Took my husband away for a few days for his birthday. I decided to try a BNB for the 1st-time, hoping it would make the trip memorable. So glad we stayed here! Alison welcomed us (I like her vibe!); plus she was so helpful. This home has beautiful architectural details & incredible original wood floors. We had the Sweet Olive...

We just spent 3 nights and had a lovely stay in New Orleans. Alison is a perfect hostess who goes over and beyond for her guests. She made us feel like family. It's an ideal location, especially if you enjoy hearing fabulous music every night. It's a short walk to Frenchmen's St. where you have the best there is to...

What an awesome place! Allison, the Innkeeper, was there to greet us when we arrived. She made us feel right at home. Breakfast was great because it was during a time frame and not a specific time. It was so nice to come "home" each evening to a beautiful, quiet atmosphere.

This was one of the best travel experiences I've ever had. The owner is so incredibly helpful, and she had tons of recommendations for stuff we should check out during our visit. Very clean, vintage feel, murals on the walls, we had a private patio. Breakfast was always delicious, and the wine/beer in the shared mini bar was very affordable.

M ywife & I had a lovely stay at Auld Sweet Olive. Nancy provided a great atmosphere and was a helpful & great host. The location is great; on a quiet streat, but within a short walk of Frenchmen Street & another 5 minutes from the Quarter. Will stay again on my next visit to NOLA. Highly recommended!

The B&B is very nice and the garden smelling of the fragrance of sweet olives so lovely! The hostess was very friendly and welcoming, giving us suggestions for tours and restaurants, even booking a couple of tours for us. The location turned out to be farther from the French Quarter than I had expected, but there were some good restaurants...

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.
