My fiance and I stayed at the Frenchmen from Dec.29-Jan.3 for NYE and the Sugar Bowl. From the moment we walked through the door, everything was absolutely perfect! It is an old house turned into a boutique hotel. We had a room with a balcony facing Frenchmen St. The ONLY negative was that the bar across the street jammed until 5 am! It is a great place with awesome music, but its not so awesome when you are trying to get a good sleep. We didn't even think about that, however it wasn't TOO bad. (The balcony was worth it!) Very charming, bed was very comfortable, and everything was nice and clean. Frenchmen St. has fabulous little bars and restaurants, and everything is within walking distance from the hotel. There is a nice little pool and hot tub. The hotel itself is very quiet. We will DEFINITELY be back!!! And to add what the others have said before me, the manager Kenesha is the BOMB!! We needed our Sugar Bowl tickets printed, and she let us use the hotels printer so we wouldn't have to deal with it at the game.
