Have stayed here. Found it to be a nice place. Seem to have fair prices inline with similar Hotels. Convenient to local hot spots and historic areas. Have friends that have stayed there and they all seem to thing it was fine.

if you are young and agile this might be a hip hotel - different levels and stairs everywhere. they 'tease' with breakfast incl., which is fine if your idea of breakfast is s dry bagle with a cup of danon yogurt. my room had the disgusting odor of chemical sanitizers but because of a fully booked hotel had not choice...

Went for my anniversary. Had a fantastic stay and plan on coming again! Would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff was friendly. The room was clean and the ambiance was romantic. Had a nice continental breakfast. And the price was reasonable

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. The new Year's festivities were great and we felt extremely comfortable there at Jackson... More

We checked in were given a room on the street, however were not the kind that parties all night so we requested a room away for our second night stay which the staff graciously obliged. First room was small but modern and clean bed was comfortable. The second room was poolside and more spacious with much nicer bathroom, it was... More

Not sure I would return - rest assured it is safe, and the staff is nice enough - but it is pricey for what you get, and had some issues - our room was in a back building, had to walk up stairs, then down stairs - through a little alley then there is your room, I am a bit... More

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. The room was very cute, the furniture was beautiful but there was some damage to it like knobs on the dressers were in the drawer and... More

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. More

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.

Great staff particularly Adrianna. Good blues club close by - BMC, I think. Convenient location within easy walking distance of Jackson Square and great French Quarter restaurants. Will always check availability here first when visiting NO!

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood 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.
