... downtown, a 40 minute walk or 10 minute streetcar ride into the centre of all the action. I had flown in from Charleston after kindly being given a lift to the airport by Toni and Alix, the Australians staying with my host, James. The bus ride into town was simple enough and the driver knew exactly where I was headed, dropping me off at the closest corner and pointing me the way...at this point I was then greeted by an oldish guy stood on the sidewalk who, upon ...
... we could!
Sunday morning we headed into town, drove across the longest causeway I think I've ever seen and into the hustle and bustle of New Orleans. Mixed in with slightly run down buildings was the most glorious architecture - porch fronted quaint homes, iron railing balconied vistas and colourful slatted structures, all aligning long long avenues as far as the eye could see. Hurricane Katrina certainly made its mark but this city has fought back, it is quite ...
... do not take credit cards. You will need cash. Go quite a ways through Matamoros on this road until you see a McDonalds on your left. This intersection is a little tricky. There is a sign that says to turn left to Ciudad Victoria. Stay to the right of the overpass directly in front of you and you will turn left under the overpass from the center lane. Immediately after you go under the overpass there is a bank, (Banorte), with an ATM. At ...
... sits at the top of a double door fridge he is about six foot seven! Kev is another funny entertaining person and the time flies while he shows us how to make all the dishes giving great tips along the way. As soon as the pralines are ready they serve up jugs of local beer and hand out the warm fresh pralines for everyone to try....oooohhhh yuuuuummmmm!!! A second one? Yes please!! Kev then serves up bowls of the gumbo for everyone and a plate ...
... when a guy photo bombed me then expected I pay him for wreaking my photo. I've been to to many bigger meaner city's to fall for that one so told him to take a jump. We rode p to Gracelands by 9 and purchased the tour tickets to do the entire thing. The first thing you notice is that the tourist centre has both Elvis's aircraft parked in front. Seems surreal to have a 707 airliner called Lisa Marie and a smaller Lear jet called Hound Dog 2 in the front but man are they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Maison Marigny B&B on Bourbon New Orleans
After trying nearly every hotel, motel and B&B in New Orleans, I now only stay at La Maison Marigny. This small B&B is luxurious, tastefully decorated, and scrupulously clean. My favorite room is the downstairs suite that has two fireplaces, gleaming wood floors, a four poster bed, chenille drapes, a Regency daybed in the sitting area, along with a stocked CD player, DVD player and Cable TV. Towels are fluffy, the bathroom is new and fully stocked -- there's even Tom's of Maine toothpaste! Breakfast is yummy with homemade muffins, scones, fruit and cereal. If you're lucky, mimosas are sometimes served! A lovely courtyard tops it all off. All this at a price that would get you windowless shoebox anywhere else. The location is quiet and safe, yet close to everything. I recommend this place wholeheartedly, especially if you want a truly New Orleans feel -- it just gets better every time I visit.
Best yet in New Orleans
My wife and I have visited New Orleans for the past eight years and have stayed in many places. We now have a new "home" at Le Maison Marigny. The Bed and Breakfast is delightful and luxurious and the physical location is a real plus. It was $100 a night cheaper than a room at the boxy Sheraton, too.
Clean and comfortable. Wonderful hosts who were very attentive yet "left us alone" to explore when needed. I loved the "our favorite places" map given to us when we checked in. I felt like a local!
Perfect accommodation - we loved it!
Perfect holiday - the apartment next door to the bed & breakfast was fantastic - scupulously clean, private, safe, quiet, close to all attractions and very good value for the money. Mike & Garland were very helpful and although the apartment/unit was self contained with no housekeeping, they provided tons of soap, towels, clean bedding, toilet & kitchen rolls, coffee, tea, sugar, beer etc etc. They also had a hairdryer, iron & ironing board in the apartment. I highly recommend this as an ideal place to stay!! Thanks for making our stay in New Orleans a memorable vacation. Also recommended for breakfast is Clover Grill and Port Of Call for great burgers, which are very close by.
Excellent place to stay--clean and beautiful. John gave us great recommendations for restaurants in the area and was a friendly and relaxed host. Fresh muffins at breakfast were a nice treat. Air conditioning works well for those not used to the heat and humidity.
Location very convenient--within walking distance of all the fun and shopping but far enough away from the noisier areas to have uninterrupted sleep. I would stay here again on my next trip.
Superior as usual!
Just returned from fifth visit in two years. The just-finished renovation is fantastic. You guys did a swell job. I think it looks nicer than rooms at many 4 star hotels. Only drawback is that you are FULL the next time I want to visit.
We stayed here in early June. Very nice rooms that are due to be remodeled this summer! They don't need remodeling though. Thoughtful guys running the place, from extra towels to irons and hair dryers in the room to lots of great tour and restaurant suggestions.
Very comfortable! Nice rooms and nice guys running the place but my favorite thing was just the LAID BACK, EASY GOING atmosphere. Grab a beer from the 'frig and chat with other guests in the courtyard--this is my kind of trip.
Gotta agree with the others
The B&B made our trip to New Orleans a special time indeed. Champagne in room, comfortable surroundings, very clean. All in all, top notch!
Loved it. Comfy room and super host (John) made it worthwhile. Even during Mardi Gras the 1400 block of Bourbon was peaceful.
