My personal feeling is that hotels in the French Quarter need to be evaluated apart from other cities due to the age of most buildings, space constraints, hard use of rooms, etc. with that in mind, I feel like this hotel has tried to do almost everything they can, given the age of the building. Positives: the location is great.... More

We loved the French Market Inn, the rooms were on the small side but gorgeous, we had a room with a window, I did hear someone complaining that their room didn't have a window so if you do want a window specify this when you make your booking. We were facing Decatur St and didnt experience any street noise at... More

Wow! My husband stumbled upon this while trying to find a room for the weekend. Perfect find. Right on Canal facing the River, within walking distance of everything you could possibly think of! Once our car was parked, we didn't retrieve until we were leaving. Rooms are so comfy and cozy. Very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!

Excellent choice for our 5 night stay. Location is great, with lots of restaurants nearby. We saw and got to pet the cat. Staff was most helpful, the stay was a great experience. It is conveniently located in the heart of the French Quarter If windows and light are important to you, be sure to specify that you want this;... More

We stayed at the French Market Inn during the long Veterans Day weekend. The folks in reception were very nice and check-in was a breeze. Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking St. Louis St. We stayed in a petite queen room and while it was clean & well organized, the room was very small - too small to... More

I took my sister to NOLA for her 30th birthday in early November and we stayed at The French Market Inn for three nights. I booked the hotel based on the price which turned out to be exceptional for the location. What I didn't realize was that the hotel staff would be one of the highlights of our trip! Throughout...

This hotel is the perfect location with wonderful Southern hospitality. The staff are very friendly and so helpful with directions and food recommendations. It is New Orleans at it's best! We will definitely stay here again.

The French Market Inn offers a wonderful, true to New Orleans experience. Filled with history, every part of this hotel is breathtaking. The rooms are slightly small, but given its age, it should be expected with this type of boutique hotel. Blocs from Cafe Du Monde and the quarter, this is an ideal location for anyone looking to enjoy the... More
