“We'll keep coming to French Quarters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This is a gem of a little hotel. My friends and I have stayed here twice now, and we love it. We have had a King room, 3 double-double rooms, and a two bedroom suite (room 401, with a big King bedroom, a smaller double bedroom, a living room with pull out couch, and long thin terrace along the length). They were all great. The rooms are as they appear in the photos: lovely decoration, clean and luxurious bathrooms, nice kitchenettes, lots of drawer and closet space. Kitchenettes have those single serving coffee/tea makers; the one in the suite had a microwave.

We love that there is an elevator that goes straight down to the restaurant, and the terrific and lively bar there. It's a nice place to rendezvous if you are with a group. Breakfast of pastries, cereal, yogurt, coffee/tea, and juice is served in part of the same restaurant. The first time we came we never met Colin, but staff were very nice. The second time, Colin was there and I really think his presence adds to the excellence of this place.

We were scheduled to arrive on Tuesday, right in the middle of hurricane Sandy. They rescheduled us at no fee, helped with communication while phones were down, and were just so helpful in general--- right in the midst of what must have been going on in their own lives.

The location is great for a tourist. Less that 2 blocks from Times Square, but you would never know it. This block is all leafy green, brownstones, and restaurants. Eat at Becco; it was fantastic. Also, breakfast at "44 and a half" on 8th ave for breakfast.

Room Tip: Some people don't like being on street side due to noise, but we have not had problems on the se...

I recently had a 3-night stay at this property, while attending a conference at a hotel near Times Square. I arrived after a 15-hour flight, a 90 minute line-up at US Customs at JFK and a 90-minute car ride into Manhattan...and I could not have been greater by anyone more pleasant than Stephanie - who immediately announced "upgrade!" (to Room 207 next door) and then helped me schlep my luggage up to the room.

What a lovely room it was - so cozy (but not small) with pretty French Provincial furnishings and a wonderful bed to rest my weary bones. This would be an ideal room for a couples "get away" with a large (enough for 2) shower filled with L'Occitane products...my favorite!

The next morning, breakfast was top notch and the desk man (Irish chap) helped me to arrange a car to return me to JFK.

New York hotels are over priced, but I consider The French Quarters terrific value for the money. It is in a nice area (restaurant row, not far from the theatre district) and an easy walk to many mid-town Manhattan destinations.

I will be recommending this spot over and over again - and I can proudly tell people when they ask, "How did you discover it?" - on TripAdvisor, of course!

Room Tip: Although on the front side of the building, which was a bit noisy at times, Room 207 is really beaut...

We booked this charming hotel through Booking.com. When we arrived, it was early, so Colin, the wonderful consierge, offered to take our bags, and call us when our room was ready. He was friendly, funny, and informative. We enjoyed an afternoon in the city then went back to the hotel to change for dinner. We asked Colin to make a recommendation and he did, and we were pleased. Our room was located over the lounge and their advertisement warned us that it could be noisy into the wee hours, so I asked for another room. Alas, there were none in our price range, so we accepted our room (#101). It IS a small room (we didn't mind) - enough square footage for a queen bed, small desk and mini-kichenette. We were pleased to have a Keurig for our morning coffee. The bathroom was a good size with a sizable shower -great soap and shampoo! After dinner, we retired to our room and prepared to tolerate the music from the lounge...we heard NOTHING! Not even a bass beat. So both myself and my partner enjoyed a comfortable night's sleep. Next morning, we slept in, skipped the hotel breakfast and then checked out at 11AM, checking our bags again with the desk. Had a great day in NYC and after 8pm, retrieved our bags to head to to Grand Central. This was a wonderful experience in the city. This hotel is on Restaurant Row on 46th street between 8th and 9th Aves. Easy-peasy location, you can get to Times Square in under 5 minutes, and should explore the wonders of 9th Ave. If you are new to NYC and stay here, try to not get caught up in Times Square. The neighborhoods are so much more fun!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back for quiet and square footage.

Stayed overnight at this hotel and can't wait to go back! The room was wonderful -- very tastefully decorated and cozy. Almost seemed like being at home (but nicer). All the amenities are there, including a patio outside. Walking distance to all the midtown attractions but, away from the noise. The block is all brownstones so, it is very charming. Being located on Restaurant Row means that there are dozens of places to eat and drink without even leaving the block.

The staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. The manager, Colin, did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable. Just a great place to stay!

I just recently stayed here this past weekend. This Hotel is charming, immaculate, in the heart of All the best Restaurants & Theaters. The Manager and Staff catered to our every need.They went above & beyond. Each apartment offers many amenities ie. WiFi, efficiency kitchen, blow dryer ,iron & board. Keurig coffee maker, w/ everything needed to get you going. Continental breakfast, room service.
This was one of the most pleasant experiences I have ever had. I will be sure to make this my home base in the City.
The bed was very comfortable and the living area was perfect.
The balcony was also equally as charming w/ a table & chairs w/ the same flair as the rest of the Hotel.Another perk is the convenience of Bourbon Street, where you can enjoy an amazing menu & cocktails. Or just walk out the front door and you are on Restaurant row...walk a block or two to any Theater of choice. Looking forward to my next trip...TY

Room Tip: Inquire w/ the Staff who will accommodate your every need.

We stayed at the French Quarters in October this year, just prior to Hurricane Sandy. The location was excellent, being easy walking distance to Times Square, Broadway and a bit further to Macy's. Taxis are excellent in New York so we used those mainly as well as the subway when necessary. The room was lovely and clean with pleasing decor and has an excellent bathroom in black and white tones and good strong shower. Lovely to come back to after walking all day.
Breakfast consisted of croissants,fruit,yoghurt,cereals,orange juice,tea, coffee and sweet pastries as well as other offerings. Substantial enough for the start of the day and is in the restaurant or grill next to the hotel. We enjoyed a nice peaceful breakfast each morning there.
In the room itself we had a large and very comfortable bed with a nice chair and desk as well as another more comfortable lounge type chair with footstool or ottoman to relax in. I found this to be a great spot to do my travel blog at the end of the day.
The staff on reception were helpful and lent us an umbrella when it was raining etc. We were given a wrong station direction to get off at on the subway but it was only the one before the one we needed.
Tea and coffee machine is in the room as well as several different teabags, longlife milk and coffee and stirring sticks. There is also a hairdryer provided that was good and powerful.
We spent seven nights here in total and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. It is just a lovely comfortable hotel with all the necessary requirements for a nice stay.
We had only one minor problem with our room. It was at the front of the hotel and there was noise at night but as we were tired from our flight and after being out all day it wasn't too much of a problem for us to sleep.
There is also a nice restaurant opposite, can't remember the name exactly but it had the word "Mama" in it, nice food and staff.

Room Tip: Possibly choose one towards the back of the hotel.

We stayed here for 5 nights in late Sept-early Oct. We found the front desk staff to be welcoming,pleasant and helpful. We stayed in a small room (the one pictured) which had a very nice roomy bathroom. The bed did press against the wall, so it was a bit awkward getting out in the night. However, the bed was fabulously comfortable. The room was clean and quiet. We overlooked the street so saw some very interesting things! In terms of accommodation we got value for money, but for a future stay would opt to pay a little more for a larger room. We would have liked if the suite had a coupe of plates and bowls. There was a hot plate which was redundant as there were no plates set to use of pots to do anything with. A microwave would have been much better. Safe was on top of the wobbly cupboard - so didn't use it as it was too high. Breakfast was a bit hit and miss - muffins and rock cakes very very dry - but the option of cereal etc was there. The staff in the mornings were a bit dormant - we thought a few had just come from an all-nighter somewhere. That said the breakfast was enough to kid start the day. Excellent front desk service in organising our washing at a nearby laundrette. This was much appreciated and very economical. Perfect location for everything we wanted to do

Room Tip: Opt for a larger suite if you are staying for more than 2 days and ask for one on the street side if...
