Our deluxe guest rooms each feature designer fabrics, luxury bedding, private baths, 66-cable channel flat screen TVs, clock radios with iPod docks, antique/reproduction furnishings, free local calls and more.

In addition to the perfect weather the first week in May, we had the benefit of the perfect host. John is friendly, informative and always available for any questions, problems or suggestions you might have. His restaurant suggestions were spot on and he had lots of background about the city to share with us. Maison Marigny is charming, clean and well located. The new patio is a special delight. Full days (and nights) of enjoying the city as well as super comfy beds assured us of a really good night's sleep. It was an effort to roll out in time not to miss John's yummy breakfasts. We are already planning our return!

This B&B is located near the French Quarter and within walking distance to Frenchmen Street. The Courtyard room was beautifully decorated with tasteful period furniture. We found the owner friendly and helpful. Only slight disappointment were the breakfast's; while good, served small portions, and not gourmet that we experienced in other B&B's. If you are looking for a big breakfast to get you on your way for a full day of activity these breakfast's won't do it. Other than that our stay was nice.

I had the responsibility to make reservations in NOLA for a one week vacation for seven good friends from all over the country. The pressure was on me to come through for the group. After talking with the owners or agents of several properties, I decided on La Maison Marigny... and I'm glad I did. The property and the owner, John Ramsey, exceeded our expectations in every way. The rooms were clean and very well equipped. The breakfasts were outstanding. And a big plus that we didn't expect was John's willingness to give us recommendations for dining, music and attractions; he even made some of the reservations for us. The only downside of our stay at La Maison Marigny is that I have now been drafted by our group to do the research and make the selection for our next vacation on the Oregon coast. Thank you, John... I think.

La Marigny's location is perfect for an easy walk to the French Quarter and an even easier stroll to Frenchmen's Street that has all the jazz you need, night after night, with no tackiness like the Quarter. The B&B itself is well appointed and beautifully done and super clean. The owner comes every morning to cook a yummy breakfast and he leaves wine, liquor and snacks too. Thus the room rates include a fair amount of savings on food and drink during each day. Also John your host knows New Orleans well and advises on great places and will help do reservations too. I was there for a whole week with a group of friends who vacation together every year in different places across the USA. Having done this for ten years, we voted our stay at La Marigny the best of some wonderful places. We will all return. It's like home now. Only better. Signed...Happy in Houston

We have stayed in B&B locations around the world and this location was by far the best. It was located in the best position to walk to the French Quarters, Fisherman's street and the Treme. The owner John was very hospitable and such a very nice person. He made you not only make you feel at home but it felt like we were long lost friends. The house was beautiful and very clean as well. John and Dewey are doing a great job! We are coming back again...

Stayed for a quick getaway right after Mardi Gras and La Maison Marigny was the perfect choice for us. John greeted us at the door with a big smile, setting the tone for the rest of the weekend. Nice conversation and orientation/advice over a cool beverage followed, then a quick tour of the room before we settled in. The location has been mentioned here before and is,in my mind, perfect. Close to everything yet not in the middle of it. Frenchmen Street and Bourbon Street nightlife both just a couple of blocks away yet who wants to sleep in the middle of that noise? Not me! LMM is the perfect alternative. Breakfast is simple but very tasty. Muffins scones and biscuits, with coffee, juice, fruit and yogurt. Cereal too, I think, but I didn't try it. Overall, you get a lot (free internet and wifi, free soft drinks, etc.) at this inn. Try it.

Fourth trip to La Maison Marigny and couldn't be happier. We're from Minnesota and make it down to New Orleans every winter and will actually change our dates to match availability at La Maison Marigny and to spend time with John. Every morning, we enjoy fresh muffins or scones, fruit and conversation. Oh, and the New Orleans chicory coffee ain't bad either. The best thing: LOCATION. Many places say "near French Quarter" but they really aren't. This one is. Walk out the door and you're IN the Quarter in about 30 seconds. :-) Highly recommended to everyone! John will make you feel welcome.

Our stay at La Maison Marigny in New Orleans was one the best parts of an amazing vacation to one of the greatest cities in the world. While we wore ourselves out exploring as much as we could of this amazing city, we were always happy to come back "home" to La Maison Marigny each day. The location in the wonderful Marigny neighborhood is perfect...close to everything we wanted to get to and being just outside of the French Quarter, it was always quiet and peaceful. Our room could not have been more comfortable and inviting and the house cleaning staff (courteous and pleasant whenever we did happen across them) keep the home spotless. Our host John will remain one of the best memories we had of our entire trip. He is an amazing host, finding us just the right spots to eat and making our reservations for us. He is nice as can be, great to converse with, funny as hell, and made us feel absolutely welcome from the minute we stepped foot in his beautiful home. We will be making a return visit to New Orleans and we will not even consider staying elsewhere.

La Maison Marigny B&B is truly in a location that cannot be beat. The room was comfortable and clean. John is a great host and will offer any advice as well as dining recommendations, attractions, etc. Having said that, the breakfast provided is small and with no variety; while John bakes fresh muffins every day it would be great to be offered a larger breakfast and more variety (rather then cereal, yogurt, fruit salad, and muffins every day). Overall, thanks for a good stay.

We celebrated our 5th Anniversary here for three nights. We were thrilled to find the suite we wanted was available at least two of the three nights we wanted to stay. However, we really wanted to come one night earlier and called John about posibbly grabbing a room upstairs... we saw that there was one avaible the night of our anniverary the night before our suite reservation-lucky for us! Upon arriving at the BnB John met us and was extremly welcoming! The house is beautifully decorated with antiques and top quality linens and decor. The room we stayed in the first night was delightlful! I would have been perfectly comfortable to stay in this room for the entire visit. The bed was heavenly, and the BnB was so quiet you'd never know the whole place was occupied. We were excited to discover that a Hollywood celeberity from a famous vampire film series was staying at the BnB on our first night! We only caught a glipse of her, but it was fun to have a celebrity spend the night in the same house! We moved into our suite the next morning. We were amazed at what a perfect location we were in staying here... just a ten minute walk to the hub of the French Quarter and less than five minute walk to the famously popular music district refered to as the Frenchmen district. We awoke each morning to the intoxicating smell of fresh brewed coffee and even though laws require BnBs to serve only a continental breakfast, John goes out of his way to give it very personal touch. One night after retuning from the Frenchmen Jazz district, we returned to the BnB to a note "fresh baked chocolate chip cookies in the oven!" What a treat! We are regular visitors of BnBs and we choose them over hotels for a reason, because we want to feel the true spirt of the area not an impersonal hotel room that has no character. Staying at La Maison Marigny gave us all the charm, spirit, and elegance we hoped for... it is the Best of New Orleans!

fresh-baked muffins, biscuits and scones
We prepare multiple items but guests rave about our fresh-baked muffins and scones. Examples include chocolate-raspberry, lemon poppyseed or banana nut muffins. Or how about cranberry-orange, blueberry or apple cinnamon scones to complement fresh-ground New Orleans-style coffee with chicory?
