We enjoyed the accomodations and felt well taken care of. We were close to everything we wanted to do and see without the need for a car. We were very impressed with the help we got in planning many of our activities and the knowledge of New Orleans both dispensed at breakfast or in the many books and guides in the house. Net-net we had a great visit and will come again.
The best of both worlds: a mix of old world beauty, charm, and grace coupled with the detailed forethought of modern conveniences: La Maisoon Marigny Bed and Breakfast has it all. John and Dewey's exquisite attention to detail made our five-day, four-night experience at La Maison unforgettable. Complementary amenities include light daily breakfasts, a fully stocked refrigerator with refreshing drinks and icy-cold treats for weary travellers, soothing music from a wonderful CD collection, DvD player (with a mini-library of the latest DvD movie selections), wonderfully descriptive New Orleans travel guides in each room, daily house-cleaning, cable-television, and complementary wireless internet access in certain rooms. John and Dewey's gracious southern hospitality and extensive knowledge of local fare and restaurants made our foodie experiences one of the best treats to look forward to each day!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!! We will definitely recommend your establishment to all of our friends and look forward to a return visit soon! - The Woos
My husband and I enjoyed our accommodations tremendously. We had the balcony suite which was decorated beautifully with period pieces and comfort in abundance. We felt totally at home at the Marigny due to our gracious host John and the beautiful house where we had free reign. John was serving wonderful baked breakfasts every morning along with fresh fruit salad. He is a very informative and accomplished host, his restaurant suggestions were superb! We were enthralled with New Orleans, we loved the location of the Marigny, which was on the fringe of the French Quarter (two minute walk) from all the spectacular stores, bars, French Market, Jackson Square, etc., which eliminated our need for a car. I would go back in a heartbeat and the Marigny would definately be my choice for lodgings! Thank you John & Dewey!!!
I had a fabulous 4-night stay at this lovely B&B in a quiet neighborhood at the far end of Bourbon St. John provided the perfect map for walking and made a number of casual and fine dining recommendations that were right on the money. (Thanks, John...I am now craving an unobtainable muffaletta sandwich from Central Grocery...hmmm..unless they'll ship to Massachusetts.) The rooms are as charming as the host. I stayed in the Owner's Suite which includes a bedroom and a front parlor. You can't go wrong staying here!!
Fabulous! This is truly a home away from home. My wife and I enjoyed John's (and Rich's) warm hospitality and homemade breakfast. John always had terrific recommendations on things to do and places to eat. We felt like we were staying at a friends house who really enjoyed showing off their town. Now we have a home to stay in every time we head to New Orleans. We miss it already.
I just returned from a four-day stay at this manificent B&B. I would highly encourage anyone looking for a quality residence to choose LMM. I have had the pleasure of staying in B&B's across the country and in France and Great Britain, and LMM would be in my top 3 of all of those. La Maison Marigny is located on a very quiet street within walking distance of the French Quarter and the wonderful night life of Frenchman Street. You will feel you have come home when you return at the end of the day to your beautifully decorated room. There has been great attention to detail in the decor of the rooms. Not only do you have a beautiful room to sleep in, but there is a fabulous sun room and kitchen. John is an exceptionally charming host who made us feel like friends instead of visitors. He provides cold drinks and internet access (just what you need after a day in the steamy French Quarter!). He was very attentive to our needs, and all of the statements that others have made about him are true!You cannot go wrong if you choose to stay at La Maison Marigny!
The thing I like about staying at La Maison Marigny is how it always offers many contrasts. For instance, it's a beautifully-decorated house with gorgeous linens so one would expect a rather stuffy owner. The opposite is true. John and Dewey and so casual, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to help! The location on Bourbon: one would think it's noisy and annoying. Again, not true! Quiet as can be but you are still so close that you can walk everywhere. I know there are many good hotels and bed-and-breakfasts in New Orleans but I really can't imagine why you'd stay elsewhere once you've discovered La Maison Marigny. --Steve Berg, Lexington, KY
