Blue60 Guest House Blue60 Guest House

Welcome to the Blue60 Guest House. I’m Joshua, the owner, and my manager is Will. Also in the photo is our house cat Colette, who can’t seem to get enough attention from guests. We strive to make your stay with us as memorable and enjoyable as possible, while discovering what New Orleans is all about.

Rated one of the best New Orleans guesthouse on Tripadvisor, the Blue60 is located in the heart of the Faubourg Marigny District. This convenient neighborhood has charming restaurants, outdoor cafes and live music clubs, all within a 10 minute walk. The Blue60 is a 15 minute walk to the French Quarter, one block from the shops and music on Frenchman Street, and a half block away from the Rampart St - St.Claude streetcar stop (the streetcar is temporarily out of service at this stop until further notice). Across the street is a convenient supermarket with a wide selection of prepared foods & alcohol, as well as a Starbucks. Live like a local in a historic house built in 1842. We look forward to welcoming you.

The Lush Outdoor Environment

The Blue60 offers a unique outdoor environment where one can relax in an oasis from the outside world. Nothing beats unwinding on one of the outdoor patios surrounded by lush plants, couches, chairs and tables where one can eat, drink or socialize outside. To top it off, take a dip in the large hot tub to soothe tired muscles after a long day of exploring the city.

Escape to Nola

Located in the heart of the Faubourg Marigny District, you will be within walking distance to numerous attractions, charming restaurants, cafes, and live music venues. The Blue60 Guest House is one block from Frenchman Street and a ten minute walk to the French Quarter. The Rampart -St Claude Streetcar line stops half a block from the guest house (the streetcar is temporarily out of service at this stop until further notice), and is one of the best ways to explore the city.

I am passionate about photography. The very name of the guesthouse reflects this interest. ‘Blue60’ is a photographic term describing the incredible color of the deep blue sky that often occurs in the hour from sundown until dark. The images on the guest room walls are my work and can be purchased if interested. Additionally, If you want to dabble in the art of photography, I offer personal instruction upon request.

I have recently embarked on a new photography project using the old 19th century process called tintype photography. If interested, you can pose for a photograph giving your portrait a genuine old time look.
