Pierre Coulon Guest House Description
The Guest House operates in a Creole cottage built in 1831 and is a classic example of New Orleans Creole architecture. It is located just 6 blocks downriver from the historic French Quarter, and just 4 blocks from the lively Frenchmen Street entertainment district.
While the guest house is on a peacful, quiet street, it is in the heart of the vibrant Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, which is a New Orleans destination all on its own. Numerous cafes, bars, small groceries, shops, art galleries, jazz clubs and restaurants of all descriptions are a short walk away. For more information on this exciting historic district, point your web browser to http://www.prcno.org/neighborhoods/brochures/FaubourgMarigny.pdf .
Much more than just a bedroom with a bath, our guest house is actually a small apartment with a private entrance that looks out onto a lush patio. Ideal for short- or long-term visits, the Pierre Coulon Guest House provides comfortable and convenient accomodations for visitors interested in several days of sightseeing, or for extended vacations. It is also the perfect "temporary home" for the business or conference traveler, with wi-fi and plenty of room to spread out and work, while still having plenty of space to relax.
The New Orleans Convention Center, major museums and other downtown attractions, and the Central Business District are a 10-minute bus or taxi ride away. The city's many colleges and large universities are easily reachable by public transporation, or by a quick, affordable cab ride.
