Lions Inn

2517 Chartres St , New Orleans, LA 70117 USA (Show map)


Perfectly located near the the French Quarter yet apart and distinct. Walk or use our bicycles in and out of town or just relax in the peaceful garden and patio with a book or use the WiFi access by the swimming pool. Complimentary Cheese and wine each evening.

Great location for activities in NOLA, with an outdoor oasis for relaxing. Great Inn keeper. Spotless clean. Easy walk to French quarter and hidden gem local dining.

The room was fabulous, the bed super comfortable and the location about 5 blocks from the french quarter. Host was helpful and approachable. Pity the state changed the rule around wine and cheese time.

Nice place to stay

The location is perfect in a quiet street and not to far from action of the French Quarter.

Another great time at the Lions Inn

We always enjoy our stay at the Lions Inn. Ed is a great host. The property is nicely maintained and we can always find parking not too far away.

Relax in the Marigny

We've stayed at the Lions Inn for several years now, during Jazz Fest and the French Quarter Fest. We enjoy the hospitality, the magnificent courtyard, the refreshing pool and spa, and the eclectic neighborhood. You have the option to explore notable attractions nearby, or spend a quiet day by the pool. We look forward to our stay each year.

A good B&B but some rooms are better than other. Prefer rooms near the swimming pool and the garden. Ed is e vry pleasant host.

Stayed in the huge attic room, which was great (although slanty ceiling might make it a little limited for some taller folks). Loved having breakfast and happy hour wine and cheese in the amazing outdoor patio garden by the pool. Breakfast is continental, but enough to fill you up. Ed is quiet, but nice and helpful. The neighborhood is interesting and you're within walking distance of Frenchman's St. and the French Quarter. Highly recommend!

beautiful patio!

This is a beautiful location in an up and coming neighborhood. Easy walk to Frenchman St. and the French Quarter. Decent continental breakfast and very friendly wine and cheese hour in the very beautiful courtyard. Ed is mild-mannered and low-key but helpful if you need anything. The rooms vary a lot--we were in the attic apartment--which was very nice and big although (obviously) if you're tall you're somewhat restricted by the slanting ceilings. Definitely recommend it!

Lions Inn Review Wedding Stay

4.8 on March 07, 2016

The lion's inn is very quite and cozy. The view from our room was amazing and made the experience that much more enjoyable. This was the first time we stayed at a bed and breakfast and would like to do it again next trip.

Une maison très agréable avec un jardin si joli
