Travellers' Choice
Welcome to the Blue60 Guest House, in the center of the Faubourg Marigny district of New Orleans. We are surrounded by a wonderful selection of restaurants, small corner cafes with outdoor tables, live music venues, bars, and a world of charm that many tourists rarely get to experience. The house is located just a few blocks from the famous French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Frenchman Street, and half a block from the new North Rampart Streetcar line. Built in 1842, the Blue60 is rich with character. We have four large guest suites and one guest room, each with a private outdoor entrance, a private bathroom, 48" HD TV with cable, a mini fridge, microwave, CBTL coffee maker with complimentary coffee pods, in-room safes, and free WiFi throughout the property. After a long day exploring, make yourself at home on the back while patio relaxing in our hot tub and listening the rustle of the palm trees above. I share day to day operations with my manager Will Bennett who has lived in the city for over 30 years. We are a just half a block from the new North Rampart Streetcar stop and a 10 minute walk to the French Quarter & Bourbon Street, and 4 blocks from the hottest spots on Frenchman Street. The Marigny has a large selection of restaurants, renowned live music venues, bars, and a world of charm that most tourists rarely get to experience. It’s all within a 6 block radius. If you are visiting to celebrate Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras, Southern Decadence, or one of the cities frequent cultural offerings, the Blue60 Guest House provides a peaceful respite, yet is walking distance to most of the major attractions that give New Orleans such a unique flair for life! We welcome you to step into our world.

We loved our stay!! The room was great, it was super quiet, and check in/out were so easy. Ours was a short stay, but Joshua was very responsive and easy to communicate with. We also loved the location - it was in walking distance to so many great restaurants! Also the courtyard areas were a great added bonus, and we enjoyed taking advantage of them in the evenings. Absolutely hope to stay here again on our next trip!

Property's Favourite Review
It is in the perfect location. Wonderful local supermarket right across the street. Convenient to everything - bars, restaurants, Frenchmen Street, the Bywater, the French Quarter and the streetcar. There is so much to do and see, and all within walking distance. The rooms and suites are lovely, roomy and clean. Coffee, tea and bottled water are provided. Plenty of shady outside space for relaxing and/or hanging out with other guests. Will and Josh are both awesome. Book the Blue60. You won't regret it.

I loved how easy it was to check in and out here, having the property owner and manager so accessible, and how clean and well cared for everything was. The property is within walking distance of many amazing music venues, restaurants, and other points of interest. I also loved that the rooms were all electronic keys and I did not have to worry about losing a physical key and could just punch in the codes when we came back from a day/night out. Overall an amazing place to stay and I highly recommend it!

Perfect for going out, and perfect for staying in. Great location within walking distance of the quarter and Frenchmen street. Comfortable beds and wonderful amenities, plus gracious and kind hosts and a beautiful, sweet house kitty friend.

Joshua’s property is such a unique gem! There is a luscious courtyard, and every inch of the indoor and outdoor space is packed with character. We were so comfortable on our visit that we barely wanted to leave, but all the action on Frenchmen St is a short walk away. Will, the manager, is full of recommendations as well. On our next visit to New Orleans, we will definitely be repeat customers! Well done on a cute, quiet, comfortable space that made us feel like locals!
