In the historic Faubourg Marigny, three blocks from the French Quarter and one block from the Jazz on Frenchman Street. Built in 1911 and renovated this year with a walk in shower, granite and copper countertops, and a plaster finish in the bedroom. We kept the original details, like rough hewn beams made of barge wood.
The location is ideal for exploring the city during festivals. There is a trolley stop 3 blocks away,plenty of Taxis on Frenchman Street, and we provide 2 loaner bicycles so you can explore the city like a local. We are in a great area and it's easy to access all areas of the city from here. If you're flying in and are just going to be exploring the city then you really don't need to rent a car. There are plenty of places to eat, buy groceries, and pick up anything you may need for your stay within walking distance. Taxi ride from the airport to here is about $30 per 2 persons. If you do need a car or are driving in parking is usually easy on our block, but off street parking is an option. If you don't fee like cooking, walk to one of the nearby cafes or order in. You can find Turkish, Vietnamese, tapas, Thai, vegetarian, classic Creole, German, Italian or Mexican food within a 6 block radius.
We live in the front house and can address questions or concerns if they arise. From our perspective, this neighborhood blends the best of New Orleans.
