We have tried many hotels and B/Bs over the years in N.O. but always come back to Lions Inn. Owner, Mr. McLamb, and his excellent staff, simply cannot improve on the warm and exceptional services, accommodations, beauty and Old World European style of rooms and grounds. Back yard is our favorite oasis, with hot tub, cocktails and pool. And easy... More

We were put in a condo on Dauphine st and were stuck without internet or phone or any sympathy.it wouldnt have been so bad if Ed hadnt denied that there was a problem. I thought the customer was always right. Watch out for the 40 dollar Cleaning fee attached.

I stayed in the Honeymoon cottage which is two doors down from the Lions Inn. The Lions Inn manages this property and I must say, does a fabulous job! The house was clean, well stocked, and I feel very sure if a problem popped up they would be there to take care of it. Fortunately, everything was awesome! The folks... More

This has been the 3rd year we have come to the Lion's Inn B&B for the Thanksgiving Holiday, and once again it did not disappoint!

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.

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.
