About Rita Rans

Love the city of New Orleans and all of the quirkiness it has to offer. I've lived here 16 years and think the Marigny is the best.

Why Rita Rans chose Marigny

Guest house is close to everything and walking distance to the French Quarter, Frenchman Street and St Claude. Coffee shops, galleries and bars are only blocks away.

Wonderful hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming, cozy spot. The outdoor seating area was lovely and we loved the upstairs bedroom. Rita was a great host and check in/check out could not have been easier. Thank you for helping make our trip to New Orleans perfect!

Oasis near the city

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Rita's guest house. Small place, perfect for a young couple looking to spend days exploring the city and have a place to come back and relax. Cable tv, AC, fan upstairs made the stay comfortable.

The 15-20min walk to Frenchman/French quarter helped us get our vacation 'exercise' in, and was very manageable. LOVED Bacchanal restaurant, though we saved that for last since it is not near the rest of the city activities. Plenty of cute cafes and restaurants nearby as well, including a great price for happy hour at the nearby Franklin, and also loved the St Roch Market. Walking in Crescent park was fun, and doing a self-guided walking tour of the historical homes in Garden District is a MUST! Easy to find some on google.

Loved NOLA and Rita's place, and can't wait to come back again!

Wonderful host, charming house

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things about Rita’s sweet little guest house and her warm hospitality. The house is in the rear of the main house, with a mini fridge and microwave in the downstairs area, and a little bathroom to the right. Spiral steps go up to a comfortable bed. Small but cleverly laid out and comfortable for us, two adults at 6’4 and 5’6. Rita is kind and responsive. We will definitely be staying here in return visits to NOLA. It contributed to a great visit :)

Hip, Cozy, Comfortable and Quiet in the Marigny

  • 5 of 5

Location is Prime and Quiet enough to ensure you'll get your Zzzzz's. Stroll to Cake Cafe for breakfast. Head to Paladar 511 for a tasty dinner. Frenchman is easily within reach as well as all the fast-changing updates on St Claude. Guest House is a gem of design, with micro-detail to efficiency and economy. It all works beautifully. Host is as accommodating as can be. Home run for any NOLA traveler.

All of the details make it a superior stay!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I have booked with Rita for years now. Whether we're in the back guest house or the front apartment we know we will be comfortable! The spaces are impeccably kept, beds are comfy, needs are anticipated and the location can't be beat! If you want to be a tourist you're within walking distance of the French Quarter. If you want to chill-out with the locals you're just blocks away from the action. I especially love it's location removed from the street-- makes decompressing all that much easier. There's a lovely small area to get some sun and drink some coffee and watch the koi.

Put all of this together and it makes this a great place for relaxation in a city that can be a non-stop party. Can't wait to go back!

Tiny but clean, comfortable and romantic

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again. Friendly, colorful, quiet neighborhood. It is a few blocks to the cable car and not far from the French Quarter yet we realized Marigny neighborhood has a lot to offer. We especially liked Silk Road and Marigny Brassiere for dinners and New Orleans Cake Cafe and Press Street Station for breakfast. For live music we loved Maison and The Spotted Cat.

The winding staircase is very narrow and steep - (near hybrid of stairs and a ladder) so that may be challenging or annoying to some (especially to get from bed to bathroom in the middle of the night) but for a few nights stay for us it was fine.

The kitchen is more for heating leftovers in the microwave or making coffee/tea but it is New Orleans. Save your money and EAT OUT. My only regret on that is that we should have sought out cheaper places to eat to as not totally add to the neighborhood gentrification.

Rita was available and friendly when we needed her but otherwise she left us alone which we liked. Look at a map of the trolley before you go and you'll realize how convenient it is to get around.

If you tend to bicker a lot and NEED SPACE in your house frequently from your mate do realize this tiny guesthouse may prove challenging. :-)
