Before we even arrived at the Banana Courtyard, Mary stayed in great contact with me regarding our Thanksgiving Day plans (where to eat, etc.). It was truly a pleasure to stay at their B&B. Rich with history and an eclectic vibe. We all slept like babies at night. You felt safe and warm inside while the city outside kept partying!!...

This is a quaint & quirky place. The history is really cool, the house was built in late 1800's with fascinating "brothel" history. The whole set up is great, although I'm worried about the structural integrity of this house. The house could use some strengthening of the foundation and walls, it feels like you aren'I'm t walking on even ground...

When I saw the rooms depicted of the Banana Courtyard B&B I knew it was for me.

This was our second time to stay with Mary and Hugh at the Banana Court. They accommodated our stay at the last minute and made everything wonderful!. This quaint little B&B is off the normal beaten path so it is quiet and still close enough to walk to the Quarter and even better for a very very short cab ride!....

Dear Kelly_Hudler, The location of a B and B can be a tricky thing. For many of our previous and current guests, our location at the edge of the French Quarter is just right.

This B&B is not what you would expect from a bed and breakfast at all. Breakfast is served between 8 and 10 you'll get slices of banana, bagel and toast if your lucky a crossaint, coffee and orange juice. You must call 30 min prior to eating so the toast will be warm.

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.
