We love this place! Have been coming here every new years. The staff is very courteous and helpful with ideas of places to visit. Very convenient location with easy access to the quarter and the french market. Canal St. is only a ten minute leisurely walk.

This hotel is close to all the action. We parked in a lot that was very close by and affordable so don't worry about that if there is no parking available at the hotel.

Great location with access to parking. Lots of music and food options. Cozy hotel & RJ at reception was great. Rooms were exceptionaly clean. Only complaint was that room 302 in right on Frenchman st. And the noise was very loud well past 4:00am.

Management response:

Kloupe321, Thank you so much for taking the time to write. It is true that noise is part and parcel of our area of the city, the music area, so one should be aware that the farther back the room the quieter the experience. Again, thanks for writing.

We will certainly go to the Frenchman Hotel again. Recommend asking about different room locations when making reservations. Rooms towards front will experience relatively loud music across the street.

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.
