What an amazing long weekend! The French Market Inn could not have been in a better location for us. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Our room was spacious, clean and had a view of the river and the Steamboat Natchez. This was our second trip to NOLA, but our first time at The French Market Inn. I do... More

We stayed here over a long weekend to attend a wedding. The room was very nice, comfortable bed, and lots if ambience as the hotel is in an old building. The location is great, in the French Quarter but not noisy at all. The people at the front desk were very helpful in recommending a tour for the garden district.... More

We spent 4 nights in a lovely room overlooking the courtyard. Front desk staff were so helpful - when we requested a room change away from the elevator, they bent over backwards to get us a nice quiet room. The bellhop provided us with tips and recommendations on interesting places and events. Best of all, the hotel is close to... More

We checked in to the hotel at midnight - and wanted to go have a cocktail - the staff (very friendly and courteous) directed us to Bourbon Street (as "Bourbon Street never shuts down") We had a great room with a balcony...which was helpful because in New Orleans people can still smoke in bars, so our clothes aired out on...

The room was nice, clean, had a wonderful historic feel. Check in was pleasant and easy. I did request a room with a balcony that wasn't available at check in. Rates were a little on the higher side with no amenities offered. The secure parking was nice. The only downside I had to the stay was the noise from the... More

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the French Market Inn in New Orleans. What an amazing change (and I usually don't like change when I find a cool hotel) that has been made by the Valentino group! Renovations are a success and the staff is above and beyond (especially Jenna at the front desk). One thing people... More

This hotel is just a few blocks from Jackson Square and pretty much everything in the Quarter is within walking distance. Our rooms did not have windows, so be aware that some may not. One room was a little on the smaller side but still plenty of space and the other was nice and big. The hotel has a few... More

We loved staying at the French Market Inn. It was our first time in New Orleans and the staff was always helpful. Everything was really clean and the courtyard was very peaceful. Our room had a balcony facing the river so we could see the ships going by. We did have a hard time with the noise but you are... More

This was a great spot for me & my husband. It's about 3 blocks from Bourbon St. and 3 blocks from Jackson Square. The room was small but cozy, we didn't spend a whole lot of time in there anyway. The bed was super comfortable and everything in the room was nice, neat, and clean. Valet parking is pricey so... More
