From the moment we booked we knew we had a winner with this accommodation. Josh is very responsive to ensuring that questions are answered and everything is right. Having never been to NOLA before we took a punt on the good reviews and were not disappointed. The rooms are fantastic and huge with bed and sitting area and coffee and...

The pictures don't do it justice. The room was overwhelmingly welcoming and cozy. Josh made us feel like family and was very helpful and attentive with anything we needed. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance but also a cheap uber ride away. I have already recommended this place to my friends and family and I have only...

We went to New Orleans for a couple days before our Cruise and stayed at this fantastic Guest House. What a pleasant surprise. The room was beautiful. The location was walking distance or a fun trolley ride to everything. Joshua was a wonderful host and offered up some good recommendations. New Orleans is great and the stay at the Blue...

I liked the house itself inside and out. The owners have furnished it to suggest a bit of history. Bath is fully modern and a comfortable size - you won't bruise your elbows taking a shower. But know that the front door is a few feet from busy Elysian Fields Ave. You will hear traffic inside the apartment. The air-conditioner...

The room was beautiful, spacious and immaculate. Location was close to everything, but far enough away to be private and quiet. Josh was very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely stay at Blue60 Guest House again!

We spent a week @ Blue60 Guest House and enjoyed it very much. When we first arrived we felt like we were in the middle of a true working class neighborhood, and while that is true we found out the location was great. It was a block to a streetcar and bus that took us to where ever we wanted/needed...

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.
