#3 of 145 in New Orleans
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.

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.

Three nights in the porch room was a wonderful first time stay in NO. First the good, the decor, the security, the garden and porch swings, the bed and linens and pillows. The downsides which were minor, it’s about a 15 minute walk to where the action is which isn’t a lot but on a very hot day seems just that little bit too far. The water pressure in our room was poor. There’s only one window in the bedroom which when the curtain is open gives very little privacy from the neighbouring house and other guests using other rooms in the same accommodation. But having said all that Id stay here any day over a soulless chain motel and would recommend to others looking for a unique NO experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I appreciate your feedback. Even though the porch suite is my favorite room, I agree with you about the privacy of the window. If you have any suggestions for how I could improve this, I would love to hear them! I’m really happy you enjoyed the property, and I look forward to hopefully seeing you again

Needed a place for a few nights before a cruise. Stumbled across Blue 60, glad I did. Clean, quaint, convenient. Walking distance to Frenchman St and Bourbon St, with a number of bars and restaurants nearby. Stayed in the Desire room. Sitting room, coffee, and a very nice outdoor patio in the bsck. Will definately be my go to for my next New Orleans visit. Thanks, Joshua!
