“Still Perfect”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This was our second visit to Maison Marigny. Since my first review the patio has been re-modelled to provide a great outdoor area for guests to relax and share a beer or two. I can't really add much more to my original review other than La Maison Marigny is still the perfect retreat in New Orleans, thank you John and Dewey.

It's great when new guests find our B&B and rave about it but it's even better when repeat guests come back again and do the same thing! We know folks' travel dollars aren't infinite so we build value into our room rate (breakfast, snacks, wifi, parking, etc) and people notice. Thanks, guys, for choosing New Orleans and La Maison Marigny on your return trip. Hopefully we'll see you again in 2 years!

We just got back from our 3 day stay at La Maison Marigny. We've been to New Orleans many times and have to say this is by far the best place we have stayed. John is so welcoming and an excellent cook - breakfast was yummy!!!! He made us feel right at home and we had great conversations with him. When we returned during the day or at night it felt like we were right at home. We will definitely be back! And - sorry about the feathers!!!

Thanks again!

I only have complimentary things to say about this lovely old B&B. Our room was very comfortable and well-kept daily by the housekeeper. Our friendly host John started our day with a delicious breakfast and made reservations for us at some great restaurants that we might otherwise have never known about. The location on Bourbon St. was within easy walking distance of nearly everything we wanted to do in NO and it was wonderfully quiet. Close-by street parking was always available when we needed it. The newly renovated courtyard is a gem for outdoor relaxation and downtime. Highly recommended.

This B&B was enough of of Bourbon St that it was not noisy at all. Wonderful rooms plus the breakfasts were great. John was so welcoming and helpful with everything we needed. We had the room on the mail floor which had a sitting room with it. It was nice to have since we were with friends and when we got back from dinner we could sit and enjoy ourselves. There is also an outdoor sitting area which is quite nice. Good lighting in the evening if you want to sit and visit. John offered snacks, drinks in the frig and a computer to use if needed. If you want to be near Bourbon St and still be able to sleep... this is the place

Realtors often say "location location location" and we agree...we've got it! You can walk everywhere in the FQ or to Frenchmen Street within minutes. I am so pleased you had a nice visit with us and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

John Ramsey runs an excellent B&B, providing a warm welcome, a good night's lodging, a different and creative breakfast each morning, snacks any time, and lots of excellent conversation and advice. He will gladly help you with your bags, taking them up and down the 19 steep narrow steps to the second floor. The room is comfortable with a good bath and shower. He has no off-street parking, but he will give you a resident's permit to place in your car so you can park and leave your car on the street. The house is right on Bourbon Street, across Esplanade, and just outside the French Quarter. Frenchmen Street and its restaurants and music is practically around the corner. Everything in the French Quarter is within easy walking distance, so you won't need to move your car unless you are leaving. Local public transportation is good, so if you are going downtown or to the Garden District, you can catch the #91 bus nearby. The new gazebo/patio in the back yard is beautiful.

Room Tip: Our room upstairs was very quiet. If you have trouble with stairs, indulge yourself and pop for the...

From the very first contact with our host, John Ramsey, we were happy with our choice of the B&B for our one night stay in New Orleans. John was very helpful with tips about the city and places for dinner.

The B&B was very comfortable. My parents had a very spacious room on the ground floor, My sister and I shared a room on the second floor. Very comfortable beds and showers. The rooms were clean and tastefully decorated.

The addition of the back yard courtyard was an excellent decision. It was very comfortable, sitting outside after coming back from dinner, relaxing with the water feature and the beautiful flowers and plants.

The B&B was on Bourbon Street, but it was not noisy at all! A great night's sleep. Breakfast the next morning was great - Nutella French Toast, served with sausage links. Very tasty!

Thanks John! We'd recommend your B&B to anyone!

While we usually don't have the luxury of accepting one night stays, I'm glad this worked out for you. It was a pleasure meeting you, your sister and the folks! We hope you can come back and stay longer next time! I promise to make that chocolate french toast again. It's one of the dishes guests love most.

We stayed in two B & B's while visiting NOLA. This was our favorite. John is a great host. The B & B is very well located. We walked to and from Frenchmen's St. each night to listen to the wonderful music. We were also close to public transportation. We took the bus to City Park for a wonderful afternoon visit to the park and botanical gardens.

We had the balcony queen room. We loved it. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom was of an adequate size. Being in the front we did here a little street noise at night and in the early morning. If you are a light sleeper you should get one of the rooms in back.

We felt like La Maison Marigny was our home away from home while we were there. We had access to the kitchen at all times and John and the other guests were full of good ideas of ways to best spend our days (and nights).

I hope you visit New Orleans and if you do you must stay here. Just read the reviews!

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms off the street if you are a light sleeper.
