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

I was in New Orleans for a work conference with a quick day vacation tagged on the end, and I didn't want to stay in the corporate hotels by the convention center and warehouse district. Man am I glad I chose the French Market Inn. The place is just beautiful and really captures the uniqueness and historical significance of the... More

Stayed three nights over Halloween 2014. Our room had no window but otherwise clean, nicely done and just enough amenities. With no window, room stayed dark in the morning to sleep in. NOLA has great sites and night life. The concierge ordered cab for return to the airport, desk people were very nice and gave good advice on how to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the French Market Inn 4/16-4/20 and we absolutely loved it. This hotel is a hidden gem. The location is perfect. You are close to everything first timers in NOLA want to see, but in a nice safe area where you'll able to get a good nights sleep. Walking distance to The French Market, Bourbon... More
