Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.
U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Great place to stay! Carl is most helpful in pointing out things to do and he helps even make reservations for certain things for you at a discounted price! We looked for a gay B&B with a jacuzzi and this place was wonderful.
We used 2 different rooms and both were very enjoyable rooms with private bathroom, tv and enough space (you won’t feel cramped in these rooms) Nice friendly neighborhood as well and an easy 15/20 minute walk to the. French quarter of New Orleans. We would def. recommend this B&B and would be happy to return there.
We really enjoyed our stay here and found it a friendly, well run and well organized B&B. The host, Carl, was born and raised in New Orleans and knows the city well. He’s a fount of help and accommodating the various needs of the traveler. The rooms are comfortable and homey with all sorts of conveniences for the tourist. There is always fresh fruit, coffee and tea ready for a weary tourist. The price was certainly fair.
The proprietor is a retired university professor who enjoys providing this kind of service for tourists. Internet services, TV and countless DVD discs are available for your enjoyment. Parking is easy for a city experience and an easy walk to Frenchman Street (where locals go to hear wonderful jazz). It’s a 20 minute walk into the French Quarter- we certainly enjoyed the exercise.
This a gay-friendly B&B and my wife and I never felt unwelcome here because we were not gay.
The Faubourg Marigny is quiet, safe and a pleasure to walk through. The neighborhood cafe (Schiros?, 2 blocks away) that in any other city would merely be coffee/ pastries or liquor/bar food has outstanding local cuisine that you’d pay at least 30% more for in the nearby French Quarter. The Marigny has its own main street , Frenchman St. with music, excellent food and people. 5 -10 minute walk. The French Quarter is a 10-15 minute walk .
The guest rooms are pleasant, comfortable, each with its own bathroom. The other guests were interesting people. It was a pleasure to breakfast with them and Carl . Straight, gay/lesbian all are comfortable.
Carl and his team were very welcoming. Typical ‘gun barrel’ (is that right?) old French creole style house (two long narrow houses semi detached, though he has knocked them through into one. The room was comfortable and well decorated, and there’s a back porch onto the backyard where we you can sit to enjoy the quiet, drink, smoke…
The area is about 10-15 minutes safe walk to the French Quarter, but is more residential and less touristy, and also only a short walk to the river. Some good bars and restaurants (gay and straight) nearby. Can park safely on the street outside the house.

The location couldn’t be better – a half block from Jackson Square. Although, I should add that it is obviously in a gay friendly area, based on all the rainbow flags. If that is a problem for you, you might want to stay elsewhere. And actually, NO might not be the best place for you anyway.
At any rate, it was a good price for the location, and I will DEFINITELY be back. It was incredibly charming. The courtyard is beautiful, and they have a pool. The magnolia tree there is about 100 years old and magnificent.
While you’re down there, find a place with redfish. DELICIOUS. The Royal House was great, if not a touch pricey.
The front desk personnel have always been friendly and helpful and this stay was no exception. The courtyard is very nice, but this being winter it did not get much use, at least from us. We had booked interior rooms, which do not have a window, because we don’t spend much time in the room anyway so a view is not necessary.
It might be a problem if you are claustrophobic but it was fine. The rooms are very clean, sorry forgot to take pictures, though ours had a tiny bit of a musty odor when we arrived but it either went away the next day or I got used to it, it wasn’t that noticeable anyway. The bathroom was very clean as well, I always look their first, because if the bathroom is clean you know the room is taken care of.
The location of the hotel is perfect, especially if you plan to head to the gay bars, as the main ones in the quarter are a block and a half away. It’s a perfect location though for sightseeing and just enjoying the ambiance of the Quarter. It’s just a few blocks from St. Louis Cathedral, the French Market, and Cafe Du Monde. The location really can’t be beat.
This small hotel was just in the right spot. It was right in the center of the French Quarter but far enough from Bourbon Street to not be noisy.
The staff was very helpful with dining suggestions and even gave us some coupons for various places.
The room was a little older with wooden floors and in our case on the inner courtyard room, a bit of a hike up wooden stairs that were pretty slippery when it rained. But the room was clean and quiet with plenty of towels, plenty of hot water and a room safe – so a pretty good value for the money
This was a quaint little hotel right in the heart of the French quarter. Everyone who worked there was wonderful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The valet parking and the continental breakfast made the stay very convenient.
The interior room we stayed in was a little claustrophobic and the bathroom was nothing but the size of a shoe closet and maybe need a little updating but beds were unbelievably comfortable and the bedding and pillows perfect. We’ll be back.
It’s location in the French Quarter could not be better. We chose a deluxe room with windows overlooking St. Ann Street. The room was comfortable but a bit dated. A complimentary continental breakfast was offered each morning and was very good. The hotel is a block to Jackson Square and within easy walking distance to Bourbon Street.
The staff is very friendly and helpful in making sure you have a great time. We were able to store our luggage after checkout until we left for the train station making it very convenient to enjoy NOLA for awhile longer and eat lunch before leaving. All in all, we had a great time and would definitely return to this hotel again.

Stayed here for 1 week during Mardi Gras season. Great location for walking to all the festivities. We were able to walk to Bourbon Street, all the local restaurants, the river walk on the great Mississippi River, and to the parade routes on Canal street where we had stadium seating. We loved the in . We had a 1st floor room right off the courtyard, which is beautiful. Our room was an inside room without windows, but didn’t miss the windows at all. Could walk right out to the courtyard.
The employees here are so extremely nice and helpful. Always a smiling face and a kind word when we returned, no matter the time. Always ready to answer any question and give advice.
We did miss having a fridge in the room, but no big deal. We took a small cooler and used ice from the ice machine. We plan to visit Nola again and will definitely use the French Market Inn.
Great location just inside the French Quarter on Decatur Street facing the Mississippi River. Since its in the French Quarter, it’s close to lots of restaurants, shops and attractions. Only 1 block from Cafe Beignet, 2 blocks to Jackson Square and 3 blocks to Cafe du Monde.
Only a few blocks from Canal Street where Decatur turns into Magazine Street so its easy to hop on the #11 bus on Magazine Street to ride to the smaller quaint shops scattered along its route (the route ends at the zoo). Staff were exceptional – friendly, helpful and accommodating.
We had an inside room so no view (we knew that when booking) on the 3rd floor. Room was clean with the exception of the carpet – it needed a good vacuum along with the carpet in the hallway. A bit of noise time to time but that cannot be helped in a city where folks are coming and going at all times of the day and night. Cute courtyard with small swimming pool; only downside is the number of guests who smoked in the courtyard as there was very little air circulation therefore for non-smokers, the courtyard lost its charm. Reasonably priced and would recommend.
Lovely stay here. Front desk and porter staff are always exceptional and friendly! Beautiful courtyards and balconies. Steps away from the Mississippi River. Located in the French Quarter. Next door is PJs coffee shop. Very convenient and great coffee. There is a Keurig type machine in the rooms.

A block behind behind the building (Royal St) has a really nice Cafe Beignet, which serves beignets (of course!) and chicory coffee. I find this place to be better than the Cafe Du Monde, but that’s just me. Aside from the fact that it is waaay closer. Also ACME Oyster Bar restaurant is on the left side of the hotel (Iberville) which serves really awesome Grilled oysters.
Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights while visiting New Orleans in March this year. Overall pretty good stay and had a wonderful time.
Location wise, the hotel is at the center of French Quarter, surrounded by tons of restaurants, bars, and shops. A perfect place for people watching too, there are always something going on nearby. Got to experience all kinds of local food and drinks in the neighborhood, which are all very accessible by walking. So it’s really convenient.
The hotel room we stayed in was huge, the bed was comfy, and I like how every staff was so friendly and treated customers with respect. They have a nice yard and bar, and we got to enjoy both in both daytime and night. And despite its central location, the room was really quiet. We slept very well.
Had a great time and highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New Orleans. I had the pleasure of visiting this hotel just as Mardi Gras celebrations were getting started.
