Perfectly located hotel in the French Quarter. Close to most things but far away from the party on Bourbon St. I had an interior room which was bigger than expected. The staff was excellent and always ready to give suggestions or answer our questions. The only minor issue was that the Wifi connection was not that great especially in the... More

when in New Orleans I like to stay in the older quaint hotels of yesteryear. This was a great pick. Short walk to the Mississippi River, Cafe Du Monde, Jackson Sq, Central Grocery etc.... Quiet rooms. A/C worked well. No problems at all in our room. Check-in was great w/ friendly front desk help and the baggage assistance was awesome... More

First impressions of the French Market Inn was impressive, with period style decor, a door man and a bell man at your service. We stayed six nights and had a double bed room, second floor over looking the pool and courtyard. This room was small and only a chair at the desk to sit on. It was dark as the... More

We loved the atmosphere of the old buildings. Room was very clean and comfortable. Courtyard with fountains was quiet and a nice change from the pace of the Quarter. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend parking across the street at the public lot even though it costs a little more, because the valet parking was a little slow.... More

Kudos to jlr51, who helped me so much. Her advice was outstanding. A find. Ideally located to explore the French Quarter by foot. We were in room 227 with a balcony facing the courtyard. A gorgeous, spacious room. Bathroom decently sized. Very clean. We liked the room design with exposed bricks and comfy chairs. The hotel consists of several renovated... More

Visiting from Australia without a car, the location was great. Convenient to waterfront, French Quarter, and city tours. Very clean and rather quaint. Staff were very helpful and friendly, especially Denise and Nancy. If anything, we did have to ask for room items, like cups and coffee, which were not replaced consistently. These were then given immediately, without hesitation. Will... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
