Love love love this place. If you want the true New Orleans feel this is the place to stay. It will give you the feel of what it's like to live in the Quarter. A true gem. Definitely not the corporate feel. Relaxing, friendly & welcoming. Staff is great & very helpful. We will be back time & time again.... More

Great location to French Quarter and The Music scene! That being said you will be staying just feet away from some of the best music venues the city has to offer so enjoy while in the privacy of your room. The staff was delightful although housekeeping is a bit loud early in the morning. Rooms will be small but the... More

Cat, Thanks you. We love to hear that a guest has enjoyed their stay. The vocal housekeepers will be addressed. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. Please do come see us again soon to enjoy the music and maybe try walking a little further afield into the Bywater for some new music and food venues. More

I have stayed a few times, at the Frenchman; weekend trips - to check on our Marginy property, and while my husband was home on military leave. Unfortunately, I needed to cancel a reservation due to a PCS move, out of state and the hotel would not refund our deposit (over half of the cost/two night stay). As a veteran... More

Kwareroha, Thank you for taking the time to write. As a veteran myself I can tell you that the agent to whom you spoke was misinformed. Anytime a military member has to cancel and is doing so under orders he or she has only to transmit those orders to the hotel and a full refund will be coming your way.... More

David, So nice of you to comment on your stay. We always appreciate hearing that a guest had a good experience. We too love our location and love hearing that it is appreciated. The hot tub is actually a Jacuzzi and runs the same temp as the heated pool. People do comment about that though and we may have a... More

I love this hotel. I have been staying here since 1989. Frenchmen Street was a sleepy little burb back then, with just a few music spots and restaurants. It has exploded with both in the last few years. It is now the hippest spot in the city. music starts around 4p.m. every day and goes well into the night. all... More

We had a great room overlooking Frenchmen Street with a LARGE balcony. The ladies at the front desk and Joe were very helpful. They took time to make sure we had a room that worked for us. Overall one of the best places I have stayed in New Orleans. The location and hospitality can't be beat!

Frenchman street is the local's Bourbon Street. Better music, less drunk tourists, but still a rocking good time being had out on the street. This hotel fits right in. We could not decide between here and the Bourbon Orleans. This hotel was quite a bit less expensive, but we felt it would be a risk. I was concerned about noise.... More

Walkerstall, Thank you for writing. The two properties are different to be sure. We do like our little place in the amalgam that is Frenchmen Street though and are so happy to hear that you did too. October is actually one of the busiest times of year for us so it is good to hear that you did not find... More

A quick overnight trip with my bestie. We were able to book a standard room for $110, which is the cheapest I found of French quarter hotels. It's easily accessible from the interstate and has onsite parking. We were there early and our room wasn't ready but they let us park any way. "Joe" helped back our SUV into our... More

I can't say enough good things about this hotel! Booking & check in were a breeze. The girls at the front desk are the best. Any staff I encountered was delightfully pleasant.

My wife and I have stayed here before, and it was even better this time than last. It's right on the edge of the French Quarter and the Marigny, making it very convenient to clubs and entertainment, good food, antique shops, you name it. It's in a safe and relatively quiet area. Security at the hotel is very good. We... More

OlRokr, What a lovely review. Thank you so much for writing. We do love our location and are so happy to hear that you do too. Our garage is really rather a misnomer as it its actually a carriage way but I understand what you are saying. Again, thanks for writing. More
