One block away from Frenchmen st and all the music they have to offer but still a quiet area. The place was charming and we loved the courtyard. Doors/walls are a little thin, you could hear other guests talking outside. Also the rooms could use an extra chair/table. Otherwise the place was great. Comfy bed.

This was our first trip to New Orleans and i really wanted to stay in a hotel that looked authentic to New Orleans and not a chain hotel.

Loved this hotel. Location was top notch as it was close to everything - the french quarter, the french market, and frenchmen's street where there is a ton of nightly jazz music. I had a king suite and it was huge, well kept, and very classy interior. The bed was extremely comfortable as well. You also know its a great...

There are many advantages to staying at Lamothe house. All rooms are very clean, nicely decorated, and have beautiful wooden floors. The proximity to The French Quarter and The Bywater area is a great asset. A walk through the closely located Crescent Park is a must. The park is beautifully landscaped and offers a magnificent view of the city from...

What a great location! I had a wonderful time, the pool and hot tub were great! Rooms are small- to be expected with the location. The hotel is beautiful! It is a historical place! Right down the street from the French market!

I chose this hotel for my friend's bachelorette weekend as I wanted us to stay at place with authenticity and character. We had three rooms in total and each were extremely spacious and charming.

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)
Nestled in the ancient oaks of Esplanade Avenue, the ornate architectural detail of the past meets modern comfort and convenience in our restoration of the historic Lamothe House hotel. Featuring an elaborate courtyard accented by mature landscaping, a garden pond, and a refreshing pool, peace and relaxation are just steps away from the thrill the Crescent City has to offer.In addition to 30 guest rooms refinished in traditional style, five Grand Antique Suites have been preserved from the original 1839 construction of the home of Jean Lamothe, a wealthy sugar cane planter of French descent. Furnished with antique furniture & artwork, the detail and charm that exemplifies old New Orleans is accessible to today’s traveler.Not to be overlooked is the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood the Lamothe House calls home. Here visitors will find Frenchmen Street, often referred to as “the local’s Bourbon Street”, which features some of the best local music and cuisine found in the French Quarter.Whether it’s your first or your next visit to the Big Easy, find the authentic New Orleans experience you are searching for at the Lamothe House. ... more   less
