasant scent of the Sweet Olive trees, that surround the garden like setting, only added to the welcome from Allison the inn's keeper....

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.
