ew Orleans from our perspective is two distinctly different entities.
There is the day-time New Orleans and the night-time New Orleans. Their rhythms are different, their passions ebb-and-flow at different paces.
By day New Orleans' life-blood is shopping, and exploring the myriad attractions that made and still make New Orleans famous:
t night, New Orleans' pace can become slow and romantic, or frenetic and passionate. The night-time New Orleans is yours to command, to shape and mold, to guide effortlessly into the dream you've been dreaming.
Its energy rises with the delta-moon and flavors your senses with tantalizing sounds and scents.
our "home" in New Orleans is the santuary of the Lions Inn bed and breakfast. At the Lions Inn, you can be certain we will do everything we can to ensure your visit is a memorable one!
The Lions Inn...and New Orleans, a perfect combination for making memories.
