While the property itself has a certain charm, and obviously has undergone a "facelift" in the past ten years, the fact that there is no towel bar what so ever , not even a hook, was quite odd. The hair dryer cord needed a serious wipe down and a Swiffer wet mop may have helped in removing the stickiness from...

In short, this is a great hotel. Always my first choice if I get the chance to visit New Orleans. Greta location in the corner of Frenchmen and Decatur. Nice traditional atmosphere and decor. Great sleep in the very comfortable beds.

I stayed at The Frenchman for 2 nights. The location is great - near lots of fun music clubs/bars/restaurants. Check in was easy and the front desk attendant was friendly. Breakfast wasn't really worth it. Burnt coffee, stale bagels. The hotel is very cute and old school. There's a nice patio in the center courtyard with a pool. I didn't...

This iconic NOLA Hotel is perfectly situated in Frenchmen Street in the atmospheric French Quarter. the room boasts individually refurbished and decorated traditional rooms, with a small plunge pool and incredibly comfortable beds.

Tim, Thanks for the review. It should be known though that we are in the Marigny, not the French Quarter, though that is just across the street. The band was wonderful We hope to see you again real soon and maybe have another special performance of some sort.

Great location on Frenchman St. Great staff, beautiful area and hotel. Some things need a bit of work. The AC was LOUD, the toilet was very wobbly, the suitcase stand was broken -- not usable. It's an old building so one has to lower expectations.

This is a safe, secure, place to stay in New Orleans. It is a small, eclectic hotel that in a great location within walking distance to the French Quarter, Frenchman street clubs and restaurants. The prices are great! This last visit in October the lobby was decorated for Halloween and smelled like Autumn. So charming and cozy!

The Frenchmen is a typical NOLA hotel in that it is old. But, it is clean, comfortable, great staff, great location, food all around, in the heart of the Marigny and all the clubs and music on Frenchmen. I've stayed before, and I'll stay again when I need to be close to this location.

We love the Frenchman and always enjoy staying there. The staff is always helpful and the access to music is perfect. The only thing was the water in our shower was barely warm and never hot, this got a bit old but the rest of our stay was lovely.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
