Balcony Guest House suited us very well. It felt very New Orleans. Pricing was moderate and included breakfast. (fresh made, decent, filling, a bit greasy) The titular balcony is a great place to rest and relax between sightseeing. Rooms are perfectly adequate. This is not luxury living in the French Quarter, but rooms are clean and comfortable. The downstairs restaurant/bar/liquor... More

Loved the location in the very colourful Marigny, away from the more "touristic" part of N.O.The Balcony Guest House is one of the very charming and beautiful houses. Stayed for two nights. I never got a room with a balcony but got a suite instead. It was December so no problem. As usual a very big, very comfortable American bed.... More

What a great time. A perfect guesthouse in a great area. Everything was quaint, quiet, safe, respectful, neat, unique, not perfectly clean but perfectly kept, character filled, decorated with thought and artful. The thought that went into creating this space is executed with homey design not to be replicated in any chain hotel, five star or not. A choice of... More

I had a great experience staying at the Balcony Guesthouse. My mother and I decided to do a mother-daughter pre-christmas trip to New Orleans and arrived mid-morning.

BEAUTIFUL find!! I found this quaint, little place last minute when we decided we wanted to stay in NOLA New Year's Eve.

Amazing stay! The staff were cordial and attentive to my groups' needs, breakfast was great, and it's in a great area. Quiet from the French Quarter but easily within walking distance. Lots of space that made sharing with a group of friends convenient and comfortable. I would absolutely book again.

What a wonderful experience!! I have stayed at the Balcony several times now over the past eight years.

My wife and I chose this location for our romantic honeymoon getaway. We didn't want to stay in a typical hotel as the culture of a town is often lost in such establishments.

We are very sorry that our guest was disappointed in our service. Due to a maid error, an extra set of linen, etc. was not left in the suite. After several attempts, when I finally reached her, I offered to come back to the B&B, at a late hour of the night, and provide her with the linens. She informed... More

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.
