Hotel entrance is very nice and you are expecting to get rooms as nice as the entrance but... even if we have asked for quiet rooms during the booking, they gave us 2 rooms on the street... heavy traffic, not quiet at all... poor elevator, definitely needs to be renewed. Rooms were dirty, as well as the rest of the... More

We stayed for a long weekend from May 22-25. Tha room was large and clean. The bed was comfy. The staff was friendly and helpful. I only saw Patrick the cat once, totally adorable. The pool is small, but just what you needed after walking the French quarter. Our room had a small balcony over the courtyard. It was a... More

A lovely very old hotel with small clean rooms. The floors and walls are not straight but everything works. The hall ways are narrow and it I always feels like I've stepped 200 years into the past when we stay here.

Our third floor room facing the street was great. We thought it might be noisy but that was not the case. The location was great. Our double room was basic but very clean. We had a few problems with our in- room safe but the problem was resolved quickly. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again!

Exposed brick, a small pool, a surprisingly spacious internal courtyard, makes for great ambience while the location can't be beat. On the lower end of the French Quarter, close to everything. But also off a quiet street, compared to some of the others.

An older hotel that has been refurbished but retains unique details. I had what they call a "petite" room and it was fine for a single traveler--queen size bed, desk, large window overlooking street. The staff was lovely and helpful. While the hotel is nice, the real bonus is the location--close to restaurants, bars, French Market, Cafe du Monde and... More

This is a wonderful old set of buildings that feel like a little oasis from the festive streets. We stayed in a lovely (small) deluxe room with exposed brick and beams and two windows overlooking where the steamboat docks (also some parking lot). The rooms are a bit dark even with the two windows but had a really great feel... More

Pretty rooms but I couldn't get over my encounter with front desk clerk Susie. Susie was very rude and condescending and not capable of saying sorry when she has made a mistake. We stood in line to check in someone came in the desk clerk knew she allowed him to cut the line ahead of us and he didn't have... More

Hotel was nice, staff is awesome, I will be back this time I will request a room with a window. Everyone at the hotel has excellent hospitality skills, they are friendly, cheerful, and they always say hello. It was my first trip to New Orleans and the French Market Inn made it a memorable one. I love Patrick the hotel... More

My boyfriend and I managed to catch a sweet last-minute deal on our HotelTonight app. We were indeed fortunate to have stayed at the French Market Inn. Given it was my first time in NOLA and we only had 2 nights, location is of utmost importance. Hence, staying in the heart of the French Quarter was a wise choice. French... More
