“Just as good during my second stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was the second time I stayed at the French Market Inn. My room was clean, the hotel amenities were just what I needed and the staff was friendly, helpful and always accommodating. I will definitely stay here again. Read my review from June 2014 for more details!

What an amazing 5 days! The French Market Inn could not have been in a better location for us. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We had a Balcony room that was spacious, clean and had a view of the river and the Steamboat Natchez. We have been to New Orleans many times, but this was our first time at The French Market Inn. We will definately stay there on our next visit to New Orleans.

My wife and I do extended road trips and always try to find good local restaurants that focus on food and not necessarily on presentation. We then go 'high end' for a few days (boutique hotels and fancier restaurants). This falls in between the two.

The hotel is very nice and clean but the rooms are quite small (at least the standard rooms). Staff is attentive and polite but do not expect high end resort attentiveness. Parking is valet and your $26 dollars a night is basically a parking fee. You can take the trolley to the Garden District and walk the rest of the Quarter (4 blocks to Bourbon, 3 to Jackson Sq. another 3 to French Market). We got a King bed, 2 people for roughly $90 a night (mon-tues). Not bad from what I could tell on internet searches

The hotel itself is what you would expect: you get what you pay for. It is modest but the room was spacious and location is really convenient for all attractions in New Orleans. We had issues with housekeeping (didn't come one of the 4 days we stayed there) and the other staff didn't see to be bothered nor offered an apology.

Room Tip: Don't choose the ones without a window :)

Located within the French Quarter. Just a block from practically everything: the riverfront, Cafe DuMonde, Royal and Bourbon Street. Check in was a breeze. Jenna at the front desk was full of southern hospitality. There is a large lobby, courtyard and tiny pool. Our room was very clean with tall ceilings and huge/heavy window coverings.

The room was quite dark; we used our headlamps we consistently travel with to read at night. There was a coffee maker and safe in the room.

The common areas in our building need a lot of attention. Most of the light fixtures in the hallways had bulbs out. The carpet is practically thread bare and filthy in the elevator. Tiles in the hallway need to be replaced since they are either cracked or missing. Trim around the elevator and doors need a good cleaning and refresh paint job.

Since smoking is not allowed in the rooms smokers sit in the courtyard. One night a group arrived around 11 PM and sat outside until 1 AM smoking, drinking and talking LOUD. We're not smokers and don't enjoy walking through smoke to get to/from our room. Ask for a room away from the courtyard.

Book directly through the hotel website for the best deal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the courtyard where smokers sit.

What an amazing long weekend! The French Market Inn could not have been in a better location for us. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Our room was spacious, clean and had a view of the river and the Steamboat Natchez. This was our second trip to NOLA, but our first time at The French Market Inn. I do believe this is where we would stay again. This place is a gem!

We stayed here over a long weekend to attend a wedding. The room was very nice, comfortable bed, and lots if ambience as the hotel is in an old building. The location is great, in the French Quarter but not noisy at all. The people at the front desk were very helpful in recommending a tour for the garden district. Close walk to beignets at Cafe du Monde a plus too.
