Great Little Hideaway
A friend and I took a gamble on this terrific little B & B after reading the reviews online. Boy that paid off big time. Phillip and David are gracious hosts, very accomodating, and informative. The rooms are compact, definitely not the 4 star hotel type, but clean and more like a real home. It doesn't have the 4 star price either. The courtyard with its heavenly hot tub is a welcoming sight after a day spent roaming the nearby French Quarter. Another perk for the area was street parking in front of the B & B. Most hotels charge up to $21 a day for parking. So if you're up for a little adventure and don't want the ordinary, try this B & B. You won't be disappointed.
Royal Good Time!
We just spent four fabulous post-Mardi Gras days at this great B&B. The Marigny is definitely the neighborhood of choice - quiet and friendly, and just a few blocks from the best jazz in town on Frenchman Street and another couple blocks from the Quarter. Phillip is a wonderful host, and the house is perfect .... the rooms are bigger and brighter than they look on the web and the two with access to the large front balcony are tough to beat! The hot tub in the courtyard - well... perfect way to relax after walking all day. Thanks Phillip - we look forward to our next visit!

Great Location, Very Comfortable
Just returned from this B & B with the certainty that this place will be my port of choice for my next trip to New Orleans. The location -- within walking distance of most things, especially of the waterfront trolly and Frenchman street -- is perfect, but not SO perfect that you're kept up by drunks on the street. Phillip, the owner there when I was there, was enormously useful, almost a concierge in his helpfulness. All that I could request would be a better breakfast -- some kind of local offering from the French Market or a local bakery -- but other than that, everything was lovely.
A lovely place to stay!
I have just returned from spending 5 days at the Royal Street Courtyard with my husband, son and a friend. I simply can not recommend it enough - for hospitality, for cleanliness, for comfort, for convenience for Frenchman Street, the French Quarter and the River, and for a warm friendly welcome from the owner, Philip.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else in New Orleans, should we be lucky enough to go there again - it's a fun place!
A Great Find!
Stayed here on 11/9--11/11, 2004. The location is wonderful being within walking distance of the hippest music and dining scene in the city and withing a $5 cab ride to the French Quarter and a $10 cab ride to Uptown. Also its on a major transit line which can get you almost anywhere for $1.25!
Our room was very comfortable and very clean. The access to the huge gallery(balcony) makes for a really enjoyable way to people watch in total comfort and security. The room prices are quite reasonable for the excellent location and quality of the accomodations plus the $10-$25 parking fee you save per day is an extra bonus.
The best feature of this property however is the innkeeper, Philip. He is upbeat, knowledgeable of the City and just a nice, sincere young man.
We loved it--will be back and recommend this property without reservation!
Two Thumbs Up
This place was great. The owners were quite nice and very accomodating.
This will become my destination of choice whenever I travel to New Orleans.
A lovely, atmospheric inn for a great price
This is a wonderful inn. I've stayed here twice, and would return again. The hotel and rooms are scrupulously clean, charmingly decorated and have a romantic, old-world feel to them. The owners are very friendly, accomodating and helpful, and provide an excellent continental breakfast in the morning. The walk to the French Quarter takes less than 10 minutes; a cab ride to and from the Quarter is only a few dollars.
Very helpful and friendly
My husband and I recently stayed at the Royal Street Courtyard for 3 nights. The owners were very polite, friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. The inn is very well kept and nicely decorated. A bonus is that our little dog was made welcome, as are other well-mannered pets. The only thing to watch out for is room #10. The room itself is very nice, but the small private bathroom is located outside the room off the main upstairs hallway. Unfortunately, this makes it not very private. The other rooms have bathroom entrances inside the rooms. Also, guests who have problems climbing stairs would do well to request a downstairs room. The inn is very conveniently located and is within walking distance of many New Orleans landmarks. I would definitely recommend the Royal Street Courtyard to anyone visiting New Orleans.
A great Inn in a great part of New Orleans
I have been staying at the Royal Street Courtyard for years. On two trips to the city, I stayed somewhere else and regretted it.
The rooms are wonderful, the inn keepers are friendly and helpful. I recommend the Royal Street Courtyard to all of my friends when they are planning trips to New Orleans.
A real treat!
I have stayed at the Royal Courtyard twice. I would highly recommend the Inn. Super clean and the owners are great and very accomodating. Just far away from all the noise, but in a great location. The breakfast in the morning is a nice start to the day and the hot tub a nice treat for the end of the day. I would definitely stay here again.

... any city are the history, the food and the culture. After waking up and doing a fascinating load of laundry, Ted and I headed out towards the French Quarter. It seems that last nights cold snap was unusual, as the weather today was actually wonderful.
We needed to meet near Jackson Square, so Ted and I went there quickly and had breakfast at a nearby diner. I finally got to try grits, a true southern meal. It is similar to porridge and I didn't mind it, as it was quite filling. ...
... was a real treat. I highly recommend this act if you are going to Bourbon Street and love funky soul music played well. They were head and shoulders above the rest of the music which I'd call noise and I'm a huge fan of Korn and Slipknot as well but there was NO heavy or ALTERNATIVE music just ****** POP music. One place was playing ACDC. Were are in the US, in Bourbon Street listening to Aussie Rock? That was ironic. So once we'd had enough we headed back ...
... a lot of culture and history to this place with the French influence. A lot of art shops and museums, delicacies, with tons of bars and restaurants, a lot of which have live bands and jazz music playing throughout the day and night. If you enjoy live music you will love this place. They also have loads of street musicians as well playing away and some really great ones too. Whilst on the walking tour we also went to a shop where they have hundreds of types of ...
... on polystyrene plates, plastic cups with wine and 88 year old grandma nattering on about everything southern and Katrina and when she was in her first mardi gras parade - crazy evening but so worth taking the punt that we weren't going to be chopped up and robbed of the cameras etc!!!! Crime is a huge problem here, the poverty is huge. Oops.. thats our call for the flight.. I'll post again from Miami..and I'll add pix!! Be back soon Y'all xxx ...

One particular Bald Cypress tree is a bit of a landmark to the locals. It is apparently 650 years old, was hit by lightning at some point and is nicknamed 'the Whiskey Tree'. The reason for this is when the locals brewed their illegal moonshine they would meet on a certain night to taste each others brew, decide which was the best and assign the top price to the winner. The best moonshine for the month was able to ...
