'The Marigny-French Quarter area offers a number of diversions, from architecture to dining and nightclubbing. It is a quiet neighborhood, bohemian in character with resident artists, writers, actors and musicians, but near the excitement. Bed-and-breakfast guesthouses, such as Creole Inn, dot the streetscape, allowing a visitor to experience New Orleans' distinctive lifestyles firsthand.'
The neighborhood is home to the hip Frenchmen Street area with its well-known restaurants and a variety of grassroots music clubs, popular with locals and tourists who are in the know. Restaurants include Marigny Brasserie (Creole), Praline Connection (Creole soul food), Hookah Café (Indian), Wasabi (Japanese/sushi), Mona's (Middle Eastern), Sukho Thai and Thirteen (vegetarian). Live music with food and drink may be experienced at boites such as Snug Harbor, the Spotted Cat, Café Brasil, Checkpoint Charlie's, d.b.a., the Dragon's Den and Ray's Boom Boom Room. Area coffee shops, including Café Rose Nicaud, Flora's, Z'otz and the Sound Café, invite indoor and outdoor conversation, and excellent vantage points for the passing scene.
Come stay with us and you will understand why The Creole Inn is considered New Orlean's best kept secret bargain and everyone's home away from home! We are in the midst of a lot of local restaurants and also have a 24 hour laundry and grocery store just aroung the corner!!!
A Note about post-Katrina New Orleans...
We are pleased to announce, despite media impressions,
the historic areas of New Orleans that international tourists and business travelers frequent such as the French Quarter and the Historic Mariny where the Creole Inn is located were not flooded during hurricanes Katrina or Rita in 2005.
