Our suite consisted of a bedroom, small living room with a queen size fold out couch and a small kitchen. The location was perfect and very quiet, right between the raucous Bourbon Street and Frenchman Street. I highly recommend this hotel and will return!

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

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

We felt safe and really liked the neighborhood. We have been to New Orleans several times and have always felt safe. Always try to be aware of your surroundings.
