The French Market Inn is in the MOST convenient location in the French Quarter. My husband and I stayed there for 5 nights during the French Quarter Fest. This was my 4th visit NOLA. One of it's buildings is under renovation (as of April 2014) in this historic compound. This was not a problem. Yes, the rooms are not enormous... More

My wife and I went to the French quarter music festival April 10-13 we started at the French Market Inn. This was the best Inn we have stayed at. The rooms have all been updated, the brick walls give it an old New Orleans feel and were really nice and comfortable. All of the ladies at the desk were the... More

We had booked for 3 nights at the French Market Inn through hotels.com. We had no prior knowledge other than snippets of reviews glimpsed from various online entries. The hotel is on a busy street and lappeared small from outside. We were pleasantly surprised after we checked in as the inside is very spacious with quiet courtyard and vert pleasant... More

Disclaimer: I prefer budget travel and have few demands of a hotel - cleanliness, comfort, and a good night sleep. While they're nice perks, I don't need bells and whistles, fancy rooms or ornate lobbies. So the French Market Inn seemed to be the perfect place to stay. This was my first time visiting New Orleans and the FMI offered... More

I have stayed at the French Market Inn 4 times over a 10 year period. I must admit, although it is not as "Swanky" as other places, I still find the place alluring. I read many bad reviews over the past 2 years but decided to give it another try. I will say, the renovation has given the place more... More

Two of us stayed here for 4 days 4 nights. The staff was courteous and quick to help with any concerns. Our room was simple, but pleasant and clean. The courtyard with pool was also quite nice. The location on Decatur St in the French Quarter made it a perfect location for walking.

Close to everything, rooms were beautiful, staff was very helpful at all hours of the day...would definitely stay here again! Great views of the river! Courtyard and pool are just beautiful and so quaint! Elevator is small but lots of outside staircases to the rooms. The hotel is very New Orleans!

April 6, 2014 Dear Sirs, I stayed in your hotel (French Market Inn) March 27, 2014-March 30, 2014. I left my new Ralph Lauren robe hanging on the back of the bathroom door in Room 224. I got to Houston and realized it, so I called that evening. I was told that I would be called back the next day.... More

Hotel routinely locates and returns scores of lost-and-found items each year - sorry we were unable to locate this item - no items found in the guest room. Hotel communicated timely and professionally with guest at all times. More
