My wife and I stayed at the French Market Inn for 4 days. We were looking for a hotel that was not overly expensive, but still located in the French Quarter within walking distance to our favorite locations. To that end - it's perfect. Furthermore, the people who work there are very friendly and accommodating, including a request for a... More

I stayed at the French Market Inn during my birthday weekend which was the last weekend of January 2016. This was my first time in New Orleans and I chose this hotel based on its proximity to everything I was interested in doing. The staff were all very courteous and helpful. They took our bags to the room and stores... More

I've stayed here twice now and plan to be back for a third time. The hotel is in a great location, the rooms are very reasonably priced, especially the balcony rooms, which are quiet, despite facing Decatur. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are very comfortable.

I have just spent 6 nights at the French Market Inn and the place is great. Walking distance to the whole of the French quarter, it made a great base to explore from.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Like many French Quarter hotels, it is made up of sever adjoining buildings, often with 'interestingly' shaped rooms. Our was very long and thin with the bed at one end and the door and television at the other. However, it was very comfortable and quiet. The doorman and the staff at the front... More

My wife and I and another couple spent seven days and five nights at the French Market Inn and were super satisfied in all ways. One room faced "Old Muddy" and we could watch the ships and boats struggle to make the turn at this location; and one room faced the delightful courtyard on the hotels interior. Room was spacious,...

We stayed for four nights at the end of January and really enjoyed our time at the French Market Inn. The room was on small side, and you can tell it's an old building & a bit drafty, but clean and comfortable. The location is perfect - two blocks from Jackson Square but quieter at night.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
