I was pleasantly surprised at how close to the action this hotel is. It was clean. The room was small but we only slept there. The service was outstanding. Great value. We were there the week before Mardi Gras.

What a gem of a Hotel. Perfect distance away from Bourbon St but right where you want to be in the French Quarter. Large beautiful rooms with character, huge beds and windows overlooking the historic courtyards. I suggested asking for a room away from main lifts and pay a little extra for a room with windows. Big thank you for...

This is a great place right and great location for strolling around the French Quarter. The room was smallish but clean and very nice. The courtyard is very nice and has a small pool. All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I'd highly recommend a stay here!

The French Market Inn is located on the edge of the French Quarter three short blocks from Jackson Square. It is not one big hotel, but rather a collection of historic buildings with interior and exterior rooms. There is a lovely private courtyard in the center and a very small pool. The staff was very professional at check in. When...

A mini-break with Mardi Gras around the corner. This hotel gave us exactly what we needed. Comfortable, clean room, location in the French Quarter with so much in strolling distance. Good reception with the staff being truly interested in us; what are our interests? can we help with a restaurant? can we arrange a tour for you? how much time...

We stayed there on a recent trip to New Orleans, and picked a hotel at random. Man did I luck out and choose a winner! This place is great! Great rooms, great prices, great location! You are within walking distance of dozens of fine restaurants, and the waterfront, and the tours of the area, and a great park with horse...

Outstanding location, friendly staff, clean, and overall a much better deal for what you get than most places in the quarter. We would stay there again and recommend to others as well. Extremely minor quibles: small room, no soap dish/holder for shower, and thermostat for the room was a little wonky but worked fine. Again, these things are quite minor...

It is much larger than expected. Nancy at the front desk was wonderful and Lonnie, the concierge/bellman was very helpful. Everyone we dealt with was very professional. The hotel is in a convenient location and the room was nicely appointed. Great courtyard to bring in your own coffee or cocktail and enjoy the evening or morning.

This was a real nice hotel. Location was perfect to get around. Close to Casino, walking distance to the Steamboat tours, and lots of activity all around that area. Staff was very helpful. Pool is very small.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
