This fantastic Inn is a couple of miles from the city centre but in a part of New Orleans that everyone that visits should experience. At first glance the neighbourhood didn't look as I expected, but spend some time and have an open mind and you realise that it is actually a thriving and friendly community dotted with local bars,...

Found this little Inn on Trip Advisor and went straight to their website to see if it was really as good as it sounded. It is. The Bywater neighborhood is turning around and we felt safe in this quiet home/hotel. Owners Kelly and Michael live in the front one-story half and the rear two-stories are divided into four beautiful suites...

I stayed at the Lookout Inn with a few other couples. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The real charm of the Inn lies in the backyard where there is a nice pool, hot tub, covered alcove with sofas and chairs, and a bar area. It was the perfect place to relax after walking around all day through New...

From the minute I contacted Kelly, I knew I made the right choice in booking the Lookout! There were 9 of us traveling together and we rented all four suites and still had enough room for more people. The suites are EXTRMELY clean, theme decorated and quiet!

On arrival, the Backwater neighborhood didn't look safe! Kelly reassured us and once we acclimated, had a fantastic 4 days. The Inn is warm in character, clean and charming. Fine dining in funky, but welcoming restaurants close by. Street parking was fine and driving around the community, renovations are occurring everywhere with lots of art studios, etc. Within 5 years...

Affordable, clean and soooo cute. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary but still lavish, stay here. Kelly the owner is so nice and helpful. She even held my bags for a bit so that I could go visit Villalobos Rescue down the road. (It's within walking distance by the way!) I'd definitely stay here again.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Laid-back luxury in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. Four meticulously-renovated suites include private entrances, baths & living rooms, queen beds & sleeper sofas. The backyard paradise with a saltwater cocktail pool & hot tub, cabana with wet bar & bathroom is perfect for small parties, casual meetings or romance. Employees disappear unless called upon so with only 4 suites, guests often feel they have the "place to themselves". ... more   less
