EVERYTHING about our stay at Banana Courtyard was wonderful! I have to focus so that this review does not turn into a book on the glories of this place. OK, here we go... LOCATION...a very quick walk from the heart of the French Quarter or to Frenchman Street, even after drinking several Hurricanes...but far enough away to ensure a peaceful...

I am only writing this review due to the experience I have had with trying to obtain information from the Ramseys. Today, after sending 2 messages this morning and ready to get the townhouse, and 3 the previous day, Mary had the audacity to say, "So sorry. I should have indicated the importance of calling. It is now rented, by...

2 couples in mid fifties spent 3 nights here in the Canonball room and the Balcony room upstairs. This place is cozy, friendly, safe, interesting and in a great location to walk to all the action in the FQ. It's unfortunate that many of the windows are covered up to help save taxes and our room was so dark I...

Never did meet Mary or Hugh. Maybe that would have made a difference to our experience. As others have said: 1. strange thing with all the keys, 2. breakfast was served so cold and slowly the first day that we never tried it again, 3. the room was okay - but for $170 a night (three of us in the...

It sounds like you had a disappointing experience when you stayed with us--including some of the quirks that come with a real home from the 1870s. Many of our returning guests look forward to visiting us again. Perhaps in a future visit, you will feel that way as we'll.

I selected this B&B for our Thanksgiving holiday for our party of six based on reviews I read here and other places. I went to college in New Orleans and therefore lived there for a few years. I'm quite familiar with the French Quarter and how things work. I enjoy laid back, funky places so the description and reviews I...

My wife and I just stayed here for three nights and had an outstanding stay. The hosts, Mary and Hugh, were warm, caring and always willing to help, as were their staff members. Clean and richly decorated rooms lifted our spirits. The location was ideal, and we loved hanging out with local just around the corner at a place called...

After our cruise out of New Orleans, we stayed at this B&B, as i thought it would be different experience, then staying at the hotels we previously stayed there. WELL, it was different...you had to climb fire escape steps to get to your room & the room was never cleaned. It had a rug that was dirty & the shower...

It's too bad that you were disappointed during your stay with us. We pride ourselves on the homey flavor of our B & B, especially as it reflects the uniqueness of New Orleans. We hope you will visit our beautiful city again under different circumstances.

This was my second stay in the Pirates' Attic at the Banana Courtyard, and both times my experience was a wonderful one.

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.
