I booked a room here for a quick overnight stay near the French Quarter to attend a concert. I've been to NOLA many times and stayed in all sorts of hotels from the contemporary to historic so was curious how this would stack up. For the price, what a hidden gem! Very quaint and recently updated. It's a great place... More

We arrived early and they allowed us to check in early without paying any extra fees. Valet was right there ready to take our vehicle after checking in. It's in a great location. The room was nice and spacious and very clean. We would love to stay there on our next trip.

This hotel is located a few blocks from Cafe DuMonde and everything we wanted to do in the French Quarter. The room was beautiful, faced the courtyard, and for the most part very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful. The floors are set up in a slightly convoluted way. There are 2 separate elevators and our friends needed to... More

We chose the French Market Inn after looking at many other hotels online prior to our recent NOLA visit. We chose the French Market Inn because of the good reviews & reasonable rates. WOW, am I glad we did. The staff was wonderful and it's located within walking distance to about everything in the French Quarter. We truly enjoyed our... More

My week-long stay at the French Market Inn was great! It's a beautiful, small hotel in the French Quarter - ideal if you're looking to be within walking distance to a lot of the touristy attractions. The staff were all pleasant and friendly. The hotel is old, but in a charming way. Everything was clean. The elevator was rather slow... More

Great place to stay...friendly and helpful staff. Very central to French Quarter and Mississippi River walks. Our room faced inside courtyard and was very quiet. Would recommend this hotel for a family/friend gathering taking place within French Quarter.

My fiancé and I planned to stay here, and due to a death in the family had to change our plans at the last minute. The French Market Inn was very accommodating. Upon arrival the front desk area into the court yard is very beautiful. The front desk persons were extremely nice and helpful. The hotel is not very big... More

The hotel is an amazing value for the price. We booked the lowest level room with no windows and we were very impressed. We chose this room because we were travelling with an 8 year old and wanted to ensure it was quiet at night. I believe any of the rooms would have been fine. The staff is amazing! They... More

Stopped overnight on a stormy evening while on a business trip. This hotel is in the French Quarter. You wouldn't notice it was there unless you saw the sign hanging over the sidewalk. It has the narrow double doors on the street typical of the homes and hotels of that day. It positively oozes old New Orleans charm. You can... More

Difficult circumstance - but handled well by hotel. Guest made reservation on Expedia late in the evening but Expedia didn't send reservation notice to hotel until after the guest had arrived - so - at the time the guest arrived, hotel didn't have any reservation. Professionally, hotel received guest and processed credit card, with notation that guest mentioned Expedia reservation,... More

When our regular hotel was not available in the French Quarter, they suggested this sister hotel. I was hesitant, however.... After spending the weekend at the French Market Inn, it is our NEW favorite New Orleans hotel! Location is perfect for walking to the Quarter, for beignets and cafe au lait, to hundreds of restaurants, and also to the aquarium,... More
