A couple of years ago I went to a conference in NOLA at the last minute and had a hard time getting a hotel reservation so I picked out this B&B randomly. My friends at the conference were jealous when they saw where I was staying- considering the price was about the same as thier big impersonal hotel. I have been back three times now and would not stay anywhere but La Maison Marigny. The location is superb- you are living like a local in a distinctive residential area but still within walking distance. The Riverfront streetcar line is a short walk away and gets you to the convention center, ferries, aquarium and casino in minutes. A short walk to the heart of Bourbon Street. John is a thoughtful host who shares breakfast, tourist tips and the daily news with you. The house is beautifully appointed and you really feel at home in the common areas- kitchen, sunroom, courtyard.
I recommend it highly. It has become part of our New Orleans experience.
Excellent choice. Quiet, less than 1 mile walk to everything, host is extremely helpful, beautifully decorated, nice courtyard As the host will say, it is your home away from home.
My first visit to New Orleans was made even more delightful by my stay at La Maison Marigny. The host was great. John gave us great tips on where to visit and to eat, made us fabulous breakfasts, made great conversation and above all made us feel welcome. The house was in a great spot--close to the fun on Boubon but far enough away so that we had peace and quiet. The decor of the house is beautiful. In my mind this bed and breakfast is 5 stars.
From the moment John met me at the door, my stay at La Maison was top notch. The accommodations are truly spectacular with beatuiful rooms and a lovely courtyard. I found comfort resting in my wondefully decorated room or downstairs in the living room. John and Dewey made me feel like I was staying at a best friends house and I was truly sad to leave.
John somehow even read our minds by making double chocolate chips muffins that were out of this world.
Without question, my next trip to New Orleans will be spent at La Maison.
We stayed at the La Maison Marigny B&B at the end of January, 2004. The inn was tastefully decorated, clean, and very comfortable. The innkeeper, John, was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back and will tell others!
