A Jewel in New Orleans.

5 on October 19, 2014

Everything about Lion's Inn was so enjoyable. The garden/pool area is superb: beautiful, relaxing and a great place to mingle. The proprietor was wonderful. Breakfasts perfect. Great location in the city---very close to trolley but calling for a cab worked very well also. No hesitation in returning....actually can't wait!

Great Place to Stay!!

This was my 4th time at Lion's Inn , and again, I love it!!!! We stayed in the Sunroom, again, and it was wonderful. The rooms door has direct access to hot tub and pool. Of which I'm a huge fan!!! Ed, the owner/operator , is always on hand for suggestions regarding New Orleans info, and is very attentive to customer needs. The Lion's Inn itself is just a short walk from Frenchman Street, where there is tons of activities, clubs, restaurants, etc....... I cannot wait till next time!!!!!! Anamaria Y.

Very good value

The calm of the house being though perfectly located to visit the city, and enjoy night life, the outstanding garden and swimming pool make this property quite perfect for travelers during summertime. Our host was very nice an discret at the same time.

Great oasis

3.8 on September 29, 2014

Great location - 5 min walk to Frenchman St, 15 to French Quarter. Beautiful pool, complimentary wine & cheese each evening - met great people during this. Breakfast was continental & quite satisfactory. This will be our go to place for New Orlwans from now on. Can't go wrong for price and location - the pool was fantastic to cool off each afternoon.

backyard oasis in the city

4.4 on September 25, 2014

The bed was so comfortable. The backyard oasis pool area was the perfect antidote to Burboun St. The room very clean. The towels were a bit old and thin though. A very enjoyable stay.

Best place just outside of the French Quarter.

Four blocks to the French Quarter ,the open market or the trolley station. Everything was clean,nothing needed repair. Back yard has a garden ,pool and hot tub , just like the pictures.Free breakfast , For the money , it's as good as it gets.

Wonderful stay!

I stayed at the Lions Inn for a birthday trip I took to New Orleans. The Inn was absolutely gorgeous, had a great location, and was really tucked away, even though it was in the heart of the city. My room got upgraded, which speaks towards the customer service. Ed remembered how my dog was uncomfortable in front of other dogs and was sensitive about that...incredible!!

Fabuleux séjour

Accueil très sympa endroit calme a 2 pas du centre a recommander sans hésitations gentillesse et disponibilité . On se sent comme chez soi . Le jardin et la piscine impeccable en un mot PARFAIT

Best neighborhood and very charming place to stay

5 on August 25, 2014

The neighborhood is great, right next to the french quarter with a lot of nice restaurants and cafés. The room was very comfortable, the bathroom very clean with towels. The pool and garden was very charming. Delicious breakfast every morning. And the owner was very welcoming. We'd definitely go back there.
