My husband and I just came back from a 4 day stay at the Lions Inn. I can honestly say that we were very happy with the service and location. It is walking distance to the heart of the French Quarter as well as the French Quarter street car. It is in a very quiet area outside of the French Quarter. The back yard is the perfect place to relax with the koi pond, pool and hot tub. We truely liked that the Inn offered unlimited use of bikes (which is truely the only way to see the area). Ed, Floyd and the rest of the staff (espically Buddy and Nipper) were friendly and very helpful in giving advice and recommendations. We will definetly stay again on our next trip to New Orleans.
